When a Dream Goes Lackluster

PART I There was once a very hospitable Shunammite woman in the Bible. We actually don't know her name so let's call her Shuna, for short, just for the fun of it. Shunaaaaaa, baby.

Confessions of an Ex-Angry Chick

It was a stressful day. I got home, switched my gear, and went for a run. This doesn't always happen. Sometimes I just like to eat. Who's with me?!

Drop-Kick Worries

"Give it to God, girl." It was one of those things I grew up hearing. Now, I was raised knowing about Jesus but needless to say, it took me a bit to get into an authentic relationship with him.
