Title graphic for 5-0

As I finish a meal, anxiety in various irritating forms rises up and churns around in me, niggling at me and remaining until it’s time to eat again. So pretty much when I’m not eating!  I don’t like admitting that as it’s downright embarrassing! And sad! But  ::alas::  it’s where I’m at. However, that said, […]

Morning Manna • Daily Bread

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Morning Manna

A Way to Remember What I Too Easily Forget

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - A Way to Remember What I

On one of our small-group coaching calls we talked about how easily we forget the good things we know and hear about the Lord. For example, we forget about the fact that God wants to: fellowship with us… relieve the weightiness on our hearts… guide us when we are clueless as to what to do […]

I have become quite a fan of specialty coffee! Peppermint mochas, in particular. Iced or hot, both are at the very top of my list of “Ways to Pamper Myself.” Massages, manicures, facials, and pedicures are also on that list, too!

Anxiously Awaiting Zero

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - Anxiously Awaiting Zero 4

My flesh machinery has really been riled up these past few days, with food loudly and persistently calling my name, like, all the time! Awaiting zero has been harder than usual. We are taught in Thin Within that overeating – eating when we aren’t hungry – can cover raw, uncomfortable emotions, thus numbing us and […]

TW TITLE GRAPHIC - 12 Quick 'n' Easy Ways to Connect

Many have found that having a prayer/accountability partner is a huge help on their Thin Within journey. And it only makes scriptural sense:”A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” (Eccl. 4:12) Of course, the […]

Who would’ve thought that my mind needed to be renewed about apples?!?! But God has been speaking to me about them and I am so glad! What started this string of related events was that my grandson, Jonah, came up to me one day with an apple in hand and, because I was actually at a […]
