Perfect Love, Imperfect Expression

What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “If you only love those who love you, what reward have you?” I’ve thought about this idea and I’m reasonably convinced the reward he was referring to had nothing to do with rewards from outside oneself, such as might come from an enemy who you found a way to love, or from God that favored you for your generosity in loving the estranged. Jesus was a teacher of the enlightened perspective, whose radical view of an unconditionally loving God flew in the face of the Old Testimony. His teachings and practices… Read more.

Quick, Before it Melts!

If you want to learn the greatest lessons in life, pay attention to Mother Earth. Nature has a way of showing us the things we need to learn, including the inevitability of change. Springtime in the Rocky Mountains is the perfect example. Just yesterday we had the biggest blizzard of the year- more than two feet of pristine white powder blanketed our world. The day was dark, cloudy and overcast as we were buried with snow. Today, spring is back, the sun is blazing, the temperatures are soaring into the 50’s AND we still have tons of snow covering the… Read more.

The Fine Line of Truth

There is a biblical passage that says…”Straight is the gate and narrow is the way that leads unto life and few there be who find it.” It causes a person (or it should) to seriously think about its deep and rich meaning, and the wonderful effect that it can have for you. Truth is truth regardless of facts and it’s important to know, that the facts are always changing. We have been taught to live our lives based on facts without realizing that facts are only facts until we become aware of another fact that supersedes the previous. Because we are… Read more.

Take Time to Follow Your Dreams

What do you dream of doing? Thinking about your dreams and discussing them with others are key components to eventually making them a reality. A lot of people aren’t really sure of their passion or their dream. It can take years to puzzle together your passion and how you plan to follow it. It took me 30 years to develop and follow my passion! Hopefully my story will help you be patient and never give up on your dream. A seed for my passion was planted when I was a teenager and took care of children whose parents were attending… Read more.

Let’s Pretend

This morning I talked with one of my good friends, Lori. She was telling me about a great new plan that she had for her business. The excitement was palpable and grew exponentially as she shared her enthusiasm. Then suddenly she stopped, and said, “Well, that’s what I’ll do WHEN I get a sponsor.” Enthusiasm gone. Excitement killed by logic. We all have dreams. We all have the same voice inside telling us why we can’t do our own specific dream. What’s the biggest impediment stopping you from your dream? If I had the money… if I were younger…  if… Read more.

86,400 Seconds

I’m writing this to you from the farm in Minnesota where my husband spent his childhood. We’re here to celebrate the life of his mother, who passed away a few days ago. My parents are both still alive and thriving, but the loss of my mother-in-law has hit me hard. Everyday someone’s parent or loved one dies. We experience it all around us and almost become immune to feeling sorrow because it’s such a normal part of life. Until it’s your parent or loved one who passes on. Then the world as we know it stops turning. Bits of the… Read more.

The Reward is in the Effort

GUEST POST FROM SOPAN GREENE Gail has asked me to post to her blog, as she’s with family in Minnesota. Her mother-in-law passed away a few days ago. Gail will be returning to the office next week. In the meantime, I wanted to share this with you in the hopes that it will move you into action on your dream. In working on the Global Hug Tour over the past few months I’ve seen amazing things happen in very short periods of time.  Most of this is from Gail Lynne Goodwin being a ‘generator.’ She is always generating and producing… Read more.

All Love Is Great Love

We often overlook the life’s most important messages in lieu of the enormous. It’s as if there’s a universal rule that bigger is better—and not only in context of Blue Plate specials or paychecks. So often, I’ve paid the most attention to preachers with big congregations or clothing stores featuring the most famous designers. But wisdom doesn’t come in only one size, or even in Large or Extra Large. One of my greatest teachers wouldn’t have fit in an Extra Small, in fact. Speedy the mealworm wasn’t very big. He wasn’t especially brilliant. He wasn’t even very appetizing—unless, of course,… Read more.
