Boys Relate to the World Through Motion

One study says that male brains are designed to connect perception and coordinated action, while female brains are designed to communicate between analytical and intuitive mental processing. [1] In other words, boys relate to the world through motion. “On average, boys do show higher activity levels than girls from infancy onward. They are more likely [...]

Is Your Child a Visual, Auditory or Kinesthetic Learner?

Each child has a way of learning which resonates with them.  What type is your child? Understanding how your child processes information (and even how you do, too) will help you tailor instruction to a form that is most readily integrated.   Now, I realize not every lesson can be tailored to a specific learning [...]

Taking a Multivitamin and Omega-3s

People today have pretty stressful lives.  I know I do, with the demands of running The Center, writing and speaking, commitments to my faith community, to say nothing of being my wife's husband and my kids' dad.  It's a lot.  Because life is stressful, with many demands on time and energy, sometimes nutrition derived from [...]

Bind Your Happiness to God’s Approval

Over and over again, I have heard the anguished cry of someone saying to me, "But it's not fair!"  Often I cannot offer them anything more than agreement; their situation and what happened to them is not fair.  This world is not fair.  The good die young while the wicked prosper and live to a [...]

Validate Yourself and Know Your Worth

It is very easy to fall into the trap of thinking your worth as a person also comes from what you do instead of who you are.  It is also easy to see your worth as being reflected off others instead of shining out from inside.  When you allow other people or outside situations to [...]

Technology: Keeping Track of Your Teenager

“Where is Andy? Did you call his phone?” Brad was torn between frustration and concern, so he settled for both. “Of course, I did,” Brad’s wife, Janice, answered. “Just went to voice mail.” “Why’d we get him the phone in the first place, if he won’t answer it?” Janice, recognizing this as a rhetorical question, [...]

Nothing is Etched in Stone

On my desk at The Center in Edmonds, Washington, is a beautiful, flat rock.  Carved into this rock that I use as a paperweight are the words, "Nothing is etched in stone."  I keep this motto in front of me as a reminder that God has given me an overwhelming sense of freedom to exercise [...]

When Risk-Seeking Crosses the Line

Risk-seekers can become addicted to much more than gambling. Risk-seeking becomes addictive when the risk behaviors cross the line into danger or obsession. Helping a person understand a risk-seeking addiction can be difficult because people have such different ways of evaluating risk. One person I counseled was a mountain climber. We have some beautiful mountains [...]

Mothers and Their Bond with Children

Few would disagree that, on average, most moms tend to spend more minutes per day with children than do most dads.  Especially for young children, in most households, mothers are the primary caregivers as they engage in everyday business of living.  While the ratios have changed with the higher percentage of women in the work [...]
