God Doesn’t Owe Us Anything

We don't consider red hair to be bad (anymore) we don't consider being left handed to be bad, we (shouldn't) consider different races to be bad. So why do we consider disability, so many of which exist in a social context, to be bad?

Master List of Grief Resources

One thing that's been helping me through my grieving process is researching grief. I'm not sure why, but it's comforting for me to understand why I'm doing what I'm doing, and more importantly to know other people go through it. I've found a lot of articles, some of which I'm too lazy to read and/or I think other people… Continue reading Master List of Grief Resources


Jesus is Our Bridegroom, so Why Don’t We Treat Him Like One?

One thing I've picked up on is that when you're in a good, healthy, relationship you feel a constant need for the… Continue reading Jesus is Our Bridegroom, so Why Don’t We Treat Him Like One?

Toxic is Just Another Word For Sinful

Hey, just a heads up that this post implies some transgender ideology. That is in no way the intent and in fact the opposite intent is intended - That our sex has very little to do with our personality. So, the latest buzzword in the social media world (and perhaps the "real" world as well)… Continue reading Toxic is Just Another Word For Sinful
