Raising Arrows: “Like Arrows” Movie Review

Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one's youth. -Psalm 127:4 If you follow Brainfoggles on Facebook, last night I posted I was watching a pre-screening of the new FamilyLife movie, Like Arrows. I was so moved by the movie I wanted to immediately hop over here to share my thoughts, but my own little arrows had other plans and needed my full attention. Throughout the day today, my thoughts have returned to specific parts of the movie that really reached me.

The Beginner’s Bible Review & Giveaway #TheBeginnersBible #FlyBy

The hustle and bustle of Christmas is over, and this year I am a little sad to see it go. I feel like I didn't really enjoy the holiday as much as in past years because it flew by way too fast.

Roe V Wade and my Libido

This week marks the 41st anniversary of the landmark case Roe V Wade, which in laymen’s terms legalized abortion in the United States. This same week, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) spoke at the Republican National Committee winter meeting, calling into question government funded birth control and the inability of women to control their libidos. Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women. That's not a war on them. It's a war for them. And if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless … [Read more...]

How to Live in the Moment #DontSweatAdventure

Along my journey with the Universal Women, we are on Chapter 10 of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff which focuses on how to live in the moment. As literate as I can be, all I can say is, “Wow!” because this is exactly what I need. Right now. I’m a worrier by nature with the disorder of Generalized Anxiety written all over my medical chart. Anxiety runs in my family and it’s been with me since I was a child. Medications and counseling help me a great deal. And so does looking at life in a new way. Chapter 10, Learn to Live in the Present Moment is one of the tools I can use. As I become older … [Read more...]
