The One Thing

Y’all know I am all about The Goals. I have lists and quotes and Bible verses. I have books and podcasts on finance, health, simplicity, making dreams a reality, and being a better Christian, friend, co-worker, etc., ad infinitum. I think it’s important to have goals to strive for, and to always be learning and…

Math Hurts

1 pound a week. 6 pages a week. 150 dollars a week. Three goals, broken down into bite-sized pieces. If I can just do these three small things each week for the next year, I will be: 52 pounds lighter. 312 pages into my book. 7,200 dollars down in debt. If I’d known it was…

It is not surprising how many people, while “well-nourished”, develop debilitating diseases such as cancer and fibromyalgia. We are eating fake food and our bodies don’t know…

Get a Corn Dog. Or don’t. Up to you.

Life would be exponentially easier if someone would just hand us a map. We should have a full color guide to our adventure, similar to the ones they hand out at the entrance to Busch Gardens. We could pick out the best places to go, avoid the ones that make us throw up, and plan…

May I Ask Who’s Calling?

Reverend Angela. Pastor Ang. Father Angela. Just trying some different titles out here. I sat talking with my parents, trying to enjoy a nice hummus wrap at The Hill Cafe this evening.
