10 Things I’ve Learned About Marriage…

Tomorrow is our 18th anniversary. For some, that’s a huge milestone…for others (like my grandparents, married 65 years before grandpa passed) it’s just a drop in the bucket. Either way, there are some things I’ve learned along the way. Marriage isn’t about feelings.  Emotions ebb and flow. Romantic feelings don’t keep you together…sometimes it requires […]

Review (and Free Gift Offer!): Glory Days by Max Lucado…

Two disclaimers (one standard, one not so much): first, I did in fact receive a copy of the book in exchange for my review. Even cooler is that it was an Advance Reader’s Copy/Uncorrected Proof. But it in no way swayed my review. Second, and this is slightly embarrassing (and pretty funny, actually): it wasn’t until […]

Same-Sex Marriage, the Church, and Matt Walsh…

The Problem of Rachel Dolezal…

Ok, I’ll admit it, straight off: the title is misleading. Because there’s not just a problem with Rachel Dolezal, but a whole host of them that I have neither the time or desire to address. The problem I do want to write about is the one that nobody seems to be asking. [That’s also misleading, […]

The Fast Metabolism Diet (Review)

On occasion something comes along that is either extremely amazing or overly underwhelming, and a review is in order even if it isn’t a solicited or arranged one.

We’re ALL Hypocrites!

This subject has been on my mind off and on for a few days now after a comment from something I posted elsewhere.
