Kid's Hope

I mentor a 3rd grade boy. I'm amazed at how much a difference is made from such little, but faithful and intentional time.

Check out the video. My friend Scott is trying to get a million people to watch it - so please pass it on!

Reading and Writing.

I just got done reading Andy Merritt's book "Eden." It was a good book. Face paced, interesting story, good tension, and interesting concept. I recommend it.

Andy is a church planter from Jackson, MI. He and I get times to connect and I think it is cool that he wrote a book and had it published. That takes guts. That takes discipline and a willingness to put yourself out there.

One of the goals I have this year is to create something I can be proud of. I'm working on a couple ideas and thoughts, but we'll see where it lands. Andy inspires me to turn the ideas into actual action.

Anyways - I hope you take another step closer to taking action on your dream.

What to do with you old friend?

Well - back in the day... like 2003 this place was humming.

Ideas, quotes, stories, and all kinds of life stuff.

But now I even forget I have this blog.

So - I think something has got to change.

Twitter and Facebook have taken over what this used to provide, but maybe there's still some room for something. I'm just not ready at the moment. So - I'll chill for a bit and gather some thoughts and let you know (for those who still lurk) what is up.

I may wash this clean and jump into a new pond where the water is a bit more fresh and the fish more interesting. Although it is always good to look back and watch the journey unfold - after all this was a huge time in my family's life...
