"May I see your phone for a minute?" His request came only minutes after my daughter's to which I replied the same, "Not now, I'm listening to something." It was possibly a full minute before my son asked the same question again. This time I said, "Just wait. Kayla asked first anyway. Considering that she... Continue Reading →
Grace for the Gay Life
"I'm just letting you know that if I get suspended from school on Tuesday, it's for a good reason."
