Together In Community

I love to write about community. About people living life together. It’s close to my heart, and ultimately, where I feel Jesus is. We represent Christ well when we live as one body. There is a wonderful group of women who I “do life” with. Jen Hatmaker would call them my “tribe”. They are the […]

Plan on a Short Life

Our small town woke up to a tragedy last Sunday morning. Around bedtime Saturday night an SUV swerved and wrecked in a bean field. There were 7 people inside, most of them children.

The Circle of Life

  One of my favorite men in the world is Dr. Jimmy Sites. Jimmy has a television show called Spiritual Outdoor Adventures in which he ties hunting into celebrating the beauty of God’s creation. Among other things, he is just an over all cool dude with a ton of wisdom. He has what he (as […]

Drinking Expensive Water!

  I’m not a huge fan of water, but keeping the body hydrated with water is well beyond necessary for optimal health on a daily basis. I’m typically a sporadic water drinker, but if I’m honest I tend to take more sabbaticals from water than I care to admit. A few months ago I decided […]
