Unwrapping #MeToo with grace
No matter our age, if we're honest there's this letdown that comes after all the gifts are unwrapped at Christmastime. Isn't the anticipation of actually giving and receiving a gift, the experience of it all, that brings us the greatest joy? I think the same sort of letdown happens...

A lesson on faith and Vikings fandom
Vikings fans are the most stubbornly loyal fans. I have never seen them give up faith, even when that faith has been tested, over and over again. They also are great sports — when they won against the Saints, they raised over $200,000 for the charity of the Saints' injured punter,...

Christmas is about love, no matter where in the world you are
For most of my life, I have celebrated Christmas in one part of the world. My Minnesotan Christmas was always something I looked forward to. I loved getting involved with the church on Christmas day, having snow, and the quirky traditions that my family developed over the years.

Focus on 'God and the good things' during troubling times
To the people of my generation (Generation Z), this age seems like a bit of a hopeless one. The political situation of the United States is, well, embarrassing, to say the least. Climate change has started to show its effects, and they aren't pretty — this year's hurricane season...

It's time to leave my path for God's
There are a million different worldly desires on my mind at any given point in the day. Throughout my life, I have struggled a bit with making sense of things. One thing that I have had to work on a lot is deciding if things are worth working on unrelentlessly or letting go.

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...
