A few people have asked exactly what I am studying in my current OT class, and wanted to know a few details, so I decided to write about it where I can give a more detailed explanation than I could through a text message. Last night I spent the majority of my time studying in... Continue Reading →
The Day I Became a Murderer
Yes, the title is shocking, but it is true. Last year, I took a precious life. I have suffered for it every day since, until the day I wrote this blog. That day, I realized that my experience was intended by God for 2 reasons: 1) to show me how we can hurt others with... Continue Reading →
How I Learned to Trust His Plan
This is going to be quite long. Don't say I didn't warn you. I was going to post it in multiple parts but I personally hate "to be continued" things, so I just decided to do it all at once. Part 1: The Elderly: A Background I've always loved elderly people and the wisdom they... Continue Reading →
