We Can Tell God The Truth

"We can tell God the truth." What does that even mean? When I think of my daughter, I wouldn't want her to give me a canned answer when she is scared or trying to find her way. I'd want to talk with her about it, so we could peel back the petals together.   I think...

There Is Hope For Forever

I remember 911. My investment class was abruptly canceled and the nation sat glued to our television sets as we watched how life can change, how history can change in seconds, and it all can make us feel so helplessly out of control.  Out of control. It's likely how...

What Is Your Yes?
