  • Keys on how to handle conflict and adversity

    Like it or not, conflict and adversity are as much a part of life as eating, drinking and breathing. Conflict and adversity serve very important purposes in our lives that are rarely accomplished by any other means. If you deal with them correctly, they will produce positive outcomes and strengthen your relationships at work and at home. If you don’t handle them correctly, they will produce negative outcomes and harm your potential for happiness and success.

  • Riding a bike like a ‘cute, European girl’

    The upside of being in my mid-forties is that I don’t particularly care anymore what people think of my behavior or my clothing. This gives me the freedom to push against what is expected from a woman my age. For the most part, hubby is totally on board when I try new things, change my style or randomly buy a house after living in the same place for 18 years. But sometimes, he’s a little too honest about my attempts.

  • Does God still bring judgment through natural disasters?

    Does God still use natural disasters to punish people for disobedience and evil? Pat Robertson of the 700 Club apparently believes God does. Just following the earthquake in Haiti he said, “Something happened a long time ago in Haiti and people might not want to talk about it. They were under the heel of the French. They got together and swore a pact to the devil…But ever since, they have been cursed by one thing after the other.”
