Don't you love when a great podcast pops up in your feed? My friends Juli and Hannah invited me to join them on Authentic Intimacy waaaay back in December.

I Have This Theory.

I have this theory.  It's tested but unproven, and I'll never know if it's true as long as I'm on this side of heaven.  But in all the ways that theories come to be, I believe I hold a solid contention. My theory is this. When you lose someone you love, when they get to […]

That's Some Serious Staying Power

When death comes at the end of a long life, we don’t wonder if it was time. We don’t wonder if God is good. But when death comes unexpectedly to a child or a teenager or a young parent, it is hard to believe that death can be a good thing. It is hard to […]

French Toast, Ice Cream, and Real Men

Nine Things I Learned from My Dad: 1. If you're going to get in trouble at school, let it be for talking too much to all of your many friends. Sociable is not a bad thing. 2. When putting together an outfit, choose the least noticeable color in the busier item, and make that your […]

Springtime Snow and Sad Days
