  It’s that time of year, when I will find ANY excuse to get outside and enjoy the weather.

If you were to ask me when I became a Christian, I’m not sure that I could tell you. I have a vague memory of hearing the gospel and believing it when I was about 6 years old, but it wasn’t exactly an altar call experience. That memory aside, I can’t remember a time when I did not identify as …


The Terrible Idol of the Entertaining

Sharon Book Reviews, Politics 2 Comments

Well it’s Election Day, a day I have been anxiously awaiting. Yes, I am excited to find out who will be our President, but I am just as excited (perhaps even more excited) that today heralds the END of the election season!
