If you ask anyone who knows anything about yours truly, they’d probably give you one of three answers: firstly, that I’ve got a loud and colorful personality; two, that I am 100% in love with Jesus; and three, that I was born to write. A runner up answer would be that I have some of the most unruly...
I’ve mentioned before that if I were pressed to choose a western to watch, it’d be a Clint Eastwood one – specifically, The Outlaw Josey Wales. What that says about me as a person, I haven’t quite figured out yet. Anyway, back to my point – with a renown acting and directing repertoire, it’s no...
I know this week was supposed to be a movie review, but the christening of a new year, in a way, demands a redetermination of focus. That in mind, we’ll resume reviewing a movie next week, as I’ll fill this week’s page space with an end of the year muse. Having holidays on a Tuesday can make the...
By the time many of you will read this, Christmas will have wrapped up like a present with a nice little bow on top. Or, if you’re like me, holiday plans stretch all the way into the New Year for many of us, and you’ve got another few parties on your calendar, yet. I am pleased and encouraged in...

I had every intention of cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year with my mom. However, intentions don’t necessarily translate into definite action, and on the morning of last Thursday, I can say with some embarrassment that this sleeping beauty didn’t get herself out of bed until well after 9:30 a.m...
In the midst of an insanely busy weekend, my mother and I managed to squeeze some time into our schedule to see the modern twist on Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch.” A beloved classic in our household, the 1966 “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is a 26-minute feature that gets us rolling every time. We may...
With elections (which I can’t talk about right now, lest I say something I’ll regret) well behind us and the snow finally here, it’s safe to say that winter is upon us. The thought echoes, affirmed with all the Christmas decorations popping up all over department stores, trying to give Thanksgiving...
