In just a few hours, I'll be trick-or-treating with my two young children.  At last word, my daughter was going to dress up as a princess and my son was going to dress up as Gekko (of PJ Masks).  My daughter has been looking forward to Halloween for a few weeks and I h...

For most of my childhood, I lived in a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment with my mom, dad, and younger sister.  Since I was the older sibling, I slept on the top bunk of a bunk bed.  I remember that the hardwood floors were creaky throughout.  And that, since we live...

"Don’t fret or worry.  Instead of worrying, pray.  Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns.  Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down.  It’s wond...

If you're looking for a loosie in Center City, Philadelphia, just go to 15th & Market Streets, usually near one of the entrances to the EL -- either the one beneath the Clothespin or the other on the north side of Market Street.

To be clear, selling loosies is...
