Death of a dream

I spent some time today reflecting and rereading where we've been. I felt compelled to start this blog a little over a year ago. As I reflect, it feels like so much longer than that as so much has happened. Much of it is found in coming to terms with a life that I didn't… Continue reading Death of a dream

The A-team

As I sit here and reflect, I am amazed at the number of people God has put into my life during this season. This season, this year (and a bit), has been the hardest of my adult life.
