Michal And Her Grief

These photos, all at the bottom of the post, are from the hydroelectric plant at Belle Isle. Seven years ago, I saw this building for the first time. It’s mostly obscured by trees, a little… Read more »

Wives, Submit to Your Husbands

A lot of things change when you get married and a lot of things change when you’re getting ready to get married. Suddenly you have a new home, new furniture, a new routine, a new person whose feelings you must consider in all of your decisions. But, when you’re getting married, how does the power… Read more »

What it is to be Ageless

I would like to blog about politics, but it feels a little futile. Millions of people are raging against our president, new refugee policies, and the latest atrocity that is the proposed healthcare bill. I enjoy blogging about theology, but that usually requires a level of scholarship and research that I haven’t quite felt up… Read more »

    Happy Monday- Everybody is Sick

    Posted on by

    In honor of all the other interns in the office being sick, I made what looks like a real bad album cover. Whaddup. For real, though, I need to get a lot of vitamin C and a lot of sleep ASAP. Otherwise, today was very good. We learned about working in multi-cultural teams and integrating… Read more »

Donuts make me 100% more excited about everything, including devotions. Praise da Lawd for donuts. We also… Read more »
