Sharon Apologetics, Evangelism, Worldview 5 Comments

Today I read an interesting articled published in First Things magazine by David B. Hart entitled “Believe It Or Not.” Hart is a Christian apologist who specifically grapples with the beliefs of New Atheism, and he does so in his book Atheist Delusions. This most recent article is written as a response to a recently published book titled 50 Voices …

Looking for the Christ-Like Potential

Yesterday Cas spoke at WBS about the second half of Philippians 3 and knocked it out of the park! (I’m still working on posting the audio but we’re having technical difficulties. I’m probably the difficulty, but I’m working on it.) Since I can’t post the audio, I wanted to highlight something she said that has not only captivated my imagination …

Not So Unexpected Consequences

About a year ago I wrote a post about a prophetic warning written by the Pope 40 years ago about the cultural consequences of using contraception. Since that time, my then-fiancé and I decided to begin the journey of Natural Family Planning, which I’ve written about it some here. Ike and I have been married now for about 2 and …

Life Without Regrets

Sharon Forgiveness, Pop-Culture, Worldview 1 Comment

The next time you hear someone say, “I don’t believe in having regrets,” pay attention. You’ll most likely hear it from a celebrity on t.v., but it’s a mantra that has come to define our culture. We are a culture that doesn’t believe in having regrets. What this really means is that no one ever wants to admit they made …

God Became Human, And So Should You

Sharon Community, Evangelism, Worldview 2 Comments

Every week I get on this blog and write in a way that attempts to sound somewhat authoritative and thoughtful. I like to give the impression that I know what the heck I’m doing, but I really don’t. I’m constantly growing and learning about life and God and myself, and this blog is no exception. As a writer, I’m always …

Do the numbers matter?

Welcome back to She Worships.  Sharon is still living it up on her honeymoon, but you are sitting by your computer (or snazzy iPhone) reading a blog post from some nerdy medical student.  Sounds like a fair trade huh?  Hey!,  you didn’t have to be so frank.  You could’ve just chuckled. Like Sharon said on Tuesday’s post, my name is …

When Science Gets in the Way of Your Theology…or vice versa

Sharon Theology, Uncategorized, Worldview 3 Comments

While I’m on my honeymoon, my friend David Goodman will be posting his thoughts about the relationship between science and theology. Now before you tune out because this sounds nerdy/boring, you should know that my conversations with him have surrounded the issue of birth control, and that’s why I’ve asked him to post. He is going into his 4th year …

The Only Voice That Matters is Yours

Sharon Pop-Culture, Self-esteem, Worldview 1 Comment

Ever since I was a small child I can remember watching valiant attempts at effective, anti-drug campaigns on t.v. Who can forget the famous father and son drug confrontation??–“I learned it from watching you!” (In case you aren’t familiar with this 80’s classic, you can check it out here) Twenty years later those commercials still pepper the television. And while some …
