Will You Lose Your Job Because of Facebook?

This is not about your indiscretions which might show up in human resources. Yes, those are important, but this is about the very existence of the company you work for.

A $2 a mile load pays more than $12.50 a mile load?

Why does Abe Lincoln Look So Grim?

This is a rest stop along I-80 near Laramie, Wyoming which serves to commemorate the Lincoln Highway, which, the displays say, crossed the US from Times Square to San Francisco.

Bringing Light, Casting Shadows: A Review of Lisa Grace’s Angel in the Shadows

Many friends and blog readers may be offended that I have read and am reviewing a book sometimes classified as "Christian Horror." Calling it an oxymoron or worse, some people say horror has no place in Christianity. What is appropriate to write and call Christian is a big area of disagreement. Workshops, seminars and conferences …

THE POWER IN A WATERMELON SEED Guest Blog by Ada Brownell

Daddy grew watermelons in his garden—Black Diamond Watermelons— gorilla sized, not the striped tabby-kitty varieties we see in stores now. A watermelon is a wondrous thing—a vegetable, experts say. Daddy plopped seeds about the size of my pinky fingernail into the ground and then irrigated the rows. Botanists tell me when you plant a watermelon, …

Through the Windshield 3

Montana has the largest surface area (by measuring all the mountain area) of the 48 contiguous states. It's filled with bumper stickers like "My state is bigger than your state." Yet small states like Arkansas have more roads for trucks than Montana. So last year when we drove from North Dakota west across central Montana …

Righting Sew Reel Ayes Reed Passed Yore Tie Till

I started to "meet" many modern authors through the joys of Internet groups for authors, readers and writers. So I started to read their books.

A Christian Continuum

The name or title “Q” is known to geeks and many others as the godlike creature in Star Trek the Next Generation. He was part of something called the “Q Continuum,” a race of fellow godlike beings who apparently liked being aloof and distant from mankind. This Q claimed he had benevolent feelings for humanity …

“I’m Going Home.”

A review of Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers Perhaps I was the only remaining Christian female on the planet who had not read this book. The parallels to both the biblical book of Hosea and a human’s relationship to God are beautiful and valuable. It is almost a perfect allegory of the rocky relationship we …

So, What Is A Baptist?

"The Bible alone is our absolute rule of Faith and Practice." Ever heard this before? Though many things define a Baptist, this is good place to start.
