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.

One of the benefits of having a father who has traveled around a little bit is the stories. Unfortunately, I haven't received quite as many of them as I have hoped during my time abroad, so my dad unknowingly gave me an excellent Easter present when he sent me one recently. Many years...

I recently met with a counselor--I needed to--and it was better than I expected. I talked a lot. The counselor listened. She had questions, too, which I answered. Afterward, she pushed her chair back and gave me some solid counsel and encouragement. I took it. I can't stop thinking...
