Let’s Talk about John Crist
Christians: Kanye West is probably faking it. We're gonna need solid proof that this transformation is real and we shouldn't just support him just because he claims Christianity. He could be a wolf in sheep's clothing. Also Christians: wow I'm praying for John Crist in this hard time. It's so hard living under the spotlight and I hope he gets the help he needs. All these hateful Christians need to stop bringing up his past because they're just gossiping. We need to take a good hard long look at ourselves if this is how we act.
Establishing the Work of My Hands….
I had no idea at the time, but that simple ten-minute phone call with a woman whose name I don’t even remember changed everything for me. That passage resonated with me and for days afterward when the kids were crying or I was second guessing my thoughts to work from home, I would hear these verses in my head.

Hubby Update: What A Difference a Week Makes!
So a week ago I posted this blog about my hubby’s pain issues and the surgeries that were scheduled for next week. We had, quite literally, no idea what we were walking into. That’s some scary stuff. Looking back at all we’ve been through this week, it still awes me how much we didn’t know. I meant to update Friday evening. And then again on Saturday. But it’s taken me a couple of days to get my head together enough to put my thoughts into something coherent. Writing always helps me process. So this blog is as much for me as it is for you. Yesterday I was exhausted. Couldn’t even…
Are we raising up the next generation of leaders? Or have we left them to wander the desert?
Recently I started working on some of our holiday offerings for Radiant Lit. (I know, I know. Quit groaning! If we’re going to gather up products to review or write articles about that will post then, we really should have started at least a month ago! Anyway, one of our more popular series at Radiant Lit was a couple of years ago when we highlighted a lot of Bibles. It seems Bibles are a hot Christmas gift for a lot of people. So we got a ton of Bibles for everyone from toddlers to scholars and everyone in between and we reviewed them. We’re looking at doing this again and I’m…
What Does Forgiveness Look Like? Part One
Not too long ago while I was working on a client’s business, I encountered a situation that made me wonder what forgiveness is. I know that it is choosing to let go when you can hold on. Sometimes it might be releasing a debt that someone owes you. I get that part. But what does it look like in action? Here’s an example to explain what I mean. Let’s say Jimmy George Bob’s sandwich shop is offering franchise opportunities across the U.S. (Do you like that name? I’m good, right? Oh yeah, back to the story. ) It is going to cost quite a bit of money to put a…
