My Faith: Returning to church, despite my doubts

My Faith: Returning to church, despite my doubts

Very well-written…and I imagine that at some point or another, everyone has been somewhere in the journey that she describes.

It Just Isn’t That Simple

It Just Isn’t That Simple

Remember those days when a box and some sticks were all that you needed to be entertained for hours? When your greatest fear was that you were having spinach for dinner? And answers like this actually got you an A? Man, those were the days. And things were so black and white. Don’t steal. Don’t […]

Life and Death

Life and Death

Very rarely do I ever hear a physician say that they were really glad that they went through the process of becoming one. In fact, 9 times out of 10 I hear the opposite. I hear statements of regret—for not being with family, for a failed marriage, for a squelched life, for a loss of […]

It is Finished.

It is Finished.

It is finished. Year one of medical school is over…along with year one of motherhood. Talk about Bittersweet at its finest. First things first. Cheese sticks and Dr. Pepper from Sonic (because that’s how I roll). Now that I’m sitting on my couch—in a completely quiet house—you would think that I would be running around […]

To Be Known

To Be Known

“Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I […]

Finals Start in 9 Hours…

Finals Start in 9 Hours…

And I had to perform my first rectal exam today. What an interesting start to finals week. (No worries, I’m not spending a lot of time blogging right now- though it would be a very nice distraction…) I don’t remember where this is from, so don’t give me credit for such awesomeness. Haha apparently I […]

The Personhood Act- What are Your Thoughts?

The Personhood Act- What are Your Thoughts?

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about this lately. I haven’t quite decided whether to tackle it or not…I also have no idea HOW I would quite put it out there either… So first, I’m going to see if it’s even worth writing about (because I would put some time and effort into this…) […]

Don’t Stop Now

Don’t Stop Now

“And there came a voice out from within heaven, ‘You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.’ Immediately, the Holy Spirit from within drove Him out into the wilderness. And he stayed…forty days, being all the while tempted by Satan; and He was with wild beasts, and the angels ministered to Him […]

Do It Anyway

Do It Anyway

I couldn’t really think of anything to say today. When that happens, there is usually something that someone else has said that needs to be said again, and I should stop rambling–kind of like the whole “80-20 Rule“. (Get used to me saying redundant things like that, because I love it.) Most of you have […]

We All Have a Cause…

We All Have a Cause…

This post does have rules. (It’s my blog. I can do what I want.) 1. If you break it you buy it. If you read it, you interact with it. 2. If you don’t plan to participate, do not continue reading, do no pass go, do not collect $200. We all have a cause. We […]
