Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. That’€™s not true! Life on life community is the best way for a person to flourish in their understanding of self, others and God. However, when we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence stronghold that feels true but is a lie really killing you from the inside out.

Sex On The First Date?

The decision to have sex on the first date is almost always a time bomb that will destroy the potential for the relationship to succeed. When the bar is set at the physical, meaning, that the person you’ve dated is nothing more than a sexual encounter, then the chance of seeing the person, and even seeing yourself, as anything more is very unlikely. The precedent has been set and moving ahead with developing good communication, mutual respect, and a deeper trust is nearly impossible. Sex always clouds one’s judgement before a marriage covenant has been made and often becomes the greatest point of regret when that’s all that the relationship is based on.

Here’s a few questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you place value on getting sex from someone or value meeting someone special?
  • Do you define sex as something you “get” versus what sex was created for?
  • Do you have a long term plan on what baggage you might collect by living with a respect for sexuality?

My Story With A Brain Injury – Haley

My Story With A Brain Injury – Haley

Over the past 10 years self harm has become a sad and confusing way for people to deal with long term pain while using a short term escape. If you cut, burn, pick or hurt yourself to feel better about difficult or anxious situations, you know all too well that self harm, is a momentary escape that does not provide a long term healthy solution. Every episode of crisis or struggle is rooted in a deeper life issue, usually a trauma from years before that created a stronghold of emotional secrecy. As an example, you might have a fight with a parent or go through a tough time and because of the heightened anxiety, you wish to hurt yourself to release the tension within. That tension is based on years of build up from denying the trauma of a childhood event or secret from your past. When one deals with the past, and forgives the person or people who’ve hurt them, they can begin to move away from self harm as a bandaid to deal with the real injury of their soul- deep internal pain.

Struggling with Faith – Decemberadio

Struggling with Faith – Decemberadio

People who believe in God are often seen as weak or wacko. The weak need God because they’€™re unable to find confidence in themselves and the wacko use God to instill fear through terrorism and hate. It’€™s not hard to see why more and more people would choose to distance themselves from faith by association – after all, faith means to take action without knowing all the facts – right? Well, the first thing to know is that doubt and asking questions is not the opposite of faith. Seeking answers is the best way to live life. Being lazy and apathetic leads no where and let’€™s be honest – life doesn’€™t have a pause button. Time keeps moving and life will end – shouldn’€™t we try and figure out why we’€™re here, and who created us in the first place? Having faith means to take small steps towards trusting that God loves you, has a plan for you, and wants to have a daily relationship with you – questions, doubt and all.

Dealing with Bullying – Jamie Grace

Dealing with bullying is a combination of fear, loneliness, and anger. Fear that people will continue to be cruel, loneliness that no one seems to care, and the anger against the comments that people have made – not to mention the anger towards people who did nothing, even though they saw the bullying going on.

If you’re dealing with bullying you need to talk about it with someone. That’s the most important thing.
