Relationships

Slaying the dragon of self-hatred

One of the most frequent problems I deal with in counseling and coaching is self-hatred. People often tell me, “I know God loves and forgives me, but I can’t forgive myself. I hate myself.” Self-hatred is every bit as much a sin as other-directed hatred. We are all God’s image bearers and, although we might not like aspects…

Healthy boundaries

I grew up a good Dutch Reformed girl in the lovely town of Pella, Iowa, where people are expected to be well-put-together, responsible, hardworking, God-fearing and independent.  I never got in trouble.  People liked me (at the least most seemed to like me).  And I genuinely loved God and desired to follow His commands.  So,…

Iron sharpening iron

Proverbs 27:17 “Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.” I had my heart set on it.… It was a beautiful truck that had been magnificently restored, and I wanted it. Sure, it would cost money that I didn’t have, storage would be a problem (I was in college at the time), and it would be worthless in the winter. But,

How to make a relationship better all by yourself

I’m happy to say that my daughter was recently married. As a mom, it was one of the best days of my life (another was the day we adopted her from Korea). I prayed that I would enjoy not only the actual wedding day, but also the weeks leading up to it. As a counselor, I’ve heard too many horror stories of family meltdowns…
