Debunking three myths about fear

Many people have myths about the fears that they face. These myths can become limiting beliefs. Since I started speaking and writing about living a life free from fear, people often share their stories with me about their specific challenges: there are some who are scared of death, are afraid of cats, of crossing the street and afraid losing a loved one. Fear is all around us. It is something that every single human being will face; however, it is our response to the fear that makes all the difference.

When your child goes through a tough time

Children are not exempt from hardships. No matter their age, challenges will come. These challenges come in all shapes and forms: growth challenges, learning obstacles, friend dynamics, peer pressure, disappointments, mistakes, and body changes.

When adventure triumphs over loss

Stories turn strangers into friends.  I asked my friend, Janine to put pen to paper so that you would be encouraged by her journey of growth and healing.  Loss and hardships are part of life, but there is always a hope for restoration.  This is her story.

A bit about me

Family means the world to me; they’re my biggest win. I’m happily married to Neil. We’ve been together for over 20 years, and our children are now teenagers. We think that every stage of parenting is the best phase.

Peoples and nations of the world inspire me. Having travelled and ministered in many different countries, I continue to dream of going to new places. As a family, church planting and missions have been part of our life for over a decade. Through Neil, I’ve learned to seek beauty wherever I go.

Two of my values include living authentically and transparently. My heart continues to expand to see individuals, marriages, families, and communities transformed by love.
