Family: Part Two

Mele had always been some mythical character in the far distant past. I’d heard bits and pieces of her story from family members. Her mother’s name was High Feather, or maybe... — Updated 8/1/2015


Family: Part One

2015! Twenty fifteen sounds like the title of a sci-fi movie. Sometimes I feel like I am living in the middle of such an epoch. Every day, advances in technology expand way beyond... — Updated 1/17/2015


"If Only" at Christmas

I grew up on the Wind River Reservation in Wyoming, not because I am Arapahoe or Shoshone (I am actually part Ponca), but because our doctor in Denver told my parents that my brothe... — Updated 12/4/2014


Taste Buds

God Loves You

If I only had one more opportunity to communicate to our readers (and I hope this is not my last article), what would I want to say? There is only one foundational truth that makes... — Updated 3/15/2014

What if the Bible is true? That question runs through my mind constantly as I listen and watch the world around me, and in the age of technology, that is quite a large world. I... — Updated 1/18/2014


Christmas Kaleidoscope

Wes and I are enjoying retirement. We moved out of the Toronto area, and, though I miss good friends, I don’t miss the traffic and incessant roar of the city. I enjoy a quieter,... — Updated 11/23/2013
