I almost titled this piece, “Lessons from Factoring Quadratic Square Trinomials” but I realized that would scare off most people from the start, so I opted for a friendlier, 3-word monosyllabic title. Yet I know the word “math” would still make some…

In response to my article, The Lord Works In Mysterious Ways, I got an email from a reader named Gilbert. My original reply to him was a bit short so I hope to expand on it more here. He makes three points in the letter but in the interest of brevity, I…

As the country commemorates Independence Day, I thought of writing a short reflection of what independence and freedom means in the context of my religious upbringing. From an early age, I had been taught that because God loves me, he sent his son to die…

It’s my dad’s 87th birthday as I write this. I spent the last few days scanning old photographs in preparation for a slideshow I was making for the celebration. Seeing those photos reminded me of the many lessons I learned from him while growing up. Even…

My wife does not like drinking cold water. She likes her water slightly hot. When we eat out, she would usually ask the waiter or waitress for “warm water.” Sometimes they would get it right but there would be some instances when she would be served…

Upperclassmen gathered us in a common area with the lights turned off. We were told to squat with our hands raised on our heads while they barked the rules for initiation week, all the while making fun of us, calling us names, insulting us, and making…
