I was driving home last week around 5:30 when I got a call from my daughter, Becky. "Dad, I am with Grandma over at her nursing home, and there is a fire here somewhere with smoke beginning to fill the halls. Can you come quickly to help get everyone out?" As I altered my route to get to Southpark Meadows Nursing and Rehab, I was overtaken by a fire truck, obviously heading in the same directio... read more >
My boys love to go to Chick-fil-A. I am a counselor at Buena Park High School and one of our Friday night family traditions in the fall is to go to the home football games for my school. My boys were so excited this year that the Buena Park Chick-fil-A, including the Cow was now at the football games. Periodically throughout the game the Cow and its assistant would walk around and shoot out small... read more >
Chick-fil-A has become my new favorite restaurant. Here's why...
Without knowing it, I threw my new Samsung Galaxy into the trash at the Brentwood, Tennessee Chick-fil-A. An hour and a half later, frantic and stressed out, I was back hoping beyond hope that someone found it and turned it in. At the counter I was asked how I could be helped.
"Has anyone turned in a cell phone in the last hour ... read more >

Four years ago, my husband and I found out that we were going to have our first child, a boy. We were so excited. All went well with the pregnancy until around 28 weeks when it was discovered that I had type 1 diabetes. It was hard to control, but against the odds of complications, our son was born happy and healthy. I was told by my doctor that I should consider not having any more children becau... read more >
It was my first day of high school. My best friend and I were lucky enough to have the same homeroom together. She told me that there was supposed to be a really hot guy in our homeroom. She said his name was Luke and every girl had a crush on him.
On our first day I sat in the front row of the class. My friend sat in the desk behind me. She hit my back, of course I turned around to look at her... read more >
March 29th, 2014 was a day that changed my life. During a basketball game, I was hit and fell down tearing my ACL, shredding my meniscus, and fracturing my tibia. What I had hoped for in my upcoming senior year was all shattered after this incident. Six months later and I am still struggling to walk, use the restroom, and shower on my own. Through my darkest days I still manage to put a smile ... read more >
Since I live in Wisconsin, where Chick-fil-A hasn't quite expanded (yet), going to Chick-fil-A is a huge treat. I really only get a chance to eat my favorite Chick-n-Strips when our Nazarene Teen Bible Quizzing team participates in quizzing tournaments out of state. Each year, Stephen, my fellow quizzing coach, and I get to introduce a handful of really great kids to the awesomeness of Chick-fil-A... read more >
