A Different Kind Of Christmas Let's face it, this Christmas is just going to be different. There is no getting around it. And this is what I am writing about on Candidly Christian today. And in all honesty, I actually wrote this post in October, and then revised it a few days ago, when the [...]
Having a daughter, we watch a lot of princess movies, mostly Disney. In most Disney movies, the princess gets the prince. And that leads me to one of the greatest love stories in the Bible.

(side note: I actually ended up giving her the dolls a few weeks later, because I mean, she is cute, and she adores them) Yeah, girls being easier than boys is a myth in my house. And while we are on the topic of myths, I wanted to address a spiritual myth that I have come across over the years. That God won't give us more than we can handle.
