    Devaluing Life

    Gone are the days of abortion advocates claiming that what is being destroyed by an abortion is just a “clump of cells.” There can be no more arguing about the “viability” of an unborn baby’s life. Democrats just voted against legislation that would have protected infants born alive after an attempted abortion. A baby, living, breathing outside the womb can…

    True Humility

    There is no denying that the idea of humbling ourselves often puts a bad taste in our mouths. We like to think we are pretty good people and that we are usually right. When I stop to consider this, something about it seems odd to me. Here I am, nothing special by secular standards, finding it difficult to humble myself…

    March For Life

    Compromise Not Required

    I cannot count how many times compromise has been preached to me through a movie, television show, song, or book. Growing up in public school, teachers constantly told me that compromise was always the best option. It seems people consider compromise to be the duct tape of relational problems, capable of fixing anything. Is it really, though? Is compromise always…

    Using Your Talents And Skills For Others

    I recently helped my sister move some furniture out of her apartment and it got me thinking about how we use our talents. Granted, carrying heavy and awkward things around may not require much talent. Yet, nonetheless, it got me thinking about it. What would be the benefit to our society if we all used our talents more for others…

    Time Outdoors Can Boost Health

    In our society today, many jobs require us to keep our butts in swivel chairs as we work beneath fluorescent lights. A large portion of these jobs demand the use of a computer as well. This keeps our eyes firmly glued to a screen and our wrists perched on a keyboard for long periods of time. Considering the average person…

    Gluttony, It Isn’t Just About Eating

    When I think of gluttony, I nearly always think of people eating too much. Even the 1995 movie, Seven, depicts gluttony in this way. Yet, it isn’t just about eating too much. In reality we can be gluttons regarding anything. The phrase, “glutton for punishment” helps to remind us of this fact. There are a few specific areas that I…
