But at other times, writer's block is just another name for creative fatigue. In that case, take a rest, go on a vacation, restore your soul. Then come back to it.(less)

Once the tools and the skills are developing, then you can put them to use to create something that others will love. Focus on creating something for just one or two people. If you can connect with one person, you'll increase the likelihood that you'll connect with lots of people. (But trying to connect with lots of people rarely works.)(less)

When our kids misbehave, most of us have a strong tendency to lash out. Unless we have truly done the long, hard work of dying to self (which is an ongoing process), then most of the time, even if we dress it up in fancy language and justifications, in the heat of the moment, we just want revenge. We want to feel powerful. We want to tip the scales back in our favour.  We want to punish and tea...

James MacDonald
“To disrespect a person made in the image and likeness of God is a lot worse than desecrating a flag. We should be offended and repulsed in the same way when God's image bearers are desecrated – abused, beaten, neglected, discriminated against, and not loved and taken care of as they should be.”
