Hey ya’ll! I was invited to write about my college days in WMU. Hope you enjoy every bit of it as I did. Remember to always have fun no matter what and you’ll see what I mean in a minute. I wasn’t lying to say that it took me a bowl and a couple pieces of Post-it … Continue reading

Abs Like Jesus: What am I doing here?

It seems that, while taking on a bad habit is human nature, starting a good habit is hard to do. It’s like New Year’s resolutions. Three weeks, or even three days, into this new plan that you were completely dedicated to at 12:05 am on January 1st, is now boring, hard to fit into your … Continue reading

One year ago Hank Green and Bernie Su dared to go where no other video blog had gone before. These producers introduced a hundred-year-old novel to a generation of YouTubers. “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” updated the classic Pride and Prejudice and converted it into 100 videos, each lasting approximately five minutes. Lizzie Bennet becomes a graduate … Continue reading


Hell Hath No Fury: Eve

There are few narratives as powerfully written as the Bible, but sometimes I’m left wanting for more details of certain accounts.

Alice in Wonderland Devotional, Day 3

It’s that time again! It’s time for another recap of our Tangible Kingdom Wonderland experience. Today you’ll need a piece of hard candy (preferably from a tin like this) and some time and space to meander (perhaps indoors since Winter has laid his blanket upon us again). The Caucus-Race At one point in Alice’s journey, … Continue reading

Is anyone else as excited as I am for The Great Gatsby release in May? I’m personally looking forward to finally seeing besties Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in a film together. If I were still teaching English, I would be forever grateful to Baz Luhrmann for reviving the popularity of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel. For … Continue reading

The Alice in Wonderland Devotional, Day 2

Well, we’re back from Spring Break so I thought I’d bring you the content of another station I had for our Alice in Wonderland experience.
