I Forgot Who was Lying in the Manger

A Christmas Poem

By: Juliandra Durkin It flew in so fast, it’s that time of the year… Tinsel, music, decorations, and good cheer. The tree is up, the lights are tangled. Stop little brother! Now I’m getting strangled. Mom! He pushed me and is pulling my hair. Hunny, be a lady, you’re acting like a bear. But I… But he… I don’t even LIKE Christmas tress! The stockings...

Strong Participant

  By: Kristina Fertala The unknown… It’s a deep dark hole, one that quickly forms when we allow ourselves to sit and ponder over it.

Attention

by Kristina Fertala We all have those days… the ones when our minds are easily distracted and we can’t seem to focus on the tasks at hand. Attention- a resource of limit capacity with a flexible supply. What I mean by this is that we have a limit to the amount of attention we posses, however, that attention may be allocated (or distributed) in a...

Going Up

By Erin Weidemann When I was little, I always enjoyed being able to visit my mom at the office building where she worked. Her office was up on the top floor of a medical center and I remember being so excited to walk into that building on the ground floor and wait for the elevator. The doors would open, and Dad would say, “Okay. We...

Just Hold Still

by Erin Weidemann  Despite my best efforts, my baby girl refuses to snuggle with me. I get it. She’s 13 months old, and she’s just figured out that she can fast walk, reach the tops of tables, and open and close doors and drawers. Game on. To her, life just got pretty exciting, and holding still long enough for me to get a cuddle in...

HerStory: Casey Groff

By: Casey Groff    As a somewhat naïve young woman I took the world by storm upon graduating with many accolades behind my name- from my degrees, to my volunteer experience in churches, universities and non-profits.

Our Safe Haven

by Jhoana Romero        Do you ever feel like you’re alone? Or maybe that this time you won’t get through the trials and bad situations? Or that there is no one to keep you safe?

No Such Thing As Detours

by Katherine Wolf I imagine for most of us there are fairly straightforward pictures in our heads about what our lives will look like and about who we will become. It seems these pictures are always of wonderful things that happen at exactly the right time and make oh-so much sense. I imagine when something happens that is not inside the four corners of that...
