Preparing for the Ceremony

God and I have been on very shaky terms for quite awhile now.  I’d gotten sucked into Fundamentalist Christianity the last few years of my marriage and when I left, I had to refind my faith away from the dogma I was fed there.  Between the “mature” women in my church, my pastor, and Nancy, …

Sunday Bonus Post – An Epiphany

What is Duck Dynasty and why is it clogging my FB newsfeed?  For the past few days I’ve seen article after article and opinion after opinion pop up about this guy’s alleged racist and homophobic comments.  The only thing I know about the show and what was said are the few things I’ve gleaned from …

My Faith

God saved me a few years before my marriage died.  I started attending a Southern Baptist church because their theology seemed to line up with what I believed.  I talked to my sister, Nancy, about my faith because she was a Christian also. Nancy had been a Christian for much longer than I had been …
