WSV’s Nancy Boyd writes about the importance of expressing compassion and empathy toward others.
WSV’s Nancy Boyd writes, “I find that life surely does not give us any promises that all will be easy, good or fair. Often these days we are so inundated with negativity, hatred and discord, that we may easily find ourselves buried underneath it all. I only know that for me, my faith is the only thing that is predictable, even though it does not come with a guarantee that life will go according to plan.”
WSV’s Nancy Boyd writes, “If we are seeking happiness from the outside inward, things may become pretty discouraging. If, on the other hand, we seek happiness from our inward being, we will not only learn to experience happiness from within, but to encourage others with whom we share our lives.”
WSV’s Nancy Boyd writes about embracing the secular and the spiritual aspects of the holiday season.
Nancy Boyd writes about seeking compromise and middle ground in highly polarizing times, and finding a path to those places through a personal relationship with God.
Watershed Voice’s Nancy Boyd writes, “Let me always partake of the silence of the trees that surround me in this earthly life. Allow them to teach me what chaos never will, to show me how powerful silence can be for the inward life. The seasons of my life will not come around again, they come only once, and each have their lessons to be received.”
“Nearly all of us are learning of things we could have never predicted, unless we were the scientists whose voices have all too often not been ‘heard.’ And so, we understand that whether or not we know what comes next, it does not always prepare us for how we will respond.”
