“Revised Edition Family Ties: Thicker than Blood hints at a balance between the desired and the forbidden. But it’s only when the lines dividing the two are blurred that realization comes: life mandates a division, as the truth we live seldom substantiates the path imagined. There are people to whom circumstance connects you that represent more than branches on a genealogical tree. In Family Ties: Thicker than Blood, author, B. G. Howard explains the need to accept the fact there is no middle ground…and only one option where family is concerned.”

—Professor Gwen Alexis



Life in rural Georgia proves anything but easy for Willie LeBeaux, as childhood obstacles continue to present emotional and psychological barriers he simply can’t escape. The effort to start anew drives him to the city that never sleeps, where he hopes to get lost amidst the faceless inhabitants of post-911 New York.

Repenting Doesn’t Permit Repeating

Following participation in an early Morning Prayer group, I’m compelled to explore a topic that, in my opinion, requires clarification for some who volunteer to wear the “Christian” label. As well, there are many who don’t attest to be followers of Jesus and readily condemn Christians due to a sheerRead More »

Responsibility without accountability is…irresponsible

It seems that people have been tasked with the ever-demanding quest to “move forward” in life and continue on a path of unequaled achievement from the earliest possible moments of existence. Most of society would term that as growth, development or maturity. From the time an infant first begins toRead More »

In the wake of the hate

It’s never my intent to, as older folks used to say, beat a dead horse; but there has been a seemingly consistent decline in race relations throughout this country over the past several years. I’d intentionally chosen to steer clear of the topic altogether some time ago following a seriesRead More »
