Age Up

I recently hopped on Facebook and saw a flurry of "How hard did aging it you?" posts.  Though I am not someone to post that kind of thing on my Facebook page, I like the space this now-popular prompt provides for self-reflection.  First Facebook profile picture, circa April 2010 I started my Facebook page in…Read more Age Up

No. I don’t stand with women.

This is something I have been trying to piece together for the past few weeks, since the Kavanaugh trial began. I know, that with this post, I should expect some criticism and perhaps hate, but I need to speak my truth. I am tired of feeling silenced and ignored, simply because I have a different…Read more No. I don’t stand with women.

I have this fear.

*Tomorrow, students across the nation with walk out of their classes, to make a stand against gun violence, and to petition for safer schools. These are my thoughts.* I am petrified. Never before have I ever felt a fear like this. I'm terrified that a mass shooting will happen again, but this time, in an…Read more I have this fear.

At this point in my life.

I recently started a new job. And though I'm still in the training phase, this job makes me happy. It satisfies that part of my soul. It's a huge company that provides services to people with disabilities, with services ranging from day programs, child care, and residential aid. (I'm currently a residential aid.) But here's…Read more At this point in my life.

Not Today Satan.

Where do I begin? A lot has been going on, in terms of my spiritual journey.  I'm being challenged.  I'm being forced to face the tension between comfort and growth.  And I'm getting frustrated. I mentioned a bit ago that I'm visiting another church.  My boyfriend really wants to become a part of this church,…Read more Not Today Satan.

What I’ve learned in 21 years.

Today is my 21st birthday. Whoop, whoop! I guess I'm officially an adult now, right?  It's wild, isn't it, this whole getting older thing?  Time moves way to fast, I think .... When I turned 19, I posted a list of the things I had learned in those nineteen years on Facebook.  Looking back at…Read more What I’ve learned in 21 years.

I am pro-life.

The following rant was shared on Facebook by a friend this evening.  It is a nine-part Twitter rant by Patrick S. Tomlinson  (This was copied directly from his Twitter): Whenever abortion comes up, I have a question I've been asking for ten years now of the "Life begins at Conception" crowd. In ten years, no one has EVER…Read more I am pro-life.

Religious Literacy

Hey guys, I'm conducting another study!  This time, it's inspired by a "Religion" class I'm taking.  This particular class is addressing the religious literacy of America, and the textbook makes some interesting claims and insights.  So, I thought I'd investigate a bit. If you are interested, here is the link: Religious Literacy.  Because I am…Read more Religious Literacy

Little Thoughts: Race and Politics

I know from that title alone, this post will garner attention.  This won't be a radically political, or overly opinionated post, I promise.  But it may get emotional, and in terms of these topics, politics and opinions, and emotions go hand in hand. One of my classes this semester has already created some powerful thoughts…Read more Little Thoughts: Race and Politics
