• Running the Race

    June 11, 2019 by

    I don’t know if you’re like me. It can take a while for something to stick. Some people pick up on everything and seem to have no trouble understanding what seems to bounce off my thick skull. ” Don’t you know that the runners in a stadium all race, but only one receives the prize?… Read more

  • Why I’m a Foster Parent.

    February 16, 2019 by

    Fostering is hard, very hard. But, I’m glad that we’ve made the choice to go through with it. I didn’t really know what foster care was when I was growing up. I knew we had neighbors down the road who fostered teenagers. They would ride the same bus as me. Rumor had it that they… Read more

  • Who I believe God is.

    February 11, 2019 by

    A small group I attend is working through a booklet. This week one of the questions we had to answer is “What do you believe about God?”. Well, I believe a lot about God, but I’ve never taken the time to write it down, I thought with would be a great opportunity to do just… Read more

  • Why don’t more people step into Church leadership?

    October 18, 2018 by

    One of my favorite things I get to do to serve the church is leading our young adult ministry. It’s not a large group of people but it’s growing in number, and in its effectiveness, and it keeps me thinking young. We are in the middle of a study called “Identity: Image Bearers of the… Read more

  • What happens when we get back up

    June 22, 2018 by

    I’ve written on failure before. I will write on it again. It’s something I’m good at (failing that is). I write on failing because I need the reminder that there are two options when we fail. Option A) stay down, option B) get back up. I am not good at getting back up. So I’m… Read more

  • A Birthday Letter to Myself

    March 20, 2019 by

    Two weeks after my birthday, in 2016, I wrote yourself a letter. I don’t remember exactly what had happened, but I believe I had been passed over for a job. I still have that letter and I read it occasionally, most often around my birthday. It’s a reminder to keep going, to keep fighting. The… Read more

  • What happens when we get back up, part 2

    June 29, 2018 by

    Last week I published some thoughts on failing, a post to myself but probably words many need to hear.  As always I had more experience failing this week.  If this had happened to me even just a couple weeks ago I would have described it as a “disaster”.  Here is the story: The Business Development… Read more
