Top Christian Sterotypes of 2011

Quran - Burning

This has been quite a year for Christians. Actually, it’s been more of a year of prominent Christian stereotypes, but they’ve been entertaining if nothing else.

Each year we try to do something creative for Christmas. This year, we decided we’d all tell stories (yes, even Zoe). Mattias, who is eight, penned his own tale, called “The Reindeer Who Had Fear to Fly.” He also illustrated it and read it for the camera. Thought I’d share the final product with all [Read More...]

Who’s Your Daddy? (Excerpted from PregMANcy)
