Do you want to be made well?
The Other Side of Gratitude
We're transitioning into fall, which means darker days and fall allergies! A downer for those of us with SAD and MCAS. On a positive note, we may enjoy beautiful, colorful leaves, leftover Halloween candy and pumpkin pie. Also, can we be grateful for things like divorce, the loss of a relationship or a job? Absolutely. Gratitude has many aspects to it. God knows us better than we know ourselves and knows why we think and feel the way we do. You can't "offend" God. Let's get into it...
Summer Check-in and Where Do Those Pesky Crosses Come from?
Have you heard God sends sickness and hardships to test us and make us stronger? Maybe even worse, that your illness is God "blessing" you? Not true. Let's get rid of this toxic thinking in our spirituality.
Happy Pride :)
Being Grateful For The People Who Get Us
Take time to thank someone who was there for you, advocated for you, understood you and helped you navigate your illness. Often times, these people are answers to prayers.

Anxiety and Receiving Peace
Jesus has offered us His peace, so how come it's so hard to find it?
So what now? What's next? We are chronically ill, confused and our dreams are dashed. Life looks different from what we planned. How do we find God's will for us now?
Happy Mother’s Day
Happy Cinco de Mayo and Happy National Day of Prayer!
