Do you get tired of eating certain flavors on repeat? I don’t get tired of Tex-Mex or southwestern flavors. In fact, I’ve been known to burn out my family on tacos or any version of a quesadilla/enchilada/Mexican kind of dish. It’s my favorite! But sometimes you just n...

In highschool, my friend, Billy, smoked like a chimney. His girlfriend, Jennifer, hated it. There was no small amount of tension in their relationship because of his chain-smoking ways. The problem wasn’t that Billy didn’t care about what Jennifer thought, he just like...

Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gav...

to us a son is given;

and the government shall be upon[d] his shoulder,

I am absolutely in love with the advent season. In fact, others have found my extreme devotion and commitment to the Christmas season annoying at times (probably due to me starting up Christmas music right after Halloween). Part of me knows it's because I’m a sucker fo...

Growing up in the Catholic tradition, you would assume that I had always had a rich view of baptism and communion.

Well, I didn’t.


I would later have a strong disdain for most of Christianity. All the knowledge I had of it was based on practices I didn’t understand. P...

Let’s talk about theology.

Let’s begin by stating the obvious: it is entirely possible to read, think, and talk about theology in such a way that one dislocates head from heart. This is the exact phenomenon that occasions many of Jesus’ bouts with the Pharisees througho...
