  1. Me too. I am so sorry you have had to endure so much, but Yeshua is the great healer, and took those stripes for us to prove it. Do you know one of Kenneth Copeland's (tv pastor) favorite sayings; don't call the cat if you want the dog? It means to keep declaring yourself healed even when you don't feel like you are. It is like speaking to the mountain. Your mountain for 7 years has been ill health. Picture it in your mind getting smaller and smaller. Continually speak to its removal. You might even put a picture on your fridge or mirror of a hand drawn mountain named sickness with big, red letters across it that says, "Healed in Yeshua's (or Jesus') Name." That way every time you look at it, it will help you grow in your faith knowing he has this. A friend of mine had breast cancer. She did her treatments and took her meds, but she always prayed over them first to rebuke any ill side affects and for their success in helping in her healing. She, also, refused to allow anyone to say anything negative to her about her illness. She looked up Bible verses about healing and kept declaring them over herself. Her faith was amazing. She knew without a doubt God is stronger than any illness. And when she won she gave him all the glory.
  2. Hi Iffat, I just took a look at your profile page. What a beautiful child. I am guessing she is yours? You sound like you have a beautiful soul too. Welcome.😊
  3. Hi Love, Happy returns.😊
  4. Hi Ora, Welcome. I have only met one other Ora (Ora Belle, in her case). She was my grandmother's nephew's wife and a little country sweetheart. Just seeing your name brought back fond memories. So you have already blessed somebody today, even if you didn't mean to. 😊
  5. Hi Janay, I hope you find exactly what you need here. And if you are looking for Christian friends and heartfelt support, I know you will find that here, too.😊
  6. Hi James. Your experiences sound like great material for several books, both kids' and adults'. I bet you would be a popular guest speaker, too, if you aren't already. What is Nicaragua like? I have been sponsoring a young lady in Managua for around 12 years, and the photos she sends me make me think it is must be beautiful--like a little bit of the Garden of Eden left over.
  7. Does anyone know if these bills passed or not?
  8. This is information I have gathered over many years. Not being a doctor, I caution you to be very careful if you decide to explore any of the herbs I am listing. Please remember, herbs are medicine, too. Though they seem to have fewer side affects than manmade medicine, there is always the chance of allergic reactions or interaction with other drugs or health conditions. For instance, some people can not take foods that contain vit. k because of heart issues, etc., or grapefruit with certain medications. Please do your research if you plan to explore any of these. Herbs that help fight anxiety, etc: Chamomile, verbena, lavender, vit d, skullcap, lemon balm, gingko biloba and red clover. Passion flower is the weaker version of kava-kava without kava's risk. According to my research, don't take with other sedative type herbs, etc. Recommended dosage is very, very low. Kava is very powerful and is one of the herbs that have been researched comparable to prescriptions. Valerian root promotes relaxation and sleep. Omega 3s may help with depression and anxiety. It prevents neurotransmitters from overpowering the brain, preventing leakage of these hormones and regulating their flow. It stabilizes the cells so they can better communicate their messages. It is a possible addition to supplements for bipolar and manic depression. Ginger, rose petals, melatonin, lemon grass are more herbs that might help. So is ashwanghanda, an African herb found in health stores. It reduces the stress hormone cortisol by 28% in just 2 months, anxiety by 44% and depression by 69%. It stabilizes mood, manages weight, treats insomnia, is suppose to work better than psychotherapy and has no side affects. But going overboard on dosage can cause stomach distress and diarrhea. Magnesium deficiency greatly increases anxiety and depression. Foods that have magnesium are dark chocolate, pumpkin seeds, avocados, nuts, fatty fish, whole grains, and leafy greens. Where I am an advocate of herbs, I still encourage you to use caution, carefully research them and work with your primary medical caretaker if you choose to use them.
  9. Hi Dan, Your project sounds like a good idea, not just for PKs, but for others who are struggling in the same areas you are. God had a reason when he made you a writer. 😊 Sent with warm welcomes. 😊
  10. Hi Micaiah, I homeschooled my daughters, too. One is a teacher now and I am very proud of both of them, as I'm sure your family is of you. You sound like a delightful person and I am happy you found us.
  11. Hi😊 it is really nice to meet you. You have got your hands full, that's for sure. Is there project that is standing out in your heart? I don't know how much time you have to work on your books. . . but there was one famous writer, can't remember who, who wrote on one book in the morning and another in the afternoon. Will something like that work for you? I sometimes have the same problem as you. I just feel like they all need to be told and I don't know which should come first. But I found a deadline helps, self-imposed or otherwise. One thing that is helping me is I contribute pieces to a new Christian magazine. Keeping her deadlines is training me to discipline my mind.
  12. Hi Nakeba, how do you pronounce your name? It is very interesting and so are you. Welcome. and God's blessings. 😊
  13. Hi Rebecca, we need Christian romance writers. Far too often people believe they have to dedicate their talent to trash for a buck or whatever. It is always refreshing to pick up a book and not have to be guarded about its contents. When I finish a book, I happily pass it around at work, but there have been times I have thrown a book in the trash, shaking my head at the waste of talent. I'm glad yours won't be one of them.😊
  14. Wes B is echoing what I had learned in researching for my own character accents. All of his advice makes perfect sense. By dropping most of my doggedly plodding through my characters' speeches, I found they did not seem so cartoonistic. I kept only a remnant of their patterns indicating their accents and sprinkled in a word here and there--enough to identify them as they spoke and I was much happier for it. I am also not running the risk of offending someone or losing them through confusion or boredom.
  15. When I first heard bout it I wondered about you and whether you were affected. glad to know you are not there, but my prayers are continuing for all who are and the surrounding areas.
