Time to Celebrate

Some of the weapons that Satan uses against us are discouragement and hopelessness. Yes, the media, arts and entertainment, government and other spheres of influence disgust us daily, but don't let it get you down.

Kneel, Stand, Move, Repeat

It's football season in America and a lot of us have discussed the issues and activism that can distract us from enjoying the game of professional football. We all know the conflict between the NFL, former quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and even the President of these United States.

Due Process? Do Something!

This morning, after more than a week of negotiations between Senate leadership and Ms. Christina Blasey Ford, the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh, another accusation of sexual misconduct arises to delay the confirmation process for Kavanaugh.
