Being Intentional

Being Intentional

I can’t think straight. I lean into the counter at my teller station. My vision blurs a little and nausea washes over me. I’ve let my blood sugar get too low and now I’m crashing. To any outside observer, I appear fine, maybe a little tired. Inside, I feel awful. My hands are trembling. I […]

Called to Speak on Adoption

Called to Speak on Adoption

I’m proud to be part of the Blog Hop promoting A Time to Speak. This hop is to spread the word about Nadine Brandes’s new dystopian novel, A Time to Speak, releasing October 16th. It is also to encourage myself and others to speak out for our passions and against injustice. Today I’m speaking out […]

The Mountain

The Mountain

“I’m not climbing that! I can’t.” I shielded my eyes and looked up the steep slope in front of me, there just wasn’t any way. “This is the path I’ve given you.” “But, Lord, this isn’t some hill we’re talking about, this is a mountain!” I took a deep breath and tried to calm myself. […]

Where is that Gentle Voice of Christ?

Where is that Gentle Voice of Christ?

Guest Blogger: Ariel Benjamin When Paul said, “God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them” (2 Corinthians 5:19), he spoke words of love to the Corinthians, revealing that God’s action through Christ relieved them of condemnation. But Christian responses to other Christians are starting to sound more like […]

Avatar & the Savior

Avatar & the Savior

I have been enjoying Avatar, the Last Airbender (the animated series) lately.  Keven actually posted some thoughts on the series a while back. It deals with a world of 4 peoples.  Like so many other stories this has the classic Earth, Wind, Fire and Water as the competing elements.  The twist here is that this […]
