A Recovering People Pleaser

Does the current pandemic trigger you in some ways like it does me? I’ve been reflecting on my recovery from living life as a full blown people pleaser. Perhaps you suffer from this conditioned mindset also? Maybe this post can help.

So many have been force-fed religious beliefs, which often creates a barrier between them and God. Faith is a relationship, not someone else’s projected beliefs… Let’s break down some faith barriers!

THOSE LITTLE MOMENTS

I was almost thirteen years old as I stood in the outfield of a baseball diamond in Carmel, Indiana.
