Which version is God’s true Word?
Since I’ve had my children, I notice that the order of my reactions has changed drastically. I used to react academically first, then emotionally. It took me a year or two to cultivate that skill, but now it’s lost. I react emotionally first, and then revisit the academic as a luxury. I say this because … Continue reading
The third Thursday
While we lift our voices up in praise and adoration and thanksgiving, others are lifting up their voices in anguish and lament. Continue reading
Home: The reason I hike so damn much.

Home was always and never was tangible.

What I’m for: Religiosity as experience, not an idol.

How special you must be to think you’ve got it all figured out. So after she told me how she made sense … Continue reading

“That’s for you,” she says, averting her eyes and avoiding eye contact. The lady thanks her and takes the tract a bit embarrassed. I was reading an article in the New York Times about how to raise moral children. In a study they did, a teacher demonstrated how to play a game and played selfishly … Continue reading
Reminiscence- My Non-Prom
As many of you know, I attended 12 years of Christian school. The only year I wasn’t in Christian school I was home-schooled. That was a joke to be discussed at another time. I have many interesting stories from my years in church school. No, literally, both the schools I attended were in churches. My … Continue reading
