Taking a Stand

When I see injustice in our society, quite often I get overwhelmed, wanting to make an impact … a difference … not knowing what to do or where to turn.  Can you relate?  Recently, there have been nationwide protests led by student groups supporting improved gun...

A Supreme Life

I was on a family vacation last week when I learned of the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.  Being unashamedly pro-life and a conservative, I knew immediately how his passing would affect the balance of power in the Supreme Court.  Since then I’ve...

Heartache & Baby Loss

Our guest blogger this week is Casey Wiegand.  She has a large following on her own blog, and after reading this piece, I understand why.  I’m sure there are many in our audience who will relate to today’s subject.  I commend Casey for helping so many find...
