What Happened to Avril Lavigne??

If you have a Facebook page, then your news feed is probably being filled with articles and images of Avril Lavigne’s latest music video “Hello Kitty.” The video is a strange departure from Avril’s normal music style. And from what I can gather, the response has been largely negative—prompting comments like “stupid,” “worst thing ever,” “scarred for life,”…

I’m Happier When I Love Myself Less

Throughout my life, I’ve sampled a number of junk-food philosophies—popular ideas that may look and taste great at first, but later make me feel sick and unsatisfied. And of all the junk-food philosophies I’ve tried, there is one stands supreme: “Love yourself—a lot!” it screams. “If you love yourself a lot then you’ll be happy.” Please don’t misunderstand, while…

Blessed By Cerebral Palsy

I have a soft spot in my heart for those who have cerebral palsy. For any of you who don’t know, cerebral palsy is a disorder that is caused by damage to the brain during its developmental stages (pregnancy, childbirth, or even up to the age of three). It can cause a wide-range of physical disabilities and mental…

Why? Because laws deal with surface issues, attempting to treat the perceivable pains that come…

Want Independence

Want to be Independent, Stable, and Successful? Get Married.

You can become independent through marriage? Sounds completely ridiculous, doesn’t it? Well, it’s absolutely true. But sadly, modern culture has embraced the insidious lie of self-sufficiency. The truth is that if you want to have stability, strength, and success in your life, then you need to form loving, committed relationships. There’s just no getting around…

Text Messages from God

Text Messages from God

Not long ago, I was going through some really difficult things. In anger and frustration, I called out to God and made a few demands (sprinkled with some rather choice words). I wanted to know why. What happened next is best described as a series of text messages from God. I didn’t hear a voice…

With God Nothing Is Impossible

With God ONE Thing IS Impossible

I’ve heard it said that, “With God, all things are possible.” But I’m not entirely convinced, because I’ve met people who absolutely refuse to be helped. Let me explain what I mean. Because I’m very open about my own struggles, I get a lot of emails from people asking for help. And since I don’t…
