Life on the Other Side of Abuse

Ben and I watched a limited series on Netflix last weekend. Maid chronicles the true story of a woman (Alex) in an abusive relationship who struggles to make a life for herself and her daughter apart from her abuser. It is thrilling when she gets away and finds a safe place. It’s heartbreaking to see…

He’s Got the Whole World..You Know the Thing..

Sometimes prayer seems futile. It’s hard to imagine things actually changing when we voice our concerns to God and ask him to fix what’s wrong. Because sometimes we’ve prayed and seen exactly zero results. That friend keeps going under with their addiction. The cancer doesn’t go away. The better job opportunity goes to someone else….

If There Was No Light, They Couldn’t Throw Shade

I have never been so ready for Jesus to come back. Our culture is one where we fight for the “right” to exterminate our own children from our bodies. The enlightened among us let our children pick their gender, take irreversible hormone “therapy” and go in for elective surgery to butcher their bodies; all in…

All the Feels

I learned a new term this morning in this great article on combatting woke ideology in the workplace (or whatever your sphere of relationships): “Emotional reasoning”. The name says it all, and this way of thinking, based not on fact or evidence, is the modern world’s answer to reality. There’s only one problem with emotional…

Pan-What?

Last night my husband and I watched a clip from an episode of Blue’s Clues. This popular children’s show, targeted at kids age 3-5, was centered on a pride parade, and a drag queen sang out about how proud these different families were to have same-sex parents or even pansexual and asexual family members. Blue’s…

I can’t lie..

Let me jump right in. We are being played by the media. This “virtual reality“ we’ve been living in since 2019 has separated us from real people, and we’ve spent way too much time on Facebook and Twitter, allowing the loudest voices to shape our view of current events. A steady diet of news networks…

See ya, Strawberry Lemonade

When I was 23 my friends thought it would be great idea to go apply at the Cheesecake Factory, so I went along and we all got hired. The money was great and it was an exciting job, but 14 years later it was beginning to feel like the movie Groundhog Day, and I knew…
