Greetings from the
Unexpected Spiritual Purpose
Have you ever experienced a spiritual
assignment that you could never have thought up by yourself?
Many of us have. Let me share one of mine.
About three years ago I began writing a woman incarcerated in
a Texas prison. Because she was open to positive change, I
began sending her my books which she began reading. Martha's
favorite is Affirm Your Self Day by Day which is a daily
affirmation book that promotes healthy self-esteem. That in
itself was a spiritual assignment and with an interesting
twist for how my teachings and books would impact another's
life. What happened next is a bigger surprise. I began
receiving requests for the affirmation book from Martha's
friends. This touched my heart, so I sent them books.
The circle has grown. Now I receive 30 or 40 requests a month
from women in Martha's prison, as well as women in other
prisons. Spirit called and I responded. Where are you being
called? Add your stories and comments here.

associating food with love. Let’s take a look at our
personal eating patterns and see what might be brewing below

Question: I need some major advice. I am a
21-year-old mother of two and I have been living with the
father of my children for 2 years. In the beginning of our
relationship, he had told me about this 'platonic' friend of
his from college, how she was special to him but they had
never had sex or been intimate in any way. (This girl lives
nowhere near us). A few months later, one of his college
friends vaguely implied that they had been more than friends,
so I confronted him about it. He admitted to sex with her ONE
time and said “that's how they discovered they could only be
friends.” I was
angry, but I wasn’t about to break off my marriage because
of it, so we moved on with our lives. I then discovered...
