Don’t Wait!

As I was wandering around the house this morning doing my chores and thinking deep thoughts about the meaning of the universe, (more or less) I was suddenly struck by the fact that this, right here and now, is normal life. For some reason I have this mindset of always waiting for something. Once I... Continue Reading →


My friend wrote a book! Allison is someone whom I am privileged to know personally, and also an author. I tell you, given my love for books, a person who makes more books is pretty high on my list of People Who I Think Are Great. Allison Beery is a Christian teen with a passion... Continue Reading →

Evening Thoughts (2)

Hey. I'm just here to tell you that it's okay. Actually, I'm really just telling myself. I know things, but I have to remind myself all the time.
