Check to make sure your fruit isn’t rotten…

Every now and then I perform a reflective self-check of sorts. The Apostle Paul wrote an epistle to the Christian community in Galatia (he explicitly says this in verse 2). The book in the Bible that houses said epistle is aptly titled… You already know… Galatians. After supplying a greeting that is typical of his epistles and […]

Even teething can have Biblical applications :-)

My sweet five-month-old is struggling to break in her first tooth. Teething is a monster of a process. A little baby with no understanding of what is happening is subjected to pain and fevers. Soleil has been drooling more than usual and her skin, if not kept dry, can develop a rash, particularly in the […]

A bitter, merry laugh

I am frustrated because everyone who has read Abusing His Grace has said overall good things about it, but I’m still looking for ideas to increase its visibility. I have a few independent bookstores that said they would carry a copy for me, but I thought it would be a good idea to see what Christian marketing […]

Black Friday… Bleccch

Great Lakes Crossing, a behemoth of a mall boasting almost 185 stores and attractions, is one of my favorite places to pass the time. One thing I love about my family is how we can make anything an adventure. We bask in simple pleasures. So even if we’re not about to go buy up the […]

#whyIdidntreport

  Donald J. Trump has given me reason number 738402836454929874625368490 to be happy that it never occurred to me to vote for him to be the president of this country. He issued yet another tone-deaf tweet today in reference to the allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh, in short, questioning why the assault wasn’t reported by […]

You were elected without even campaigning!

  As I believe I have said before, I had a hard time determining a career path because I wanted to do..everything. I wanted to be a teacher, then a doctor, then a nurse, an occupational therapist, a physical therapist, a nursing home administrator, a hospice program administrator… Good Lord. All of my many career […]
