So You Want to See Fifty Shades of Grey . . . But You’re a Christian

 

Fifty Shades of GreyClarksville, TN – It’s finally here: opening weekend for Fifty Shades of Grey, “the hotly anticipated film adaptation of the bestselling book that has become a global phenomenon” (Fandango).

I confess that I didn’t want to write this post, but as opening weekend crept closer and closer, it became more and more obvious that a lot of the folks who will be standing in line to see this film are Christians. And I can’t keep silent about that. Therefore, this post is for believers (and not just women; according to MovieTickets.com, 80 percent of Valentine’s Day tickets are being purchased by couples).

Fifty Shades of Grey opens at theaters Valentine's Day weekend.

Feeling Small in the World Today?

 

Kris Wolfe“When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.
You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet:”

~Psalm 8:3-6

Bible Reading Tips for Adult “Beginners”

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – I was late to the party. I was in my 30s before I started reading the Bible. I mean, I had touched them here and there, even opened them once or twice, and had somehow memorized the 23rd Psalm from hearing people speak it at funerals or in movies. So basically, I knew nothing.

I have been going to church weekly for about 7 years. And about three years ago, I got the calling to go to grad school to learn how to counsel people biblically. I have always been an adviser and helper. But I wanted to know how to help people in a more meaningful, less self-serving (for me and for them) way.

Jesus was Born Christmas Day

 

Written by Dinah Maria Mulock

Jesus in the mangerGod rest ye, merry gentlemen; let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day.

The dawn rose red o’er Bethlehem, the stars shone through the gray,
When Jesus Christ, our Saviour, was born on Christmas-day. «Read the rest of this article»


The Itty Bitty Flesh Eating Sin

 

Women behind mask.

Clarksville, TN – When I started blogging about my life and “spiritual journey” a few years ago, writing came easily for me. I had just come through a huge awakening and period of major change in my life. I had come a long way in my attitudes and behavior in a short period of time, and I needed an outlet to share my recovery and new-found happiness.

As the years have gone on, I have noticed 2 things: the first is that my writing, and the topics of my blogs have matured quite a bit. The second thing I have noticed is that I write less often and struggle to refine my thoughts more. «Read the rest of this article»


2000 “Friends” But Feeling Alone?

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – You probably don’t know this about me but I lived in low-income housing of Cleveland, Ohio when I was a small child.

I didn’t feel poor. I don’t remember anyone complaining about not having enough. I do remember lots of bologna, egg noodles and liver. Ketchup was our only condiment. I also remember never throwing away antibiotics until every last drop was gone even though the instructions clearly stated that you should finish and discard.

But mostly, I remember my neighbors. They were like family. «Read the rest of this article»




Why Doesn’t God Perform Miracles Anymore?

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – One of my boys asked me recently, “Why doesn’t God perform miracles anymore?’

It was a good question…a deep question. It’s the kind of question that let’s you know your kid is really thinking about God. It’s also the kind of question that causes pause, makes you think, and cranks your mental processing up a notch.

We talked about miracles for a while, why God performed miracles like curing illness, reviving people from the dead, parting the sea.

Help! I Married a Viking!

 

Prove It Clarksville: Kenny YorkClarksville, TN – The past few days have been absolutely nuts. For those of you who haven’t heard, my husband (Kenny York) is spending two weeks as a homeless man in order to give a voice and face to an invisible population: the homeless of Clarksville, TN.

Back in May, when he told me of his plan, I was a little rattled—but not surprised. This is who he is, and I made up my mind before I married him that I wasn’t going to squelch the part of him that’s not happy unless he’s in the middle of the fray.

9 Signs You Might be “Settling”

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Dating is gross. I mean, it’s fun meeting new people, having a reason for a new outfit, a new way to style your hair, and a pretty new lip-gloss, but other than that, dating is just not fun for a lot of people. While the majority of women would like to be in a committed relationship, dating around to find the right guy, and being let down over and over again is simply not enjoyable.

The dating process, or more precisely, the selection process is daunting and exhausting, and many of us run from this prickly ambiguity into any relationship that is, at least, committed or promising; translation: better than nothing. «Read the rest of this article»
