What Christmas is all about

by Erin Wallace

The other day I was watching William as he was looking out our front window at the neighbor’s house.  They have one of those projector light systems and the lights were slowly swirling and changing.  William’s eyes were filled with wonder and he said that it was mesmerizing.  Everywhere we go, his eyes light up […]

Who Should I Vote For?

by Erin Wallace

In a week, we will have a new president, whether we like it or not.  I’m just going to say it: I don’t like my candidate or the other party’s candidate.  To say that this election season has been fraught with scandal and ugliness and has left voters untethered is an understatement.  People are saying […]
