Free Us From Bullying

Friends came to celebrate Paul’s new release, Free Us From Bullying, and we enjoyed a beautiful central Oregon end-of-summer evening.

Many of my readers know that my husband has committed his life to the work of bullying intervention, healing, and reconciliation in his nonprofit, The

We just know this book will be a great tool in that work, and in the lives of others.

Our hope is that every educator, youth pastor, and parent will read it. Actually all adults should read it. I’m half way through and so very proud of my husband! He’s put his heart and soul into what he’s learned about bullying speaking all over the country in the last 10 years!

Book Release Party

After we mingled together outside over food and drinks, enjoying these, Paul read from his book as we gathered in our tiny house.

Amazing we almost all fit (about 50 of us).

Then our three kids shared their views on bullying.

It’s a powerful message—one we should all hear, and support getting the message out to others.

How to make Mini Tortellini Kebabs

This recipe is so easy. Do not used dried tortellini, but use fresh, in the refrigerated section. There’s something very soft and tasty about the cheese.

Next, on a fun mini skewer (I bought these at Newport Avenue Market in Bend, OR), thread onto the stick the cheese, meat, tortellini, tomato, fresh basil, cheese, meat, and an olive.

Don’t forget the drizzle. Use a very good quality Balsamic Glaze (we use DeLallo’s brand).

28-inch Charcuterie Board

Friends, here are the boards that I LOVE. A “lip” is the secret to the best charcuterie or dinner board, because the food does not fall off. [This post has affiliate links. Every purchase from these links supports RE at no extra cost to you. Thank you!]

MEDIUM Hand-Carved Vine Round Tray (white washed)

SMALL Hand-Carved Gabrielle Tray (gray) – 18 inches.

Rememember it says it is “not food safe,” so you need to prepare the board by either laying down parchment paper under the food, or you can “season” it like we did.

How to season a Charcuterie Board

If a wood board says it “not food safe,” you can lightly sand it down with sand paper, and rub down with beeswax and mineral oil.

Follow along how to season a charcuterie board for the details, but we used this butcher block and cutting board oil conditioner after we lightly sanded the board down.


Here’s a 20-inch wood board from Target with a lip around the outside!

I also found this on Amazon, a LARGE charcuterie board, but it doesn’t have a lip. This Pine Extra Large Charcuterie Board is 22 inches round.

Free Us From Bullying - COUGHLIN

-Bullies are not just naughty, tousle-haired, apple-cheeked children, but calculating, hard-souled individuals, who are never reformed with kindness alone. Neither does being bullied ever make a victim stronger, a frustrating myth.

-Gracious people too often operate from a place of weakness and fear, rather than truth and boundaries, and Paul points out the difference between peace “fakers” and peace makers.

-Free Us From Bullying offers definition, insight and meaningful assistance to anyone dealing with bullying in their home, church, community or heart.
