We Don’t Know Why

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 19, 2019

A high percentage of human conflict starts when we guess at people’s motives and get it wrong. My favorite Brené Brown story is about this very thing. Her husband opens the refrigerator and mumbles, “There’s nothing to eat in here.” Working in the next room, she assumes he’s complaining that she hasn’t been a good…

New ‘Be’ Resolutions

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 14, 2019

You don’t need me to tell you how few people live out their New Year’s resolutions. And apparently, people’s expectations for resolutions aren’t even particularly high. According to an article I read in Business Insider, 94% of people say you should keep your resolution for at least a month. By March, the number is down…

Feeling Good About Ourselves

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 8, 2018

Ok, here’s one to store in your head and your heart . . . We feel good about ourselves when we do the right thing. It just happens. When we push ourselves to fill out a totally truthful expense report or tax return, it happens. When we volunteer somewhere, giving our time and energy to…

The Platinum Rule

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 27, 2018

Everyone knows the golden rule. Here’s how contributors to Wikipedia explain it . . . “The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as one would wish to be treated. It is a maxim that is found in many religions and cultures.” Jesus taught the Golden Rule in Matthew 7:12 . . . “So whatever you wish that others would…

All About Me

Posted by Regi Campbell on June 25, 2018

While I’m sharing my story with some folks, I mention that I only have a few friends from my B.C. days, all the others have developed since. The guy sitting across the table caught my eye. “Why is that?” he asked. This is what came out of my mouth . . . “If you spend…

Tax Freedom Day? Come On, Man!

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 23, 2018

I don’t write about politics here, and I’m not starting now. But I will talk about Jesus and freedom and selfishness from time to time. I’m told that Tuesday is Tax Freedom Day . . . because 31% of the year has passed, which is the percentage of our national income that goes to pay…

Tackle the Tangles

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 22, 2018

My post last week, “What’s Unpacked Sometimes Unravels,” was the most unnatural thing I’ve ever written. I know it was wise, but so unlike me. I struggle to leave anything alone; I’m the world’s worst at leaving things unpacked. I want to set it straight and get it over with, so I can move on…

Why We Lie

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 19, 2018

Isn’t it weird how we lie? How we spin stories to present ourselves as the people we wish we were instead of who we are? Or how we sit quietly and perpetuate an untruth when we know it’s a lie? And we’ll do it with people we’ve known for years as quick as with total strangers….

True, Kind, and Necessary

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 29, 2018

This time of year, everybody’s working on something. Losing weight, getting in shape, making annual plans, cleaning out, organizing . . . something. I’ve been trying to ‘renew my mind’ by replacing negative thoughts with good, positive ones. I started with this list of adjectives from Philippians 4:8, where He’s telling me to choose ….
