The Honest Faith: How to be Kind

Surprisingly, maybe I should wipe that word from my vocabulary, I received a lot of negative feedback from last week’s article. I’m not sure why kindness rubs people the wrong way. I think it’s primarily due to the fact that if other people are mean why can’t I be mean back? Regardless, there was one…

The Honest Faith: Grinding

Recently my car has been making a grinding sound from the rear wheels. I know it’s not healthy for my vehicle to continue to drive like that, as it may be the brakes rusting over. My car is old. Well 12 years old, but in car years that’s almost an eternity. I’m going to get…

Honest Faith: Putting God Back Together

Today I learned about a modern Jewish phrase and a bit of the story behind it. I was very intrigued by this story because it was a complete twist on the creation story that I was taught in Sunday school growing. up. I’ve always loved the creation story. There is so much beauty, depth, and layers…

The 5 Things I Learned Taking a Break From Public Arguements

Admittedly, I’m a heavy facebook user. I’m pretty much on there all day, as I partially use it for work, and partially for keeping up with friends and family.  Recently I’ve been going through a lot of new things professionally and personally. I’m in the middle of this transition of thinking of myself as a…
