A Reader’s Response

It’s not often that I get much response to my blogs other than a few short comments on Facebook and likes here and there. But, last week after I wrote about Men, Ministry and Sexual Misconduct I received an email that I want to share. Julia Ruggieri is a high school math teacher in southern […]

Grace Without Truth

I have a friend on Facebook who posted this today: “I was having conversation with one of my dearest friends earlier tonight over dinner when we got on the light topic of abortion (lol). If I actually had time, I would seriously consider bringing gifts once a month to all abortion clinics. I would hand […]

Don’t Fall for It

I was reading a blog the other day and the writer was talking about the level of discourse in our nation today. His conclusion was that we don’t really have a divide over politics, rather we have a much more serious problem. The writer said that Americans have gotten to a place where they just […]

In the Safety of Grace

I’m reading the book Boundaries by Drs. Henry Cloud and John Townsend. I plan to write about boundaries once I finish the book, but a line in the book caught my attention that I want to share because I found it really powerful. The authors describe a group counseling session where one of the members […]
