Since I had different friends growing up, my mom always warned me when I went to their houses, "if something or someone ever makes you feel uncomfortable, you call me right away, and I will pick you up." One time, I went to a friend's birthday party and her mom rented us movies (from BLOCKBUSTER!) … Continue reading Generous Obedience
CLIMBBBBB EVERY MOUNTAINNNN! Have you ever climbed a mountain before? I have in Guatemala, years ago. You needed some endurance for that hike but it was manageable. I still remember the next morning waking up literally in the clouds. It was the craziest thing. I also got a picture with a donkey. So.... I guess … Continue reading Zigzags & Circles
Kids can be ruthless sometimes. Back in my high school days I used to babysit this 5 year old boy. He wasn’t so bad to watch but sometimes he would have the worst tantrums (like kicking-me-in-the-face tantrums). I remember he used to love to play this spy video game and he would get so mad … Continue reading I Want What I Want

Let's talk about something simple/complicated.... Kindness. Kindness is really a simple concept, but it can be hard at times for multiple reasons. We all can agree that our world needs more of it but sometimes, we don't even do it ourselves!
You just gotta show up. Recently I shared a story with someone about something I received from another person (I promise the Dr. Seuss trail ends there). A total gift! Their response to my story was, “it just seems like God is blessing you because you are a pastor.” I kind of didn’t expect that … Continue reading Show Up
SAY WHAT?! I know. You thought this was a Christian blog! **GASP** It is! Keep your clothes on. Just yesterday I came across, yet again, another person ripping off their clothes in the Bible (and people think God's word is not entertaining). There are various times when people have been provoked to "tear their … Continue reading Tear Off Your Clothes!
Yo, marriage is crazy! I've always thought about how my life would be once I was married. What will our day-to-day be like? What would we make for dinner? What weird habits will he have? I read a lot of books and talked to a few marrieds before I tied the knot and received joint … Continue reading WAFFLES. A Post About Marriage.
