Going To Guatemala

Some of you may know that back in February my wife and I went to Haiti on a mission trip through Northwest Haiti Christian Mission (NWHCM). It was an amazing time where we had the opportunity to serve the people of Haiti. There was an eye team that was down there at the same time […]

Fit By Fourth Update

I was away on vacation and then had my infamous hatchet incident that you can read about here, so I never had a chance to post an update about my Fit By Fourth goal. We were supposed to write a letter to our future self and here is what I wrote… Todd, you did it! […]

Finding My Pace

While I am a runner. Although I haven’t run as much since I started doing CrossFit at CrossFit Ironside. When I talk about finding my pace I am not referring to a running pace. I am talking about finding pace in my life. Last year in June I transitioned into a new role at my […]

The Hatchet Story

I have been asked several times about what happened to my finger so I figured I would post it here for people to read all about… On Thursday, July 3, about 10:00pm I was cutting some firewood into smaller pieces to use as kindling to start the evening fire while we were camping with family […]

Those Darn Verse Markers

On Sunday, March 16, I spoke in my church about our spending habits. Before anyone gets nervous I want to put you at ease and let you know that I was talking primarily about our time. When I was in Haiti in February of this year as I was going through our team devotional that […]

Dayton WordCamp 2014

I am looking forward to learning a ton of stuff today at the first WordCamp in Dayton. I have a feeling that today and tomorrow will be like drinking from a firehose, but it will be fun to learn more about WordPress. One of the things that I need to start doing more is blogging […]

Little Big Man 2013

* Little big man. Big enough, small enough. Big enough to be God, small enough to be baby. Big enough to create the earth, small enough to crawl on the earth. Big enough to rule us, small enough to serve us. Big enough to know our names, small enough to know His name. “God with […]

18 Amazing Years

Today, I celebrate 18 years of being married to my best friend. Everyone always says that each year they feel that they are more in love with their spouse and I have to say that with me it is very true. However, I would also like to say that each year I also feel that […]
