My hope in this blog is to speak to what a life lived for Jesus can look like. If this past year has taught me anything, it is that God does not abandon us in our times of need and high production and yet we may well ignore or minimize time with God. Even though I read the Bible cover-to-cover last year and am doing it again this year, there were times when I was not slowing down. There were times when I packed my schedule so full that I was exhausted when I spoke with God. The way of Jesus does mean spending time with God. I've missed the unhurried time. This year, so far and thankfully, is better.

Since the last post, I have moved my daughter, Madison, to just outside St. Louis, finished my dissertation, graduated with the doctor of ministry degree, made it through nearly a year of my wife Cile's unemployment, celebrated Cile's graduation as a Licensed Massage Therapist, walked my daughter Lauren down the aisle, begun chairing an evangelism committee in Tampa Bay area, and am preparing to celebrate daughter Christina's graduation from college. It's been a busy year.
