The latest topic in the media for the past two weeks has been God speaking to people. Before it is laid to rest, I wanted to quickly weigh in on it.
Here’s the quick recap, in case you’ve been out of the country and missed it. On February 15, 2018, Joy Behar from the popular television show, The View, said of Vice President Mike Pence, if he believes that God speaks to him, it’s called Mental Illness (paraphrased).
Mocking a Christian’s faith has almost become commonplace in recent times. It seems that many other faiths can live out their beliefs without judgment or unkind words, except those of the Christian faith. Regardless of why this happens, here’s how God “speaks”. Really He does!
In the New Testament of the bible we are taught about having a relationship with God, one that consists of a dialog, not a monologue. In more than one place it is written, that we need to quiet ourselves and listen for the voice of God, for He will speak to us. In the Old Testament in 1Kings 18 and 19 it’s described as a still small voice as opposed to thunder and lightening. For a Christian, this is the norm. Maybe Mike Pence was the only one brave enough to say it so openly and matter of fact.
I remember years ago, a friend of mine, a Christian, had to take a psychological exam to be hired for the FDNY. One of the questions posed was if he believed God spoke to him. My friend, knowing what they were looking for, (him hearing an audible voice) said no and he hated having to answer that way. Most of us are well aware, that many mental illnesses present themselves with a person hearing an audible voice from “God”, telling them to do something. This is a sad reality for mentally ill people, but it doesn’t come close to what most Christians mean when they say they hear from God. If more of us spoke about it more freely among, it wouldn’t seem so crazy, or carry such a negative stigma. So just in case you hear it said that God spoke, and they are clearly not suffering from mental illness, this is what is meant.
How does God speak?
This is by no means an exhaustive list after all He’s God and can use anyway He chooses but I hope these few examples have brought a little more clarity and understanding to this latest hot button topic. Yes God does speak and it becomes just part of the Normal Christian Life.

In different seasons of my life, I’ve heard a certain word come to my mind. This word usually winds up being like a guiding force during that particular time. This season, the word focus came to me. As I contemplated this word, it began to speak to me.
This is a busy time in my life. I have professional goals that I am working toward. I have passion in my heart, ideas in my head and the energy to move forward. It would seem easy to keep focusing on them. Especially since I feel clear on what needs to be done. The test of that focus comes from my being in the category of a Baby Boomer which comes with it’s own challenges.
As a Baby Boomer, your parents may have now reached an age where they need more attention from you. You may have to accompany them to their doctor’s appointments, as well as whatever other help and care they may need. It takes focus to be able to keep your own goals in sight as you add this to your plate. You also have to learn the balance between doing everything for them and letting them still do as much as they are able. And, if that weren’t enough, there is a major emotional adjustment, which arises from seeing the changes your parents are experiencing. It too requires focus to not be thrown by the realization that someday, this could be you.
For those Baby Boomers who now have adult children (possibly with children of their own), it’s important to not let the busyness of life rob you of enjoying time with each other. Focus on the importance of these relationships and carve out time for the people that mean the most to you. Life goes by too quickly to not spend time with the people you love.
Add on some more incidentals like caring for your own physical health and well-being. More than likely, you aren’t able to eat the same way you used to. Now it’s time to focus on eating healthy and making better choices. This takes time and attention to actually be successful. Don’t forget to get some exercise too! (If you’ve been doing this all along, kudos to you, you’re ahead of the game.)
As I write, I’m reminded of the words from a song by John Lennon:
“Life is what happens to you while your busy making other plans.”
If you too are in a season where you have plans and goals in front of you, and a lot of life is happening to you, I will gladly share my word with you. Focus on that which is truly important in your life. Plan well and ask for help when you need it. Self-care is crucial. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you need some extra rest. All the pulling in different directions can be very draining, both mentally and physically. Be flexible. You may find yourself having to juggle and rearrange your schedule often. Also remind yourself to keep your Focus on your particular lane only. You are not in competition with anyone. What is meant for you will come to you, if you stay diligent. Refuse to be thrown off track or discouraged by the Millennial’s and Generation Z’s (younger generation) moving past you at lightning speed. With all your life experience, you have to know by now, that all good things happen in their proper time. It’s slow and steady that wins the race. Don’t lose sight of your goal! Focus!!!
