Heart to Heart – Principle 9, Blessed are the Peacemakers

“We demonstrate our sincerity by taking action.”   Here we see the element of action come back that I have been looking for.  The first eight principles focused on grace and how much nothing we are. Perhaps this principle will bring back the action into “faith without works is dead.” The committee of voices that dictate … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principle 9, Blessed are the Peacemakers

Heart to Heart – Principe 8, They Buried [Their] Weapons of War, for Peace

How hard is it to be a peacemaker?  How hard is it to WANT to be a peacemaker.   Recently, I’ve found myself in the middle of some family tension that I did not create.  Also, I have found tension and issue at work that is the same. I do not believe that I caused the … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principe 8, They Buried [Their] Weapons of War, for Peace

What do we resolve to be?

During this time of the year there is an abundance of gym memberships, goals, and fad-dieting brought into people’s lives.  We want to make changes, but do we commit? Do we resolve to change ourselves?  The definition of resolve uses the words “firm determination” more than once in its various definitions.  We all want to: … Continue reading What do we resolve to be?

The Gift, small yet precious acts of service

A simple act of kindness causes and endless ripple.  So often in our lives as Adult Babies we find ourselves looking in, shamed of ourselves and what we experience daily.  The knowledge that we are aberrant does not escape us.  Knowing can compound our feelings, and push us deeper inside ourselves.  Most, if not all, … Continue reading The Gift, small yet precious acts of service

Heart to Hearth – Principle 7, And never, Until I did cry out

This principle opens with making examples of external and internal controls.  We must learn how to live eternal principles while battling internal and external forces. It speaks of having all desire to do evil removed, and not because we have some external force assisting us or controlling us to behave. One thing that I have … Continue reading Heart to Hearth – Principle 7, And never, Until I did cry out

Heart to Heart – Principle 6, Let This Desire Work In You

I found that I took much less notes in this principle than in previous weeks.  Once again I lead with the scriptures that I read ahead, and then come back and go through the principle in the book.  I find this generates questions that I will then attempt to discover the answers to. During this … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principle 6, Let This Desire Work In You

Heart to Heart – Principle 5 – I of Myself am [Not] More Than a Mortal

This week, my post feels more like notes put together.  Most likely because it really is. This is more a stream of consciousness as I read through the principle.  Please excuse how disjointed I feel my thoughts are this week. The Instagram generation, instant gratification, and appearing to be too perfect.  We create a keeping … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principle 5 – I of Myself am [Not] More Than a Mortal

Being willing to forgive our best friends – Heart to Heart, Principle 5

Adult Babies, Diaper Lovers, Littles, or whatever we call ourselves often are very vulnerable to comments and criticisms.  We are all too hard on ourselves for a large part of our lives that when it comes from external sources we can struggle. Building up the courage to share who we are with someone else is … Continue reading Being willing to forgive our best friends – Heart to Heart, Principle 5

Heart to Heart – Principle 4, Wo unto the Uncircumcised of Heart

I went into this Principle’s meeting a little different than any other.  Right before the meeting started I was emotionally jolted, and it took longer for me to recover than I would have wanted.  I’m sure it affected how I took in the discussion, and so I found myself much more quiet than normal. Perhaps … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principle 4, Wo unto the Uncircumcised of Heart

Heart to Heart – Principle 3 – I Know In Whom I Have Trusted

“Feverishly Active” How we work, and what we choose to work on speak to who we are.  We are told that no amount of service will save us, but without working our faith is dead.  It becomes a confusing line of what is appropriate. We are taught to work, and serve, and those acts are … Continue reading Heart to Heart – Principle 3 – I Know In Whom I Have Trusted
