You’ve got this

I don’t care much about what most people think. Don’t get me wrong, I would be absolutely thrilled if everyone thought I was amazing 100% of the time, but this simply isn’t reality. I’ve learned that there are a lot of people who will think a lot of different things about me, but largely, their …read more →

Singing on Silent Saturday

I’ve never been a faithful observer of holidays. To me, one day is much like the next. Having said that, yesterday was Easter, the day we remember the moment death died. That’s worth at least a mention. One thing that often happens on holidays is an influx of holiday themed memes and sayings floating around …read more →

Pain without Doubt

One thing I can confidently say about my 20’s is that God was teaching me how to be totally unoffended by Him, what it looked like to have an unoffendable love and see His goodness in everything, even the things that hurt… Maybe especially in the things that hurt. Subsequently, I can’t say that my …read more →

Coffee Cups, Candidates and Convictions

Allow me to introduce you to my coffee cup (and a view of my back yard. Don’t worry, it’s only natural to be a little jealous.) My coffee cup is blue. It has a Starbucks logo on the side. It’s roughly 12oz. (which is not nearly enough, but I make do.) It does what it was …read more →

You don’t have to scare me into heaven

My family is fond of deep discussions. It is common place for someone to randomly blurt out, “What are your thoughts on ‘the Anakim of Old?’” (The giants spoken of in Genesis) Leading to a lively conversation which is revisited for days, possibly weeks. Most recently we’ve been discussing eternal security, again. This topic comes up every …read more →

What do you want?

There is a favored question that consistently pops up whenever conversation finds its way to the topic of my future: “So, what do you want?” I hate this question. Well, hate may be a little strong… This question frustrates me and my answer tends to frustrate the asker. It’s far too simple. What do I want …read more →

My Doppelgänger

I’ve become aware that I have a real life doppelgänger, a look alike of epic proportions. She could be my twin, only she’s much, much cooler than me. In fact, she beats me out in pretty much every way. She’s incredibly talented; she has a blog, she writes music, she sings and plays beautifully. She …read more →

A 50/50 marriage

Split the work. Cut it in half. I do mine, you do yours. Do away with gender roles. Everything even. This is the modern concept of marriage. But does it really work? Is it really what we want? This morning I spent about 30 minutes in the kitchen cleaning up after some company my roommates …read more →

Can You Hear Me Now?

This morning I’m sitting, bundled up, space heater blasting, watching a snow storm over the ocean from my three-season room. It might be worth noting that “winter” is not one of the three seasons this room was built for, but I’m ok with that. This is our first real snow storm of the year, and I’m …read more →
