It’s Time to Be Better


I can’t begin to count how many times it’s been that I’ve written the words, “It’s been such a long time.” Once again, here I am saying the same words. However, unlike the past, I don’t feel shamed by them. I haven’t blogged like the beast I used to when I first started this writing journey back in late 2010.…

How Extreme Feminism is Affecting Me


I’m struggling to get this blog post written articulately without getting over emotional. It’s dealing with a topic that has had me boiling mad for the last six months, and it’s not getting any better. I’ll do the best I can with what I’ve got. The rise of extreme feminism in our culture today and how it’s affecting me as…

Triggers Don’t Equal Toxicity


It’s been difficult to scribe much of anything outside my journal or on my social media outlets – through some private groups I’ve been a part of recently for bible studies. I’ve had the words, but the emotions behind them have been challenging for me to bring forth in a published post. It all started when I started The Broken…

The Difference Between Solitude & Isolation


Alone. Solitude. These words have a resounding effect upon many who hear them. “Why is she such a recluse?” “Why doesn’t he like people?” “They’re such a hermit.” The grievous mistake many engage in questioning, and even mocking, other’s need to be alone at times is constant.

The more I read any media sources, the more I discover how much we’re all being lured into the same temptation to identify ourselves by our politics. Identifying ourselves with anything outside of God renders us continually empty. The word politics is a “science of government” and objectifies…

What is Recovery?


It’s been a struggle to re-engage in my writing over the last year. Once a habit is broken and has been replaced with other things, it’s difficult to get back to a place of re-engagement. However, like the pause my husband is taking right now from working on his master’s degree, I needed a pause from consistent published-focused writing. I needed…

Jesus is Our Son’s Eternity


Tonight was one of those off nights where I get home at six o’clock in the evening only to throw a pre-made dinner in the oven to cook…for an hour. Whenever I have these nights, it feels like the whole day is just out of sorts as we dive into our dinner at seven o’clock, and we’re used to eating…

Election Blackout


I posted this on my Facebook page in a Note. I am editing it some for content, as some things came to light today after attending church. ————       It comes down to this: this election season, sprinkled with all the issues our nation and world has endured this year that has had the media in a whirlwind…
