My younger daughter is an erupt-like-a-volcano girl, and my older daughter is a pretend-nothing-happened conflict avoider. No matter how we deal with anger, we all get angry. Some of us, though, have been sold … Continue reading »

Tough Question Monday: Why Does Bad Stuff Happen?

My daughters think Adam and Eve were the dumbest people ever to walk the planet. They had it all. Life truly was perfect, and they threw it all away for an apple. The apple couldn’t have been that good. With one bite of an apple, they changed the world they would live in and the … Continue reading »
