Hey, friends! Figured I'd drop in and say "hi" and make another entry into this online journal of sorts. Here's what I'm into right now: Listening Max Pope "All That I Need" The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey Reading Renewal Theology by J.

It seems I've found myself in a hole that has taken me six months (I know, I gasped too) to find my way out of. I could blame our move (a whole five miles down the road) or my busy-bodied children, but it was mostly writer's block and laziness.
