No hashtag needed

I’ve fallen prey. I cannot lie. I’ve used hashtags in my posts on Instagram and Facebook. It’s amazing how our culture influences us and changes us. I don’t think I could have told you what a #hashtag was in 2009, when I came back home after twenty years abroad; yet now they seem to move … More No hashtag needed

Brain Food

Though my body leans toward obesity, my brain has been malnourished. This past weekend, I decided to do something about it — I went to an apologetics conference.
