The Soul-Sucking Art of Legalism

Hello, my name is Darlene Hull and I am a legalist. Sometimes I feel like I should introduce myself like that just to warn people.  I’m not sure where this came from but legalism is such a part of my life that it affects everything.  The first time I actually noticed it was way back in the 80’s when I read Richard Rohr’s book The Enneagram: A...

The Weight of Weight

The blogging challenge is over.  Now it’s up to me to keep going on my own. I’ve been working on a kind of schedule for this blog.  I thought I’d deal with my spiritual challenges and discoveries on Tuesdays, my physical challenges and discoveries on Thursdays, and let stuff surprise us all on Saturdays.

What’s this all about, anyway?

Day five of the seven day blogging challenge asks me to share the reason for this blog, and a bit about what I’m hoping to achieve.

What Am I Most Proud Of?

Day 4 of the blogging challenge asks the question “What Am I Most Proud Of?” and that question is easy!  My family! I grew up a pretty independent, rather selfish sort of a person.  Somewhat wild and impulsive, not very big on the compassion/mercy end of things.  I’m much more of a “suck it up, sister” kind of gal. One day, while I...