Do you remember all the outdated, traditional roles of husbands and wives? You know the stale ones that have been passed down by relatives, friends and old movies and society? Many of them seem almost laughable today. Especially regarding women. I’m sure a little study (or Alexa or Google), could yield the origins of some of them, and it might prove pretty interesting. A very old analogy about defining roles that comes to mind quickly, uses words like: the kitchen, bare foot and pregnant. Talk about oppressive!
Defining roles within a marriage could be confining, stereotyping and restricting for sure, especially since we are all individuals and uniquely created. Roles can actually be good to create lanes without pigeon holing anyone. With that in mind, (In this first part of a two part blog), I’d like to convey some roles for a husband and wife which can actually bring clarity, understanding and some peace within a marriage and a home. Obviously, there are some roles that are defined purely by our design as a man or a woman. Without putting anyone in a box, let’s look at some of them.
Some common characteristics of being female are that we are nurturing. We like things to be organized and run smoothly within our homes. Most of us consider it our responsibility to make sure everyone is cared for as well. Factor in her job or career, and this makes for many moving parts to oversee. (Regardless of whether she works outside or inside of the home, this typically defaults to most women anyway). When the opposite of what this woman wants happens, and she doesn’t feel like she has a handle on everything, it creates undo stress on her, resulting in lots of marital friction. In my 30 years of working with couples, this held true years ago and still is today.
Being married is being part of a team. Being part of a team means everyone has his or her position to play so to speak. When these positions are clearly defined, everyone knows what’s expected from them and what they are responsible for. It won’t make it the perfect running home, but it will become the goal or plumb line for organization within the home. So it is safe to say that the position or role for women today is that of a manager. This requires a conversation for understanding and clarity on how that plays out in your home. (Since every home is different you can tailor it to fit yours). A good manager doesn’t do all the work, unlike the traditional wifely role. Today’s wife is the one who lays out how she thinks things need to go and she delegates (or hires). Again, she is a good manager, so she has respectful and honoring discussions with her husband and family (team mates) when needed, to negotiate ideas and changes, and to keep things on point. In order for her to be the manager, that role has to be defined as such. Then the husband has to support and back her in it. The unity between the two of you will then be seen and understood in the eyes of everyone in the home.
At a time in our lives, where changes in our culture have left expectations and roles blurred, it can be useful to start building some structures in our homes, relevant for today. Every marriage needs a healthy foundation to build upon. I have found this defining role for a wife, both personally and professionally, helpful for a marriage and a home. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water in our evolution.
In my next blog, we’ll take a look at a role of a husband. It’s so much more than just “being the head of the home”.

If you’ve parented a teenager or are in the throws of it now, you understand the title of my blog. Consider the analogy. Some days are fun and exciting. There are lots of laughs, and your heart is filled with unbelievable love and pride toward them. You want to keep them home, spending as much time with them as possible, before they leave the nest.
In the very same day though, maybe the same hour, you remember you have just entered the Lion’s Den. You see the look on their face. Suddenly they have become distant and closed off. The air now frosty, you begin to question yourself:
You may or may not find out what caused the shift in them, but nevertheless, the onus is on you to be the adult in the relationship (whether you feel like it or not). This is the time to hold onto the reigns and ride out the raging hormone horses so to speak, till they calm down and level out. You then give them space, guidance, love and support.
Some days we just respond to them in kind; they yell, we yell. If they get nasty, we get nasty. All the love and affection we felt earlier has now been challenged; at that moment, we don’t even like them. Again, we question ourselves:
The anger, frustration, guilt and inadequacy you feel can make it extremely hard to handle things in a healthy manner. It’s so important for their sake, for your sake and for the sake of the relationship that you “woman up”- “man up” and parent them with intention.
As they go through their teen years the goal is to train them to make good decisions, as well as to handle mistakes and bad decisions, correctly, while they are still in your care. The letting go process with a teenager, can be a difficult transition for a parent. It is different for everyone, depending on the general stability of your teen (emotional, peer pressure, drugs, etc.). Some may require additional support and help, along with your parenting. Just remember, you are the best mom or dad they could ever have. Everything you have ever done for them was out of love. We all make mistakes, so never be afraid to apologize to your teen if necessary. One day your teenager will grow up and they will thank you for all you did for them. Until then, keep up the good work! This is the hardest yet most important and rewarding job you’ll ever do.

