Reconciling Divorce and Marriage Vows

“When you are in alignment with the desires of your heart, things have a way of working out.” Iyanla Vanzant

 

All of our marriage vows sounded something like this:

“I, ____, take you, ____, to be my lawfully wedded (husband/wife), to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.”

The Truth about Showing Up

“Today I make a stand for truth, as I extend my perceptions beyond what my senses reveal to me, to what I know to be true in my heart.”  Marianne Williamson, A Year of Miracles.

My entire life coaching practice is built on the concept of truth. Most people’s initial reaction is that truth is all about being honest and not lying – at least not intentionally. While that’s true (pardon the pun), it’s so much bigger and more beautiful than that. It’s about getting in touch with your own personal truth – that which God placed on your ...continue reading...
