Broken. Abused. Used. Where do I begin... After my last blog (view here) women have reached out to me. They've told me pieces of their stories and poured out their hearts. It wasn't something I expected, but I am thankful for their honesty. I'm thankful for their trust, and I hope I can continue to [...]
I fully realize the recent Starbucks "Christmas" controversy is Internet contrived (and Christians aren't really up in arms about it), BUT I had to put my two cents in anyway--just in case anyone thought there was a war on Christmas going on at Starbucks.

As I perused the Internet I found an interesting comment made by a man who said, "Jesus never claimed to be God." I realized then that I have heard this argument before. Several times actually. You see not all people accept the fact that Jesus was not only the Son of God and Son of [...]