Where do we stand today in regard to our ever changing worldview? Today I saw two different videos on social media that before becoming a Christian could have greatly influenced my views. The first one was on gender. It featured a young person speaking about how being male or female is in your brain, not your genitals. Therefore the term non-binary will now be adopted, for those who don’t identify with either gender. This person’s tone, conviction, and position was so convincing, it could have swayed my own stance on gender. The second video was a priest speaking on the foolishness surrounding saying “Merry Christmas” or Happy Holidays”. He stated how Jesus doesn’t care about which term folk’s use, as long as they were supportive of all religions (never once recognizing the real argument was about the attack on Christianity, not just the words being used).
Both videos made strong compelling arguments for their positions. Each had an undertone of someone being foolish, if they adhered to anything otherwise. As I listened, I felt like I too could be swayed, if I wasn’t grounded in the truth of the word. They were extremely convincing! When you add in the possibility of shame, it becomes the perfect combination for “group think” to be permeated in our society.
Our Christianity is being greatly challenged like never before. It’s causing us to question whether we really believe the bible is the infallible Word of God. Do we believe every word or just the parts we like? Do we espouse to a biblical worldview or one driven by society? The bottom line is, as Christians, is Jesus really Lord over our lives (our thinking, our choices, our opinions and our actions), regardless of the times we live in? Although an argument may be persuasive, as believers, we are to look at things through the lens of the Word. The Word is God’s viewpoint. It is never out dated, old fashioned or irrelevant. When you take the time to study it, you’ll find it is always just, honoring, and respectful of all human life.
The Bible is the example that Jesus modeled for us, showing how it’s done under His domain. Its purpose is greater than making one feel good at the moment, or avoiding conflict. In many instances, it’s contrary to the world’s methods. This, my friend, is where the rubber meets the road, in your Christianity. Are you grounded in what you believe about gender and other hot button topics in our society? Do you believe gender is from God alone? Are you aware of how humanity’s limited thinking is trying to change the natural God ordained order, for one of self-determination? Are you reading your bible to understand what is really going on in our confused and chaotic world? Are you seeing the bigger picture of what’s happening? If not, you may be positioning yourself to be moved by every new dogma, idea and theory that comes along.
Remember, there is a power that exists, to steal, to kill and to destroy. One that seeks to redefine what God has defined. This view includes, a well thought out argument, mixed with subtle cues of shaming and or bullying, designed to pressure us toward compliance. Our God, who is the creator of all things, lays out truths for us, for an abundant, prosperous, peaceful life, and He gives us the freedom to choose what we’ll believe, and how we’ll live. It’s an unchanging anchor to keep us steady in the today’s world. Despite the old corner preachers with their hell, fire and brimstone messages, the Word is filled with God’s loving-kindness, toward a people He loves so dearly. Through this Word, He equips us to govern our own lives and expects us to bring that influence into our society as well.
If you consider yourself a Christian, be well informed. Be knowledgeable about God’s opinion (found throughout the bible) and don’t be led by what feels right at the moment. You cannot securely take a stand on shifting sand. Make your choices based on a firm, unchanging foundation. It speaks volumes when one is willing to stand by his convictions no matter who or what comes against them; they are not moved by passing opinions. They are solid in their belief, their character, and their word. If you’re not a Christian, I challenge you to explore the meaning of the whole bible; it’s intent as well as its heartbeat, before you judge or reject it. For believers, I challenge you too, to be well informed before you go along with anything that seems good but ultimately will destroy, and or replace, the structures and values that our loving and wise Creator “created” for us.
Marriage does not complete you. You complete you. Marriage is an opportunity to compliment each other’s completeness.”
How I love that statement! I heard it a few years back and love how simple and profound it was. As individuals, it is our responsibility to keep growing, watering and pruning our lives. It’s good for each of us to pull aside every now and then to do a ‘wellness check up’ within our hearts; not being overly introspective, but enough to be aware of our own feelings, our needs and our desires. Take the time to retreat, to get quiet, to listen, and to reflect on how you’re doing in the midst of your busy life. This regular practice can help us avoid having something sneak up on us suddenly, and cause needless problems.
