I've written about my experiences in church in Jacksonville before. It was a reflection of what the church was like growing up as an outsider. Sadly, things haven't changed a whole lot now that I'm an adult and I'm...
Born in 1983, I’m barely what they would classify as a Millennial or GenY. We grew up with electronics, America Online, and later demons like social media. We receive the most marketing attention, are ethnically diverse, and said to...
I’ve made my posts about bullies. Let this post be about thanking those individuals. To catch up, I walked up on a scene, was videotaped, and called a whale. Old news. It’s easy to bully when you hide behind a keyboard,...
