Why I don’t relate to family: More confessions of the ex-Catholic

So I will admit it...I don't relate to a lot of my family. Maybe a few on my dad's side and I will talk to whomever on my mom's side that wants to talk to me but that's about it. This has weighed heavily on my mind lately because it seems the only time I… Continue reading Why I don’t relate to family: More confessions of the ex-Catholic

When you lose your religion…

I know what you are thinking, does that title pertain to literally giving up on religion? Nope. "Losing your religion" is an old Southern US expression for losing one's temper. Most people have heard the expression "Losing my religion" from the song by R.E.M and while the song talks more about lost love, it's only… Continue reading When you lose your religion…

The holy war within Christianity

Mother’s Day: Why is it such a big deal?

So today is Mother's Day in America and truth is I never really was a huge fan of this holiday but I have my reasons. It's not that I hate it, I just don't like it too much. It's mostly because of the way it is celebrated. Because of issues in my own life, Mother's… Continue reading Mother’s Day: Why is it such a big deal?

Volunteering has no religion

This is a blog I have been wanting to do for a while and since this week is National Volunteer Week (yes, it's a thing), I figure why not do it now. Basically, I'm going to talk about volunteer work and religion. Buckle up, kids...this is going to be a bumpy ride. Now I have… Continue reading Volunteering has no religion
