Work in Progress: Stats (because data is addictive)

Photo credit: Amador Loureiro It’s surprising to me that I have ended up writing — and loving it (and when I say love I mean love/hate). I was never good in English class (I mention my issue with words here). Math on the other hand…Do you remember those algebra questions that took half a page…

A New Adventure in Writing

Photo by Art Lasovsky on Unsplash One of the hardest things about writing is…well, the writing part. I have finished one book. Sounds exciting right? It’s sitting quietly in a file on my desktop waiting for a time in the future when I have the stamina to look at it again. There’s a second book, half finished, also…

Back on the Radar

Feature Image credit: Jiyeon Park It’s been a while…a long while. Over the last months my thoughts have drifted to my website, then quickly veered away. Far, far away. I should be blogging more, or at least that’s what I’m told in the endless ‘how to’s’ of authoring and social media. So here I am…

I Sinned, and This is What it Looks Like

    I sinned the other day. It fits neatly in my palm. I study it. It’s red and blue, which surprises me. I expected sin to be the color of vomit or something, but nope, this one is red and blue. It’s kind of soft too, but with sharp edges. I took it to…

Why you Should Choose to be a Failure

  There is something in your heart. Perhaps it’s been there a long time, or maybe it’s new. But it’s real and it’s rich. You daydream of its fulfillment. The conversations you will have with people. The excitement that bubbles up from deep inside. But when the reality of it sits before you – it’s…

How to Pray Powerfully: Hint, it’s not Praying in ‘Earnest’

  When God first began to stir my heart for intercession I pushed back. All I knew about interceding was my perception of what a ‘prayer warrior’ was. 10 hours a day on your knees didn’t sound like something I was interested in. I knew the Bible taught that ‘earnest’ prayers like Elijah’s were powerful…

I Don’t Normally Eat Flowers, But…

“Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity” – Voltaire Under normal circumstances – I put too much butter on my toast. I like my steak medium. I bake because I like to eat what comes out of the oven. But…

Working for Yourself is not Always about Self Employment
