Dear Bubba Watson…

So you lost your cool. You acted how you probably never thought you would act on the golf course and even said a few choice words on national tv. I don’t want to tell you how you should have done better. I don’t even want to tell you that we expected more from a Christian in the public eye. I just want to say I’m sorry. Bubba, I’m sorry for how Christians everywhere responded! You… … Continue reading

Arguing Sometimes Gets Us Nowhere

I looked around the circle at the four faces of my nervous band mates. It was our first official “show” and we were terrified. I loved singing in the shower, but in front of PEOPLE? I was terrified.
