I promised I’d share about the rest of my transportation accidents in today’s post … though I’m sure now I won’t be able to fit them all in! There may need to be a part 3 or more. Parking lots are dangerous places … … particularly the parking lot of a high school! When I… Continue reading Planes, Trains & Automobiles – Part 2: Kissing the ground in Alaska
This morning there was a clever piece on The Today Show about actor Tom Hanks. (I think it came from a Chicago Tribune article titled: “Sully is the last straw: You should never travel with Tom Hanks.”) They warned: “Look at all the movies made about disasters that occurred as a result of his travels.”… Continue reading Planes, Trains and Automobiles – Part 1: “Look, ma, no seatbelts!”

I know my wife has been waiting with baited breath (whatever THAT means, I still haven’t figured it out!) for this entry. She also told me she has the right of first edit. But, that’s okay; I certainly don’t plan to say anything she wouldn’t agree with, I don’t think! I believe I’ve already told… Continue reading Our Love Story
God has given my wife and I a really wonderful and fulfilling ministry with young adults, both at our church, Elim, and beyond. (I’ll share more about that later in a different post.) We’ve engaged with many who are writers or who want to be writers and so they frequently seek my advice. And the… Continue reading The three Rs … well, maybe scratch the 3rd R
