What’s Happening to Chip & Joanna Gaines Affects All of Us

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

I thought it was a joke at first. Wait, is someone really upset that a Christian couple who attends a Christian church has a pastor that preaches a widely accepted message found in the Christian Bible? What’s the story here?

Friday, October 28th, 2016

“You Christians are the worst!” The words stopped me. It was a few years ago, and I was scrolling through the comment section of an online article focused on the latest Christian controversy at the time. Searing words back and forth and from all sides of the issue were spilled like hot tar on an…

The Dye Made Her Do It

Saturday, July 30th, 2016

I have been hesitant to write this for quite some time. Writing and sharing my thoughts online isn’t new to me. I have been posting my opinions and personal experiences on my website since 2013.

Monday, January 11th, 2016

Last summer, I felt God calling my heart to attend a women’s conference in Redding, CA. So with very little planning, I got on a plane and went. I was fully prepared to meet God there, but what happened on my trip out was just as important as anything that took place at the conference.…
