Let’s Entertain Ourselves…

I did a quick Google search for the definition of "entertainment". I found several suggested definitions, but the first one that came up was a good culmination of several that used the same types of words: "the action of providing or being provided with amusement or enjoyment."

An Open Letter to Girls…

Dear Girls, Hey, let's start with the "good girls". I see you walking through life with the "goody two-shoes" tag on your back. I understand that at times you feel like an outcast. I put "good girls" in quotes because, really? There is no such thing as a perfect or "good" person. We're all flawed,… Continue reading An Open Letter to Girls…

To Judge or Not to Judge? That is the question…

This post has been on my heart and mind for quite some time, and I am finally ready to write it out. I have truly put off this post for more than two months, as I have been searching scripture, seeking in prayer, and examining my own heart. The last thing that I want is… Continue reading To Judge or Not to Judge? That is the question…
