  • Lost To History

    A lot of people have aspirations of being famous. The modern culture promotes it. How many reactions can this Facebook post get? How many “friends” can I get? How many followers can I get on Twitter or Instagram? How many likes and subscribers can I get on YouTube? The list goes on.

  • Discomfort in a Good Season

    I’m not much of one for re-reading books. In fact, there’s only been one book (other than the Bible), that I’ve read more than once - “Wild at Heart” by John Eldredge.

  • The Big Move

    A quick heads up about this post: it’s a long one in which I’m painfully transparent and brutally honest.

  • 2015 One Word Review

    Sometime near the end of 2014 or the beginning of 2015, I decided to try the “one word for the year” challenge (http://myoneword.org/). I had heard about it on the radio a couple years prior and how God had used it in incredible ways for the people participating in it. I prayed about it, trying to figure out my word.

  • You Can Let Life Happen or You Can Make Life Happen

    If you have the chance to do something that you may never have the chance to do again, why not take that chance? Opportunities come and go. When the opportunity arises and it lines up with your goals, dreams, and values - that may be the open door for you to walk through. What’s to say that door will ever be open again?

  • A New Year, A New Word

    For a couple years, I’ve heard of people doing a word for the year. Basically, the idea is to pick a word and let it be your focus for the year, as opposed to numerous resolutions that no one keeps.
