Let Me Get This Straight

I used to be certain about most of the aspects of my faith.  But, over time, some questions arose and I started to examine my faith that is rooted mostly in Western Evangelicalism.  Today, some of the things I encounter in that brand of spirituality don’t make any sense to me any more.  It’s not…

The Little Things

I just got in from taking the dog out.  Honestly, it seems like we play a lot of games with things like this.  I try to do my fair share with the little things around the house, but to be honest, Laura always comes out to be the champ in that area.  Over time, little…
