Following Our Star

2006 has been an amazing year for our family. Two cross-country moves, a little boy that turned three and a fantastic new job. As this year draws to close, we’re thankful. God has blessed our family with love for each other, great friends, a good home, a job I love and the promise that He

The Real St. Nicholas

Merry Christmas!? My gift to you is this great site that tells the true story of St. Nicholas.? This was a great man who is completely overshadowed by the image of a fat guy in a red suit.? His life is one we should all aspire to as it exemplifies true Christianity in his commitment

Social Baggage Discussion Board Launched

The first Social Baggage Bulletin Board (SBBB.1) sparked some interesting discussion, but ultimately ended in failure. The rhetoric turned from intelligent debate to heated arguments. Topics

Farewell Christopher Reeve

Friends and family know that I’ve been a Superman fan all my life. When I was a little kid, I had the “S-shield” pajamas. Today, I have a wonderful little collection of memorabilia from the comics and movies. I’ve even been known to wear my Superman t-shirt with a sport coat to business meetings. That
