Gay rescuers in a Tennessee flood.

I read a book in a day. If I were to write a review on it, I actually don’t think I’d say it was a good book. Seems contradictory, since I read it’s 400 something pages in just a few hours. The book’s first chapters drew me in. And while, I didn’t love the characters... Continue Reading →

A word about fish.

Unfortunately, it’s not a revelation from my own brain, but I thought the analogy so brilliant I had to share. I don’t know what care is involved in the upkeep of a salt water aquarium. Apparently a lot. The author, Yancy, I’m reading [The Jesus I never knew] does know. He talks of the meticulous... Continue Reading →

Alive.

Most professing Christians have heard the Scripture in Hebrews that says the Bible is ‘living and active, sharper than any double edge sword, it penetrates the soul’. We’ve heard it, but do we REALLY believe it? John 6 says, ‘the words I have spoken to you are LIFE’. These are bold statements to read over... Continue Reading →

Easter. Like whoa.

I’m pretty well versed in my Christianity; meaning, I’ve been saying the same things for quite sometime. Familiarity can be an amazing gift, but it can also be a tool for dullness and loss of power. For instance, I know my husband is a hunky man. And it’s not that I forget how deeply attracted... Continue Reading →

Do you forgive me?

He says UNITY will enable the world to believe. “I am praying not only for these disciples but also for ALL who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will...

Jonah and the sausage.

I was watching a documentary about a missing girl when all of the sudden it took a turn into the world of child trafficking. The episode ended and I made my way upstairs for bed with a knot in my throat. I laid down that night in the fetal position almost sure I was going... Continue Reading →

The first step.

I just got done reading The Screwtape Letters by CS Lewis. If you don’t know, the book is a collection of letters from an uncle demon to his nephew demon. His nephew is overseeing a “patient” who has recently become a Christian and they are trying to exploit his humanity and derail any gains for... Continue Reading →

The Wailing Room

The wailing room. A story turn is defined as a moment in which the protagonist will never be the same. There are negative turns and positive turns. Right now I’m going through an exercise (via the workbook Storyline) to redeem my negative turns. Donald Miller says that Victor Frankl says, “a person can gain a... Continue Reading →

I’m writing a book.

After you decide to try your hand at writing a book, you have to figure out what it'll be about. I feel like maybe people who have their lives more together, have an idea first and then decide to write about it. I don't have my life together yet though and frankly, I want the... Continue Reading →
