It has been two months and 17 days since I last wrote. There have been many days in that time frame where I had my computer lying on my lap while I stared blankly at my word document and watched the space bar flicker…If only words would come to my finger tips.

I recently saw the movie “The Giver.” The story is about a seemingly perfect community where “sameness” is prized above anything else. In this world, what people see is drained of all color (literally), individuality is erased, every move is monitored, and the power of choice has disappeared. Without pain there is no sadness. Without passion there is no conflict. … Read More

Do you feel trapped in a habitual sin that you just can’t seem to kick?
