Since the death of Billy Graham yesterday, February 21, my social media feeds have been inundated with quotes, blogs, videos, personal opinions, and stories about the well-known evangelist. I don’t have any experience with Billy Graham, personally, but he no doubt had an impact on my life. Let me explain. For me, Billy Graham is a bit of a childhood icon. I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s. We weren’t wealthy. Just regular, small town folk trying to make… Read more

Last week, I chose to remain quiet about the Parkland school shooting. I thought it best to listen a while, both to God and people. For me, that’s proven a good practice. While I’m still as sad and angry as the next gal about the whole ordeal, I’m excited to see a few new talking points come up in discussions I’ve been privy to. Sure, the same old arguments came up. Mostly right and left gun control talking points. That’s… Read more

  As I write this, Valentine’s Day has dawned. It’s dark outside. In Broward County, it’s even darker. Darker than it ever has been, perhaps. But I find myself not wanting to talk about one more school shooting. Nothing’s going to change until we change, and I weary of throwing pearls before swine, as the Bible would say, by telling others that Jesus is the ultimate answer to crime and how we react to crime, only to have my words… Read more

  Below is an excerpt from George Whitefield’s sermon entitled Christ the Best Husband, preached to a Society of Young Ladies. Please read it, and then I will comment briefly (*cough). Consider who the Lord Jesus is, whom you are invited to espouse yourselves unto. He is the best husband. There is none comparable to Jesus Christ. Do you desire one that is great? He is of the highest dignity, he is the glory of heaven, the darling of eternity,… Read more

Some time ago, the leadership of our church decided to switch from the New King James Version and begin using the English Standard Version of the Bible in services. Years ago, I’m thinking well over twenty, I began using the New King James, much to the chagrin of the church where I was raised, which was KJV only. But hey. I was an adult and married and I could finally make my own decisions, thank you very much. (Clearly, I… Read more

We would be better off accepting that though everyone has a specific worldview, leaders who agree with that worldview don’t always get to rule. Read more

As a follower of Jesus Christ, I am not commanded to hire a fellow follower of Jesus Christ to complete a job for me. Read more

All must die. Death is a fact of life. But though we know this in a logical sense, the loss of loved ones always arrives as an unwelcome thief that shocks us with its presence. Read more

      Hygge, if you’re not familiar with the term, is pronounced hue-guh. It’s a Danish term for coziness, and is apparently all the craze as of late. Coziness is not a sufficient translation, as a sufficient translation from Danish to English doesn’t exist, according to my source. But it’s the closest one can get to the real meaning. I’ve just finished reading The Cozy Life by Pia Edberg. It was a short and fast read, but sufficient in… Read more
