Callianne is now 7 months big! Wow it seems like it can’t be so. I still remember driving to the hospital not knowing what on earth we were getting ourselves into. And now, in a blur, it’s 7 months later… How?! One thing I’m learning from this little girl is joy. I must admit, I’ve … More Lessons from a 7-month old
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
There’s a concept that is pretty new to me. It makes total sense but it wasn’t until I heard someone explain it to me that I recognized how my view has been skewed for so long. What is true power? And how is power used in a relationship? That’s a pretty big question; especially when … More Power is Lending Strength

I once heard, and ever since live by, this phrase: “The only difference between the leader you are today and the leader you will be tomorrow are the books you read and the people you surround yourself with.” I think that’s true. So, for that reason, I read pretty much every … More What’s missing from your Spiritual Journey?
This doesn’t come from me. It comes from Paul, a huge authority in Scripture. I’ve been reading the letters in the New Testament/Covenant. I’m in 2 Timothy now and how timely to come across this passage. Paul writes to young Timothy because he was dealing with a lot of divisive followers of Jesus. Timothy was … More I dare you to read this!
My Mom was a single mother. I’ve grown to respect that but not until recently did I actually realize how much extra a single parent carries. Oh my goodness! I’m pretty sure single parents have a lot more square footage in Heaven! Venturing out on this parenting journey, I’m quickly realizing that my desire to … More Parenting: a Partner Dance
Who doesn’t like “good vibes?” You’ve probably seen (and maybe wear) a t-shirt that says that phrase. I like it because it exudes optimism. I used to think it was just a cop out to not address the mess. But, upon reading Paul’s words in Philippians 4, I now understand that Paul was the “O.G” … More The O.G. Of “Good Vibes”
I’m a new dad as of barely 2 months ago. Since then, a lot of my ambitions have taken on a new flavor. I’m thinking more about the legacy I’m leaving for my family. The ambitions I pursue, I want them to have a lasting impact more than just my personal goals. I don’t know, … More Limiting Beliefs
Milestones are something everyone said to enjoy because they quickly pass when I became a dad. They’re right! They fly by and they’re so precious when they happen. The other day, a new one happened. Callianne lifted her toy dumbbell some dear friends got her. She’s going to outcompete Daddy soon enough! She’s been coming … More Thoughts on Milestones
