We Got Trust Issues

By on Nov 30, 2017

  A lot of people have trust issues. Personally, my trust issues mostly come from a situation where another person hurt me. I had trusted them, they ultimately found a way to hurt me, and I became closed off to, not only them, but also to other people. I’m sure this issue isn’t just something I deal with, but a lot of people in the church do the same. It’s easy to observe this when I’m teaching my high school students. I ask them to share something as simple as a prayer request, and I just see them look around, avoiding the question or saying something surface-level like, “I need help...

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...

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...
