Almost 365 days later….

This coming Saturday seemed a million miles away a year ago. I never thought I could make it one single day and now it has nearly been 365 days. I close my eyes and I can still feel the hollow emptiness I felt as I got in the car and left the hospital that night […]

A Perspective That Changes Everything

So much of life is about perspective and the lens in which we view life. I was telling some students at Union the other day about my ideas on parenting and how I think every parent, no matter how many children they have at one time, should bring home one “extra” for a week. Because […]

Layers of God’s Faithfulness
