  • Grace defined, tattoo designed

    If I had to choose just one favorite book of the Bible, I would choose Romans, chock full of theology, which I love.
    And if I had to choose just one favorite chapter in all of Romans, hands down it would be chapter 8.
    And if I could choose only one verse in chapter 8 to tattoo across my shoulder, it has to be verse 1: “Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

  • Why church?

    Scattered throughout any community are tiny, struggling churches.
    Sometimes they’re invisible. If you blink while driving past them you’ll miss them. Or they’re eyesores — run down, weather worn.
    In my 20 years covering local religion for the newspaper, I’ve gotten to know the people at some of these little churches.
    I’ve attended their services and could count the people in the pews with two hands and not need a third.

  • Missing out on something wonderful

    A few weeks ago, a 4.1 earthquake hit Yorba Linda, Calif., the town where I spent my teen years growing up and near where some of my family still lives.
    My niece, Jennifer, was in the shower when the quake hit and things started shaking.
    In all the years I lived in California that was among my top 10 greatest fears — to be in the shower and have an earthquake hit and be buried in a pile of debris while naked or in some stage of undress.
    I even named my fear“They’llFindMeNakedaphobia.”

  • Shall we brag?

    One of my favorite stories is the one where my friend Mike announced that he had given up pride for Lent.
    He was so proud of his decision, couldn’t wait to start. Just knew he’d nail it.
    That was about seven or so years ago and we still laugh about it.

  • Men, tongues, words and wounds

    In my (albeit feeble) defense, I had just come from undergoing a medical test done under sedation, which may or may not have loosened my tongue. Or maybe it was because I hadn’t eaten in 24 hours and hunger affected my brain.
    Whatever the reason, I said something that embarrassed my husband.
    We had stopped at a local restaurant for a burger. I ordered the thickest, beefiest, cheesiest burger on the menu, plus fries, and my husband ordered a veggie burger and a salad.
