As a licensed Spiritual Practitioner with Centers for Spiritual Living, I’ve had the privilege of praying for others, in person and online. I refer to it as a privilege because when I pray for others, I am also praying for myself, as prayer changes everyone involved! When we pray for others, just like when we… More Praying for Others
One of the teachings I love about Science of Mind/Centers for Spiritual Living is their special prayer. But prayer doesn’t help if we don’t remember to pray! Being trained as a licensed Spiritual Practitioner, prayer was one of the central teachings: Praying for others, praying for ourselves, and praying for the world. I was also… More Remember to Pray

One of the greatest gifts given in New Thought philosophy is teaching its students (notice I did not say followers) how to pray more effectively. Charles Filmore, the founder of the Unity… More Communing with Spirit

I gained a tremendous amount of experience with websites and social media marketing.… More Living Your Dreams
A worried mother raised me. She seemed to worry about everything. I have vivid memories of some of the many things she told me while growing up: Don’t stay out late without friends with you. Don’t walk or drive home at night alone. Don’t go to rock concerts where there are drugs. Don’t …. don’t… More Is Worry a Prayer?
If you want more in your life, learn to love what you have. I thought I understood the concept and applied it to my life. Then came the fire that destroyed our home and belongings. It was then that I really learned to love what I had. This concept does not have anything to do… More Love What You Have
Should we ask for patience? Of course, we all could use more patience, but should we actually ask for prayer for patience? I was in one of my meetings with a group of Spiritual Prayer Practitioners.

It was very interesting since I had not been involved in Practitioner paneling since my own panel in the summer of 2016.
