Christmas With A Capital C

Since Christmas decorations have been in stores alongside Halloween decor for months now, seems even more relevant to have a Christmas movie coming out, right?

Last season had the aroma of disgruntled grinches wanting nativity scenes or other Christmas symbols removed, hubbub sprinkled of stores saying "Seasons Greetings" instead of "Merry Christmas" and various boycotts roasting on open fires. Thus, a movie being produced about this subject isn't surprising.


I love good, clean, inspiring, family movies. Too often Hollywood forgets that a flick can do well without showing lots of skin, tossing curses around, or focusing on the worst of human nature. Don't get me wrong, my favorite genres are sci-fi and action movies. The more explosions, robots, and peril the better! But even with some of those films, there's this compelling need to drop in as many curse words as possible. It amazes me that the industry thinks it's fine for a 13 year old to hear the Lord's name misused. But that's another topic for another time.

After watching the trailer above, is this a movie you're excited or curious about seeing? Why or why not? Share your comments below.

NEA Is Full Of It

"When did you become some political?"

That question is asked of me routinely by random friends in various wording. Fact is, five years ago, before moving from Mississippi to the DC Metro, the extent of my political expressions were limited to voting in elections. I didn't discuss or write about politics. Frankly, I rather despised politics. These days, it's impossible to be a conservative and not speak up while living near DC.

Limiting the amount of political sharing on my Facebook page is a daily goal. After all, no one wants to only hear about one genre from someone all the time. Sadly, there's a lot of material out there that most of us shield our eyes and ears to it or have it spoon-fed by the the media instead of researching and forming our own conclusions. At least two people have defriended me on Facebook and several more dropped off my Twitter feed as a result of my conservative views. Their loss.

Some things simply must be shared. Such as the recent even…

See You Around, Mike

Three weeks ago, I attended the memorial service of a dear Brother in Christ. Sunday, June 10, would've been his 56th birthday.
I miss my friend. But what's sad is that I didn't miss Mike until he was gone.

At least in the middle of the odd month, but definitely by the last week of it, Mike would always reach out to me with a request. It was usually to load a certain worship music video or some game show music. Sometimes, he needed some specific slides created or sound effects. Mike put a lot of thought into preparing the lessons.

For certain lessons, Mike asked the kids to write something that was bothering them or something that was a sin. Then he had them take hammer and nail to that card and attach it to an old rugged cross. Mike often brought in props to physically connect the Bible stories to the kids. For example, when he dressed as an innkeeper and walked in a wheelbarrow full of fresh cow manure. He was adding the smell of a barn to the lesson just to help set th…

Turtle Invaders Are Here!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zyrobotics, LLC for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's sad to think that some of you reading this have never heard of or played Space Invaders. Ah, the memories of playing that game at the mall arcade (something else long gone)! Sigh. Now, multiple game platforms exist and few games are more convenient than those playable via apps on your phone. With a wink at the classic Space Invaders approach, Turtle Invaders is a new app for younger children and children with special needs. I downloaded it and took it for a spin.
