Re: Loving a child who self-injures

It has been a long weekend. To make a long story short, I finally really know what has been happening to my daughter. The group online I allowed her to join two years ago is a predator group that brain washes young children and turns them against their families by using God. This weekend I got to me...

Re: Fear

Those cracks can be filled in. When they are filled in, we become self assured and confident. Then we can be filled, once we are filled, we can overflow! I believe that is what the phrase "perfect love casts out all fear," means, and that is when "our cup can overflow." We can o...

Re: Loving a child who self-injures

FEAR I think I've figured something out which is changing my relationship with my daughter fairly quickly. Every time she does something which she believes might concern me (not because its necessarily wrong, but because it confronts my fears) she feels she has to hide it from me in order to keep t...

Re: Fear

This is a very interesting conversation because the book I'm reading (the following is a link to the thread on the book) in the first chapter it mentions "fear" being the major method used in Christian Parenting Circles: http://freebelievers.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1997 I have t...

Re: Free book on learning to develop a healthy identity

Great quotes, Aida.
You know I'm always ready for a good read and when the book is free, it's priced right :D I just downloaded it to my Kindle app. I'm reading 4 other books right now...so, I kind of have my hands full, but as soon as I can I'll start reading this one.
Thanks for sharing! :)

Does anyone ever notice that even when circumstances don't change, the moment WE change our attitude things get better?

Re: The Want for Approval

What can be done about a want for approval? I suspect that its the natural expression of other, underlying issues, such as fear, anger, pride and so forth. Paul if I may, I would like to answer your question by sharing my own experience. I just had this conversation with my daughters earlier today....

Re: *** Prayers needed for Darin ***

These are awesome news. It is so exciting for me to think of Darin awake and lucid, talking to his family and telling his sister what to post in the updates... That's amazing. :D

Re: Fear

It used to be about simple survival, we don't have much to fear about that now, at least in the US. Now it seems more about preserving our life "style." I don't know, sometimes I feel I'm fighting for survival on a daily basis. Maybe not on a physical level, but on an mental, emotional an...

Re: Loving a child who self-injures

Thanks Jasmine, I appreciate you words. Sometimes that's what I need the most, someone outside my circumstances confirming what my heart says. I was a mess when I was a teen, not in a rebellious way but in an emotional way. My parents were raised in abusive homes and they tried not to repeat the sam...
