I’m only responsible for me. Which helps when you have no idea what’s going on.

I've been listening to a lot of podcasts and sermons recently. I have a few pastors and teachers that really challenge me to be the best person I can be. I've been trying to take this seriously in how I relate to the people around me. I know I have blind spots in how I [...]

Granny passed away, my Great Aunt became ill, our oldest son is in a serious relationship, and as you all know, the world has kind of exploded with this COVID-19 epidemic. I'm now working from home, along with helping six kids with their schoolwork. There are days when I [...]
