The Answer For Charlottesville… The Answer for All of Us

Sunday, August 13th, 2017

I think many of us are finally sorting through our thoughts after the events that unfolded in Charlottesville this weekend. I know that my emotions have been all over the place. I’ve been disgusted.

Yesterday morning I was scrolling through Facebook on my phone while the kids were playing in the other room.

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?

The Civil War of 2016

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

  I think this is what they call Civil War. We’re imploding as a nation. We’re attacking our own neighbors… our friends. Families are dividing – brother against brother. We’re hurt.

“You Christians Are the Worst!” he said.

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…
