A Political Post Without the Politics

Scripture tells us that authority comes from God and positions of authority have been put in place by Him. Everyone must submit to governing authorities. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God. So anyone who rebels against authority is rebelling against what God has [...]

What happened to Thanksgiving?

In the effort to usher in sales and stimulate the economy, stores around the country are stocking shelves with Christmas lights and ornaments for the tree. What’s odd is that these shelves are sitting right next to the fake tombstones, plastic skulls and costumes for Halloween! I can’t help but feel bad for the month [...]

One Life at a Time

Have you ever seen the movie the Constant Gardener? I watched it in my college dorm room with a group of girls, so I haven’t really seen it either. I do remember that it’s about a couple going to Africa to help children, and every time the lady is told that she can’t help everyone, [...]

Monday Motivation: What We Need

How often do we complain about not having what we need in life? We commonly find ourselves making statements like “I need…” or “If I only had…”. We all make these statements and it doesn’t mean that we’re horrible people, but it probably means that we’re not completely understanding of what “needs” are. A portion [...]

Monday Motivation: But I’m Important

I was here first But I’m hungry I’m a girl But I’ve paid for it I’m important But I’m a crew member! All of these thoughts have at one time or another popped into my head, if not said in protest. Defending my case over what I decided was injustice. Whether a restaurant ran out [...]

Monday Motivation: Even when I don’t understand…

As I sit here writing this blog I find myself at a crossroads. I can choose one of two reactions: bitterness or trust. My head urges me to choose bitterness, while my spirit pleads with me to continue in trust, even though I am hurt and angry. How many times have we all been in [...]

Monday Motivation: The Palatable Gospel

I remember the conversation with a Youth Pastor that ended with “Whatever brings them into the church!”. The intent behind the statement was probably innocent and well meaning. The statement and that idea is bothering me a lot as I look at the next generation of Christians. For many years we’ve accepted the idea that [...]

Monday Motivation: Life’s too Short

I am writing this with a heavy heart. This has been a hard week. On Tuesday, a girl I grew up with was in a car accident and died at the young age of 21. I had many sleep overs at her house and summer days swimming and hanging out. So many memories! As we [...]

Monday Motivation: Roles and Relationships

Daughter, sister, cousin, niece, friend, employee, sister-in-law, aunt, granddaughter, student leader. All of these titles I enjoy, all have changed throughout the years. Some have been added and some are no longer my title. Of all these, there are still a few more that I’d rather have, I desire more now that I’m older. Don’t [...]
