I am a Child of God

I am a Child of God

For just about 10 years, I have been singing “I Am A Child of God” to sleepy little boys. Sometimes when I sing that song, it is filled with deep emotion, but other times, I have to admit, I am merely going through the motions in the hopes that by the time I hit verse...

Stop “Spinning Your Wheels”

How can I stop “spinning my wheels”? I woke up this morning excited.  I had so many good ideas!  All morning I made lists and talked to people.  By mid-day, I had nothing much to show for my whole morning.  Ever feel like you are just “spinning your wheels” and not...

What I Learned Studying Sweat

Becoming Mulekites

Becoming Mulekites
