Chase Our Dreams

I am a deeply analytical thinker.  Sometimes this is great and sometimes its awful.  But the one thing I hate about being wired so logically is that it has inhibited my ability to dream.  My mind is logical, but my heart is dreaming.  Some of my biggest dreams appear unrealistic.  One of my biggest dreams…

15 Things I Wish I Knew Before College

I just recently finished up my first four years of college. Like most, I was pretty excited for college but I didn’t know what quite to expect. I have put together a list of some of the things I wish I knew before I got here. 1. Who you used to be doesn’t really matter…

Who I Really Am

I write and talk about a lot of different things, some of which have earned me respect and some have done just the opposite.  I often get messages or sit-down in conversations with people who have a much different perception of me than who I really am.  What I mean by this is, often people…

It is Christmas time!  Christmas is cool.  I’m not in love with it, but it is a wonderful time of the year.  This is probably the 2nd highest grossing season for church go-ers, right behind Easter.  Most people know it is Jesus’ birthday and many gather on Saturday nights and Sunday mornings to acknowledge the…

The Anti-Gospel

In the 21st century, the American Church is more known for what it is against than what it is for.  I was watching a late night talk-show host interview people on the street asking them to recite the “Ten Commandments.”  Most of the people did pretty good.  “Don’t steal.  One God.  Dont say God’s name…

I am a 1st-generation college grad completing my senior year as we speak… literally (I’m sitting in Ancient Philosophy).  I grew up in a home, much like many of you, where I was not only encouraged to go to college, but was expected to.  And here I am sitting through hours on hours of lectures…

My Reason for Starting a Blog

Here is the truth for my creating a blog.  I was informed of a program that provides free spiritual books to blog writers under the assumption that they would write a blog review on the book.  I am in the beginning stages of this and have yet to receive my first book.  But, once I…

Jumping on the blog train…

Blogging is becoming the sensation, or maybe it has been the sensation and I am just late to the party.  Either way, I will get a crack at it. I have found that a lot of what I think are ‘really good ideas,’ are contrary to the ‘status quo.’  Sometimes this earns me compliments and…
