    Live In The Present

    Both the past and future have their potential uses, one can provide precedence and the other can provide motivation. Yet, the past and future are not what we are called to dwell in, that honor is reserved for the present. I am not talking about the superficiality of a “YOLO” (You Only Live Once) lifestyle. Living in the present isn’t about rushing off and thoughtlessly partying, having casual sex, or taking part in extreme sports. Living in the present is about something much deeper, and ultimately more rewarding. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”…

One of their lesser used arguments that has proven difficult for me to rebut effectively is that of ectopic pregnancy. When I first encountered this argument I had no idea what it was, so I did some research…

    What I Saw When Working In A Public School

    I make no secret of the fact I homeschool my children, actually, I am somewhat proud of it. My kids started their homeschool careers in the early spring of 2015. However, before I began homeschooling I worked at a public elementary school (grades K-5) as a paraprofessional with special needs kids. I was employed there for nearly two school years. It is one of the most stressful, yet also rewarding, jobs I have ever had and I observed many positive things during my employment. Not everything I saw pleased me, however. During my time there I noticed several trends that I believe are quite negative in nature. As I mentioned,…
