Not In My Name

This is not my usual post. I know that many of you come here for gardening tips or homeschooling support and I love that! I hope that, even though this is different it is a benefit to your spirit. I also hope that you will stick with me, regardless of your religious beliefs. Consider it a personal favor to hear me out....more

What Is Social Justice?

Social Justice is love. It is loving people right where they are and encouraging them to have a better future. Jesus neverdiscriminated against any race, religion, sexual orientation, handicap, etc. In fact, he gravitated towards the ones who were different from him. He sought them out, met them where they were, and he worked miracles....more

Get Reacquainted with the Holy Ghost TODAY

What are your impressions when you think of the Holy Ghost, or the Holy Spirit? For most people, He is relegated to just being a "force" or an energy, but often forgotten as a person. He is the third person of the Godhead - God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit. ...more

Do You Expect Jesus to be Your Friend with Benefits?

I honestly don't really know how to open this post. I want to introduce this topic with a normal introduction, but I think I'll just skip the pleasantries and dive right in. I've been asking some hard questions about what I believe. Questions like: "WHY do I believe what I believe?" "Do I really know Jesus Christ or am I just going through the motions?" "Am I truly trusting Christ for my salvation or am I actually putting my faith in something else?" "Is Jesus enough for me?" ...more
I agree with you Sam. I just posted on my blog about really having a relationship with God who ...more

An Exclusive Excerpt of Finding Mr. Righteous

A few months ago my first book, Finding Mr. Righteous, was released on Kindle and hardcover.  A Christian-in-name-only, I dated freely in spite of my insecurities. An Atheist. A Catholic. A Quaker. A Preacher. A Jew. Some gave me the answers I yearned for, while others left me with more questions....more

I'm Not a Mommy Blogger

If you surveyed the entire community of people who have blogs similar to mine, I would be willing to bet that more than 75% of them are women with children, hereafter known as "Mommy Bloggers". Many of them are stay at home moms and a larger-than-the-national-average percentage home school. These women are a force to be reckoned with and that makes me a little nervous to post anything about them, but I have a few things I want to say....more

5 Characteristics of a Farmer

"The farmer plants seed by taking God’s word to others." -Mark 4:14 We are doing a series on 'The Parable of The Sower' in Church for the next couple of weeks. My pastor is teaching on each of the soils and how to grow and develop as a Christian. Last night at Missional Community my pastor encouraged us to seek out what God was teaching us specifically about this parable....more

5 Important Questions the Noah Movie Raised

Last weekend, I managed to con/convince a few friends into going to see the Noah movie with me. I had heard reviews on every end of the spectrum about it, and I wanted to form my own opinion. I sat down, trying to keep my expectations low and to just enjoy the movie as entertainment, and I got something else entirely.The movie raised deep, theological, important questions inside of me so often that I wanted to be able to pause it and journal for a few minutes before moving on. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a notebook handy and the movie kept plugging along so quickly that I probably couldn’t have gotten a word written down without missing something else, anyway....more
