What A Bloomless Tree Taught Me about Trusting God

By on November 9, 2017 in Christian Life with 2 Comments

There’s a lovely little tree in the front yard of my parents’ house. Well…it used to be lovely. After it had been transplanted from their backyard, all of the clusters of pink flowers were completely snipped off. It looked dead. I was curious as to why, just after this cute little tree was planted right […]

God Is Not Silent About Rape

By on October 24, 2017 in Women's Issues with 0 Comments

God is not silent about rape. The Harvey Weinsteins of the world may believe they can keep it quiet because of their power and wealth. The survivor may believe she cannot speak out in safety or security. But God hears it all. And He is not silent about rape. The Bible neither covers up nor […]

More Than Marriage: What’s Behind Polyamory In the Church

By on September 14, 2017 in Culture, Marriage with 4 Comments

When I first heard the term “polyamory,” it sounded like one of those eyebrow-raising issues you hear about on daytime talk-shows – shocking, extreme, and on the fringe.[1] Less than a decade later, it’s creeping out of the shadows and into the mainstream, and even into the Church. What is polyamory? The word comes from […]

Does Your Search History Know You?

By on June 29, 2017 in Christian Life with 4 Comments

I was sure that I’d been hacked. There was no way that could have appeared on my Facebook page…and consequently on several hundred other people’s news feeds. But somehow, through the all-knowing Google Search which connected to an unknowingly employed Yahoo Reader App, which connected to my social life on a webpage a.k.a. Facebook, the […]

It’s like I blinked and summer was over! This is what I sound like pretty much every August just before the school year starts. Ever been there? You start the summer months with all of these fabulous ideas and projects in mind, only to feel like the entire season was a blur! Maybe you tend […]

The Day I Ditched My 5-Year Plan

By on March 30, 2017 in Christian Life with 1 Comment

I wasn’t supposed to be wearing contacts today. Actually, I wasn’t supposed to be wearing contacts ever again. After 20-some years of fulfilling ever-increasing prescriptions, fumbling around the bathroom counter every morning to find that little blue case, and looking like I’d just seen the end of Steel Magnolias every time mascara flecked off an […]

We Can’t Be Pro-life If We’re Not Anti-Poverty

By on November 3, 2016 in Culture with 7 Comments

We can’t truly be pro-life if we’re not anti-poverty. Follow me through the facts here. Last month, the organization Planned Parenthood celebrated its 100-year anniversary. Since 1916, founder Margaret Sanger’s vision for this organization, reflected even it’s very name, was that every child be a wanted child. But underneath this mantra lay an ambition of […]

Oh The Tangled Web We Weave!

By on October 13, 2016 in Christian Life, Faith with 2 Comments

I hate roaches. I just loathe them. Maybe my disgust is compounded by growing up in Florida where the roaches have wings! I mean, seriously, is there any more nightmarish, repulsive bug? What is it about roaches that makes us instant princess-and-the-pea type wimps? Ask us to stand up to social injustice? You got it! […]

Theology Thursday: Understanding the Mosaic of the Atonement

By on August 25, 2016 in Theology with 0 Comments

I grew up in St. Louis, MO, and one of my favorite places in the city is the Cathedral Basilica. This massive cathedral holds the largest collection of mosaic art in the entire world. It’s breathtaking! Wall-to-wall, intricate glass pieces line vaulted ceilings and vast archways, creating portraits that depict entire stories. Up close, you […]

Theology Thursday: Did Jesus Actually Claim to Be God?

By on June 30, 2016 in Theology with 1 Comment

It was probably the most frustrating conversation I’d had since the time I tried to explain how I forgot to snip the security tag out of my clothes and that’s what was making the alarm go off! (Another story for another day…) She was intelligent, well spoken, and passionate. She knew her stuff. She even knew a […]
