America’s Fading Glory

At a time when we all should celebrate our independence and enjoy the freedoms of living in America, my mind is filled with fear. I have not felt such a fear for our nation since my Freshman year in college when 9/11 hit our country. The difference is that terrorists attacked 14 years ago, and though there is a threat…

Never Say God Can’t Use You

I spent a good bit of my 20s trying to figure out the best way to make an influence, help others, and make a difference for God.

Fifty Shades of deGREYding Women

Everyone can relate to receiving a facebook event invite for some random happening by a person you barely know, from those wrap-your-waist parties to a local fundraiser. Some are totally off the wall, and others may be worth considering. (Like that BBQ wings and ribs sale a friend recently invited me to, which I wished I had been in town…

Turn Down for What?

Before my gym instructors cringe at the appearance of my guzzling down toxic liquid gold again, let me inform the public that this posting is NOT to address my caffeine addiction (though an intervention is most likely needed). Instead, the title (along with the photo) is a pun for the notion of being yourself and not turning down your own…
