She Walks in Black and White

Do you find ambiguity frustrating? As a 1 on the Enneagram, I enjoy some good old-fashioned dichotomies: the solid world of black-and-white truth.

The Lord My Rock Piler

We serve a good God, and I'm constantly finding new favorite things about Him. One such example is His habit of building reminders into the culture of His people.
