Times like these, I miss the “olden” days

I got my first job in the mid-90s. Back then, it was super easy to get a job. You either heard a job was hiring or you saw an ad in the newspaper, which was delivered every day, went to the place, filled out a paper application and, if you were particularly savvy, asked to […]

Is your church…and home…and heart…A judgment-free zone?

A few years back I joined Planet Fitness. It was conveniently located a few minutes away from my job and I would use my lunch break to fit in a short workout. I absolutely loved it. I always left feeling better than when I’d first come in, which is why I’m looking forward to continuing […]

Stop making stuff up!

I was very displeased to see that a conservative group that supports Trump, America First Policies, will release an ad on Christmas in which a cute little girl at the end thanks Trump for “allowing her to say Merry Christmas again”. You know what Christians… I am getting very tired of some of you. We […]

The night before his birthday I stayed awake for quite some time, marveling at the fact that I have been a mother for over a decade. It wasn’t anything I signed up […]

Praying with no action behind it?

Just like the rest of America, I have been watching the developments around the country, confused, appalled, amazed, saddened… experiencing a mishmash of emotions as I have tried to commandeer hurricane relief initiatives within my church and watching the shooting in Vegas unfold overnight. At times I find myself wondering, what kind of world are […]

Jesus was considered “fake news” too…

Just because you disagree with something doesn’t make it fake. I haven’t yet figured out a way to talk to people who refuse facts without getting angry.  Mind you, I don’t get angry right away, but I am tired of providing people with facts that I can support with actual evidence only to still be […]
