Today, I’m Thankful for Faith

By Dawn Onley Today, I’m thankful for faith. I’m grateful that there’s a hope that defies logic. I’m in awe of how children practice faith — so completely. We can learn a lot about faith from a child. Children don’t question for a moment that we will catch them when they jump or when they fall. They…

Go and Be Great!

By Dawn Onley It’s quite possible that we cannot fully realize our potential until we exercise faith. In love. In the pursuit of our passions. In our vocations. In healing. In life. Repeatedly we are instructed on the importance of faith, from a spiritual context: “Faith can move mountains.” – Matthew 17:20 “Faith is a…

Today is the Perfect Day to Take Action

“If you want to know your past, look into your present conditions. If you want to know your future, look into your present actions.” – Padmasambhava By Dawn Onley It’s so easy to get into a rut.

The Power of the Mind

By Dawn Onley To accomplish anything in life, there is always a way. There is always a chance. There is always hope. If you do not believe the above three statements to be true, they are not true — for you. You don’t need to do anything. You can stop reading at this point. This…

Here I Am, World…

By Dawn Onley Your highest self is waiting for you. My highest self is awaiting me. This is not simply a concept or a theory. It’s a truth that is as old as the ages, and it is only unleashed through faith. At night, we dream big dreams for ourselves, but we have no idea of how…

Whether we like getting it out of a book, a television drama series, or near the water cooler at work, most of us have…

I work as a public relations and marketing director. I know words. I know sentence structure. I understand style and grammar. I’m familiar…

Keeping the Faith While We Wait

“Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful.

Days and weeks pass by and still no answer, no resolution, nothing. You begin to lose…

I’m No Quitter, I’m Just Better at Letting Go

By Samantha McKenzie A few years ago the idea of quitting would evoke my inner dragon. I hated quitting anything. It would make me feel as though I was incapable or weak or not smart enough. I was convinced that I could take on the world and carried this fearlessness around like a badge of honor….

Hang On To Your Faith

By Samantha McKenzie “And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.”  Matthew 17:20 I used to carry…
