Welcome, y’all!

What is Good Lord, That’s Funny?

Good Lord, That’s Funny is as you may have guessed, a Christian’s guide to nerdiness, hilarity, and significance. You can tell what kind of post each one is by the seriousness meter in the featured image – It’s the little thing at the corner of the picture that looks like this:

It’s cute right? I call him Fredrick. He does my taxes.

Sometimes I write nerd stuff like game reviews or superhero talk, and sometimes I write just for giggles, about stuff like emus or Pidgin English. Sometimes I write about parenting, and sometimes I write about important stuff like discipline.

No matter what though, I’m always motivated by a deep desire to follow Christ. And also I’m hilarious. That’s probably obvious though.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I was reading your article about the teenagers and the internet and started reading your posts. thank you for this one. It is something that I need to remind myself everyday. …I am a daughter of my Heavenly Parents, a daughter of my earthly parents, a sister to my siblings. a mother to my children and a grandmother to my grand children….I am so lucky to be able to be all these things.

  2. Thanks for your article on Internet safety with teens. (I reposted) as I too am a teacher and we “hear” about these apps etc plus I have a 15 and 12 year old. I try to be ahead of the game and check often on my daughter and what she is doing. I just remind her it’s because I care and love her, if I didn’t I wouldn’t take the time. I always appreciate articles like yours because it seems like these apps come out quicker than I can keep up with – so thanks!

  3. Kayla, I just discovered your blog and read the post on internet safety. I am a great-grandmother and retired school counselor. I shared this on FB. Parents and teachers should read this. I am also a blogger but basically stories from my past. I am about to rant about bullying!

  4. Thank you for your article about internet safety. I’m also a Christian high school teacher but surely am not as cool and tech-savvy as you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Read through some of your blog and will share you “Engaged” item with our daughter who is engaged. Blessings to you, Kayla Nicole, as your students are certainly blessed to have you there for them!

  5. Oh – and still laughing out loud over your Amazon Drone gifs.. Just HOW do you do that…? (My students would love for me to know…) BTW – my friend’s son is one of the engineers working on this. And he’s 12. Or maybe 25. (But it seems he should be about 12).

  6. Are you on Twitter Kayla? If so, I’d follow ya! I think it’s important to create a positive digital footprint as an example for my students. Funny, this month I blogged about Thinking before you comment and focusing on ethics. Thank you for your post, it was really thought provoking! God bless!

  7. Hi Kayla! A few of my friends shared your article on their Facebook pages, and I thought it was very insightful and vastly important. As I read it, I found myself identifying with you in so many ways. I am also a strong Christian, a newlywed, a high school English teacher in California, and only 6-10 years older than my students. I get a look into their lives more than many do, as well, but I still find myself wanting to remain ignorant to some of these apps just because they make me so incredibly sad. However, I’d like to be more aware. Did you have them take a survey at the beginning of the year about social media? Did you have a conversation with them about it? I’ve discussed with my kids multiple times how much they need to be careful of what they do with social media, but I’d love to hear any ideas of how you’ve tried to reach them and teach them in this area! Thanks again so much for your article, Kayla!!

  8. Awesome awesome post on internet safety. I recently went through my daughter’s phone and oh the horror but eye opening experience. Let’s just say I’m glad I found out all that I did before anything drastic happened and you’re absolutely right about all these apps and how teens will find a loophole. I was there once but before social media and cell phones so i am afraid for our future generation and join you in warning parents to pls pls get involved. Check your teens phones and watch out for these secret apps. Their privacy is worth invading at this age. I got my daughter a journal and took away her phone and deleted all her social media acts..drastic? Maybe but I’d rather take these drastic measures than have something drastic happen to her.

Thoughts?
