Mother’s Day was certainly unique this year due of the COVID-19 pandemic. For me, the week leading up to Mother’s Day was interesting as it was full of video interviews and preparations for various opportunities to share my story. I recorded an interview with a local pastor (and friend of mind) for his Mother’s DayContinue reading “My Week of Interviews – And Sharing One with You!”

Neighbor Day Weekend
My youngest daughter snuggled into me this morning on the recliner. She had just gotten out of bed for the day and carried her seemingly ever-present-when-she-first-wakes-up purple blanket down with her. She rubbed it against her face. She’s in first grade, so I delight in these moments. They are becoming increasingly rare. “I’m excited aboutContinue reading “Neighbor Day Weekend”
When I was 10 years old, my dad took the position of pastor at Emmanuel Community Church. Six weeks later, my mom died suddenly in our kitchen while sitting at the table.

One of those days.
Yesterday, before the sunrise, my oldest child stood in front of his middle school peers and shared his story. The Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) group meets once a week in the cafeteria before the first bell of the school day. One Wednesday each month they combine with another middle school FCA in town. They join their groupsContinue reading “One of those days.”
