Doggy day care gone wrong

on Tuesday, 11 September 2018. Posted in Columns, Opinions

I have mentioned my cats in the past. I have two Siamese cats, Reese and Kit. They are 1 and 4 respectively. I have always been more of a cat person rather than a dog person. It’s not that I don’t like dogs. I think dogs are cute and sometimes they are fu

How old are you now?

on Wednesday, 05 September 2018. Posted in Columns, Opinions

This week’s edition actually comes out on my birthday. On September the 5th some twenty-four years ago my mother spent 12 hours in labor for her first child. Appropriately enough I was born a mere 45 minutes after midnight on Labor Day. I was born at 6 po

Intercession is the key

on Tuesday, 28 August 2018. Posted in Opinions

Often times we assume that intercession is done by those we consider more seasoned in the gospel. Individually we pray when we are in need or if we may face adversity, but when it comes to praying for the masses and standing in the gap, we look to the gen

on Tuesday, 28 August 2018. Posted in Opinions

Beware of bullying this school year

on Tuesday, 21 August 2018. Posted in Columns, Opinions

A cure for writer’s block - writing it out

on Tuesday, 14 August 2018. Posted in Columns, Opinions

Sometimes I get serious writer’s block. I end up sitting at my computer screen just staring at the blank document hoping and waiting for something to pop into my head to write about. For some reason this week seems to be especially difficult for me. As I

Bread crumbs

on Tuesday, 07 August 2018. Posted in Opinions

Recently we heard about the boys’ soccer team and their coach in Thailand that were stuck in a cave after wandering in on an impromptu field trip. I couldn’t even imagine the thoughts of the parents and family members waiting for their rescue. In the begi

on Tuesday, 07 August 2018. Posted in Columns, Opinions
