Enneagram: What Number Are You??

I am super fascinated by the Enneagram.  Annie F. Downs who I just think is incredible talks about it all the time.  She asks all the guests on her podcast what number they are, or tries to guess for herself.  The Enneagram isn’t about putting people in boxes, it is about understanding what makes people […]

Thankful Days 15-19

Day 15…A mystery I am thankful for.  God, that is my answer.  Now some of you may say that my faith in God must not be strong if I think it is a mystery, but I don’t believe that is true.  We know this life, these stories from the church and from the bible, but […]

Charisma

The theme of my Yoga practice this morning was Charisma. The first thing that Adriene said this morning was that we were getting down to “Brass Tacks” which means to get down to the basics or the essentials. Adriene wanted to take us back to what it felt like to be a child.  To remember […]

Healing Words

My devotion today is about the power of words.  How they can often hurt, but we need to consciously use them more often to heal.  Think about what you say before you say it. Is it True, it is Kind, is it Necessary? The charge for the devotion was to reach out to someone with […]

Ten Minutes: Sabbath

A day of rest, who has time for a day of rest? I was out of town for the last 5 days.  Wednesday through Sunday I was at an early childhood conference a couple hours away.  I had a hotel room to myself for 4 nights.  No kids, no pup, no hubs…it was pretty terrific. […]

Ten Minutes: Please Play

Today my devotional was spot on!  As it seems to be almost daily! The topic today was “please play” and it went on to talk about how important play is among the stress and seriousness of everyday life.  It is so true! I talk about this in my training’s ALL THE TIME, but have a […]

Ten Minutes: Brave Body

Last night I had a training, so I was driving home about 845.  I was by myself and my body just felt like SHIT.  I found myself reflecting on the recent past and how terrible I have been treating myself. Earlier in the day yesterday I was walking by a window and looked at my […]

Ten Minutes: Enneagram Personality Type

I have been writing a lot lately about how much I LOVE Annie F. Downs.  Well, I do, I don’t know how I lived before 2018 without even hearing about her.  She reminds me a lot of myself only she sounds like she doesn’t ever get angry or mad. Anyway, that couldn’t be further from […]

Ten Minutes: Letting Go

First of all, last night, right before I went to bed I prayed to God that he would give me a sign that letting go is the right thing. In my head it is and every time I think about it, I know it would be so good, but something in me just isn’t quite […]
