I remember riding the bus home from middle school when two popular girls sitting cross-armed in the back row decided to take aim at me. Cynthia and Sue. Those were their names.

I don’t know about you, but the next time I hear someone refer to the “new normal,” I think I might scream into my middle daughter’s unacceptable new bikini bottoms that I plan to confiscate and turn into a coronavirus face mask. If adjusting my daily activities according to COVID-19 protoco…

In a future book of mine I am titling it “Beyond Heaven, Earth and Hell”. Contrary to popular Christian thought, teachings and mindsets, Heaven, Earth and Hell will not last forever. We are still living in Bible Days considering the timeline of events as the Great Tribulation, future Millenn…

Washington is not focusing singularly on this virus as the enemy. COVID-19, SARS-2 Coronavirus should be a unifying factor for our country. Our political leadership is not seeing this tragic pandemic as a way to help us move our public health response more efficiently and quickly to accelera…

Ever since our local mayor issued a COVID-19 shelter-in-place-and-go-completely-cocoa bananas order, my family and I have found ourselves cooking more than we have for our entire lives. We’ve even been following recipes and using the actual stove/oven thingy, much to the relief of our exhaus…

Exodus 18:13-27 Gives us the account of where Moses sat as Judge for all the people’s issues. With any group of any size, undoubtedly there will arise disagreements that need settled. The situation here was that Moses wasn’t just doing the difficult cases, but all the easy low hanging fruit …