All of us experience restlessness at different times in our married lives. Studies indicate certain points in our lives when we are more vulnerable to feelings of dissatisfaction than others. A few are; the first year of marriage, the seventh year, when we have children, when they leave the nest, and certainly the time when we hit mid life. It is in these times of transition that can make us feel off balance and cause us to question ourselves, our marriage, and so on. Sometimes, depending on how intense the feelings are, people can have knee jerk reactions and make drastic decisions and changes based only on their current feelings. We all know the best decisions always come when you listen to your feelings, take a step back from them, and then get your critical thinking involved.
We all know marriage takes work and attention from both husband and wife to thrive for the long haul. It needs both parties putting in 100% each, not the 50/50 commitment that is so popular today. We need to do whatever it takes to keep it strong. The focus of this blog is on only one person, “you”.
How many times have you felt restless or bored? Have you checked Facebook, and found that others seem to have it better than you? The smiling faces, the hugging, the excitement, the travel, and all the friends they seem to have. Have you spoken to single friends and compared your life to theirs? All of this green grass on the other side can wreak havoc in a restless heart. In many cases I’ve seen people begin to expect their mate to know how they feel and do something about it. Maybe be more romantic, adventurous, or be sexier for you? Real life comes up lacking in light of what seems to be “out there”, and somehow it becomes our mate’s job to make us feel better. If they can’t, maybe another person can? No!!! No one else can. It’s not your mates’ job to make you happy, or to make you feel fulfilled. (Again, this is a separate from an obvious situation where it absolutely needs both of you to work on an issue).
This is why I suggest stepping aside every so often to sit with your thoughts, so that you can get in touch with your feelings. If you can quiet the chatter in your mind for a bit, you will hear them. They’re there whether you listen to them or not, and they will find expression. Why not pay attention to what’s happening just below the surface? I recommend prayer, meditation, and journaling as a way of turning inward to check on your heart. Ask yourself some questions like, “what am I not paying attention to that has been rustling around in the back of my mind? Where do I feel unfulfilled? What exactly am I feeling? What would help me feel better? “Don’t stress yourself during this time, just let it all come up. Remember, no decisions have to be made right now! You are just listening and observing for whatever comes up. Sometimes just hearing your own heart can make you feel better. Your feelings have been acknowledged and honored and that might have been all that was needed. Other times it may take much more reflection to understand what’s going on and what you need or want. This is the true essence of self-care; tending to our soul and our emotions.
I once read about a woman who was unhappy in her life. She was irritable and snapping at everyone in her home. She came to a point where she just wanted to buy a motorcycle and take off on the open road by herself. (Boy, have I felt like that at times too). But instead, she took off for the day and sat with her thoughts for a while at a quiet park. She realized she had the power to make one or two changes in how she perceived her situation, and she almost immediately felt much better. Prior to that, it was everyone else’s fault that she was so upset. It’s not always so simple, but then again it actually can be.
We also need to remember that each of us is made of three parts; body, soul and spirit. If we’re not caring for all three parts, we will feel the lack within ourselves. Are we getting some exercise? The exercise does not need to consist of extreme cross fit training, or kick boxing. Good, old-fashioned exercise is just as good, if that’s more your style. The same goes for what you eat. Simply incorporating some foods in and out of your diet, can work wonders! Lastly, the one that seems to lack the most is our spirit; the one part of us where our very essence and inner being flows. The more you invest in your spiritual life the more you will reap its rewards. I have found that looking into the bible, finding out who God says I am and what I need for a healthy productive life. (after all, He created me) This has grounded me greatly. It has also filled me with purpose and passion. After being married for 33 years and having passed through all the stages of life I mentioned, I whole-heartedly can attest to its saving grace.
It is no one else’s responsibility to make us happy but ourselves. Make a habit of doing a wellness check up. When both you and your spouse feel complete in yourselves, you will be free to more fully enjoy the complimenting of each other’s completeness.

