To Be Or Not To Be?

I had the absolute pleasure of spending some quality time with one of my good girlfriends the other night. We’ve known each other for about 12 years but we’d never shared such an intimate moment as we did this particular night. We shared how we see people and situations and each other. I was definitely […]

The Grave Injustice

I want to first express my condolences to the family of Michael Brown, and other young men who have lost their lives in similar situations. I can’t imagine what it would be like to lose my only son, let alone in such tragedy, but I do know that’s a heartache that only the living God […]

When I ponder the truth that God always creates with intent and purpose, I ponder Jeremiah 29:11 and the intimacy we shared with God before we became that embryo twisting, twirling, and forming in our mother’s womb. When I look at my children I see the scripture in […]

Can You Be Gay/Lesbian And Really Be A Christian?

This is one of the most controversial questions of our time. However, in my opinion, there are far better questions to ask, like can you really be a Christian and overlook the suffering of others when you have the ability to help? Or can you really be a Christian and be selfish when the thing […]
