The way I see it, confident people are the people who are willing to be vulnerable. Insecurity lies in safety, confidence lies in risk. Confident people are okay with opening themselves up to things like rejection or criticism or not getting the approval of other people, even letting people down. Confident people […]
Your idols sometimes look like your blessings. The things God gives you in this life on earth are wonderful: family, friends, careers…bodies. But idolatry happens when we get our priorities out of whack. We start putting our physical health above everything. You obsess over the way you look. Idolatry is this big scary word in […]
I struggle with obsessing over negative thoughts. Everyone does. You’re probably worried about things that happened in the past or things that might happen in the future. Which one do you gravitate towards? I worry about the future more than I dwell on the past. Everything you’re worried about right now is an earthly thing. […]

No matter what your relationship status is right now, you can still enjoy Valentine’s Day! Here’s my thing: The only people who don’t like Valentine’s Day are the ones with high expectations that never get met so they act super salty about it and pretend not to like nice things. You’re telling me you don’t […]

When you learn how to understand and support your emotional health using emotional intelligence, you can harness the positive power of your feelings. That might […]
