Open letter from a grateful me to the guy that broke my heart

Dear friend,    For a long time, you and “our story” was buried inside me like the wreck of the Titanic on the bottom of the sea – forgotten and invisible, yet part of my story, my past. Even years later, it was very difficult for me to dive to the depth of the sea...

Can you imagine not caring for yourself and still being cared for?

Last week, Jeanne and I celebrated the 10 year anniversary of our marriage. It was a moment to look back, to reflect and to ponder over the effects our marriage has had on the lives of each of us. No words can describe the gratefulness this created in my heart....

Why the image we have of authority is so important part 2

As promised, in this article I will make available an example of Haim Omer's lecture, which embodies these theories and practically shows how this kind of authority could look like. Before I start with this week's thoughts, I would like to briefly recall the last...

Why children need to experience real life with us, their parents

What if you feel too empty to love your family?

As I drove home from church, I made a simple but urgent prayer: "Lord, this week was so packed with all the “last week of summer vacation-stuff” – and I have no inspiration what I should write about in my weekly article! Please, I need your help!”A small voice...

How to walk a way of transformation – four steps toward freedom

This past week, our family spent some amazing days in a lovely family hotel in the south of Germany, in midst of the beautiful nature of Bayern. We were part of a camp, organized by our church. I enjoyed my break from cooking and cleaning; but even more than that, I...

How the traits of my father follow me and how I learned to deal with it

Last week I wrote an article about „My father- and how I learned to honor him“. There I wrote how there was a time when I was “rejecting him and everything (and everyone) resembling him.” How today, “I recognize those attributes of him that I see in myself as...

My father – and how I learned to honor him

When I think of my father today, I see a man who is very upright. Someone who would always give his best. He would never do something he knows would be wrong. His moral standards are very, very high. For years, he worked in a job he actually hated, in order to feed...

How last week I had to force my kids into their happiness

I know how to make my children happy. Chocolate for our girl, permission to play "Rollercoaster Tycoon" on the computer for our oldest, a trip to the Dinosaur Museum for our third one... I could include a whole list of my children's wishes here. And frankly, I love...
