Tis’ the season…Or maybe not?

You know how the old song goes, “Tis’ the season to be jolly, fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la.”  The Christmas season is officially in full swing. The decorations are up, the parties are beginning, churches are planning their Christmas plays, and yet you feel like you want to hide under the covers until it all goes away. Well, here is the good news. You are not a weirdo, you are simply SAD!  SAD in this sense is the acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder and there are more than 3 million cases in the U.S. per year. The technical definition for SAD is, “a mood disorder characterized by depression that occurs at the same time each year.” People may experience: Mood: anxiety, apathy, general discontent, loneliness, loss of interest, mood swings, or sadness Sleep: excess sleepiness, insomnia, or sleep deprivation Whole body: appetite changes or fatigue Behavioral: irritability or social isolation Also common: depression, lack of concentration, or weight gain. I am no therapist, however I decided to share this information because this occurs in a lot of people. And if you have recently experienced loss in your family you definitely have to be on guard against Seasonal Affective Disorder around the holidays. Having lost my father in September I noticed when the holidays came around it felt like a dark cloud came with it. My entire family struggled with these feelings and decided to be intentional about overcoming them. I wanted to share a few tips that we personally are doing to overcome and combat these SAD feelings around the holidays. If you have lost a loved one, remember them with a special...

Our Secret Enemy: The Root of All Sin

  I found the greatest love of all Inside of me The greatest love of all Is easy to achieve Learning to love yourself It is the greatest love of all- Whitney Houston In a culture where self-worth, self-esteem, selfies, and being self-made are highly regarded it’s easy to unknowingly welcome our secret enemy: Pride. We love ourselves SO much that we often believe the world revolves around us. I never thought I was a prideful person, or even thought about how dangerous pride can be. In our world we are taught to have pride in ourselves, and our abilities. We are taught self -esteem in books, conferences, and school. Heck, I’ve shared on the importance of having self-esteem because it was taught to me over the years. This sense of self-worth and being self-made leaves out an important person, “God/Jesus/Holy-Spirit.” (I’ll use these names interchangeable throughout this blog.) Our worth comes from Christ, and the more we are aware of that, the better we can recognize pride when it rears its ugly head. When I truly think about the sin of pride, I can see how the enemy with his craftiness has secretly inserted this into our identities from the beginning of time. Defining Pride Let’s begin with defining pride. I love this definition found in another blog: Pride’s been defined as a feeling of deep pleasure or satisfaction in an achievement, an accomplishment, or in someone else or something else but it’s also been described as conceit, egotism, vanity, vainglory, all over one’s own appearance or status in life and not just something that’s been accomplished. It...
