Lenten Book Review {with a link-up}

Better late than never, right? Our Lenten reading for the Stella Maris Book Club was a “choose your own adventure” type of deal.  We each pulled a spiritual book off the shelf and (did our best to) read it during Lent.  Rather than have a Facebook discussion like we usually do (love them!), we’re just all […]

3 Reasons I Love Lent

  -1- It gives me superpowers. I have a confession to make.  I don’t love Lent.  It’s difficult and sacrificial and hungry and loooooooong.  I guess that makes the title of this post a little confusing.  Here’s the deal: all of those awful things about Lent are actually things I need to experience from time […]

This month I decided […]

True North

One of my oldest and dearest friends (we’ll call him Lance for now) is an atheist.  Lance is one of my favorite people to debate because he is smart (like wicked smaht) and he rarely (never?) stoops to disrespect when we debate.  He doesn’t scoff at my faith in God (at least not to my […]
