The Difference Between Romance and Love

John A. Tures | February 14, 2016 | GPS for the Soul
One of the best love stories I know doesn't include a guy in fancy clothes and a gal in a gown. It doesn't include a pair of youngsters who hit the genetic lottery and are smitten with each other at first sight. It doesn't comprise a tale of families trying...

Some decisions have repercussions that can last a lifetime. Most of these decisions are made daily, and they require focus and perspective to keep them from haunting you.

How to Win the War Over Self-Condemnation

Amy Crumpton | February 12, 2016 | GPS for the Soul
God made us to be awesome, but it doesn't always feel that way does it? Problems block our path and trap us. Often, one of our biggest obstacles isn't outside of us, but within us.

We Often Regret Greed, But Never Generosity

Derrick De Lise | February 12, 2016 | Religion
As Christians, we are directly called by Jesus, through the beatitudes, to take care of the less fortunate. So often we make excuses to avoid this. When was the last time you regretted giving someone a gift?

5 Reasons You Should Skip Traditional College

Sarah Temte | February 12, 2016 | GPS for the Soul
Our college system is broken. We promote standardized tests, crippling student loan debt, and assembly-line-style education. We tell you that there's a cookie-cutter formula to success, a formula that's based solely on the logo on your diploma and the marketability of your major. And I'm not a fan. So I...

The Work of Love

Sofia Rose Smith | February 12, 2016 | GPS for the Soul
Break-ups can be the pits, and they can also be incredible opportunities for personal and relational growth. I applaud anyone and everyone who has made the choice this year to part with someone to make space for something new. I honor you.

Few Tips for a Week of Love That Will Make You Feel Much Loved Too

Tanushree Ghosh | February 12, 2016 | GPS for the Soul
It doesn't matter if Valentine's Day really is a marketing strategy for selling more stuff or is really about remembering and cherishing love. Everything in life is what you make of it and Valentine's Day is no different.

WATCH: Raise Your Vibration (Virtual Shot of Espresso)

Brad Yates | February 12, 2016 | GPS for the Soul
Here's a quick pick me up, just in case you could use one (or save it for later when you might need it...) If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the "Tap Out Your Fears" series -- which explains the basics of EFT -- click here. As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you! For a picture of the tapping points -- and more info on EFT -- click here. Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer. Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at For EFT with kids, please visit: For more by Brad Yates, click...

The Impulse to Cultism

Mette Ivie Harrison | February 12, 2016 | Religion
Questions about living in a cult are among the first that I often get when I am asked to speak to book clubs or at conferences. How can I, a highly educated woman who has spent many years living outside of Utah, defend such a cult?

Why You Should No Longer Be Afraid to Shine Your Light

Bailey Gaddis | February 12, 2016 | Healthy Living
Do it. Shine your light. If you don't, you could greatly diminish someone else's ability to find their own light. Through allowing your best self to shine you'll likely transform many lives in ways you cannot even begin to imagine. You could be the change this world needs to see to heal itself- don't deprive us of your light.

Share Your Love Story and Tell Theirs

Allison Gilbert | February 12, 2016 | Healthy Living
I hope someday my children will share with their children our particular love story. Mark and I met as teenagers, as counselors at a summer sleep-away camp, and we were immediately smitten. The rest, as they say, is history. This year we'll celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.

The Sacred Cauldron of Longing

Courtney Dukelow | February 12, 2016 | GPS for the Soul
Longing lets us know that we are in fact relational beings. In our culture, there is much conditioning which tells us to disassociate from life or be unattached.
