Mommy Needs A Snack

[caption id="attachment_1012" align="aligncenter" width="936"] For my doctor: These are sea salt sweet potato chips[/caption] I may or may not have danced with my three-year-old son in the middle of the cereal aisle at Walmart.

Super Tuesday: WWJV

It's Super Tuesday and many people feel a little let down by the choices set before them. Many of us are left scratching our heads, asking, "Who would Jesus vote for?" I prayerfully debated between two choices before going to the polls this morning. Both are Christian men, who I…
