Bible Smack Down


Photo credit: Google-Family Guy TV Show I was perusing IG when the usual annoying commercial rolled through my feed. It was a Campbells ad about an interracial family who used one of their soups to make a family traditional meal.

A Woman Loss


I am a woman loss. It has been happening so much more in the last few years because of different things occurring in my life. I am very changed and not always for the better from who I was in my early 30s. I can see it and feel it - my attitude, my mood, thought process. I know that … Continue reading A Woman Loss

God’s Grace


The story has been drilled into every Christian's religious lesson about God's grace. He came, He saw, He forgave, He died and He rose. We are all saved by His grace and mercy.

Question to the Unedited Readers


If you have constantly prayed to God for something and you still have not received it, do you stop praying for that thing and move on?

I Make A Terrible Christian


I am a terrible Christian and have always been. The last time I was in church it was over a month ago and I can't remember the sermon. I have my Bible by my bedside but I infrequently read it now. I prefer 'sinners' to 'saints' because I think most 'sinners' are more honest and … Continue reading I Make A Terrible Christian

Sabbath – Day of Rest

People find it acceptable to work themselves into the ground but struggle to take a moment to breathe. The benefit of a rest day is to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit. It can be a … Continue reading Sabbath – Day of Rest

The Bible and the Fantasy of War


(Copied image) It is hard to miss the current unrest in the middle east and other parts of the world. It is hard to miss the climbing number of soldiers who have died, are injured, and the innocent casualties of the never ending wars. This is certainly not the first time that countries have gone to … Continue reading The Bible and the Fantasy of War

Foresight: Learning To Take A Different Road


copied image Have you ever looked at some people whose lives are in a state of emergency and wondered how did they get there? Have you ever looked at yours and think the same thing.
