#AdamsActs

Today I want to introduce you to a fellow blogger, a mom of a child with special needs, a David's Refuge guest and host, and friend, Lara Capuano.   I love her honesty, transparency, and genuine faith.  Listen to how she is described on her website: Lara also makes you feel bipolar because while you are cackling uncontrollably at her hilarity, you'll inevitably be punctured by the stories of her life that are soaked in grief. There was abandonment, substance abuse, indiscretion, and even murder.  Lara's older brother Adam was shot Halloween night ...

Standing For You

To stand or to kneel, a question that seems to be dividing our country.  Turn on your TV, open your Facebook News  Feed, or listen to the radio for just few moments and you will be barraged with commentary, opinion, hatred, fear and debate.  Each side vehemently believes in their perspective.  Some of the debate is civil and helpful, while most seems to be ugly, mean, and destructive.

Just One Taste

Can you remember a time when someone said to you, "Just one taste!  I promise you'll like it."  Slowly they dip a fork into their concoction, twirling the bite size morsel into the sauce with all the bits and pieces.  As they raise the sample to your mouth, your nose is working like a basset hound trying to determine if you will like it or not.  While no one else can hear your thoughts, you are very aware of the voices saying, "Don't eat it!" or "One bite and you ...
