Should Christians Do Yoga?

This post is sort of piggy-backing off of my post on meditation. If you have not read that one (or watched the videos), I highly recommend that you do so: The Dark Side of Meditation – What no one wants to talk about… I would also like to quickly add, before I get started, that watching…

The Dark Side of Meditation (What no one wants to talk about…)

I am finding that speaking negatively about meditation or yoga brings about a surprising amount of attack and vitriol…even from Christians. The fervor with which these practices are defended have led me to believe that the effects of meditation and yoga reach far beyond just “relaxation” and “exercise.” Could it be possible that there might…

The Gospel of Experience or The Gospel of Jesus Christ?

My heart is utterly grieved. I don’t even really know what to say. I have had to repent of SO MUCH, over the last couple of months. This isn’t the first time I have had the very foundation of what I believe in, shaken. When I turned from my New Age beliefs and returned to…

New Age or Christianity? Defining Our Terms

When trying to determine if something is Christianity or New Age, we need to understand what certain words and phrases mean. I’ve noticed that Satan likes to play with language to cause confusion and frustration (we see it in the news, everyday). As Christians, we are taught to disregard Satan’s lies and focus on the…

On the Rise – New Age Beliefs in the Church

I’m sharing something today, that I hope will begin some conversation about where we are as the Church – as the Body of Christ. While this post addresses issues found in the western church – North America, in particular – these beliefs and practices have a global reach.  This is a video by Steven Bancarz…

Recent Changes and Future Plans

I’ve been away from both my blog, and social media, for a few months. It has been a season of change for me and my family, so a break was a necessary thing. I’m writing this as a quick update on what has been going on and to share a little about my plans for…

Poking the “Spiritual” Bear

I have started and stopped this post, what seems like a hundred times. There is so much I want to say, but I want to keep it clear and concise. I want to share what has been so heavy on my heart, but don’t want to go into too much detail, because that would actually…

HOPE Restored

Hope is a dangerous thing to lose. We can face the hardest of circumstances – persevere through seemingly unending trials – as long as we maintain our hope. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles;…

Settle It

When it comes to our identity, and trusting in who we are in Christ, there are a lot of opportunities to get distracted. Opposing messages come from the enemy; the world; even our own mind. This is why it is ESSENTIAL to be in the Word – everyday. We need to know what God’s Word…

What’s My Motivation?

Hi Everyone! I’m back. I didn’t post for a couple of days because I was overwhelmed and tired. I was preparing for family coming into town on top of our regular October boost in activity. As much as I had hoped to post everyday in October, I realized the pressure and stress to get a…
