Depression: Walking on Water

For those who don’t know, I am blessed to be a part of the Tyndale Blog Network. I say blessed because it provides me with reading material that doesn’t cost money. It’s been a hit with my wife (in saving money) other than the fact that it does add to my already too-large book collection. So, I might be termed a book lover/hoarder aka bibliophile.

I’ll seriously try not to make this your typical book review. I promise. One of the gifts I look forward to each Christmas is a gift card to either Books-A-Million or Barnes and Noble. Everyone talks about being a visual learner, hand learner, or non-learner. I would have to fall under the category of textual learner. (Yes, that automatically makes me a weird person, I know, but I do know some pretty random trivia as a result. Just call me Ken-Jennings-Junior-Not.) You can ask my friends, I remember odd things as well, like once at Battle of the Sexes where I remembered the name of all three of the Power Puff Girls. For the record, their names are Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup and also for the record I carried the men that night to a smashing victory on...
