  1. Powerless Emotions

    I have been re-reading the book Keep Your Love On by Danny Silk along with the amazing students I teach in my Marriage and Family Therapy class at The King’s University. Although I have read this book previously, while reading it this time I feel like I have gained a great new revelation about emotions…

  2. Freedom from Anxiety

    Have you ever felt trapped by your own anxious thoughts? Ever feel crippled by constant worry? It’s easy to allow worry and anxiety to take over, especially in todays busy, over scheduled and hectic lifestyles. But this is not what God wants for you. In fact, the Bible talks about worry and anxiety several times.…

  3. Control = Delusion

    Sometimes it is easy to be a Christian when everything seems to be going right in your life. It feels good to buy into the delusion that we have control over anything in our lives. I recognize that this sounds like a dramatic overstatement and I also realize that many believe themselves to be in…

  4. Renewal

    re·new·al (rəˈn(y)o͞oəl/) The action of extending the period of validity of a license, subscription, or contract. An instance of resuming an activity or state after an interruption.

  5. Vision

    One of my favorite scriptures is Habakkuk 2:2, “Write the vision, make it plain, so that he can run who reads it.” Almost daily I see people in my practice who lack a vision for their lives, their family, and their future. I can’t help but think about the value of vision, but more than…

  6. Thankfulness Challenge

    Thanksgiving is truly one of my favorite times of the year. I love the fall weather (which is quite mild if you live in Texas), the fall clothing, the fall flavors, and the togetherness that each of these bring to most people. I use my words to tell people how much they mean to me…

  7. Comparing

    I can clearly remember being 2 to 3 years into a serious relationship with the woman who later became my wife. I remember the urging from her and the mounting pressure that was placed on me from her friends and co-workers about when we were going to get married. It seemed like everyone around us…

  8. Fear and Halloween

    I was watching the Today Show this week and was really intrigued by the openness of fear in our culture. During a segment on the show, they reenacted a Ouija board scene from a new movie about inviting a demon into a place. Just typing this I can’t help but highlight the absurdity of what…

  9. Dare to Dream

    This past weekend I was watching football (the Dallas Cowboys win over the New Orleans Saints specifically) and saw this commercial for General Electric http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfmQvc6tB1o I couldn’t help but hear the Holy Spirit prompt me through the words of this commercial. Sometimes we can find the will to dream in the strangest places. The voice…

  10. Rest and Prayer

    I occasionally suffer from migraine headaches. I can feel it gradually start up my neck and continue to grow all up through my head. If I don’t immediately take care of it, the migraine can consume my whole upper body and even cause severe nausea and vomiting. (I know, gross!) When I feel it coming…
