A love letter to my mom

Every once in a while my mom will pick up the phone to find me on the other end saying, “I owe you an apology.”

Her response is usually a stammering, “Oh….uh….okay……..?”

One such conversation happened a couple years ago – it was in the early days of The Miracle Journal, and things were opening …

Sexual healing

You know how people talk about “the first day of the rest of their lives”?  Well, this kinda feels like that because I’m about to share some things I’ve never spoken about publicly before.  And it’s big.  Really, really big.  And I’m doing it because I’ve felt like I was alone in the shadows for …

This is my pledge…

I will trust you enough to tell you the truth as I know it in any given moment.

I won’t disappear without a word. If I need space or time, I will tell you.

The chicken broth miracle

Hello Miracle Watchers!

I didn’t mean to be away for a whole week, but with the holiday craziness and then getting a nasty stomach bug…well, more days passed than I had expected.  But I’m back!

Truthfully, I’m only about half back. I’ve been in bed for two days trying to keep any kind of food …

howtoloseaguyin10days

My mentor and dear friend Rev. Nancy often admonishes me that in the movie of my life I get to choose whether I want to be in a horror/suspense script or a romantic comedy script.  And, wouldn’t you know it, when I call her, it’s usually because I’ve chosen to reread scenes from the horror …
