Losing Mom One Memory at a Time
“The disease has not yet robbed us of Mom’s personality. We joke about people, or the TV, or the weather, and the same wry Northern wit emerges. But I know that day is likely coming.

7 Interview Questions That Determine Emotional Intelligence
If you’re ever involved in interviewing candidates for a job, here’s a fascinating series of revealing questions.
The Feminism We Don’t Need | TGC
“If I could rewrite the feminist narrative it would be this: We are equal in value and dignity before God. We should, along with men, have a spirit of submission before our God. We cannot and should not do everything men do, as we are not the same as men. We should be protected. While only males should be ordained in the church, women can, like men, receive and proclaim Christ’s kingdom. I reject that to support real things to help women means I must embrace abortion on demand and deny biblically sanctioned submission. Christians should be on the front lines of those who champion valuing and protecting women. We do not, however, overlap with the current feminist mantra. That is good. To be a real woman all you have to do is, well, nothing. Because God made you one or he did not. I love being a woman. But even more than I am female, I am in Christ.”
