Republicans and Democrats…Religion and Politics

It’s everywhere you look: Facebook…television…the radio…even on your phone’s caller ID. The fight for the position of United States President is in full swing. Here’s what I’m struggling with more than ever this year—You know those Facebook comments,...

Time: The Silent Thief

If you’ve read my blog posts before, you may have picked up on the fact that I often think about how quickly time passes by. Time is on my mind again, as I approach my twentieth high school reunion. When I received a notification on Facebook that some of my old...

Sunday Drive

When you were a child, did your family ever pile in the car and set out on a leisurely journey around town? Maybe as an adult, you do this with your kids? I remember Sunday drives, not with my parents, but with my grandparents. My grandfather would zoom the ancient...

If Walls Could Talk
