Let Them Live

According to Worldometer, four out of ten pregnant women in the US choose to abort their child. This means forty percent of unborn babies in our nation are slaughtered before they have a chance to even take a breath. Four out of ten children will never celebrate their first birthday. They will never be held…

Suffering

Suffering. If we were to list all that is wrong in the world; all the hurts, injustices, unkindness, and even evils perpetrated on a daily basis, we’d never stop writing. People suffer every day. Some on a regular basis; some mercifully only now and then. But we all suffer at one time or another. It’s…

21 Again!

It’s my second twenty-first birthday. I’m a whole lifetime away from the girl who sat drinking woowoos at the Chili‘s in Manassas the first time around. Four years later I would be exhausted from my sin-soaked lifestyle and I’d move to Richmond to pursue a God-centered life. Surprisingly, I discovered Christian Angela was still a…

Word.

As a writer, I love words. As a Christian living in a post-truth era, I am way over the word games this reality-optional society wants us all to play. People seem to have accepted the ridiculous notion that if you say something, the mere act of you saying it automatically makes it true. Has this…

I’m Sorry, Ms. Jackson, I Am For Real.

This past week many of our jaws hit the floor when Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Jackson iterated that she could not, in response to Senator Marsha Blackburn’s question, define what a “woman” is, because she’s not a biologist. Umm… We all know she was just trying to skirt the question (pun intended). Ketanji Jackson knows…

Yes, We Can

There is very little we can actually control. I think we all feel the truth of that these days; as we watch yet another catastrophe unfold; as we hear of loved ones gone far too soon; as those leading our nation seem to be, at best, asleep at the wheel. And people are so stinking…

What Does Your Sign Say?

It’s the cause we read books about. It’s all over our podcast line-ups. It’s reinforced by the influencers we follow on Instagram. And man, oh man, somehow we always end up steering the conversation there! We can’t get enough! It’s not just us. It’s all over! It’s evidenced by the wide variety of signs we’ve…

The War Zone

Can you feel the ground shaking under your feet? Do you smell the ever-present smoke, acrid and thick, making it hard to breathe? Can you sense the enemies that encircle you like a malevolent vapor, like a cold fog in the damp woods, bringing on an uncontrollable shiver? Do you hear the people screaming as…

You Can’t Fix Crazy

Who is the person that just irritates the living daylights out of you? Can you see their face? Is it me? Regardless of who it is, we all have people in our lives that are hard to get along with. Sometimes, it feels like they go out of their way just to make life unpleasant…

Making Room for More

I’ve never been what you’d call “outdoorsy”. I think nature is beautiful, but don’t ask me to camp. I don’t do bugs. I don’t enjoy peeing outside. I’ll hike to get some exercise and take in some scenery, but I don’t feel the need to commune with the woods any longer than I have to….
