    What Facebook Isn't Telling You

    Blog | Heather Day | October 22, 2015

    I don’t mean to brag, but my Facebook friends are smarter than yours.

    They read interesting books, have witty observations about life, and give their time, resources and energy to the most important causes.  Come to think of it, they like and do all of the things that I admire.

    Timothy McVeigh, the man convicted of the 1995 bombing that killed 168 people at a federal office building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, wrote these words before his 2001 execution: “I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.”

    McVeigh was sadly mistaken. Like everyone on earth, he was accountable to God. In Ezekiel 18:4 the Lord said, “all souls are Mine,” and in verse 20 He added, “The soul who sins shall die.”

    When Being Right is Wrong

    Blog | Heather Day | August 20, 2015

    There the cursor blinked at me, its steady beat mimicking the pounding of my heart. To send or not to send… That was the question.

    Earlier that morning, I’d received a scathing email pointing out a handful of mistakes I’d made on a recent project – nothing major, but embarrassing blunders nonetheless.
