What is your idea of love?

Often when we think of love, we think of our friends and family, maybe happy moments, good times we had with them. Perhaps some we have not seen for a long time, and we think how happy we will be when we meet them again. Maybe we think of the...

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil….” - Isaiah 5:20

Words, the basis of language. As Ayn Rand described them, a code of symbols that convert concepts into concretes. Language, the structuring of those words so that theoretical or purely mental ideas become...

Just like a muscle, our soul and our mind can atrophy. Atrophy is the body adjusting to inactivity. It is the body adapting to weakness. Human beings are strange creatures, the most unique among God's, as we were created to live in two worlds. And so we must exercise t...

The National Anthem began to play. It was over 13 years ago at a New York Yankees baseball game and I was chowing down on my ice cream. My grandpa looked over at me, snapped his fingers and motioned to stand and put my hand on my heart. I didn’t...

We live on the surface, floating on a vast ocean. We are desperate to stay afloat. We flail our limbs wildly in an attempt to keep our heads above water. We grasp at every piece of driftwood or debris that comes our way, promising to help us in...

 A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

by Bob Dylan

Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?

As I count down the days until June 15, so many emotions creep up on me—excitement, fear, nervousness. June 15 is my graduation day, graduation from high school and I absolutely cannot wait. But I also can’t help but be scared of what’s to come, what’s to happen after...

“You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”

When Plato said this, he captured one of the profound truths of human nature:  

When we are relaxed, we reveal who we truly are.

We are souls enslaved by fear. Thick iron clad walls stand between us and what we can be and do in this life on our path to God. But we are governed by fear. We are governed by what we have ruled impossible for us to do. We live lives of softness and comfort. Lives tha...

The duty of raising children falls to many of us during our lives. I am currently blessed with that responsibility; it is quite the adventure. Of all the things I notice about my children, I...
