I'm working on a non-fiction project called Bohemian Forgiveness: Five Unconventional Paths to Forgiving What You'll Never Forget. There's not much to see on the Facebook page for now but it will come, and I'll be sure to keep you posted.

When I am kind, I am humbly positioned to learn from those around me and from God Himself. When I am kind to my husband he feels safe to be vulnerable. When I'm kind to my thirteen-year-old son, even as I inform him of the consequences of a poor choice, he remains open to me; respectful. When I am kind to myself, others around me feel at ease. When I am kind, I am remain sensitive to the teaching and counsel of His Holy Spirit.
The wise in heart will be called prudent, and sweetness of the lips increase learning. (Proverbs 16:21 NKJV)
I encourage you to speak kindly. The next time you feel frustrated with a family member, pause and think of the kindest way to communicate. You will learn something about you, him/her, and God.
When I die someday, I want this written on my gravestone: She was kind.
