PSA: Feelings don’t lie. Thoughts do

Hola! So the other day, I popped a post up about Mental Health Awareness Day – a day I was unaware of. #irony! (It was on my Facebook and Insta pages, so if you haven’t followed them – do that!) But in response to this, I’ve had some lovely contact and it got me thinking…

What to do if You or Someone You Love is in a Cult

Hey there world, This series has been somewhat of a surprise to me – not in terms of content, but in terms of readership. Ordinarily, I would have gone off into other topics again by now, but due to the fact that this has been picked up by another blog, I need to finish it where…

8 Key Characteristics of Cults

Hello again! This is the second in a series on what is and isn’t a cult. Its a hot topic, a hurtful topic for some and one that I’ve only written because of the overwhelming amount of questions I’ve, well, avoided. Look after yourself as you read. Remember this isn’t about me branding a group…

How Do I Know If I’m in a Cult?

Hey there friend. I hope its morbid curiosity that helped you find this blog piece. I hope its not that you, a friend or family member is questioning whether a group you are involved in is a cult. Because that is hard stuff. If it’s the latter, you have my sympathy. This piece is not…

Thank You, Dear Reader

This blog is a fledgling blog. I’ve got big plans for it, because I am the kind of person who thinks big thoughts and thinks them best on paper (or screen). But I wanted to say thanks. I’ve barely promoted this blog, as I’m still shaking off some mental restrictions on my ability to say…

Red Letter Christianity

“There’s nothing simple about simple” is a quote I read today. It was a quote from a potter named Eric Landon, featured on Instagram making some genius “simple” (AKA clean-lined genius artworks/pottery things I’m not even stylish enough to comment on). He was talking about the pottery, but oh gosh he could be talking about…

The Anti-Motivational Post

Pardon me, dear friends, for my step outside of the norm here. Its just that recently, the Facebook overlords seem to have decided that I need motivation. They are advertising *all* the motivational speakers at me. And its got on my goat a little bit. (What even does that figure of speech mean? Anyway…)  I’ve…

Hello New Followers!

Good afternoon WordPress world, Yesterday, I finally shared a post I’d been really nervous about writing, and even more nervous about publishing to the big bad world of social media. I was expecting to lose followers, because it represented a big change of stance for me. But its also a topic I feel very strongly…

Open Theism – Fact or Fallacy?

I read a term today I’d never heard of before – upon reading its definition, I should have heard of it. Why? Because as a millennial Christian, its the form of faith presented most often to me. It is Open Theism. Although its a newbie to me, I thought I’d flag it here for a couple of…

These, the Hill’s I’ll Die On

Afternoon, from my sunny corner of the world. I had planned on my next blog piece being on the late, great Billy Graham, but its taking me longer than planned to formulate my thoughts on the tougher aspects of the piece. So I’m side-stepping that one for a moment. It occurred to me that before…
