The “Truth” Can Hurt

So, the last blog caught some attention. And I’m not going to lie, I am glad. I know there were some who were severely offended by what I had to say, and that’s okay. I probably would have been too if I had read it while I was still a United Pentecostal. But let’s be […]

An Open Letter To My Former Religion

Dear United Pentecostal Church members and leaders, I am one of your poster children for a model UPC home. My parents were at your churches every Sunday morning, Sunday evening, Wednesday night, Friday youth service, and Monday prayer meeting.

Judging The Judgy

Somethings just shouldn’t have to be said. Emotions are running away from me today as I watch as people are judging their fellow humans on social media. I feel like I need to fast Facebook for a while, gain some renewed perspective. I am certain that move will be in the works as I am […]

Oh The Chaos In My Head!

I decided from the get go this would not be on a specific time schedule.  I despise those, just ask my husband.  Maybe, it is just because Tuesdays are my scheduled days off and my mind goes all crazy not being at work.  Whatever the case, this time around, this blog proceeds the first by […]

So Much To Learn!

People write blogs for all sorts of different reasons, some for business, some for fun. This is something, I think, will be more therapeutic for me than anything! I need an outlet, and I have no idea if zero people will ever read this or 100, but either way is okay! I am going to […]
