Finding Your Spiritual Soul Mate Tips: Making Your Romantic Dreams Come True By Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway
One of the most enduring quests of womanhood is to make sure we have a date for Valentine's Day. The holiday of hearts is heralded as a time to be wined, dined and treated like a Goddess and Valentine's day is a "concept" that has captured our fancy as the ultimate date night. By the time February 14th rolls around, no one wants to miss out on dinner, chocolates, flowers, and a mushy card with a love note. For many of us, it is a goal to work toward all year round. Valentine's Day becomes a target date on the calendar, where we mentally pencil in: find a boyfriend!  [More...]

When Someone You Love Pushes Your Buttons . . . By Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway
Nothing is more aggravating in relationships than having your buttons pushed by the one you love. It seems ironic that the one you love could make you so insane. But once the honeymoon period cools and real life sets in, we all take our partners off the pedestal and begin to notice their less than finer points. People often ask me how to fix common relationship problems such as this. Sometimes the best thing to do is just let the dark parts come up so you can shine a light on them. As Mary Sarton once said, "No partner in a love relationship should feel that he has to give up an essential part of himself to make it viable." True love is a state of freedom and authenticity. It is not our place to try to fix, change or make somebody else okay in life.  [More...]
