  • Is Trust Possible After Infidelity?

    Is Trust Possible After Infidelity?

    *This blogpost was created from the transcript of the recent Facebook Live video on the topic infidelity.  Today I'm going to be talking a bit about infidelity and deception in partnerships as well as what is required to re-establish trust with a spouse. Following any evidence of untrustworthiness in marriage, we usually hope to re-establish trust rather quickly because we don't like not being able to trust our partners.  We want to believe we are safe. We want to believe we understand the person we are with. So re-establishing trust becomes our focus and desire often but this focus may inter...

Love is what we all hope to receive and yet struggle to offer, especially when it stretches us. Perhaps this is why it is so precious. Positive fee...

  • On Being Grateful

    On Being Grateful

    Being grateful doesn't come naturally to most of us. While all of us have good things in our lives, very few of us receive the good around us. It takes courage to open our hearts and acknowledge what blesses us. Instead, many of us take refuge in entitlement. We pretend we are owed freedom from suffering. We pretend that challenges are aberrations in human experience. The reality is we all struggle and we all suffer. Not equally, of course. Injustice is a reality of life, and a sad one. But pretending we are owed a life free of pain keeps us blind to the goodness and abundance we enjoy. ...
