January 26, 2012


An Open Letter to my beloved bride of 5 wonderful years. Kristina, I wanted to write you a letter to let you know how much I love you, but it didn’t seem like a letter would be enough. We do not have a lot of money and no room in the budget for buying you […]

August 29, 2016


So here it is, the blog post that I just am not very comfortable sharing. I can tell by looking at my face that I was dreading this moment, when I would try to think of something funny to write to hide how uncomfortable I am posting these pictures. Being comfortable got me into this […]

Recently, I was flipping through the pages of my blog and reviewing some of the old articles. I was a little surprised to find that I have not posted anything since October of last year.

You’re Not Going To Church Tomorrow? (Gasp!)

October 18, 2014


Yes, it is true: I am staying home from church tomorrow.  Now before you go all “Hebrews 10:25” on me, I’ll share with you the  situation and how staying home is not “forsaking the assembling of ourselves together”.
