The Unsettledness of Advent

This year I’m using God is in the Manger: Reflections on Advent and Christmas as my daily Advent devotional. It’s taken from the writings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was a German pastor and theologian who lived, wrote, and ministered during the build up to World War II. After the Nazi government took control of the […]

Technical Difficulties

Generic tech advice STINKS! “You just need to play with it. Try things out. Explore all the buttons and options till you figure the program out.” or “Oh it’s easy, all you have to do is, . . . (insert something I’ve tried a half dozen times already and didn’t work)” Ummm, yeah. . . […]

Be Careful What You Fall in Love With

Two years ago as a single mom in my mid-thirties I fell in love, head over heels in love. I can’t say it was unexpected, I was a broken person searching for love. I had accounts on several dating sites, trying to find my Mr. Right in MrWrong.com world. Maybe I was on the verge […]

Do You Have a Book Inside of You?

I was listening to this interview yesterday with author, Margaret Feinberg. She has written many Bravester-type of books. In this interview she said this, studies have shown that 70 percent of Americans believe they have a book in them. 70%!!!!  I believe when it comes to Christians that number probably goes up even higher because […]
