What Is Your Intention?

Success Mini-Course Lesson Six “Clear Intention” A special, six-week series of "Making Sense of Life" by Terry Drew Karanen Thank you for sharing this six week journey with me! I hope you'll find this final lesson on how to create and maintain a clear intention for your life to...

Weeding Your Garden

Are you clear about what you want in life? We might think we are, but the proof is whether or not our lives are reflecting that belief. How often have you heard someone say, “If only I’d win the Lottery my financial problems would be over?” Can we win...

Clarify from Confusion

  Emma Curtis Hopkins once wrote that “order is heaven’s first law.” If the spiritual realm is perfection, and that perfection is reflected in our human experience, then why do our lives look more like a supernova at times instead of harmonious cooperation? The quick and easy answer is...

Honesty

  It’s been said that the very young and the very old are brutally honest. Young children haven’t yet come to understand the concept of politeness in society. The very elderly, quite frankly, just don’t care sometimes. They believe they’ve earned the right to speak their minds without necessarily...

Using Our Voice

I am often asked by my husband, “You know that was your out loud voice, right?” I have tried to learn over the years to put my brain into gear before putting my mouth into motion, but every so often I just get the order confused.   Using our...

“No” Is a Complete Sentence

I have very few friends or acquaintances that are not over-scheduled or stressed-out because of the demands they have put on themselves. Like attracts like, so I too fall into that category more often than I would care to admit.   Please note that I did not blame this...

Does It Really Make a Difference?

I do my best to be engaged and concerned when someone is relating a story to me. Really I do! But there are times, and I know you’ve been there, when I just look at the person and say, “And, you’re telling me this because…?” Sometimes we just need...
