15 Ways to Help a Family Grieving the Loss of a Child

While trained therapists can provide insight into how to help grieving families, the experts on how to help are the grieving families themselves. Today's post is from one such family, and what they have found to be things that people can do that actually helps.

How to Have a Quiet Time: A Tribute to Elisabeth Elliot

How to Have a Quiet Time: A Tribute to Elisabeth Elliot

One month ago today one of my most beloved mentors passed away. Though I never had the honor of meeting her in person, Elisabeth Elliot was an amazing woman of faith and a mentor to thousands of women through her wonderful books.

How Forgiveness Sets us Free

Forgiveness can be a touchy subject.

The Story I don’t Remember: My Journey Back into Community after Getting Kicked Out

The Story I don’t Remember: My Journey Back into Community after Getting Kicked Out

This is a story I fear is far too familiar to far too many people. A story of exile, of community lost, of feeling like you have a scarlet letter banning you from society. Very often when I meet with clients it becomes obvious that one of the greatest needs in their lives is community. However, just as often it is community that has hurt them. One of the most painful ways I see this over and over is how the church beats up its own and kicks them out. This is my story of exile, of being kicked out of community and ultimately finding my way back into healthy and healing community. My prayer is that by sharing my story that you would feel hope for you own.

Eating Disorders and being Honest with Yourself

Eating Disorders and being Honest with Yourself

Eating disorders are complicated. Misery engulfs you completely, making the prospect of surviving it seem altogether impossible. As I consider some of the most trying moments of my recovery, I recall the very first step: admitting I was anorexic. It forced me to look past the stereotypes of the disorder and confess my own personal struggles of shame, self-loathe, and debilitating fear.
