The Peril of Faith

The Peril of Faith

About a quarter way into my hike, I realized that this was the most adventurous, dangerous, and stupidest thing I’d ever done. I was ascending to the 5,249 foot summit of Mount Lafayette, and after four miles of being bored into the mountain ridge and frozen through...
The Laughing Bright Eyes

The Laughing Bright Eyes

Today marks the first birthday of our son, Isaac. A boy born to us earlier than expected, and a boy quiet different than Owen. He has been, to say the least, more “relational” than Owen – desiring, for example, cuddles at 2am. One of the most...
A Golden Thread Running Through All

A Golden Thread Running Through All

I’ve been lately reading some on prayer – having lately been convicted regarding how little prayer there is in my own life. It reveals that I am not a dependent man before the Lord, and thus not really living like a Christian. I think I’ll be sharing...
Church Planting with Baby Jesus

Church Planting with Baby Jesus

December 2013

I will be doing a series of posts to catch you up on the last few months of our family life. Instead of a post for each event, I’m going to do a post for each month to get things rolling again. December was a full month for us. We spent the first half of the...
Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving 2013

We stayed here in Louisville for Thanksgiving. Most of the other Pastors College families stayed in town too so we all decided to do Thanksgiving together. We were able to use the Pastors College offices as the location which meant that one person didn’t have...

Just after Isaac was born a friend of ours here offered to take newborn photos of him. I thought I would share some of my favorites with you! I believe Isaac was two weeks old when these were taken....
