Body Piercing Saved My Life

I moved to Colorado Springs from the East Coast in 1996 to sever a bad relationship. I was 28 years old, unemployed, didn't know a soul, and was moving into a one-bedroom apartment, sight unseen, that was reserved for me by an apartment finders service. I was determined to make a new life for myself, regardless of the obstacles, fears, or homesickness. A month later, I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and began another new life with new… Continue

Estes Park is Worth the Trip

I am what you call directionally challenged. In other words, I can get lost in my own house! So if I'm going to explore, it needs to be somewhere close to home or someone else needs to drive so that the search party does not need to come looking for me.



In September of 2006, my husband and I were fortunate enough to have been invited on a camping trip to Estes Park, Colorado. Thankfully, our hosts offered to drive. We packed up the camping gear and headed north to Rocky Mountain… Continue

Litterbugs Drive Me Crazy!

I finally was able to get to the America the Beautiful Park for the first time a couple of weeks ago and took some fantastic pictures of the Continuum, a/k/a Julie Penrose, Fountain. I excitedly told my husband about the fountain and park, and suggested we have a picnic there soon.



This past Sunday, we made our way to the park and set up our picnic area. The park was busy with people wading in the fountain, bikers resting in the shade, guys playing football, couples walking dogs,… Continue

America the Beautiful Park is Exactly That

I have a confession to make: I'm one of those people who sees articles in the newspaper, cuts them out, and saves them so that I'll remember to visit that great spot, take part in that upcoming event, shop at that chic store, try that yummy recipe, listen to that awesome concert.... My problem is, I put the article in such a safe place that I can't find it again! Then I forget to go do it!



I had come across several articles regarding America the Beautiful Park and purposed to visit… Continue

OUR ETHICAL CRISIS

I have just finished teaching a course in ethics to about 20 adult college students who are trying to complete their undergraduate degrees. The experience has been both enjoyable and discouraging for me. I enjoy the classroom, with its stimulating interchange with students and the opportunity to explore their thinking. But this occasion has also been discouraging for several reasons; and this is what I want to discuss here.



First, it will perhaps be useful to explain my general… Continue

Does Mass Participation Make Sin Acceptable?

The local Colorado Springs news has been dominated, these last few days, by reports of a prominent religious figure who has been exposed for his immoral behavior. Immoral behavior is always a tragedy with serious ramifications for, not only the guilty person himself, but also usually for his friends, family, and those who love him. However, this current tragedy will have ramifications far beyond that local group. His prominence will assure that. To make the issue even more serious, his sin is… Continue

Spicing Up the Springs

Teaching Autumn Soups last night helped people realize how much punch herbs and spices add to meals. We used the basics - oregano, thyme, garlic, cilantro and a Thai Kitchen curry paste as well as salt and pepper.



We first compared dried thyme from the Savory Spice Shop (opening downtown on Tejon next week, just in thyme for the holidays!) to the fresh thyme I had picked an hour earlier from my plant at home. They both smelled amazing and, while the dried thyme from… Continue
