The Front Line in the Gender Wars – “The gender revolution will not be televised. Why? Because it is taking place in your local public bathroom.” A children’s bathroom, that is.

True Greatness Never Goes Viral – This is a sweet tribute to a godly man. “Despite his lack of public fame, my grandpa was truly great in God’s eyes. That’s the funny thing about true, biblical greatness. Biblical greatness almost never goes viral, because biblical greatness almost always involves doing things no one ever sees.”
