Handling Telemarketers

You know, when the phone rings you instinctively assume , of course, it’s someone you know, like your spouse, or a member of the Church or whomever. It’s always a disappointment, to say the least, when the caller is a telemarketer trying to sell you something or take an absurd survey, political or otherwise. If […]

Presidential Debate: “Eye of the Sparrow”

It’s Friday and I’m still getting acclimated to being back from a whirlwind trip, catching up on outside chores and running the farm. So, enjoy this ‘interpretation’ of the first presidential debate.

My Favorite Animal

“Our teacher asked what my favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.” She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my […]

Do You Know What Your Child Is Doing?


Obama 2012

What It Takes to Have A “Mega-Church”

Want to be in a Mega-Church? Want to start one? Want to know how to function like a Mega-Church? Here are 666 ways. (Ooops my 6 key stuck, sorry, I meant: 6 ways.) 1. Insist on a lack of specificity. Can we be honest here? The more specific you are with doctrine, the more detailed […]
