Control

This journey is hard.  Harder than I could ever imagine.  And yet – God says He’s with me the whole way and I have His unlimited strength to pull from when I think I can’t go on any longer.  So why does this trigger control issues for me (and others)? I think the answer lies […]

In the Trenches

Maybe blogging in the midst of heartache isn’t the wisest thing – but if I can’t be real here, where can I be real?  Thanks for witnessing my walk through this valley…. There’s a part of me that would like to stay silent.  That part of me wants to encourage others and not weigh them […]

Dealing with Addiction

There are going to be times in this journey when you, the one who isn’t dealing with sexual brokenness personally, wants nothing more than your spouse to be healed and whole. Sometimes this will correspond with your spouse wanting it for himself/herself, but if my experience is anything like that of others, there are times […]

Weary

God has been doing great things in our lives – seriously great things. I’ve been so busy with the things He’s sent that I’ve not written in a while and I’m feeling the need to be honest and vulnerable here. Much like the flower to the right looks, I feel.  Like I need a long, […]

Believing in Your Spouse

photo © 2010 Marlon Cureg | more info (via: Wylio) Most of us who are married to people with SGA who fight against that unwanted inclination are deep believers. We believe in our spouses and we often believe in the power of God to make changes. If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be here – we’d […]

Apologies

When we left our home state, we had filmed our “story” – at least, in part.  Our church used our video (about a 5 minute clip) as part of a series called FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions.  Some of the topics in the series included “How Can I Know the Bible is True?” and “How […]

Forgiveness – full & true?

We are settling in to our new location and decorating our apartment.  It’s been a solid 15 yrs since I’ve lived in an apartment – there are definitely things I like (not having to do the maintenance ourselves) and things I’m not so crazy about (hearing the dog upstairs run around like a maniac at […]

the ultimate removal of the masks

I have been insanely busy lately – my apologies for not writing for the past 6+ weeks.  We are preparing to move across country and needless to say, my time is more than well-spoken for right now.  This is the last day before the moving truck arrives and as I look around the house, I […]

My Heart and The Desert

This CPM Conference is good.  And hard.  And stretching.  And hard.  Did I mention it was hard?  The people of Stonegate Fellowship are so beautiful – their hearts are so loving and their willingness to be servants is absolutely tear-inducing and heart-melting.  My husband and I love to serve others, and for whatever reason, it’s […]

Control

Everywhere I’ve turned the last few days, the message of “you can’t control this” hits me squarely in the face.  I think God’s trying to get through to me – and I’m listening. I finished up the winter-term of Celebrate the Journey Restore-group leading, using Celebrate Recovery materials.  That was a great thing; we had […]
