Welcome special guest, Dr. Michelle Bengtson to the blog today. She is a neuropsychologist well acquainted with depression, medically and spiritually. Her book “Hope Prevails” and the follow-up Bible study, have helped many who struggle with depression, or...
My face squinted and I stopped short when I saw it. The blog post title said, “Emotions are liars.” Although this phrase sparked head nodding conversation with others, I couldn’t agree to it. Something struck dissonance. I wasn’t able to...
We say funny things as believers. Well, funny as in a little weird. But not funny for the way they cause us to stumble in our Christian faith. The saying below is one of them. It implies that God will not let me down. But He will and as hard as it is to believe, this...

Ever find yourself struggling through life’s challenges? Maybe you’re tired and weary. Maybe fears and doubts threaten your ability to live well as a Christian.
I believe God has more peace, joy, and freedom than many of us come to know. I want this for us.

Here we’ll journey through areas of emotional health, soul care, and spiritual growth in order to cultivate a life-well lived and a soul well-nourished. Not a perfect life, but a life reliant on the One who is perfect.
