Uncle Bob

Family Christmas tradition includes spending 3-4 days between Christmas and New Years in Tennessee visiting my brother’s family – Mike, Dorine, and Eddie.  We do a lot of “nothing” and enjoy every minute.  And each year’s trip would not be complete without seeing our Uncle Bob, now 88.  This year he schooled all of us at […]

12Stone Church

We love our church.  The leadership is top shelf.  The pastors are talented, dedicated, and grounded in humility and God’s priorities.  The “production value” (that is to say, the professionalism and impact) of each worship service is nothing short of stunning when considering that 90%+ of the production crew and worship talent are volunteers.  And […]

Project 365 – Day 116 Friday was a huge day!  My youngest was proposed to, so we have a wedding in our future!  I was away Friday, so I didn’t get to hug her or grab a quick photo.  Saturday was a “bust” as well because she had to work into the evening.  So FINALLY […]
