Last night, 59 missiles were dropped onto Syria by the orders of the President of the United States. In my mind, another war has just started. Or, perhaps, it may have begun years ago, when a nations President determined that he had the power to bomb his own citizens. Either way, in the past week, many… Continue reading A Light in a World Full of Darkness
"Talk, talk is cheap Give me a word you can keep" Lifehouse - Halfway Gone Like most individuals who were raised in the Church, I've never really had a time period in my life where I was unaware of the truth. However, I have definitely had more than one time frame where I knew the truth, yet… Continue reading When You Say Nothing At All
What if I approached you - where ever you are right now - and told you that, not only does someone know the exact plan for your entire life, but it's better than you could possibly imagine? You'd probably think I'm insane. No one knows your future, right? Wrong. God knows the plan for your forever. All… Continue reading What About the Here & Now?

However, unlike a "normal" windy day, the wind would throw me backward, then change direction and blow me forward, and then change direction - again - and toss me to the right and left. No matter how stiffly I… Continue reading When the Wind Blows

Then you feel his response, either within a dream or it literally just smacks you in the face while you're driving down the road. Only, it's not what you wanted to… Continue reading Let Go(d)

Okay, so I guess most people don't go out with my friend, but I think you probably understand what I'm getting at. Anyways, last night we decided to try out a different B-Dubs… Continue reading Wings, Waitresses, and God’s Grace
About three months ago, I applied for graduate school at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. Honestly, I decided to take a shot in the dark to see what would happen. After months of patiently waiting, I received an envelope in the mail. Not a large envelope, but a small one - the kind that means… Continue reading Today, God Said No To Grad School
