Finding God's Message in The Face of Murder and Suicide

Finding God's Message in The Face of Murder and Suicide

The Patriarchal Trifecta: A Tribute To My Fathers

The Patriarchal Trifecta: A Tribute To My Fathers

I’m the girl with three fathers.  This father’s day is a first, as I get to celebrate my dad, my biological father, and now my father-in-law.  I am blessed to be surrounded by men who set such a wonderful example of what it means to be selfless, what it means to be true to yourself, and what it means to follow Jesus.  This Father's Day, I have the privilege of honoring all three of these men who have loved me fiercely and taught me so much.

I went home and complained to my parents about how the other kids thought I was homeless, and I didn’t know how to answer them with kindness because the only thing I felt was anger.  I thought they were ignorant and rude.  It took me some time, and by time I mean years, but now I actually applaud the ones that asked the silly questions.  I realize now that these were the kids trying to find common ground.
