The Journey Continues – The Beginning of the Hard Things

There are many things that I have been avoiding. The other day I felt like it was time to do one of these “many things”. I wrestled with it for many hours. I even took a nap to try to get away from it but when I woke up I felt as though if it […]

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 […]
