“The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.” – Henry David Thoreau
Over the years, I have discovered Thoreau’s words to be very true not only in my own life, but also in the lives of many others. Often our desperation comes from an internal struggle or battle that wages inside our minds and hearts that we keep quiet and try to navigate alone. But “alone” is a disaster and “alone” will never work. We need help.
The problem? Our culture tells us we can do it on our own. Ever heard the old “pull myself up by my own bootstraps” or the words of one of my favorite crooners “I did it my way”? These are wonderful sentiments, but they will never work when it comes to our struggles and challenges.
We were never intended to face the struggles of life locked up inside our own heads and hearts. We were made to face these challenges together. So, let’s take a journey together! In the days to come, I want to lead you through some truths and ideas that will set you free! Now, I have to warn you, it has been my experience that the truth will ultimately set you free, but it might beat the shit out of you in the process!!!! (Excuse my french:-) But, you can do it and I’m excited to help!
I start here because you need to know you are not alone! We are in this together! In fact, much of the work I have done in the past 5 years has been the work of soul coaching to help men and women experience the peace, rest, hope and freedom that I have come to discover in my own life through God’s help and the help of others.
Tomorrow, we begin the journey to reflect back on where we have come from and mine the important truth data to begin the process of healing. If you need to connect or you’re interested in some soul coaching at any time on this journey, you can reach me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
