This is Spring Break for many. So instead of a regular blog I want to introduce you to a couple of posts I think you will enjoy.
Busting Myths on Highly Sensitive People
Last year I learned the term Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) and that in many ways I am one. The chapter on HSPs in Anne Bogel’s book Reading People solved the mystery of why I don’t fit into the neat personality category in which I score. What a comfort to see my perceived weaknesses can actually benefit me and others.
Cheri Gregory brings understanding on HSPs and provides a place for HSP Christian women to find community. I met Cheri through the Grit ’n’ Grace podcast she does with my talented friend Amy Carroll. Her posts resonated with me in many ways. She even provides links to explore the topic further including an assessment to see if you are an HSP.
Whether you are an HSP or live, work, or worship with one, I think you’ll find her site eye opening and helpful.
Cheri begins her series:
We’ve always known that we’re a quirky family; we like to think it’s part of what makes us so endearing. But until a few years ago, I didn’t realize that our seemingly unrelated foibles actually fall under the same umbrella.
Each of us becomes easily over-stimulated.”

Busting Myths on How to Go to Heaven
Jim White, former Assistant Athletic Director at NC State, is our witty friend who listens to the Bee Gees and follows sports. After underdog Loyola-Chicago easily beat Kansas State, CBS analyst Charles Barkley wanted to spend some time with their 98-year-old chaplain Sister Jean.
‘I’m 80-20 against’… Charles Barkley, in the studio, responded to the clip…. It was pretty much 80-20 me going to the Pearly Gates anyway, so I’m not going to say anything bad about Sister Jean…(laughing by all)…it’s gonna be hard to make up that 80 percent…I don’t want to give my 20 percent away’”…
Jim offers a great response to the myth that God decides who enters heaven based on how our good deeds stack against our bad ones. Read his response here.
If your area is enjoying good weather, I hope you grab some time outside. And I’d love to hear your thoughts on HSPs and the Barley-Sister Jean story.Busting myths on Highly Sensitive People and how to go to heaven. #truth, #insight Click To Tweet
