by Lidi Brock Why, hello there, heroes. It's been a crazy couple of months organizing Planet Hope's first startup campaign. It's been a lot of hard work for us at Planet Hope, Gogo Grandmothers, and Ash & Emblem. But why do we do it? For glory and riches, of course. You could take me at… Continue reading Why is it important to help kids in Malawi, anyway?
Welcome to the New World Order, folks. In my lifetime, almost a quarter of a century, thank you very much, I don't think I've seen anything afffect the entire world for the worst like this. Not even the rise of the Facebook or Google engines. The only thing I could think to compare it to… Continue reading Dear Coronavirus Deniers:
by Jennifer Copeland Today is World Children’s Day. Since 1954, United Nations has marked the 20th of November every year as the day to celebrate children, their rights, and their power to bring about change. Around the world, change is needed.

When I wondered what to write about for World Kindness Day, an annual celebration of kindness held every November 13th, something came to mind which I bore witness to, years ago on the streets of downtown Toronto. I was standing outside a fast food restaurant, waiting for a friend to come out and witnessed something… Continue reading World Kindness Day: “Be the light you wish to see in the world”

In senior year, I was working on a teen dystopian novel called "Rubble" that included the characters discussing Biblical matters. I wish I could finish that book, but I wrote it during physics, chemistry, and biology classes, and there's no way I could remember all the weird sciency stuff I was planning on putting in it. I do think it's interesting how I wrote about a lockdown, and people not wanting to listen to the government to keep them safe. Hmm...Pandemic predicted? Anyway. Hope you enjoy! Comment below if you might want to read more of this incomplete work.
I think that until we really realize what life is like without God, this almost literally Godforsaken earth we've advocated for since the beginning of time, it would be impossible for us to truly understand that an eternity of perfect communion with God and each other is the only antidote to this aching pain we have deep within us. Once we get to heaven and our sinful, selfish blinders are removed, I don't think we'd have eternity any other way.
There's nothing like connecting with a group on a lovely weekend. What did you do this weekend?
This is a story I'm actually pretty proud of, especially the poem at the beginning. I think people have regrets that are hard to talk about, but sometimes you can use it to teach someone else a lesson so they can avoid what you did.
Dear People Who Believe Climate Change Isn’t Real, I know you’re scared. I’m scared too. We are asking you to make a lot of changes that would radically redefine how you live your lives. So I get it. But let me ask you something, a question someone else asked. So what if climate change is… Continue reading Just A Thought
