  • The holidays can be a stressful time as we rush from place to place buying gifts, attending parties and preparing food. But for families dealing with addiction, the holidays can present a unique set of challenges.

    God created humans to have a three-element composition for use in life: heart, soul and mind (Matt 22:37). Men and women are the top of the created order in their spender and glory. All of creation was in the hand of the master artist God.

    Dear God,

    As you know, I’ve had a difficult time starting this year’s Thanksgiving psalm.

    In fact, it’s a week late.

    Life hasn’t been sunshine and roses and rainbow-colored unicorns this year, not for me and not for a lot of people. And yet, I have much to be thankful for.
