Reformation Day, Halloween, and Victorious Eschatology

Reformation Day, Halloween, and Victorious Eschatology

Today marks the 500th anniversary of Reformation Day; the day on which Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of All Saints Church in Wittenberg, Germany and forever changed the course of history. In Luther's day the church had drifted into a false doctrine of indulgences and a works based gospel. It was no coincidence that Luther chose October 31st to post his theses.

The Sound of Healing | Redemptive Postures Series

It doesn't take much convincing to believe that music affects mood. We all have those favorite songs that relax us, those energetic songs that get us going, and certain songs or music genres we just don't resonate with at all. Music therapy is a growing field that is seeing improved patient outcomes in hospital settings and is becoming more and more standard in the medical field. In scripture we see how King Saul was soothed by the music played on David's harp (1 Samuel 16:14-23).

10 Ways to be a Good Friend when She says “Me Too” | Walking with a Friend through Sexual Abuse

10 Ways to be a Good Friend when She says “Me Too” | Walking with a Friend through Sexual Abuse

Current statistics say that 1 in 4 women in the US have experienced sexual abuse. And that doesn't even begin to include the number of women who have experienced sexual harassment and other more "minor" aggressions that our society tends to brush off as "normal". The likelihood that sexual abuse is part of the story for you or for a woman you call friend is sadly very high.

Preparing for Winter: What Fall Gardening Can Teach the Heart 

Preparing for Winter: What Fall Gardening Can Teach the Heart 

I love October. Here in Idaho the temperatures are dropping, the first leaves of the season are starting to go from green to red and yellow, and it won’t be long before flocks of geese, like arrows in the sky, start heading south. While everyone else is rejoicing in all things pumpkin spice and fall, gardeners are already looking to winter and the fall gardening preparations they must make now for the season to come. 

Inner Healing for our Innermost Hurts

Inner Healing for our Innermost Hurts

Inner healing is a powerful tool for bringing relief to our deepest hurts. Emotional pain, traumatic memories, tormenting thoughts, and relationship issues are all things that inner healing can help. There are many models of inner healing out there, so sometimes it can be confusing what exactly inner healing is and what it is not. This post will clear up much of that confusion and help you get a sense of which approach may be right for you.

The God of Miracles

The God of Miracles

Have you ever needed a miracle? Or wondered why some people get healed when you pray for them and other people don't? We are so blessed to serve the God of Miracles, but we often struggle to believe a miracle is possible for us personally. It's so easy to get offended when healing doesn't come, and begin to believe those kinds of things don't happen anymore. Not because scripture tells us to expect the miracles to end, but because we've come to believe our experiences...or lack of experiences more than we believe the Bible. Maybe we just need a reminder of the miracle working God we serve to build our faith.

What Your Body Clock is Trying to Tell You

What Your Body Clock is Trying to Tell You

Your body clock is a powerful time piece. The meridian clock combined with your circadian rhythm can tell a lot about your physical and emotional health. Throughout the day body systems are active or resting at different times. Knowing what systems are active when can give you insight into what problems you are facing or may face soon. The circadian rhythm is that inner clock that knows to get up when the sun rises and to get sleepy when it sets. Our modern culture with black out curtains and bright electronics late at night can confuse our circadian rhythms and leave our bodies a little confused about when we are supposed to do what.

Breaking a Spirit of Barrenness

Breaking a Spirit of Barrenness

A spirit of barrenness can affect you even if you've never struggled with infertility. If you've ever felt shame at the thought of being pregnant it's likely this spirit may be affecting you.

Is Energy Healing God’s Healing? | Redemptive Postures Series

Is Energy Healing God’s Healing? | Redemptive Postures Series

Energy healing is a redemptive postures topic that I get to talk about a lot. So many different healing methods fall under the umbrella of energy healing and energy psychology that it can be confusing where the spiritual boundary lines fall. A simple definition for energy healing is any modality that works with the meridian energy system of the body to bring healing. And when I say energy I mean the literal electric currents and charges to our bodies, not some kind of weird New Age "energy". Some healing methods that fall under this category are: reiki, NET, EFT, TFT, tapping, Splankna, acupuncture, and qigong. I'll discuss three of these methods in this article.

What to do with Woundedness

What to do with Woundedness

Each of us carry the wounds that we have experienced in life. The hurts, the disappointments, the rejections. The pain is real and you have every right to feel hurt and to hold onto your pain, but it won't do you any good to hold on to your woundedness. We all carry wounds, but how we choose to respond to them makes a huge difference in levels of freedom, joy, and healing we are able to experience. Our lives do not have to be defined by our woundedness.

A Bible Dripping with Oil

A Bible Dripping with Oil

Yesterday I went on a little adventure. The previous night a friend across the country heard rumor of prayer room walls and a Bible dripping with oil just a few hours from me. A few texts back and forth and she had me connected with a new friend who is a part of the community where this sign and wonder is taking place and I was headed on road trip to meet this beautiful community.

What The Shack says about the Healing Journey

What The Shack says about the Healing Journey

With all the controversy surrounding The Shack, both book and now movie, I've had several people ask me to share my thoughts on it. While I certainly have some thoughts I could share, I find thoughts are often best conveyed by those who have personal experience with an issue rather than just academic knowledge of it. Many have shared their academic knowledge. Few have shared how the book/movie has impacted their story.

Can Splankna Help with…?

Can Splankna Help with…?

One of the questions I am most often asked about the Splankna Therapy protocol is, "Can Splankna help with...?" Some want to know if Splankna can help with a physical problem like back pain or thyroid issues; some want to know if it can help with a mental or emotional issue such as depression, anxiety, or ADHD. But what everyone really wants to know is, "Can it bring me the break through I've tried so hard to find?"

Meridian Lines and Tapping

Meridian Lines and Tapping

Meridian lines are the system of pathways in the body by which energy flows. Energy meaning: electrical, physical, scientific energy – not “mystical” energy as some in the New Age movement describe it. It is the system that acupuncturists, chiropractors, and energy psychology practitioners use to alleviate physical and emotional symptoms.

How Forgiveness Sets us Free

How Forgiveness Sets us Free

Forgiveness can be a touchy subject. We hate being told to forgive, we struggle to forgive those who have wronged us, we ache when others withhold forgiveness from us; ultimately many of us are walking around with many misconceptions about forgiveness and what it means to forgive someone. In counseling and inner healing ministry I have seen over and over how forgiveness is often the key to break through in healing. Today’s post explores what it means to forgive and how we can begin to walk in freedom.
