"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...

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: 

#1:  It's what's inside...

 2-minute read

 We may have held a life's dream closely, believing it will never happen to us, the idea is stupid, we're too old now to pursue it, ______ (fill in the blank). We as midlife women can so easily self-censor, for a variety of reason.
