Coronavirus, and the World Shifts

I know that every single person reading this has already been affected by the coronavirus, whether you’ve been dodging the toilet paper brawls at Costco or are homeschooling your kids for the first time.

The Freedom of Obedience (As Featured in The Cry)

I have something to confess. Obedience is a hard word for me. The word conjures up feelings of being controlled; of dutifully doing something that I don’t want to do. To me it can imply sacrifice and giving up my own wants and desires for the sake of something or someone else. It can feel […]
