We are so thrilled to be on this fund raising journey for Mercy Branch, and it has been awesome to see all the ways God has provided in the midst of this journey. It has been humbling to see the ways that God has moved people to come alongside us on this journey. Having said […]

.The Scandal of the Kingdom.

Today Tiffany wrote about Doing It Scared. It is something that really resonates with how I am feeling. It has been such an encouragement to see God move people to come around and support our journey. We did a little promotional video to try and explain what we are doing or maybe why we are […]

.Together.

.All The Little Children.

Last week, I listened to an informal talk given by President Obama to students and faculty at the state university down the road from my house. In that talk, President Obama cited something that is not new news, not political… just a function of reality: The younger a child is given a “leg-up” academically, the […]

.33.

I can remember distinctly the time that my life shifted from a desire to please people, make a good living, and have nice stuff into something distinctly different. It began as I turned thirty. I realized all of the sudden that I really wanted to make a difference. At the time I wanted to please […]
