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...

I have started this post a couple of different times and chased down different rabbit trails, but I think this is best collection of thoughts I have right now on social media. Also, who doesn't have thoughts on social media, right? Love it or hate it, most people use i...
