Do you ever feel like you have to be skinny? I used to feel that way. Weight was that one thing in life I could never control. And because I felt like I had to be skinny, I made “losing weight” more important than God wanted me to make it. I always thought, “If I could […]
When I was in high school, I was on a dance team. Before each performance we had to weigh in. If we made weight, we performed. If we didn’t, we had to sit out. Because of this policy, those of us who were border-line in the weight department got started on some bad habits. We’d diet like […]
The more I work on breaking bad habits, the more I realize how deceitful my mind is. I rarely come right out and say, I’m going to break my boundaries. Instead, I try to make it seem like I’m not really breaking my boundaries. I do that by telling myself little lies. See if any of these […]
It’s 11:30 in the morning, and I’ve already broken my boundaries. Not because I was dying to eat anything. But because I wasn’t trying that hard not to eat anything. Granted, I’m on vacation right now. But if I think of past experience, vacation is probably one of those times when I most need to […]

In some ways it’s scary to pursue transformation. Because sooner or later, we know we’re going to fail. And when that happens, as it inevitably will, the thought creeps into our minds like a slow-acting poison: why do I bother? I’ll never get over this. But that’s a lie. Satan is the father of lies (John […]
Sorry about the constant shifting of blogs, everyone. If I can’t figure out how to make Bible study type posts over here, I’ll switch back to blogger – but I may not have time to work on that for awhile. This will be the last post for the next week or so as my college […]
It looks like I’ll have to keep posting any Bible studies or worksheets over at my other blog until I can figure out how to transfer Word documents directly to WordPress (if it can be figured out!). For today’s post, click here.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if writing a blog on how to break free from bad habits and sins drove me to drink? In order to avoid that possibility, I’ve decided to post today’s Bible study over at my other blog P.S. If any of you know how to post a chart to WordPress (or leave more […]
