Pandemic Thoughts from one Christian’s Perspective

"I'm not going to tell you what news sources to believe, which leaders are making the smartest decisions, or when all this is going to end and everyone can go back to life as we knew it....What I am going to tell you is my thoughts, observations, and reminders on how to live out our Christian lives during these times"

Trusting God in the Face of the Unknown

It's funny how we can look at others and know just how they should respond towards hard life events, and yet, when it's us, we find it so difficult. We look at the Israelites in the wilderness and during the time of the judges and sigh heavily. "C'mon guys, why can't you just trust God?... Continue Reading →

When God Seems Unfair

When reading through the Bible, we come across many different types of events. Some, like the story of David and Goliath, are exciting, encouraging us to trust God, while others, like Paul's letter to Philemon, overflow with compassion.

Monday marks the one year anniversary of my first day in the fast-food industry. It's been a long year. I wasn't suppose to be here.

Today is my 4th day of my Poverty Awareness Challenge. Let me back up.
