Learning the Virtues

By Linda Seger - Mar 29 2017


When everything is going well in our business, we are usually judged by our knowledge and our ability to do our job well. Virtues may not seem essential. We’re doing just fine. Does anything really change because we’re virtuous? There are many ways to define virtues. The book of Galatians in the New Testament lists […]

Perks and Problems of Becoming ‘Important’

By Linda Seger - Feb 15 2017


Success, like failure, brings with it extra baggage. Sometimes that baggage is like a suitcase filled with wonderful things – new adventures, additional opportunities, pretty new possessions, exciting relationships. But not always. And sometimes our fear of the negatives of success may keep us from becoming successful. Many of us might be happy to have […]

Judging Justice Issues In Politics

By Linda Seger - Dec 06 2016


In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s election season. That means feeling, at times, like we’re in the Gladiator Ring. It also means this is a time for us to think about national and international issues, and how our spirituality naturally leads to political choices. Many issues in this campaign relate to women and minorities. We need […]

Pride Goes Before the Fall

By Linda Seger - Sep 24 2016


Whereas envy resides in the pit of the stomach, pride is in our head. We feel full of ourselves. Pride puffs itself up, becoming invulnerable so no one can prick our lofty self. Pride not only believes we are the best, but no one can touch us. Nothing can get through to pride. It receives […]

Sloth is Not a Harmless Sin! Recognize & Defeat Apathy Before it Defeats You!

By Linda Seger - Sep 06 2016


Sloth doesn’t care. It’s not just about an occasional laziness. Sloth isn’t the relaxation we all need when we kick back, and do nothing. In most cases, this slowing down is necessary for a balanced professional life. Don’t mistake sloth for relaxation. Spiritually, we can handle sloth in our own lives by giving in to […]

The Deadly Sin of Anger

By Linda Seger - Aug 07 2016


What’s wrong with anger? Many of us have spent some time in therapy, getting in touch with our emotions, expressing rather than hiding our anger. We know Jesus got so furious at the money-changers in front of the temple that he overturned their tables, and made a whip and went after them. It doesn’t sound […]

The Pervasive Hunger of Gluttony

By Linda Seger - Jul 07 2016


Gluttony is deceptive, because it believes we truly need much. Gluttony wants to gulp down, to over-indulge and over-consume. It believes if you don’t have the right car, you don’t get hired, so you suddenly need the expensive car. If you don’t have the trophy wife or trophy husband, you won’t be able to get […]

Overcoming the Deadly Sin of Lust

By Linda Seger - May 27 2016


We often think of lust as sexual desire, sometimes leading to uncontrollable sex with one person, sometimes the constant desire and need of many partners. Although lust or lechery is usually equated with the excessive desire for sex, it is sometimes considered to be an excessive desire for anything. It is sometimes humorously asked, “How […]

By Linda Seger - May 04 2016


This is the story behind an inspirational quote by my mother Mama Agnes Seger in my book, What Our Mamas Taught Us. The quote is,  “Life isn’t over yet – things often equalize in the end.” Mother often noticed that mothers who had several children try to make everything equal. Once she said to me, “Just because […]

Greed: Getting Up Close & Personal with Envy’s Wicked Step-Sister

By Linda Seger - Apr 15 2016


As women working in the world, we try to do well in our work, perhaps even making the world a little better because of our work. But I expect many of us have noticed there are resistances, struggles, negative forces that work against us. Sometimes I call this the “molasses” we have to get through. […]

Pushed, Pulled, Nudged or Shoved: How We Find Our Calling

By Linda Seger - Mar 17 2016


Many professional women don’t want to settle. We have ideas, dreams, and visions. Many of us realize, at some point, that we don’t fit neatly into the corporate world or the man’s world or the world that someone else defined for us. But, we couldn’t figure out how to build our own world. Many of […]
