Ten Keys For Holiday TraditionsPremium Content

TRADITION

This is a season of traditions. Organizations, communities, families—all sorts of groups create traditional responses to the holiday.

Traditions serve varied purposes. They invoke warm (and sometimes painful) memories, bring people together, and give special meaning to particular days and events.

Self-defeating CyclesPremium Content

Is it possible that abundance is a self-created cycle?

The steps in this picture take the marchers perpetually uphill or downhill. Same steps—it’s all about which direction they choose to walk. I have a feeling the same sort of dynamic works for abundance and scarcity.

Love: Who is #1?Premium Content

Ask Angie: If I as a person am #1 who can I help? Love is not self-seeking. If I seek to help myself first who matters after me? If I choose to help others first am I not full filled? Love is the greatest commandment. So why can't we love?

Confronting Fear in Eating Disorder RecoveryPremium Content

Fear and eating disorders go hand in hand. Fear often surfaces in food related behaviors such as feeling afraid to eat or being afraid of not getting enough exercise, but is actually rooted in deeper fears. These fears may include fear of expressing emotions, of getting hurt, an unknown future or even fear of what others think.

Stop Rescuing the Alcoholic and Start Rescuing YouPremium Content

Ask Angie: Dear Angie, I have been married to an alcoholic husband for eight years now and we have two young children together. We have taken marriage courses and I have been reading the Love Dare. I have tried the detach method but it is difficult since he starts drinking every day at around 9 or 10 in the morning (since he was laid off over six months ago) and drinks until he goes to bed which is usually midnight. If I don't talk to him when he's drinking he gets angry. How can I make the detachment work in this situation and how can I protect our children from his anger?

I Have Forgiven My Husband's Adultery but He is DistantPremium Content

Ask Angie: I forgave husband of infidelity and adultery now he won't talk to me nor sleep close to me what am I doing wrong?

Marriage Guidance: How can forgiveness be wrong? Forgiving others their trespasses against us is always the right thing to do, even if they continue trespassing against us. "Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us". All you can do is your part in the marriage and it looks like you are attempting to do that by forgiving your husband. You didn't tell me if he has repented of adultery or not so I can only speculate that he has not.

Let's talk about ways in which we can heal ourselves and restore marriage after adultery.

An Invitation to Christian Eating Disorder RecoveryPremium Content

Does your eating disorder seem to serve a purpose in your life? Perhaps it seems that it gives you comfort or that it even serves as a distraction from painful underlying issues. Can you imagine your life without the eating disorder? Is there something unexplainable about the eating disorder that keeps you bound to it?

I can relate. It seemed impossible that I would ever be ready to let go of the eating disorder. I was even afraid of what would take its place since I felt there would be a void in my life without it. Eventually, though, I was ready to let go of the eating disorder and allow God to show me a better life without it.
