Ok. Here we are. Mid-November and it's been a minute. So I will be as brief as possible while still sharing a couple of important things. This post started out at "10 things," but I quickly realized that was reaching a bit, so five feels just right. Here are a few thin...

These past few weeks I have spent hours interviewing (getting to know) 4th and 5th-grade students who want to be a part of a leadership team at our church. Some come dressed up in dresses or suits others in gym shorts and sandals. Some are polished others struggle a li...

The half-marathon 3 is weeks from today. And we all know the first real rule of running a half-marathon is that you talk about it. The opposite of Fight Club, if you will. The second is training. Yesterday I did an 8 miler that had a lot of hills in the front half and...
