Trusting God is a major theme of God and Boobs the book. By trusting God with our lives, we are empowered to resist the impulse to become dependent upon spiritual leaders and religious rules. Instead, we turn to God as our ultimate source of comfort, hope and grace. Trusting God isn’t always easy. Life gets in the way, complicating how we view our happiness and success. In order to trust God, we must start by adjusting our beliefs. There are three beliefs that will help us with trusting God, and today we’re exploring the first: “God is always with me, no matter my circumstances, no matter what.” The more choose to believe that God is with us, despite our obstacles, the better we get at trusting God in the hard times.
Trusting God is our next blog series. Wouldn’t it be great to have life figured out life – to follow a precise five-year plan for the future, with zero room for error! Life is rarely as linear as we want it to be. Life comes with unexpected twists. Trusting God at each turn helps to strengthen our faith and improve our lives, which I write about extensively in God and Boobs the book. Trusting God includes being willing to take risks, make mistakes, and then keep trusting God. Now is the time to get ready for the changes ahead. To get ready for change in your health, finances, relationships or emotions… you need to prepare your heart to trust in God. Trusting God is the only way to prepare for the unknown.
Now is the time to get ready for change! We are just weeks away from the New Year. You will have a fresh set of goals, a renewed hope and a revived energy for your New Year vision.

Here’s 3 reasons to get ready for change now:
Women are trending. In addition to God and Boobs, there were a ton of books released this year, from Lean In to Let Her Lead, which encourage progress for women’s rights. It’s finally cool to be a female CEO, female comedian, or even a female minister. We should be these things – not because it’s trendy, but because we should be whoever we want to be. Both men and women now embrace religious feminism as their mantra. Religious feminism is considered progressive and dare I say… cool. I’m a female spiritual director and Christian counselor. God and Boobs the book is all about women living to their greatest potential. But, I think there’s a way that is superior to religious feminism.
Last week, my husband took me to Dancing with the Stars to see a friend perform. I love this show! It was a great night to attend the show. They had a group dance to the Fox song — which is played-out, and yet still so fun! We sat behind the cast of The Talk and the ladies were all so friendly. I wanted to share some of our Dancing with the Stars photos with you guys.
Great news for ladies in the DFW Metroplex! I have an open event this Saturday morning, November 9 @ 10am. It’s at Trinity Church Dallas: 4300 Cole Avenue, Dallas 75205. And… it’s FREE!

However, Trinity Church Dallas has been gracious enough to open the event to all women. Be sure to take advantage of this great opportunity to join me in an open setting, at no cost to you. I will be available to sign copies of God and Boobs the book and answer questions after the event.
For many, Halloween is about experiencing and creating fear. From spooky costumes to scary movies to haunted mansions, ’tis the season to explore the seemingly limitless boundaries of fear. Halloween fear is a temporary fear that can be fun at times. But invasive fear, the kind of fear that creeps in to penetrate the soul is not fun. In fact, it is the number one factor that keeps people from living to to their greatest potential. Fear limits a person’s ability to feel happy, peaceful and confident. I’m asked regularly how to conquer fear. I personally learned how to conquer fear, and while there are many paths to freedom from fear, I want to share with you the easiest and most powerful thing you can do when you feel afraid. From now on, you’ll know how to conquer fear too!
Halloween is almost here and I love dressing up! My favorite trend are the adorable themed-aprons which make great Halloween costumes for women. The aprons are a no-fuss solution to Halloween costumes for women because you can pair them with clothes you already own, and then easily swap them out with friends later. Here are my favorite picks, selected for women who want match their children, their partner and their wardrobe. Also, be sure to check last year’s picks of Halloween costumes for women who are feminists!
October is National Bully Prevention Month. Now is the perfect time to highlight my crusade against religious bullies. The term ‘religious bullies’ may refer to two different groups of people. The first are religious leaders who use god-talk to bully others into submission. The second are non-religious people who bully religious believers. I believe this later group poses a growing concern to Christians in the US as there is little tolerance for those whose belief system is contrary to mainstream secularism. However, the purpose of this blog and God and Boobs the book is to highlight the former group – religious leaders who abuse their power. Please sign the pledge and help draw awareness to this prevalent violation.
If your emotions have been driving you crazy, complicating your relationships and hindering your work performance, then this is the post for you! My goal is to help women live to their greatest capacity by maximizing their relationship with God. That’s the focus of my book, God and Boobs, which also helps women improve emotional health. In my work as a counselor and pastor, as well as in my personal life, I’ve learned that sometimes counseling and spiritual practices aren’t enough to improve emotional health. We may need to a more holistic approach to improve emotional health in the long term. Here are 5 ways to improve emotional health without seeing a shrink, OR, better yet… in addition to seeing a shrink.
