“Pray. Period! Don’t expect anything. Or better, expect nothing. Prayer cleanses us of expectations and allows holy will, providence, and life itself an entry. What could be more worth the effort — or the non-effort?” – Thomas Moore I find this quote by far the most powerful saving Grace of the infallible devotion of all traditional prayers. Have you given thought about what your saving prayers are? I am reminded of this even more these days. My wise 90-year-old aunt…..

What does our First Lady, Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, and my mother, Amelia DeNofa, have in common that make a family thrive? In an interview with NBC News that aired Tuesday evening, Clinton explained one of the many reasons why she may forgo a 2016 run. “I am about to become a grandmother in the fall, which I know is gonna change my life,” she said. “I don’t know how I’m gonna feel about that. I wanna feel the feelings around becoming…..

“She took some of its fruit and ate it; and she also gave some to her husband,  who was with her, and he ate it.” -Genesis 3:6   The Power of Love My parents had been very strict, raising us with morals and values through the word of God, rather than in the ways of the world. Those values stayed with me and I still practice them as much as possible with my own children. I feel blessed that I’ve…..

” We have to imagine being in their heart and walking in their shoes to hear what they are saying.”

With 23 years between my two children, I entered a different world in 1995 when my second child was born, of the demands and responsibilities put upon children from their own parents. Back in 1971, the over-achiever parenting style was unknown by me.  However, as a new old-schooled mom, I was unfamiliar and terribly confused with the aggressive parenting style that I continued to offer my second child similar choices as my first, which initially came from my mother’s devout…..

Seeing Through God’s Eyes

Seeing Through God’s Eyes    No matter how faithful we may be, we cannot always see the full picture or understand why things are happening as they are. We may feel frustrated that our dreams and visions  have been postponed by the immediate needs around us, but once we are able to  expand our spiritual awareness, we become better able to see what has been there all along: God’s vision for us and those around us.   As we stretch…..

Imagine a mother with seventeen children, being aware of one missing child alone in her bedroom for too many hours. She then goes on to make all the necessary arrangements to let this child know that there’s a world outside waiting for her, and needs her. This is just one of the things my mother did for my youngest sister, Shirley, who was fourteen-years-old at the time.  I was married, and with a four-year-old daughter when I received a phone…..

Our Best Role Models I read that the first “Mystery Plays” performed in the early Church, along with the scenes depicted in stained-glass windows, were created for people who could not read or write. The earliest of these plays took place in churches rather than in theaters, with the priests and monks acting out Bible stories. They were performed to allow people to reflect on and be lifted up to a truer understanding of God and how to live. This is similar…..

Fairly New Theory Has a Name Shortly after becoming a member on Red Room, I began posting my personal experiences of finding a genre that was related to my book Imprinted Wisdom that I was working on at that time. I realized now that I kept questioning myself, since I honestly didn’t fit into any one genre, religion, or organization until I found the Society of Emotional Intelligence. It dawned on me that emotional intelligence is the genre of all our stories. I have…..
