    It is Time to Grieve

    Matthew 5:4 – “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. I am sad. I have very few words to describe how I’m feeling about this supreme court nomination and then turn that our world has taken over the past few years.

    The Church and Sexual Education

    I will begin by stating that I am a huge advocate for comprehensive sexual education. I think the abstinence-only culture we have is completely wrong and we should not be preaching that to our young people. How many of the people who want abstinence-only education actually remained virgins until marriage? Not as many as they would have you believe. Sex…

    Terms & Definitions

    When I was beginning to think of creating this blog, I had the thought that there may be a lot of words thrown out there that people may not know.
