Messiah Prophesied: A Child is Born

I love this time of year: Christmas lights, get-togethers, hot chocolate; but my appreciation has grown as I've gotten older. Like most children, I was enamored with all the presents. I knew Christmas was about more, but it's difficult to see past the material, especially as a child. As I think on the reason for... Continue Reading →

True Love

I've seen several articles this week about TLC cutting ties with Derick Dillard (Jill Dillard's husband from Counting On). Twitter comments were cited where he verbally attacked Jazz Jennings.

Personality and the Bible (And 5 Tips for Both Types)

Personality is so interesting to me. Why do people do what they do? This interest has helped me a lot in relationships. The first year Randy and I were married I remember having a conversation about something - I can't remember what - and I distinctly remember my response to what he said: "I can't...

Fighting for Innocence

Imagine you're trapped. A world of drugs, sex, exploitation, violence, degradation, long labor-filled days, and despair is your reality. You crave freedom, but you don't see a way out. What's more, you don't think anyone cares. For us, this kind of world is unimaginable, but it's horrifically unavoidable for the millions of men, women, and... Continue Reading →

Ramblings: Go for it!

This week's post has given me fits. Sometimes that happens. I'll have my content plan worked out (mostly), but when it comes to writing it ... chirp chirp, chirp chirp. I've learned this usually means I should move on to something else. I've wanted to incorporate some different topics on HISsparrowBlog; there's so much more... Continue Reading →
