This blog is to provide my insights as a husband, father and follower of Christ. It is my hope that in each category, I am as quick to point out my failures as I am the successes.

In addition to this blog, I contribute to blogs at I Am Second, What’s In The Bible, Jelly Telly and Compassion International.

I also gave a mid-week update of some of the not-so-brilliant moments (HERE). It was an incredible week on so many levels. I once again was reminded who I am on the Outer Banks of North Carolina (AKA – Gods Country). My wife is a runner… Read More
We’ve had an incredible week here in The Outer Banks. Because social media can paint a picture, I find it very important to keep it real. I guess I felt led tonight to share some of the “behind the scenes” and real photos so no one thinks our vacations are all hearts and stars.
