    • I am writing some new lessons for our ministry, Shiloh Home of Hope for Women. I posted one under the blog title “What’s Pushing Your Buttons?“.  

      Please leave me some feedback if you have some thoughts on it. Is it clear enough, useful, any suggestions?

      Thanks!

    • Cindy, it’s awesome. Getting your women to recognize and talk about their feelings is so important. I also recommend “Love is a Choice” and “Boundaries” by Drs. Cloud and Townsend.

    • wow! that was a release valve for me.  thank you so much for posting that.  we often wear these masks and forget that there’s a real woman under those masks, screaming to get out and be herself.  this lesson will definitely help those women who feel trapped by their “public persona.”

      I was blessed to be a part of Bishop TD Jakes MegaFest in 2004 and 2005 and one of the sessions i sat in was by Dr. Claudette Copeland (I loaned the DVD to someone, who never returned it, so I cannot remember what year), but the session was about “open wounds” that so many of us women bear, but try desperately to cover up.  Dr. Copeland started the session with a “silent roll call.”  She just named about 40-50 scenarios and labels, and asked that if it applied to you, just stand, look around and return to your seat.  The aim was for women who had been struggling with various issues to first realize that they were not alone.  the second point was for women who judge too quickly to finally get it that they have no business judging because we all have issues.  That session is probably something that will be with me for the rest of my life because it resonated so deeply within me.  Your post just brought all of that to the surface again, and is causing me to go back into a period of self-examination.  CM, I sincerely thank you for that!

    • Thanks, Deb! I’ve read Boundaries, good stuff! Is the other book a Cloud and Townsend also?

    • wow, Psalmist, your comment really touched me. I can see why that experience left such an impression on you! Thanks for sharing this with me!  BTW, I think you are amazing! And I know what you mean about the persona. As a life coach, I sometimes feel I can’t share my own weaknesses for others judging my inability to help them. Feels good to remove those masks!

    • isn’t it great to have this forum to remove those masks and just scream, cry, vent when we need to?
