I See Your True Colors

by Anne Marie Owens This past weekend our daughter, Sophie, asked for sushi and a movie. And our son, Jude, was just happy to be with Sophie. So I grabbed some Tokyo Express then took them to rent a Redbox. They (Sophie) chose the movie Trolls. It looked like a colorful cartoon with a fun soundtrack, so I got it. And all was good that night until Sophie told me she was to...

Peace of Mind

You know that little bar at the bottom of the screen when you're watching ESPN?

Mother and Dad were standing together watching a small Congolese man who wore only a pair of shorts. He had scars all over his back and was acting out a story while he told it. He fell on the...

The description of the job sounded wonderful. I was given an interview the following week and the employment process began. It took two weeks to complete the process and the only thing I needed t...

An Unexpected Blessing!

by Kim Pillow As I sat patiently waiting on the event to begin, a woman came and sat beside me on the front row commenting that her husband would be coming shortly after their son's basketball game ended. It was obvious this woman had the same excitement as I did to hear our speaker. We had both arrived a couple of hours early to claim our coveted front row seats. While w...
