My Mom’s Last Days

My Mom’s Last Days

The other day, my mom told me that she didn’t recognize my dad for a few hours and it scared her. She felt so badly because she loves him so much. It was the moment that I knew her days on this earth would not be much longer. I shared it with my children, my college friends, and the chat room. My children were grieved.

From Lesbian Feminist to Godly Femininity

Written By Emily Thomes Recently I came across the photo on the left and did a double take. The girl in that photo, with her hollow eyes and hopeless heart, no longer bears any resemblance to me.

The King and the Maiden

The King and the Maiden

Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard told a parable about why God did what He did to show us His love. Imagine there was a King who loved a humble maiden. She had no royal pedigree, no education, no standing in the royal court. She dressed in rags. She lived in a hovel; she lived the ragged life of a peasant. But for reasons no one could quite figure out, the King fell in love with this girl in the way the…
