Calm.

Tomorrow begins my sixth camp experience with Willow Student Impact.  Over the past three years, I've led a small group, ran graphics, and most recently, tech directed.  It has been a crazy adventure of ups and downs - laughs and tears. Every camp, there's a moment during the weeks preparing for camp when panic sets ...

It’ll all work out…somehow.

The past three weeks have played directly into my newest mantra: "It'll all work out...somehow."  The world of church production is constantly walking the line of knowing what's going on, and running with changes.  There isn't a single Sunday where earlier plans are always followed to the T.  Changes are expected. When it seems like ...

Only God.

Working for a high school ministry is an ever evolving adventure. Today's adventure was learning the importance of fully relying on God.  Buckle up.  It's quite a ride. Earlier in the week, I met with my compadres about this weekend's service.  There were a lot of moving parts.  For one, we had the student impact ...

Grace and Baby Steps.

For the past month or so, I've had the privilege of being in a stellar small group with some friends from Willow Creek Huntley.  Lately, we have been diving into some curriculum from Max Lucado all about grace.  One of the big quotes Max uses about grace is this, "Grace is the voice that calls ...

Over the past two ...

January. Week 1.

Not only  has this past week been the first week of January, the first week of 2013, and the first week of the rest of my life, it has also been a glorious adventure. In the past week alone, I have started a new job, not been on any kind of social media, have started and ...

In Search Of Adventure…

This past week has been full of a myriad of experiences. On Christmas Day, my family and I literally sat around all day and watched movies. The next day, we slept in, and went to see Les Miserables (I did go to the dentist, so...that makes me somewhat productive). Basically, we have been vegging around ...

Make It Look Intentional

Back in high school when I was taking guitar lessons, I distinctly remember my guitar teacher, Roger Pitts, was telling me about a gig he had coming up where he needed to do some things that he wasn't exactly used to doing.  His comment was something along the lines of, "If I do it with ...

Flashback Friday: For Your Enjoyment.

I wrote this during Christmas break of 2010, and decided to bring it back.  I hope you enjoy this short blog of nerdiness. 🙂 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I title this, "The Simple Joys of LIfe." by: Joy Bork. Where has simplicity gone? I'm not sure, but I sure do enjoy the "Simple" pleasure of typing on my ...
