I recently attended a new small group for the first time. Before I walked up to the host’s front door, I had to give myself a little pep talk in the car. “Just smile. That’s all you have to do this time. Smile.” Being an introvert means having an aversion to walking into a room […]Read more "What’s Your Legacy?"
If you have a Facebook account and have somehow managed to miss all the Buzzfeed quizzes, the title of this post may be lost on you. I happen to enjoy the quizzes, even though it’s obvious they have zero authority, no research to back them and are written by amateurs who have yet to learn […]Read more "Which Day of the Week Are You?"
If you saw the title of this post and assumed I would tell you a warm-hearted story about how I shared the gospel with the cashier of the grocery store, you were wrong. Sure. I interacted with cashiers and other people in the check-out line with me. But from their perspective, I was no different […]Read more "Grocery Shopping and The Gospel"
It’s been too long. I know. For a while I didn’t have anything to say. Then I had too much to say. Now I’ll just ease you in. Yesterday was a politically charged day. I’ll save those posts for later. In the meantime, television. When I was first introduced to Criminal Minds (HT: KNS), I […]Read more "The Gospel and TV… or Why I Watch Criminal Minds"
When you think of idol worship, more often than not, you probably picture an image of a golden calf like the one Aaron made for the Israelites while Moses was talking to God.

Gretchen Rubin once said, “Things that go wrong often make the best memories.” I am here to testify to the validity of that statement, and to appease certain cousins of mine who want to see certain stories appear on the blog. If they want the incriminating evidence on the world wide web, who am I […]Read more "How the Gospel Applies to Fools"
I am a 2 on the Enneagram, a melancholic-phlegmatic and an INTJ. When it comes to learning, I am a visual and kinesthetic learner whose top intelligences are music and interpersonal. On the right brain/left brain test I land dead center. According to Strengths Finder, my top 5 strengths are Empathy, Individualizer, Developer, Belief and Relater. […]Read more "What Defines You?"
It began in the beginning, as so many things do. Adam and Eve heard God walking in the garden. They had just eaten fruit from the forbidden tree, so they hid. Adam’s explanation: “I heard You in the garden and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid.” When Moses realized it was […]Read more "Playing Hide-and-Seek with God"
For years now I’ve expressed frustration over the fact that so many musical artists release Christmas albums, but there are very few Easter albums (if any). The problem with this is that without Easter (Resurrection Day is my preferred terminology), Christmas would just be the celebration of another martyr. Bruno Mars didn’t release an Easter […]Read more "The Gospel and Bruno Mars"
I know. I know. It’s Spring Break. You either: A. Don’t want to think about the math homework you’re putting off. B. Have finished school and would rather not look at another math problem again. C. Want to know the rest of the equation in the picture because you think you can solve it. There’s […]Read more "How the Gospel Applies to Math"
