  1. Use Your Words Podcast Difficult conversations can be just that – difficult. Sometimes we are timid or don’t know the word/phrasing to use to convey the thoughts we have. Sometimes those thoughts break our brains a little bit and we may falter to explain what we are thinking – those concepts are in our brains but they haven’t found their way out yet and we are at a loss of words trying to explain these thoughts floating in our heads to others. We really do ourselves a disservice when we fail to engage in these conversations – no matter how difficult or uncomfortable they may be at times.

I am seeing something disturbing in Christian culture - people who claim to put their faith in Jesus are instead putting their hope in politicians (this trend is on both sides of the aisle) - and this is dangerous beyond degree.

This past week has shown a disturbing trend with social media and the amount of control it has over what news is and isn't allowed to be posted/shared - even from reputable news sites. This sets a bad precedent - and these sites need to be held accountable for their actions. It is no longer excusable for social media sites to say they are only hosts
