The Proverbs 31 Woman (Part 2): A Biography – “She is the great Woman of Valor. She is the virtuous Wife of Noble Character. Her children rise up and call her blessed, and her husband praises her. Her outfits are fabulous! She’s rockin’ all the jewel-tones — ruby, purple, scarlet — colors I could never pull off in my own wardrobe. I’m more of a pastels kinda girl (my fair complexion). But even all her outer beauty is nothing compared to her strength and dignity, her unmatched excellence. We all know she is pin-perfect. But who is she, really? In this article we are going to dig deep into context and unearth the beautiful truth about the Proverbs 31 woman.”

Judge Dread – “There are serious errors of fact with this account which make the comparison to the case of Kim Davis most egregious and frankly mischievous. First, the Commission insists that Judge Neely cannot remain a municipal judge. This is incorrect. Municipal judges are not actually allowed to solemnize marriages so Neely’s views on that subject are irrelevant to her ability to perform the job. Second, as a circuit court magistrate, Judge Neely has discretion when it comes to solemnizing marriages.”

Why Christians Shouldn’t Use Uber – “Okay, the headline is meant more to get your attention than it is a command. I have personally never used Uber, and have no qualms against them. I am sure there are lovely people who drive for Uber or Lyft, or any other rideshare program for that matter. I am also certain there are wonderful opportunities for evangelism when you sign up to drive for such a company. Really this post has nothing to do with Uber. Honestly, I created a decoy to tell you why over the last few months, I have a new love for the church, both local and universal… and yes, Uber plays a small part.”

Conscripted for Life, Not War: Why the Draft is Wrong for Women – “I watched the latest Republican Presidential debate with usual dutifulness. I want to be informed, I want to understand the candidates, and I want to play the small part God’s given me in this process, but as this was not the first one, I didn’t expect anything revelatory. Imagine my shock as I listened to not one, but three, so-called conservative candidates vigorously support selective service–including combat—for women, even referencing the importance of equality for their daughters in their responses. Selective service registration exists as a way to reinstitute the draft should the need arise.”

I’m Forgetting What It’s Like to Be Single – “Sometimes I forget what it felt like to be single. Sure, I remember the dates — the good, the bad, the non-existent. I remember driving places alone in my little blue-green Corolla (no car seats involved) to meet friends for movies or late-night coffee dates. And I remember crawling into my empty bed at day’s end and waking up to a totally silent house. I remember all of those things. But with each passing year of being married, I find it harder to recall the feeling of being on my own.”
