The Self-Check We All Need Before Speaking

Imagine sitting in on a Psychology class with Jesus Christ as the instructor speaking through a seasoned interpreter. You'd learn a lot about overcoming evil with good [Romans 12:21], right? And since it is all too easy in this fallen world to unwittingly embrace and practice evil without fully realizing it, I imagine Jesus would place something of an emphasis upon some honest confrontation in the mirror.

Harrison's work belongs in my library section containing Rabbi Kushner's "When Bad Things Happen to Good People," Schoenheit's "Don't Blame God," and Sanders' "The God Who Risks." But Harrison's book is less theologically dense and broad. Instead, it essentially narrows the focus to a listing of her very practical and palatable advice for victory in mastering Dale Carnegie's first principle: Don't Criticize, Condemn and Complain. She also pulls back the curtain to show the detrimental and limiting effect complaining has upon the complainer.

Everyone can learn from this effort. It is absolutely worth your time to drink from this wellspring of wisdom

About Me

I live in rural Georgia (between two cow pastures and a cotton field) , where I raise my two sons, write, cook, garden, and create and care over things in general. Then I drink a lot hot teas and coffee on the porch and look at the water and think of things I should write and usually never get around to...

In 2010, I got an education degree from AASU in Savannah. A few years later I had my son, and choose to stay home with him after a (very) short career teaching. 

Time spent with my son and I weaving stories on our country porch evolved into a published book made by us. That led to a few more titles for children about faith and family life. 

In 2016 (ish), I began to get honest about why I felt so crummy in general.  Some rough soul scouring was the catalyst for some intense change of heart. Those insights led me to write the The Complainer's Journal and Workbook. 

Today I have plans to garden (a lot - that pic is me fighting green hoses as I dream up a plant nursery in my backyard), as i teach English online, continue to blog, and learn about what makes a family peaceful, supportive, and God honoring all around.
