“Character versus Personality” Do you think you really know someone that you have only ever corresponded with on the internet? Or have you ever seen something that someone has shared or said online, and it doesn’t seem to match who you have perceived them to be? “Being somebody” online can be tricky. There is first […]

“Appetites” An appetite is, “a natural desire to satisfy a bodily need,” but can also mean “a strong desire or liking for something.” Appetites, in and of themselves, are not wrong.

Learning to Wait in the Culture of NOW We live in an instant society. At no other time in history has so much been instantaneous. Instant coffee, instant rice, instant soup, instant heat, instant dinner! And while all of those things were present even twenty years ago, we continue to add the ‘instants’ to our […]

When Inspiration Turns to Impasse “Comparison is the thief of joy.” –Theodore Roosevelt I love being inspired. I would consider myself a creative person. I enjoy thinking outside of the box to make something unique and special. I like pretty things, and I am what some might call “cheap,” although I prefer “frugal.” Websites like […]

Why You Might Need a “Facebook Fast” I recently went on a “Facebook fast.” It was an unintentional fast, brought on partly because of busy life and partly because I was away from home and my computer. It started before I even left home, since I was going through my phone and deleting apps that […]
