Welcoming Others…

America has for most of my lifetime been a country who welcomes others. That was severely changed for the four years that despicable person occupied the Oval Office. It is just strange to me that so many who call themselves Christians do the exact opposite of the above! Thankfully, there are enough progressive Christians who will carry this mantel. Those who are afraid of so … Continue reading Welcoming Others…

A Seat At The Table…

The most terrorizing thing for many white men, and particularly evangelicals, is that everyone now is demanding a seat at the table. There are unarmed revolutions going on now in most countries of the world saying that we will no longer live invisible in the shadows of white men. Those demanding a seat at the table are a very diverse group, much like the population … Continue reading A Seat At The Table‚Ķ

LOM – A Celebration…On The Margins

I don’t know about you, but I kinda think it is time to start celebrating. We have had a dreadful year fighting this virus, but the end is now in sight. We had an anguishing four years with a ranting incompetent narcissist in the daily news. Simply speaking there haven’t been many reasons to celebrate life in general. When I started Life On the Margins … Continue reading LOM – A Celebration…On The Margins

About Aspies & Narcissism?

I think it is time for another Aspie lesson on RJsCorner. This one is a very basic question Are Aspies Narcissists? One Aspie characteristic that I have in spades is I take things much more personally than NTs. I should probably stop here and explain NT. Those with Aspergers are considered more “neurodiverse” than much of the general population. To signal that difference people without … Continue reading About Aspies & Narcissism?

Understanding MAGA…

I have made it my quest lately to try and understand the MAGA folks who voted for the current Oval Office occupant. They surely are not set on destroying our country but what drives them? I got a partial answer to that from a recent Fareed Zakaria program on CNN.

Homeschooling

I will say up front here that I am not an advocate for homeschooling.  I think it deprives a person of some very necessary life experiences. What is the primary reason that parents give for homeschooling their children? We control the curriculum. With homeschooling, I can choose the curriculum that best meets my child‚Äôs learning style. A relaxed atmosphere.Homeschooling, for the most part, is a … Continue reading Homeschooling
