I got really sick of that whole “Dear Mom on the iPhone” convo that went on a few months ago. Lots of accusing. Lots of excuses. Truth somewhere in the middle. Nothing new there.
I don’t even have a smart phone, or a tablet, [...]
Yesterday, it was pointed out that getting all gushy on Valentine’s Day could be hurtful to others who aren’t in relationships or, perhaps even more, to those who were in rocky relationships.
It’s a good point. And, admittedly, I was a bit chastened upon reading it since, as I’ve acknowledged before, [...]
I’ve been so saddened lately. Some of it is my own hypersensitivity and I am totally willing to own that. I know I get hurt way too easily and take things too personally. That’s my own issue and not something I can blame on others.
But some of it… well, [...]
I’m going to say something so NOT politically correct here…
I don’t feel one bit sorry for the man who shot all those people in Sandy Hook.
NOT ONE BIT.
And, these days, that makes me a bad person. The RIGHT thing– the proper thing– to say [...]
First off, I’d just like to issue a disclaimer that this is NOT a deep, philosophical post that will analyze the impact of gender identification on children. I am also not any kind of therapist whatsoever. I took Psych 101 and Child & Adolescent Psychology in college– neither of these make me any [...]
When I think about it, it’s amazing how little I knew about my failure at being a wife before I started reading blogs. Most notably, it’s staggering to think that I didn’t realize how horribly sexually inadequate I was until I started poring over articles written by “godly women” who embraced their roles [...]
I’ve been thinking about this a lot, lately…
There’s so much talk about the government infringing upon the rights of churches. As a Catholic, I am acutely aware of the impact that Obamacare (<– Obama himself has stated he likes the term, so I’m in no way trying to offend [...]
In the past two days, I have heard two “lunchroom” stories that broke my heart.
The first involved our very own elementary school. You should know that I live in one of the richest– and thinnest– states in the nation. We are always, always in the top five list when [...]
I used to think it was evidence of weakness. Used to think I lacked conviction. I felt like a sub-standard Christian… too much or not enough, depending on the day.
How could I understand and believe in a biblical view of marriage, designed, by God, to be between one man [...]
I’ve likely worn you all out with all my discussions about why I’m pro-life. No matter what. And how I have a very hard time reconciling how someone could be pro-choice and against the death penalty.
I’m not here to beat a dead horse.
But I feel the need [...]
