it takes courage to grow up & become who you really are. – e.e. cummings (via bradblog)

This past Sunday, Josh Graves introduced some interesting ideas about what a/the table really means. It was interesting, eye-opening, and provoking. Josh has written a book about this subject, so he knows far more; and I’m likely to butcher his thoughts, so take them as my interpretation and not a paraphrase of what he said. Basically, whatContinue reading “The Table.”
I’ve always wanted to be a nun.
Seriously. I have. Growing up, I was a great Christian girl. I could claim that I wanted to serve God the right way, but really, I just like to follow the rules, and I’m good at following rules. Also, I’m very “all-or-nothing”, in pretty much everything. I want my religion to require everything or nothing.Continue reading “I’ve always wanted to be a nun.”
It’s not a pre-determined point in life, these moments of essential change. I would propose that they occur when life gets too settled, too boring, or too content with the status quo. Personally, I believe that these moments, where change is the only thing on a person’s mind, are placed there purposefully, and shouldn’t be disregarded.Continue reading “So….now what?”
An atheist, a preacher, and a bible class.
It’s been almost a year since I met my friends John and Marquis, almost exactly a year. As I think about where this 365 days has taken me, I have to be honest with myself and admit how much these two people and the consequential events that occurred due to my meeting them have sincerely altered my life andContinue reading “An atheist, a preacher, and a bible class.”
We Are The World 25 For Haiti
Okay, somehow I’m just now watching it. I’ve heard so many negative things I thought I shouldn’t waste my time. Granted, I didn’t know most of the people singing and I probably prefer the original (but don’t we always?), but why was everything I heard about this so cynical? I’ve heard arguments about it being not asContinue reading “We Are The World 25 For Haiti”
A Quick Plug
If you ever break your IPhone glass, like I did within 48 hours of having it, you should really check out and use IPhone 3G Screen Repair. They are really fast and polite too. I had a question, so I emailed them and got a response back 20 minutes later, on a Saturday! A QuickContinue reading “A Quick Plug”
Maturing at a Train’s pace.
Rarely does a band and a fan mature together, typically they grow apart, especially if a band’s success lasts more than a decade. Music taste changes in both parties. One of my favorite non-boy bands (yes, I was that girl) in high school was Train. A stark difference between Train and the rest of myContinue reading “Maturing at a Train’s pace.”
A Believing, but Jaded Christian.
I choose to label myself as Christian, not just because I was raised that way or because it’s the most simple label to apply to yourself in Bible belt (which it absolutely is), but because I really think that Christ has a lot to offer when it comes to how a person should live theirContinue reading “A Believing, but Jaded Christian.”
