Be Like A Child Once Again

“We really do at the core of us have a young child within and when we meet each other at that level, with the united heart of one child reaching out to the other’s child, we simply live out peace much better in our daily lives.” Heidi Lepper Barrett shares another post in her column for The Well.

MIRROR: My Inner Responses Reflect On Relationships

The glass mirror as we know it today is only about 200 or so years old. For most of human history it was only in still water where one could see what one ‘looked’ like. Which begs the question: at any moment, do you know what you ‘look’ like? Not identifying features such as the shape of your nose or color of your eyes … but do you know what you ‘look’ like to others? When others see your face, do they want to approach you or avoid you? When others see your face, do they feel welcomed and loved or not so much? When God looks at you, does He see His own Light reflected back? Heidi Lepper Barrett explores in her latest post for The Well’s blog.

The Invitation of The Gospel: Do You Really Accept It?

“In the end what we all want is to have inner peace so we can live out the Gospel. But it’s pride and shame and our inner thoughts that actually promote most of our suffering and distress. We have been conditioned from day one that there is in fact something to pursue that is greater than God himself.” Heidi Lepper Barrett shares on how pride and shame create havoc with our identity as daughters of God.

❤️>H8: From Disgust to Compassion

  • by

Deep within our human brain lies a small region where our sense of disgust for self or other is formed, processed, and triggered. But in the exact same brain region, so too is compassion formed, processed, and triggered. You can make a conscious choice to go in one of two directions: to harm or to comfort; to hate or to love; to destroy or to support. Social psychologist Heidi Lepper Barrett shares more in this reflection.
