Recovery of America


Politics. That’s the new word to examine everything by in our culture today. The more I read any media sources, the more I discover how much we’re all being lured into the same temptation to identify ourselves by our politics. Identifying ourselves with anything outside of God renders us continually empty. The word politics is a “science of government” and objectifies…

Jesus is Our Son’s Eternity


Tonight was one of those off nights where I get home at six o’clock in the evening only to throw a pre-made dinner in the oven to cook…for an hour. Whenever I have these nights, it feels like the whole day is just out of sorts as we dive into our dinner at seven o’clock, and we’re used to eating…

Feelings Are Meant To Be Felt


Last night, I posted this to my Facebook Page: And herein lies a major problem in our culture – one that is exposing narcissism left and right: People aren’t allowed [with many] to feel, or be even for a moment, sad, disappointed or angry. I just watched a video of Cam Newton in an interview session right after the game.…

The Panthers & Cam Expose Narcissism


Growing up, I wasn’t a huge sports fan. There were some teams I’d sometimes follow, but not consistently. Yet, I’ve always enjoyed movies such as Facing the Giants, The Blind Side, Rudy and many others because of the struggle-victory message they send. A message that encourages humanity to step up to the plate of life and just play. Today, my…

Why Halloween is a Blessing For Me

Trick or Treating happened, but how it started off was with sitting down with a sponsee of mine to chat over breakfast with to celebrate her accomplishments in her recovery journey. It was a…

Picking Up Where I Left Off


Hey everyone, I’m Marni. A grateful believer in Jesus who still struggles with codependency, dependency and anxiety. It’s been nearly two months since my last post, and I’m picking up where I left off. It bugs me that I’ve allowed this to go on for this long…again. Yet, I’m not beating myself up like I have in the past when…

The Art of Courage


Hey everyone, I’m Marni. A grateful believer in Jesus who struggles with codependency, dependency and anxiety. I start my posts off like this now, because through my recovery process the past 6 years, I’ve learned this gives me an accountability to focus on my victories, strength and hope all the while encountering moments of complete and utter weakness. And the…

Knowing God’s Calling


  Hey everyone. It’s Marni again. Still a grateful believer…still struggling with codependency, dependency and anxiety…and still thanking God for my recovery from these struggles. Once upon a time, I thought I knew it all. Once upon a time, I thought I had it all figured out. Once upon a time, I felt this life was supposed to be maneuvered…