Prayer, is it your first go to or a last resort? Is it something you do just to comfort yourself, or do you really believe someone is on the other end, to answer that prayer? Is it a means for your conscience to say something nice and caring, excusing you from action where it’s warranted?
Recently, the few words, I’ll pray for you, seem to irk a few people. You can see it on various social media sites, where some will say; “stop sending prayers, we don’t need prayer”. Even the Governor of NY, Andrew Cuomo recently said; “ We don’t need your prayers. We have Pastors, Priests and Rabbis for that.” What is happening in our society that some folks have become so hostile toward prayer?
Prayer has power. It has the power to bring one comfort, to strengthen, to bring courage, to heal, and to unite hearts, which is one of its purposes. Another purpose is to have communion with your Creator - the One who loves us, and loves this world, and wants to intervene on our behalf. It’s more apparent now than ever before, we need the power of prayer. People are hurting! They are afraid, angry, frustrated, and some have been displaced from their homes. It’s truly a difficult time.
Prayer is a lifeline. It not only sustains us, it gives us hope. Hope for divine intervention. We are not stuck in the situation we are presently in. No matter how long it may take to be over, we can rest on “this too shall pass”
(2nd Corinthians 4:17,18). Keeping our connection to God through prayer can reassure us, just as the seasons pass from one to another, so do the seasons of our lives pass from one to another. A brighter day will come.
Some can choose not to believe in prayer, that’s their right. But be careful to not slam those that do. We, who choose to believe, want to be the salt and the light of the world. We want to bring the goodness of God to a hurting and tense filled world. We are not just sitting home and praying. As we pray and hope for more peaceful times, you can also bet we will be active as well; through personal deeds, and making our voices heard, we will work to change what needs to be changed. So to all those concerned, rest assured and let us pray!
We live in a very fast paced society. There are more things to do, more things to remember (besides usernames and passwords), and more people to interact with on a daily basis than ever before. We have various responsibilities to juggle; careers, jobs, children, homes, etc., but it seems there is now something very different, an immense amount of pressure that has been added that wasn’t there before.
A 9 to 5 business hour is not so regular for many people working today. With all of our technology, we can now get ahead of the game, get more done, and outdo our competitors. We give up a little sleep, we skip meals, we put exercise off and we only spend time with our spouse and children, when we’re done with our “work”. When is that? When are we done? What is the wake up call that pulls us off the hamster wheel?
For some it may be sheer burnout, mental and physical exhaustion, for others it’s illness, or maybe severe body pain or migraines, that can leave you flat on your back for a few days. Then there’s anxiety and depression, which is at its highest rate ever, and for other’s it’s failing marriages due to neglect.
I want to address the latter in this blog and shed some light on caring for your marriage before it becomes a casualty of our times. Most of the time, during seasons of stress and busyness, one of the first things that may be affected is our time with our spouse. We may have to put off date night or relaxing together or having meaningful conversations because “duty” calls. And yes, sometimes we legitimately need to be understanding and supportive during certain seasons, but every season has an ending. We are creatures of habit and though may not recognize it when the season is over we allow it to become the “new norm”. That’s when it becomes an issue.
It’s so important to have a standard or value system in place, regarding our relationship; one that we chose to put in place, to keep us on course, and maintain our connection.
Here are some I recommend to my clients:
If you are caring for each other and your relationship on a regular basis you are wise. You are keeping it healthy and maintaining your connection so it’s never really lost. Then when busy seasons, trials and hardships come (Matthew 7:25) your relationship will be strong enough to with stand them, and you’ll always find your way back to each other. It can actually feel like despite everything, you made your way home to one another again.
Matthew 7:25 … and the rains and wind beat upon that house and it did not fall because it was built upon a rock. (Paraphrased)

Maybe you’ve seen this all over Facebook the past few days, as well as other social media sites, the two words “Me Too” posted a woman’s status. It’s purpose is to show the magnitude of this long standing problem in our society. It started after the media explosion about Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment accusations surfaced. One by one over 40 women came out of hiding, who were allegedly sexually abused by him, as if each said “Me Too”.
