Can we stop with this wall nonsense?

I hate the risk of alienating people, but I need for people to stop acting like they are allergic to facts. EASILY VERIFIABLE FACTS. In this Information Age where a simple Google search can tell you just about anything you would ever want to know, a disappointing population of Americans prefers to remain ignorant. On […]

Uhhhh… Who is that?

Better question… Who is that supposed to be,  Time Life Magazine?? I saw this magazine while standing in line impatiently waiting to pay for some last-minute Cgristmas purchases. I didn’t get to give the mag a fair shake, so maybe on the inside they discussed that Jesus did NOT look like the typical Americanized portrayals of Him. However, […]

Kid germs=Graphene-strength

A Living Testimony

Not going to church in months was a major mistake. Sure, I might have had a decent excuse. The physical ills that accompanied my pregnancy made mornings extremely difficult. The discomfort that came from sitting on those church pews was definitely not just a figment of my imagination. But what happened spiritually was even worse […]
