As I look at a lot of the current new books, I'm struck with a common theme. A lot of them tell the story of unmet expectations in some area of life (or every area of life). It's just not what we thought it would be. I get it. I mean I would say a… Continue reading Unmet expectations
To say this has been a rough week is an understatement. I have been frustrated with somethings, annoyed with others, and physically sick and tired on top of it all. I'm just flat worn out in all the ways. God and I have had a lot of conversation this week. If you don't hold conversations… Continue reading Is it even raining?

I think when I think about the question, where are we going, I almost want to pose… Continue reading Where are we going?
The end of the year always brings contemplation. What did we learn this year? What do we hope to do next year? As one of my people and I start planning our "Goals Weekend" for January (more on this later), I think it has made me think more about this year and where we're headed.… Continue reading Still learning (again)
