Loving The UnLovable

loving the unlovableLoving the Unlovable with Felice Gerwitz

Podcast #180

From time to time we’ve all struggled with loving the unlovable. At times if we admit it, I’m sure we’ve been unlovable to someone else. In this podcast we discover ways to love when there is no reason to love and the best ways to serve others and still be true to self.

The most terrible poverty is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved – Mother Teresa…

Show Notes: Loving The Unlovable

In life we all have challenges but possibly one of the most difficult is those who are unlovable –This could be:

  1. Family members
  2. Extended family
  3. Those who are in your circle of friends
  4. Outside influences

More Quotes By Mother Teresa:

  • “Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do…but how much love we put in that action” Mother Teresa
  • “Whatever you do for your family, for your children, for your husband, for your wife, you do for God. All we do, our prayers, our work, our suffering, is for Jesus.” Mother Teresa
  • “People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may acuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It is never between you and them anyway.” Mother Teresa of Calcutta

A person who you deme to be unlovable can control your attitude and mood – or you can pray for the grace to deal with the situation. LOVE – love tends to be what other people do for you – instead of Christian love which is emphasized by turning the other cheek or Matthew 25:40 – Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me..

Nutshell Solutions For Loving The Unlovable –

  1. Treat others as Jesus would
  2. Remember: We are all unlovable at times –  Remember to balance tough love with compassion.
  3. The more you love GOD the more grace He will pour out into the situation. Romans 8:38-39
  4. Serve others when there is no way they can repay you… Matthew 25:40
  5. Expect nothing in return – Matthew 5:46 – If you love only those who love you – what reward is there for that…
  6. Sometimes the ones hardest to love are those who need our love the most.

Losing Religion, Finding Grace – MBFLP 161

 

What happens when you do everything right and it turns out terribly, awfully wrong? Do you doubt God’s love? Does it shake your faith? Or does it drive you to a closer walk with your Lord and Savior?

This episode, we talk with Kendra Fletcher, the author of the new book, Lost & Found: Losing Religion, Finding Grace. Kendra and her husband Andy Fletcher (hosts of Homeschooling IRL on this network) have seen both sides of the coin, as God brought them from a cold, rule-based religiosity, to a living faith in a living Jesus day by day. You’ll find it both challenging and encouraging as we talk about this crucially important distinction!

Show Notes: True Womanhood

True and authentic womanhood is a gift from the Almighty God – something that NO one can take away from YOU – because YOU have been entrusted with a very special gift – and now I want to share that gift.

  1. True womanhood is closely connected to love, it gives life it is balance
  2. True womanhood remembers the gift of our feminine genius – this is the charism that the Holy Spirit gives to women.
  3. True womanhood understands we have our dignity.
  4. True womanhood isn’t an either or – it isn’t a revolution it is a gift given to us as good by our very nature, the fabric of our womanhood. Gen 1:28 “Fill the earth and subdue it” [Given to both men and women.]
  5. True womanhood is realizing by our very nature, we are the only ones who are called daughter – mother – wife – no other. We are gifted with intuition, sensitivity generosity, and self-giving. We are gifted with loyalty… women are fiercely loyal.
  6. True and authentic womanhood is knowing who you are despite being marginalized by society or the circumstances in your life.
  7. True and authentic womanhood gains its strength from an infilling of the Holy Spirit.
  8. True womanhood is the courage to take this gift we’ve been given and pass it on as a legacy to our children.
  9. True womanhood is the gift of being an equal partner (not better or worse than) our male counterpart. Genesis 2:20 “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper fit for him” [The help is not one-sided but mutual—womanhood expresses the “human” as much as manhood does but in a different way.]
  10. True womanhood remembers the greatest example in history and that is the mother of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and that is Mary. She exemplifies all that is good and holy in motherhood.

Making Reading Easier

making reading easierMaking Reading Easier by Dr. Jan Bedell

 

A prerequisite to reading using the phonics approach is a good auditory processing ability (auditory short term memory).  If processing is not well developed, reading with phonics past three letter words can be next to impossible.  Don’t go buy another phonics program!  It isn’t the phonics program that is the issue, it is the processing that causes the difficulty.  You will learn what to do when phonics is not working and how to prepare the brain to be able to use phonics in the future.

When you work on this auditory processing skill and the others mentioned above, it can be instrumental in reducing the symptoms of dyslexia and other reading challenges.  Specific techniques to make reading easier are taught in this session. You will also understand how to improve reading comprehension.

 

Be sure to get the handout attached for information and discounts.

Mother-in-Law Bread

Mother in Law Bread by Sue Meyer

Sue Tells the story of baking bread with her dad as she was growing up and why she felt that this was one of her most important memories. Join Sue for this heart-warming story.

Visit Sue’s website Homeopathy For Mommies here

Find the recipe here:

Mother-in-Law Bread…You can do the math to decrease this batch. This recipe will make 8 to 10 loaves (depending on my mood!)

Some fun variations are: to add garlic and or dried chives, to the bread dough when mixing for a touch of the Italian flavor. Also, kids love to make mini loaves or even to roll them into breadsticks. (when made into breadsticks, 15-20 minutes is usually sufficient baking time.)
