Eyes On The Prize

What should we do during COVID-19 pandemic and worldwide scrambling? I know my roll and it isn’t toilet paper. I’ve been told what lane to drive in and where to focus my eyes set on the horizon. Regardless of long lines, food and toilet paper shortages, and grim outlooks… My concern cannot be not only … More Eyes On The Prize

Cruelty- Free

This year, my son has been enduring religious persecution from a physics teacher in his high school. I’ve had to get involved, and honestly it’s been a horrible process. It’s kept me up at night, I’ve spent hours carefully typing and wording emails, talking to school staff on the phone, and it’s been exhausting. It … More Cruelty- Free

Trippin

  I messed up this week while making a comment on Facebook. I know. I should have known better. It’s a trap. Speak nothing but rainbows, unicorns, and butterflies on social media. I’d made a statement about the law, and someone I didn’t know responded, “Make sure you know what the laws are before you … More Trippin

Feeling sheepish.

Ten years ago, a dear friend of mine was in a very bad place in life. Addiction, anger, depression, trouble with the law, and ashamed. I love this man like a brother.

There are theories, ideas, and evidences, but each person puts their faith in one of those theories to support the beliefs they want to … More I believe in science.

  Anyone else hate the daunting weight of perseverance? The idea of it is great, but the implementation of it frankly stinks. The embodiment of determination in spite of weariness. Perseverance is making the decision to keep going when all you want to do is quit. There is something very hard to comprehend when going … More Under His wings.

End Game

Sometimes I don’t understand God’s plan. Sometimes I am completely confused at what direction God wants me to take.  I feel fairly powerless in a good portion of the struggles I’ve been fighting, and it’s been stressful. In spite of these things, God has a plan. The Apostle Peter didn’t always understand the plan. Maybe … More End Game

Open House

I was walking through my house today, listening to the sounds of 8 teenagers hanging out and laughing. Some were listening to music, one looking up scripture, and the others were comfortably stewn about the furniture. This is the scene most Sunday afternoons. I have the great blessing of living next to my church. It’s … More Open House
