Top 10 Tips for Medieval Princesses

| July 27, 2014

Let’s face it: most of us girls wanted to be a princess at some point in our lives, and had the plastic tiara and tinsel-covered dress to prove it.

Apostate II

| February 28, 2014

Apostate: II – The Book Trailer from Kevin Swanson on Vimeo.  Whatever happened to Western civilization?

| July 20, 2013

There is nothing much sadder than a person who lives out a seemingly purposeless existence. I say “seemingly” because we all have a purpose—each one of us, regardless of our circumstances in life. But many of us never fulfill that purpose, whether out of fear, unbelief, or just plain rebellion. Read an excellent book review […]
