Christians and social media: Would Jesus "follow" you?

Christians and social media: Would Jesus "follow" you?
Four little letters have the power to change and convict the hardest heart and wildest behavior: WWJD? What would Jesus do? This catch-all question was great for reminding believers to be cautious of their actions and their words.  Now that social media is mainstream for our daily life, a great question for believers could be:...

Christians and the same-sex marriage ruling

Christians and the same-sex marriage ruling
At the expense of being asked to step out of leadership at my church, or who knows what else, I’m going to voice my opinion on the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage.  I want to say that it “amazes me” how close-minded people are, but that would not be true because I don’t find...

Things I'd like to tell fat people...Lord forgive me!

Things I'd like to tell fat people...Lord forgive me!
I know it sounds terrible. It’s that dreaded “F” word: FAT–a word no one wants to be called but a descriptor we use nonetheless. Truth is truth, I don’t like the word either, and although it’s not my style to be rude or crass or mean, yet, like anybody else, I get tired of people... Read more »

Breaking it off with my fat friend is hard to do on Mother's Day weekend, but it must be done!

Breaking it off with my fat friend is hard to do on Mother's Day weekend, but it must be done!
That’s it. I’m done. I have tried to maintain our friendship for all of my life, but I can’t any longer. My fat friend must go! The bottom line is, she is just unhealthy for me. Every time I get myself on track to work my fitness program or eat right or try new things,... Read more »

YOU BETTER WATCH OUT! MEN-O-PAUSE HAS COME TO TOWN!

YOU BETTER WATCH OUT! MEN-O-PAUSE HAS COME TO TOWN!
We all know Barry Manilow’s holiday classic “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” The song encourages all kids to watch out, not pout, or cry. And we love and thank Barry for this timeless treasure. But who these kids really better watch out for, and keep their lips quiet from pouting is the real grinch... Read more »

All I want for Christmas is to stay out of jail

All I want for Christmas is to stay out of jail
I thought I wanted the same kinds of gifts most moms want for Christmas, but I realized last night all I really want for Christmas is to stay out of jail.  I don’t know any other way to put it, than to say that my teenage daughter is trying to kill me, or have me... Read more »

Season finale of Preachers of LA brought me to tears

Season finale of Preachers of LA brought me to tears
The Season Finale of Preachers of LA brought me to tears. After weeks of blogging about their debauchery and lavish lifestyles, and their greed and questionable acts on the show and in their lives, when all was said and done, at the end of it, I cried.  And not because of the reasons listed above....

Stuck in a Rut? Three Simple Steps to Uplift Your Spirits

Stuck in a Rut? Three Simple Steps to Uplift Your Spirits
Every season, without fail, there’s a workout to help get your body in shape to match the weather. There’s the how-to-get-bikini-abs-for-summer workout, or the how-to-get-those-thighs-in-shape-for-leather-weather, and so on and so forth.  Partially practical. Interestingly intriguing. And may be mildly motivating for some, and wildly so for others–and that’s great. In a world where we have more... Read more »

Trained by hardship and discipline

Trained by hardship and discipline
As someone who’s done all kinds of fitness workouts and routines, nothing has been more difficult and beneficial than being trained by hardship and discipline. It’s not an actual workout anyone sets out to do either. At least I didn’t. I literally stumbled upon it in my Christian walk–pun intended. I, like many others, thought... Read more »
