All the internet hate on ABR’s new song and failing to live up to expectations makes me sick. While it’s inevitably offensive because it’s my husband’s work, I think the ignorance is what really gets to me. I mean, you’ve listened to one song, and you have the audacity to critique the entire album, the talent of the members, and the progression of the band as a whole?...

Mars & Venus: My Recent Thoughts and Conclusions...
The past few days I’ve been helping out a family friend who’s going through a difficult time. Her engagement was broken off abruptly and both parties are now left confused and trying to piece together how it all fell apart. As I told her, the reasons just didn’t seem weighty enough to justify this decision. After hearing all the facts, it seemed to really boil down to a lack of...
“Sometimes I went so far as to thank destiny for the privilege of such loneliness, for only in solitude could I have scrutinized my past so carefully, or examined so closely my inner and outward life. What strange new germs of hope were born in my soul during those memorable hours! I weighed and decided all sorts of issues, I entered into a compact with myself to avoid the errors of former...
On Death, without Exaggeration It can’t take a joke, find a star, make a bridge. It knows nothing about weaving, mining, farming, building ships, or baking cakes. In our planning for tomorrow, it has the final word, which is always beside the point. It can’t even get the things done that are part of its trade: dig a grave, make a coffin, clean up after itself. Preoccupied...
Hello tumblr world, I have an update/question for you guys. The most recent project I’ve been working on is putting together my own website. It will mainly consist of my writing, art, vlogs, pictures, and whatever else I feel. For those of you who know about Heart Support, you’ve probably noticed that I rarely post blogs. I’m technically the editor-at-large, but also handle the...

Anonymous asked: gay marriage seems to be a huge topic as of late. though I disagree with it, I refuse to make it my idol. I will not support it, but I will not obsess over we. we are supposed to make neighbors and this distraction and disagreement sin has placed in our paths is making enemies for years to come. comments?
Anonymous asked: Hello, I've been looking at your site and found Heart Support on here. Did you and Jake create it? I found Jake's testimony one day, then found out about Heart Support. I think it's a truly amazing organization and it makes me really enthusiastic about our Lord and Savior. I stand behind it all the way. Thank you, have a wonderful day!
deliv3rer asked: Hey there Kris I don't expect you to reply so I'll make this short. I would just be overjoyed if you knew that I look up to you and Jake as inspiration for me to go out and live each day to the fullest under the word of god. I've been a born again christian for the last 3 years now and the past 6 months have especially been a challenge of my faith. I then stumbled across videos on...
Anonymous asked: I just wanted to say congratulations on finding a great guy. It's good to see that two kind-hearted, genuinely great people can still find love and friendship together in this world. I'm a bit of a cynic. I don't really find much hope in a lot of the world. It isn't the best way to be, but it's just the way I am. Anyways, you guys give me hope that I can eventually grow...
