The matter of loving all
It started with a refrigerator. Four days and nights was the amount of time my two youngest sons, David, Joe and I had booked for a hotel stay in Fargo, while we attended musical theatre productions and connected with friends. We could not afford to dine out the entire time, so a...

Spreading the gospel through agriculture

Column: It's not easy being green
About seven years ago I never really ate breakfast--unless you counted the Diet Coke and chips. I ate what I wanted when I wanted. At age 41, standing in my kitchen while eating and drinking what I pleased, I remember thinking: "I feel so great! I wonder how long I will be able to...

Column: Growing up with Jesus
I hate this about myself. It's my hair. I keep cutting it. Honestly, I can say that, in our wee small town of 7,000, I know every hair stylist in every salon and they know me. Karley cuts hair--she just moved into town--and she and I have become fast friends. I obsess. I want change...

Column: Love serves
My feet hurt. I say that almost every day because I'm usually on them for at least five hours or more with minimal down time. I am a waitress at Barajas Mexican Bar and Grill where all servers bartend, too. It's my summer job--or perhaps it's for a longer season--but it's a good fit...

Column: Learning not to be perfect
Back in my camp days, my camp friends could sort of see I was bit wound up, a bit of a perfectionist. Several of them struggled with that too, but they were much better at dealing it with than I was. Their favorite bible verse was, "But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you,...

Column: On being popular
I love being liked and I think it's safe to say I am not in the minority. Social media alone reveals that a lot of time and effort goes into managing an image that makes you irresistible, adorable, fun, wise and witty, on-trend and authentic.

Column: Orange is the new blessing
I had to wear orange. I like the color; it's in my color wheel as a flattering wardrobe choice. An orange jail jumpsuit, however, was never a choice for me. Instead, it was a consequence for a bad choice. I made a mistake. Who doesn't? I'm a sinner. We're all sinners.

Column: On having faith
There are lots of things in life that are illogical and take a bit of believing in. We believe that people will change their lives for the better and we hope that, against all the odds, our sports teams will pull through and win--which happens sometimes. We hope that things will always...
