• No One Likes Change

    I used to wear hats all the time in high school and college. I had a vast pool of hats that I could choose from, usually of the sports teams that I supported. My collection of hats now have dwindled to one. Most of the hats got lost in various places- movie theaters, planes, subway,… Continue Reading

  • Spoken Word

    I don’t remember being as nervous as I was this past Sunday over a sermon. I tossed and turned the night before, not being able to sleep.

There once was a mama frog and her son. The Son… Continue Reading

    I wanted to blog about this video before the bandwagon for it becomes too full. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do so. It’s a bit “long” as it’s 11 minutes long. But I think it’s totally worth it: The part that got to me the most was when Caine went back to school… Continue Reading
