Don’t you just hate waiting?

On November 30, 2010, in Growth, by Michal

I absolutely LOVE marshmallows… in fact, I’m eating a whole bunch while I’m writing this! Did you know that ‘waiting’ has everything to do with YUMMIE marshmallow? Check out this super interesting video: Can you believe that only 30% of these kids were able to wait? And how crazy that this has everything to do [...]


That would be WAY too hard for me!

On November 22, 2010, in Mission, by Michal

Has God put something on your heart that you think is way too hard to do? Something that you really cannot pull off? I have often felt like that about going to school. For some reason, God has kept showing me He wants me to get more education, but I never thought that I would [...]


How do you build self-confidence?

On November 12, 2010, in Growth, by Michal

The most important thing to have as a woman is self-confidence! That’s at least what all the popular fashion programs and magazines say: * If you want to stand out with your style, you have to be self-confident. * You can’t be a Top Model without some great self-confidence. * Successful women are self-confident. Period. [...]


Help! I’m forgetting something!

On November 6, 2010, in How to's, by Michal

Do you ever have that nagging feeling that you are forgetting something, something probably really important? Trust me… I  used to be a complete chaos-person. I always forgot stuff, I was always running late and I was always behind (homework!!) on everything! I was, and often still am, a very-very-last-minute-person. Procrastination is my evil friend.

How will you be remembered?

On November 4, 2010, in Mission, by Michal

At your funeral, what are people going to say about you? What do you want them to say about you? A really great way to discover more about your mission in life and who you are going to be as a person is by wondering what your funeral is going to be like. Sounds depressing? [...]


How do you make new friends?

On October 27, 2010, in People, by Michal

Growing up, our family did a lot of camping. I remember vividly that every time we were setting up on a new camp site, my parents would point out the other kids playing near us and say: ‘There is a kid your age, you should go make new friends!’. Quite frankly, I didn’t always really [...]


Is your life ‘fruitful’?

On October 26, 2010, in Growth, by Michal

Check out this fun animated version of the Parable of the Sower (I’d rather call it ‘The Story of the Seeds’): Did you know that you can represent any one of these seeds? This is what it says in Matthew 13:18-23 about that: “Now listen to the explanation of the parable about the farmer planting [...]
