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?

Ever watch an MMA match before? Honestly, I don't often but I have seen my fair share on TV. It's like a car wreck! I just can't look away.

In the midst of running around, here are some quick leadership shots I wrote down. Ben Franklin once said, " Without continual growth … Continue reading Leadership Shots. Take a Few For Yourself.
We're rarely ever bored. Recently I was in a doctors office filling out insurance paperwork. My favorite! Kidding. After I was done, I sat down and just waited... I don't always do this.
