  • Betty had what is called “a just grievance” when she came to me.   She had been treated with disrespect and broken promises in a relationship. I asked her how much time each day she spent thinking about the injustice and venting about the way she had been treated. Betty had worked herself up into a frenzy and her stress level had risen considerably. I asked Betty if she was constructively taking responsibility for what she could do to become more at peace with the situation by what she was saying and thinking, or was she dwelling on the betrayal.

  • A few months ago, I got a letter from someone I’ll call “Emily.”
    She wrote to ask for my encouragement, which is always humbling and I take these requests seriously.
    Emily said she and her husband are both Christians, but right now neither is close to God. She said her husband is depressed and that makes her anxious and afraid, unsure of when and if it will end, and what will happen because of it.

  • As national and international economic uncertainly lingers, parents have an opportunity to talk with their children about finance, budgets and money. This helps children gain a deeper understanding of how money allows families and other units, such as organizations or governments, to function. The big-picture financial news headlines provide an opportunity to teach children how those stories apply on a very personal level— to their own family.

  • Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the cool, crisp mornings followed by warm sunny afternoons. Haze is usually less this time of year. Sometimes, it seems you can almost see forever on a sunny fall day. Another reason I like fall is because of one of my favorite fruits, the apple. Who doesn’t enjoy hot apple cider to warm the insides on a cool fall day. On my birthday, each December, my wife Carole already knows what I want for dessert, apple dumplings! She makes the best!
