"Unless you assume a God, the question of life’s purpose is meaningless."

Bertrand Russell, British philosopher, atheist

 As you take this time in midlife to reassess your life and move toward fulfilling your life's purpose, your life's dream that may have been on your heart for decades, a lot could happen along the way. Your doing deep introspection and then plunging ahead with something new, extraordinary is a scary, challenging, but oh-so-rewarding journey.  As you strive toward your next, best life, by its very nature this process may knock you off kilter a bit, take you down rabbit holes, show-up with a companion called failure. So why not minimize these stresses? By sincerely putting yourself in God's hands? He will help. When you do, here are 5 things you can expect: 

  1. You have a stability that nothing can shake – political, cultural, or societal upheaval. Political parties come and go. Cultural fads wax and wane. What we once held as...

Conquering the Fear Factor During COVID-19

fear life Mar 28, 2020

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is infecting more than our bodies with disease; it is infecting our psyches with fear. And this fear as spread much faster and its reach far greater than the biological virus itself, infecting young and old, trade and transportation, all of daily life.

Fear can benefit us, like fear of a snarling dog or a very real virus. But fear can also paralyze us, as in the words of a character from the movie, Dune, “Fear is the great mind-killer.” It is this fear that kills our minds, preventing us from making rational decisions. It is this fear that robs us of our peace, preventing us from calmly dealing with daunting challenges.

You may be infected with fear right now. Do you fear losing your job? Do your fear retirement? Or a disintegrating relationship? Fear for your ailing parents? A failing marriage?  Of being alone? Do you fear what’s happening to our country? Are you fearful for your children and grandchildren?

If any of these...

Words of Assurance, Comfort, and Peace

Especially in trying times like these, with the world thrown into turmoil, upending our daily lives, we seek assurance. We seek comfort. And we seek peace. Not from the natural, as the once-reliable no longer is. But from the Supernatural, the Eternal, the True. And such a source of assurance, comfort, and peace is found in God’s holy, eternal, and true Word, the Bible.

So now I will share these truths from God’s Word with you, with the confidence that they will provide you assurance, comfort, and peace.

(All Bible passages are from the New International Version, unless otherwise noted.)

 Assurance

 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”  (Psalm 46:1-3)

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today...

Going Crazy Through the Crisis . . . But for Grace in Midlife

fear god midlife Mar 28, 2020

Have you ever faced a time when life-changing events were swirling around you, moment by moment, all unpredictably? So much so, you thought surely you would go crazy, literally?

I’ll bet you have – especially as you’ve reached midlife.

And I certainly have.  When my husband of 27 years struggled through the last two months of his life, dying of colon cancer.

God had brought Steve and I through our two years of battling this monster inside him, a long life considering when initially diagnosed, the surgeon began by saying:  “Do nothing and be dead in a few days.”

From that moment until those last two months, we had our ups and downs, joys and sorrows, and God was with us, teaching us, sustaining, uplifting us.

The last two months were something else entirely. The ups and downs—but mostly downs—were happening moment by moment, and I was going crazy.

You see, when faced with a crisis, I was wired by God to automatically think about...

The 7 bits of wisdom about midlife that I learned from a ballerina

5-minute read 

A friend, who herself adores ballet, passed along an article about renowned ballerina Alessandra Ferri. At age 19, she was the youngest woman to become a principal ballerina with Royal Ballet School. She has worked alongside some of the greats:  dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov, choreographer Kenneth MacMillan, Now, at age 54, she has come out of retirement to light up the stage once again. 

This is no small feat. Not only does the world of ballet adore the young, but there are very practical physical limitations that come upon even the most tone ballerina as she ages. Added to that is that ballet has become an even more physical endeavor than it was in the 1960s, and you have many odds stacked against you. 

But those odds didn't faze Ferri. Her extraordinary talent combined with mental discipline and a positive approach have brought her again into the limelight. 

Here are 7 bits of wisdom I learned from Ferri:
