Four Question Friday and So Much More

I have been living within my limitations for about a month now, which means I have moved into frustration and irritation. I get why I have to lead a quiet life, but most of the time I am not happy about it. It seems to be this perpetual loop I’m riding – feeling good,  feeling unproductive, feeling frustrated,…

All I Have to Say

I finished the book today. I don’t have much to say, but I’ll give all the details on Four Question Friday tomorrow. For now, I just have this one quote block for you.

Worrying About Forgiveness

Forgiveness (“a wonderful gift to give yourself”) and worry (“learning to trust God is the answer to any problem”) were the chapters I read today. I, of course, found those two little gems mixed in with the other messages. What good messages they are! The Worn Out Woman (Stephens & Gray) has so many wonderful…

The People Around Us

The two chapters today in The Worn Out Woman (by Stephens and Gray), were about this topic – friends and difficult people. Boy, what polar discussions to have! They have a cute name for difficult people, “burlap” people. Do you remember burlap? That itchy, scratchy, hairy, loosely woven fabric? The only people I see using…

Good Monday!

Last week completely got away from me. From just getting home from vacation, to being sick, and then, boom!, it was Inauguration day. So, I didn’t warn you that I wouldn’t be here on Friday. I have spent the past, boy, I don’t even know how many years, reserving that entire day to watching and…

A Quote to Remember

Wow! Now there’s something to think about. I was recently introduced to a concept called Truth Journaling that a woman named Barb Raveling developed. It’s a similar idea. She has a great website with all kinds of studies that you can go through at your own pace and one of them is learning to truth…

My List

The two chapters I read this morning in The Worn Out Woman (Stephens and Gray), were about finding your joy and what you feel passionate about. They said that many of us do work that we just “get through” and don’t really find joy in. I would guess they are right. The other point was that,…

I adore The Worn Out Woman by Dr. Steve Stephens and Alice Gray. It is definitely in my top five books. It gives me such hope and peace about my life now and how my life can become.  Generally, in the books I review, I tag good quotes to use in the quote blocks I…

My Favorite Book – Ever

I thought I might do something different this time and review my favorite book. I don’t know when I first read it, but I do know I was a young mother, with four small children, leading a too-busy life and feeling that I couldn’t accomplish anything. It was a hard time.  I came across this…
