Alright! You all are in for a treat. I have asked my sister-in-law and friend to write about her story and leadership journey. Mandy, and her husband Trevan, actually are a key factor in Sara and I getting together. I’m so thankful that a joke about “dating Mandy’s sister” became my life story. Freaking awesome! … More GUEST POST: Mandy Hamm
A couple months ago I decided to get my wedding ring tattooed onto my finger. I have went through SO MANY rings in just 4.5 years of marriage. I mainly wear the silicone wedding rings that are great for working out which we do a lot of in our household. But I kept tearing them … More A Key to Successful Relationships

I’m sad… That’s really all I can say at the moment. I see these events at our capitol, spurred on by a leader, encouraged by some (thankfully not all) Jesus-followers, and looked upon in horror by the world and it just makes me sad. This is a new year, a new beginning, and it’s time … More I am who you say I am
Dear Negativity, We’re breaking up. It’s not me, it’s you. Well, it used to be me too until I realized that the only reason I was the way you were is because we had such a close relationship. But I know that’s what you wanted, me to mirror you. You tried to make me into … More We’re Breaking Up
