-Folks who thrive in God’s grace give grace easily, but the self-critical person becomes others-critical.
-We need to quit trying to be awesome and instead be wise.
-There’s a difference between humility and insecurity, and self-effacement does no one any favors.
-How many trot out that tired cliché—“I’m waiting for God to open a door”—and He’s all, “I love you, but get going, Pumpkin,” because usually chasing the dream in your heart looks surprisingly like work.
-A good parent prepares the child for the path, not the path for the child.
-I worry we consider “success” to be a product of the parent’s diligence more than the child’s.
-Lean honestly into every hard place, each tender spot, because truthfulness hurts for a minute, but silence is the kill shot.
-Married tongues should be shredded with the amount of ugly words bitten back.
-Loneliness can be a prison, but we have keys. You needn’t wait for someone to open the bars.
-You can’t pour antidote into poison forever and expect it to transform into something safe, something healthy.
