I love my dog, Charlie. We adopted him from a shelter over a year ago, and man, was it a roller coaster week! When we first saw him and interacted with him, he would not come near us. It was a great challenge to get him in the car and drive him home. What made matters worseContinue reading “Second Chances”
Even when hope seems slim and you are in your darkest hour, God does not forsake us, and we are never alone.
Sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned. Whether it be with our careers, our families, unforeseeable tragedies… or a global pandemic continuing to steal people’s lives and create chaos. We can’t see the future, but with a plan… life sometimes feels a bit more in control. Until it spirals out of control. What then? What doContinue reading “Needing a Hero”
I love watching the Olympics. 206 nations come together in a series of games to compete for the bronze, silver, and gold while trying to set some world records. There’s nothing quite like it. I suppose, a few millennia ago, the only thing that would cause such a convergence of countries would be plagues, violence,Continue reading “Going for Gold”
Are you at a point in your life where you feel forgotten, abandoned, or alone? Do you feel hopeless to the point where you can’t find the light in life again?

Does your prayer life ever feel stuck, staid or superfluous? One chapter of the Bible gives us a recipe for how we can talk to God on a personal and genuine level.
I love singing Christmas songs. Some have gotten old, some have become annoying yet I still find myself humming, “I want a hippopotamus for Christmas,” while doing the dishes, and some are enchanting like the hymn Silent Night. The text below comes from the third stanza and has been sung to celebrate the birth ofContinue reading “The Story Behind Silent Night”
2020. A year of a million memes, tragedies, quirks and new norms. A year that will go down in history for a global health pandemic, mass protesting, state-wide lockdowns and where masks are the new normal. An election year, nonetheless. Perhaps it will be remembered like 1776, 1912, 2001 or 1492. Perhaps 20 years fromContinue reading “Beyond 2020”
The seasons are changing, the nights are getting longer, and pumpkins, fall and Halloween approaches. And in this time, people like to watch scary movies, go to haunted houses, or be tricked into feeling afraid. Not me – that’s a negative ghost rider. There’s actual footage of me crying my eyes out as a six-year-oldContinue reading “Falling out of Fear”
