I Cannot Be Trusted

Since dumping cable, I have become an avid YouTube viewer. My diverse list of subscriptions includes airline pilots, historians, and dairy farmers. I don’t know how my sister and I first came across the dairy farming vlogs, but we have been following a couple of them for about a year. My favorite part of these... Continue Reading →

Setting the Anchor Watch

Never before have I needed to so purposely anchor myself to the truth and my hope in Jesus Christ. My concerns for my country and the future have been at the forefront, this week. It is likely that this country has not been so divided since the Civil War. Yet, one party has taken control;... Continue Reading →