Soon after, women from around the country started posting it as their statuses. Being sexually harassed, demeaned, physically or emotionally abused, overpowered, intimidated, or dismissed, and being looked at as the the weaker sex, is totally unacceptable. We are by no means inferior to anyone. Although not all men feel this way, there are still some “dinosaurs”, which haven’t yet gotten the message about what it means to be a female. So let me reiterate who we are as women, in support of all my fellow sisters in the “Me Too” Campaign.
We are pretty and soft, wear high heels, polish our nails, while others wear construction boots and helmets, and have calloused hands. We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and creeds. We all have different stories. We express ourselves differently, some soft spoken and others bold as lions. We stay home with our children and we run corporations and businesses. Despite all our differences and positions in life, we have one thing in common; we are all equal in value. Equal to each other and equal to men. As a part of the human race we are all worthy of respect, honor, dignity, and a voice. Our Creator, created us all equal (Genesis 1: 26 to 28, Romans:2:11 plus many more), we are just different sexes and have different functions. Other than that, there is no pecking order, no totem pole or hierarchy of importance and worth. Mothers, daughters and sisters, we are all “woman of great worth.”
This latest devaluation of women out of Hollywood has seemed to have awakened a sleeping giant. You can hear the call for unity and the shout - it’s enough! No more!!! Too many women have carried its shame for far too long, after being abused for being female. I love how this has empowered so many women, famous or not, to stop hiding; to stop being plagued by unwarranted shame. For some, after many years, they are able to stand up and say; they too, were violated by men. I love that as we all stand up together, it will take away some of the power and the fear about coming forward whenever this happens. These predators count on us feeling too scared to say anything.
If you are still suffering in the shadows, too traumatized to come forward, understand whatever happened to you, is not your fault, and you are not alone. You are brave, strong and valued. The more of us that stand together, the louder our voices will echo. Don’t allow anyone to take your power, no matter who they are. Right now there has been a banner raised and it reads, “Me Too”. If you’ve been violated stand under it, there’s room for you.

This is a hard season for our country and for the world at large. We’ve seen a lot of devastation and evil befall too many people. There probably isn’t one person that hasn’t been touched by it, in one-way or another. In the midst of dealing with one tragedy, another arises. It’s enough to leave one feeling helpless, angry, fearful, discouraged, and hopeless about our future.
Although we don’t have any control over these things, we do have control over how we react to them. It seems the people directly involved in these horrendous events - the true victims, have shown the rest of the world how to react when faced with the unimaginable worst of circumstances one can face; both natural and man inflicted. They rose up and showed love and compassion for one another. They helped their neighbors and perfect strangers get out of harms way. They sheltered, they shared, they rallied, they advocated and they put another’s needs before their own. I believe these are the makings of a hero. We applaud and honor them all!
It has been wonderful to watch so many others rally to the aid of those directly involved. They have fought through red tape to make their voices heard. They have collected money, food and supplies, and even helped pack them. With this last tragedy, they even donated their own blood when asked! What a blessing to see how this has united us. It has brought out the best in us and overshadowed what has tried to divide us.
In the days to come, as the dire immediateness of the all the situations wane, the trauma of the events will begin to settle in for many. More than likely, their own negative human emotions will begin to surface, which they’ll have to deal with as they begin to rebuild their lives. This is another opportunity for us to choose to let our compassion rise up and shine, not just for them, but for ourselves as well. They will need us to encourage them, to support them and to continue to help provide for their basic needs. Let’s keep compassion in the forefront and resist the urge to give way to our frustrations, spewing hatred and blame, and falling back to all that divides us.
When God put us in this world He made us like a family with one bloodline. When one hurts, we all hurt. We may have different cultures, skin colors, beliefs and locations, but we are all still connected – like a family. Anger and hatred will only further divide us, but compassion toward one another will connect us more than anything else. If the victims of these disasters and evil events, could forget about themselves in the worst moments of their lives, and show compassion, and the world around them be moved to do the same, then certainly it can be done. May we strive with that same compassion, to stay unified and connected, as we work toward healing and addressing the ills of our world without inflicting further hurt. Does this sound like a nice theory but not realistic? Think again! It only takes one match to light one candle and another and another and another and another - until it burns brighter through the darkness of life.
“It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.” W.L.Watkinson
