A Quick Thought on Friendship

There can be no true friendship where there is no respect. Respect seems like such a funny word, but it’s the correct one! If we don’t respect the character or conviction of the people we call our friends, an honest and open relationship is darn near impossible. I am thankful to have a few women…

Evil Doesn’t Win

Evil doesn’t win. Maybe you’re as discouraged as I am right now: wondering how to get off this train to crazy town; a place in which farms are bad and fake food is good; where we advocate for murderers instead of their victims; where truth is considered outdated and delusions are celebrated; where God-given freedoms…

Sinfluencers

We’ve got a huge problem in the church. And, no, it’s not the sodium content at the potlucks. It’s an astonishing lack of discernment. And I’m afraid it will lead to a great many walking away from God altogether. I see it in the “likes” and reposts on social media. Some of the smartest, kindest,…

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…
