Pregnancy Centers: The Original Safe Space

If you are on social media, watch cable news, or know a millennial, you may have heard the phrase safe space. We have seen these spaces take shape, predominately, on college campuses, but today I want to let you in on a little secret. These spaces were not started by my generation, millennials, to air [...]

Charlie Gard: A Case for Life

In recent weeks, you probably read about Charlie Gard and his fight for life. You can read in detail about his family’s story here, here, and most recently here. I am not going to rehash the story, but I would encourage you to visit the links provided and familiarize yourself with the Gard family. As [...]


Healthcare is dominating the headlines today. It doesn’t matter where you go for your news; we are being bombarded with CBO analyses, political posturing, and finger pointing. Those on the left are attempting to maintain perceived gains while those on the right attempt to completely deconstruct much of the last eight years as they seek [...]

Maundy Thursday

What is Maundy Thursday? Why is this day important for the world? Maundy is a shortened form of the Latin word mandatum meaning ‘command’. So today we celebrate and reflect on Christ’s commandment to the disciples at the Last Supper. A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I [...]

Parenting in the Desert

As a parent, I can testify there is no hurt that compares to the pain of watching your child hurt. Anyone who watched their child struggle with hurt, pain, fear, and loss would liken it to daggers of fire piercing their hearts. Been there, done that. I have said more than once that I would [...]
