Sing Your Loved Ones Home

I can’t remember richer times of worship than at the bedside of my dying grandfather. I am not usually given to singing (especially solo), but I surprised myself when, in the rollercoaster of the few days leading up to his departure, I could not sing enough to him. My family shared many precious (and very hard) moments together as he lay dying. Through tears, we spoke with him while we could, reminding him of our great appreciation and love for him, reminding him of his great hope, his gre...

‘Creed 3’ Ready to Step Back in the Ring With a New Writer

Adonis Creed might be gearing up for another fight. Creed 3 is reported to be in the works, with Zach Baylin handling the script. Baylin wrote the upcoming King Richard, starring Will Smith as the father of Venus and Serena Williams. There are zero plot details for Creed 3 at the moment, and no director is attached yet. On top of all that, star Michael B. Jordan is a busy man, so there’s no word on just when this movie will see the light of day. But you can bet MGM wants to make it happen. T...

Traditional Jordanian dishes

Jordan is widely known for its beauty thanks to the ancient city of Petra, the Wadi Rum Desert, and the Dead Sea. What gets less mainstream attention is the country’s rich culinary tradition. Jordan’s central position in the Middle East has long made it a crossroads of culture and a melting pot of food from North Africa, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean. Today, that history has made Jordan one of the most exciting areas for those who love to eat and drink. It is no coincidence that ther...
