We're in the midst of various shifts in our culture surrounding these concepts, especially in relation to ethnicity and gender, and some of these shifts are good.

How to Start Getting Smarter

Want to be wiser? Fear God more. That's where getting smarter starts.

Understanding the meaning of life begins with …

Who Invented Social Media? God Did.

God invented social media. I know that might sound like a crazy claim, but I have a biblical basis for believing this. So I'm primarily speaking to those who believe with me that God is the creator presented to us in the biblical book of Genesis. Social media seems like a new term. Many people are just hearing it, and many others are already tired of it. It's a trend, a fad, something that people are jumping on quickly for reasons ranging from connecting to old friends to …

Great Designers Learn from Great Design

There are titles aplenty in the design and development world. I'm not so much a developer as I am a designer, but I'm not so much a graphic designer as I am a front end website developer, so some would call me a user interface designer or web user interface designer. Or perhaps I'm an information architect or perhaps an online communication designer. But I'm not an application developer or database architect. So what exactly do I do? I design stuff, like logos and …

Face to Face With My Creator

It so happens that the distance from the earth to one of our brightest stars, the not-too-distant star Betelgeuse (pronounced Beatle-juice), is approximately 520 light-years. Betelgeuse is the bright orange-red star in the winter constellation …
