Pretend you’re Starbucks.

Plastic_cup-2

So far, I have met zero Christians who are mad at Starbucks. My Facebook feed has, however, been overrun by Christians who don't care what Starbucks puts on its cups, and are embarrassed by the few noisy meat heads who say they feel persecuted by having to drink their $11 lattes out of a red cup rather than a red cup with a light red reindeer on it.Which leads me to believe that this is one of those Big Fat Nothing stories, and the more noise we make about denouncing it, the closer to … [Read more...]

The Stupids Get On Board the Potty Train

This is the advantage of having ten children. I don't even think, "This doesn't bother me, because I know I have good reasons for doing things the way I do them." I just think, "Yep, I'm a bad parent. Oh well. Hey, maybe she'll give me some of her candy!"

Sorry for the bloggy silence lately! Lots of writing deadlines coming up (if you could spare a prayer I do a good job, I'd appreciate it very much!), plus birthday parties, doctor appointments, potty training, and July 4th (which we're having at our house, and which is bringing out the Marney in me).Maybe you're wondering where I was on Monday, during my radio spot with Mark Shea. Well, I was lying down, because I forgot it was Monday. Sorry. It wasn't because I didn't feel like talking … [Read more...]

On the radio today: ERRYTHING

I blame the baby!

I'm not gonna lie to you: ever since I had the baby, if you took all of my thoughts and put them in a bag and shook it hard, nothing would happen. Because the bag would be empty!
