Q&A: How Do I Maintain Boundaries with Someone Who Has Mental Illness?

I receive a lot of inquiries from people asking for advice about living with mental illness, loving someone with a mental disorder, and doing ministry among people with mental illness and their families.

12 Ideas for Making This a Good Year

Generally, I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. I figure any day of the year is a good day for starting a new habit, breaking an old one, or pursuing a better version of myself. And let’s face it, it’s hard enough to make one minor change in life; committing to a major overhaul, all at […]

What Are You Here for This Year?

Ready or not, 2017 is here. And with this fresh year comes an opportunity to think about what we’re doing with all that God has given us. Let’s pause and talk about stewardship. “Stewardship” does not seem like a very exciting word, especially because we tend to use it in boring ways, mainly when we’re […]

Guest Post: Tips for a Healthy and Balanced School Year

This week I’m pleased to present a guest post from my number-one favorite person in the world: my husband, Trevor. I think you’ll like him too (most people do). But he’s not only a great guy; he’s also someone who has dedicated nearly 25 years to serving adolescents and their families in various ways, whether […]

10 Reasons Every Leader Should Hire a Coach

As a coach, I love to work with creative leaders who are ready for something new, helping them amplify their inner strength so they can own their purpose, move forward, and live true. So when it comes to recommending coaching, my biases are clear. So is my expertise. From my own experience, I know how […]

Want Your Life to Change? Measure and Build Your Inner Strength

Among the many quirky aphorisms attributed to the late Yogi Berra is this observation about baseball: “Ninety percent of this game is half mental.” This wacky piece of truth goes way beyond baseball–or sports for that matter. Most of our actions and achievements may be physically tangible, but they have their source in our hidden […]
