A Letter To Branches
on March 25th, 2021

I had recently found myself in the darkest, most destructive season of my life and it was in the midst of that darkness that I encountered a love so deep, so real, and so unequivocal that I had no choice but to pursue it with every ounce of energy I could muster. Which at that point in my life, wasn’t much energy at all.

Fair vs. Favor
on March 4th, 2020
"Dad! He's not being fair!" "Mom! Why do I have to? It's not fair!"With four kids living in our house, we have the "fair fight" daily! Usually multiple times a day. If you are like me, I get exhausted hearing the same complaints multiple times. My patience wears thin, and eventually, I end up snapping back with, "Life isn't fair! Get over it!" And if your kids are anything like mine, you know that...
