Is Society Determining What You Eat?

By on Jun 15, 2017

On a good day, I drink six glasses of water, choose half of my carbs from whole grain sources, eat lean protein, avoid processed snacks, enjoy a green salad, and neglect dessert. On a bad day, I forget to drink water, eat countless refined grains, enjoy a large helping of high-fat proteins, munch on processed snack foods, leave the salad mix in the fridge, and help myself to at least a couple desserts. Unfortunately, my life looks like it has a lot of bad days. Do I need to feel guilty for not eating six servings of vegetables every day or for enjoying a beloved dessert? It seems silly to...

5 Characteristics of a Diligent Person

By on Jun 13, 2017

  Diligence is a rare trait in our culture. Our society has an extreme case of laziness; we start projects and lack the focus to finish. While laziness is a prime problem in our society, a lack of hard workers is an age-old problem. The book of Proverbs, which was penned thousands of years ago, talks extensively about the different traits of a lazy person versus a diligent person. If you desire to grow in diligence, the book of Proverbs offers timeless wisdom on how to do so. Without further ado, here are five must-have traits of a diligent person.   1) A diligent person is an...

Rejecting the Greatest Generation

By on May 16, 2017

Here’s a parody of an Amazon Echo commercial that’s been going around lately: What makes this commercial funny?  Cause old people are weird, right?  They can’t hear, they’re not capable of understanding technology, and as this sketch makes clear,  they “don’t know about that”.  It’s OK to laugh, but we shouldn’t consume any media without thinking through the worldview implications of what we’re watching/hearing. Why is there a crisis in our country of people who are lost in their 20’s?  Why does it seem like so many young...

Stop Telling Me to Wear Less Makeup

By on Mar 20, 2017

OH! This is one of my favorite things to talk about, and I think a lot of women can agree with me. It has to do with lots of colors, palettes, brushes… Painting? WRONG! It’s MAKEUP! I’ve been wearing makeup since 9th grade (because I was a cheerleader and we had to wear makeup for football games and cheer competitions). Of course, when I first started wearing makeup, I had NO idea what I was doing. This was around 2008, and there weren’t as many beauty gurus on Youtube as there are now, so you could imagine the struggle of trying to figure out the whole makeup thing…I cringe when I...

Lovers of Self(ies)

By on Mar 14, 2017

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.[1] So it seems that Paul just described an entire generation. It’s become a common saying that the Millennial generation is the most self-absorbed,...

Like My Picture! #Pretty #Instamodel

By on Mar 8, 2017

“Should I post this picture or this picture? Oh wait, I kinda don’t like this one… My face looks funny… do you like it? Which filter should I use? I want it to look natural, but not really!” This might be just a tiny snippet of a conversation you’d hear between girls before posting a picture on Instagram. There are so many things to consider before posting a picture, especially one of yourself: angle, pose, filter, caption, hashtags, time, and much more. I couldn’t agree when people say that social media is this generation’s game changer, but when did it become such a HUGE part of our life...
