Even if…

I’m falling into no specific rhythm or routine as I finish up my second week of a sabbatical-vacation in France. It’s hard to put in words why I’m here or what I’m doing. Some days it looks like staying in bed until 10, reading, sipping tea and a second cup of coffee. Other days it’s […]

Remembering: One Year Later

A year ago today we met for the first time in Atlanta, all expectant for what was to come but also very unaware.

The dawn barely breaks before I […]

Unified for His Glory

Back in August when my adventure of squad leading Gap G began, I started reading through the book of Ephesians. Though we’re now beginning month five of the race, the Lord constantly brings me back to this book. Constantly. And to the same bit of scripture as well. Paul writes to the Ephesians in chapter […]
