Shoring Up Episode 2

Episode 0102: When you feel shame, you want to hide, pretend, cover up. Others may shun you or you may isolate yourself.

The Grass is (not always) Greener

The Grass is (not always) Greener

A message from Angel Angell: I’m a dreamer, a visionary or maybe I just get bored easily. I like adventure, mission, and knowing that what I’m doing is making a difference, and I especially love when I get praised for my hard work. I also adore my kids, but the thing about my children is they rarely offer much positive feedback. I have yet to get a thank you card in the mail from any of them. When I’m changing a diaper in a sleep-deprived state...

When I worked as a camp counselor one summer, I had a girl in my cabin who was horrifically slow at everything. She was a precious fifth grade girl who just took her time getting things done.

I had half an hour to get seven girls ready, the cabin cleaned and walk to the flag pole. Well, with “Miss Take Her Time,” we were a few...

Free from being Good

Free from being Good

My childhood goal was to be a “good girl,” taking perfectionism to a whole new level. I belonged to every club, was an honor student, and felt incredibly guilty if I did not have an hour of quiet time with God every evening—praying and reading my Bible. I knew the Truth that God would not love me less for any sin I committed. This was not hard for me to grasp since I thought I had not committed any sin too hellacious at this point. However, I...

Yes, … Later

For the first two weeks of her new job, Kim Till, the Chief Advancement Officer for Dallas Seminary, would not sit at her desk. She’d work rigorously at the table next to her desk, while glancing over at her desk chair from time to time. She considered the full weight of raising millions of dollars annually—a heavy burden for any person to carry, not to mention the first woman to ever be entrusted with such a responsibility. After two weeks of...
