When I read devotions, it’s always talking about using different words; find a new narrative in your head; because using different words will change how you think and feel. People, especially older adults, think of the online world as self-serving instead of serving. If the narrative in your head is “self-serving,” you will spend less time […]
Two kinds of crowds exist in the Christian world: the peace makers who believe that forgiveness means reconciliation no matter what the situation or the danger, and people like me who understand that forgiveness is more important and reconciliation is not always possible. Esther Fleece wrote, No More Faking Fine, and it is a clarion […]
Beginning in March, the vlog series, “Coffee with Nikki” will begin again. I am saving a little each week to buy the Corel Video Studio program as Serif is not really meeting my needs. Initially, it was great, but the separation of the audio and video files has created a sync issue. I work with […]
