I Want to Belong Somewhere

Filling the Holes in our Hearts Some time back I searched through a number of Christian blogs. I was looking for a tiny bit of encouragement, a message of hope, or an uplifting post.

Good Morning

Change is in the Air

I’ve been thinking on this blog for months. Actually not just the blog, but the entire website. Does it meet its purpose? Why am I feeling like it’s a weight around my neck lately? Am I burned out? Should I stop writing? My focus over the past few years has been narrow. I did it […]
