I have come to the fundamental understanding that I am LAZY! I even googled it! I WikiHow’d the title “How to stop being a slob.” While we all joke about being lazy now and then it goes far beyond that. After much denial, I am ashamed to say I struggle with the sin of slothfulness or laziness. We’re past procrastination. I dream about accomplishing things that I never start. I miss deadlines. I am often late. I have a problem. Waking up is the beginning of my troubles; I am the type of person that sets the alarm 30 minutes early so I can hit the snooze button a dozen times. And don’t even get me started about how much wasted time goes into meandering about the rabbit trails of social media…

Today, June 8th, 2018 Christen has ended her tenure at her job. And a week out from that on June 15th, I will have ended mine as well.
It’s really dumbfounding to me on how we got here. Going from a possible restructuring of my job duties, or looking for something different, and now we’re packing it all up and heading 12 hours north.
We are excited to announce…
THAT WE BOUGHT A DOMAIN!
You can visit our website, which oddly enough, you’re reading right now…
But thankfully it’s a much shorter domain than the previous site. Be sure to bookmark http://www.SowCincy.com
The setting is 2015. There are not many times that Christen and I get to go out but when we do we make the most of it. When you have zero children as a married couple, you go out all the time. One child, you might take them with you if you can’t find a sitter, but when it’s MULTIPLE children…well that’s an adventure to find a sitter within itself.
Coming to Ft. Worth was a Christian concert extravaganza that tours all over the country with big-name headlining acts. I gave Christen the duty of finding us a sitter because if it was up to me I would be scouring the pages of Craigs List.
Side-note if you have watched The Kids (TM) for us, we are highly grateful. Continue reading
Do you know your neighbors?
When I was growing up we did. My best friends growing up were the neighbor kids Marky and Alysha. To be honest I still remember their phone number because of all the times I would call it to hang out with them. They had a really big yard that we would play in and there was one part of their yard that had really steep “hill.” I say “hill,” but it was just a ledge that you could ride a bike up really fast to try and do a jump. I remember playing wiffle ball in the front yard and using the bush by their driveway as the plate/catcher. I also remember the time Marky and I got in trouble because we were throwing rocks at a guy on a bicycle. Kids are stupid. Continue reading
Do you know who does church better than churches? Bars.
I come from a small town that definitely has the same amount of churches as bars, or the same amount of bars as churches. I grew up in a church where the social hall of the church was directly above, maybe even owned and operated by, a bar. Continue reading
Let me paint you a word-picture. My wife and I both have our degrees. Two, stable jobs with benefits. A rented living space that we don’t have to put extra money into because we just call the landlord. The Kids(TM) are in a great school and day-care. All of the bills are, guaranteed, to be paid…at some point in the month. And my stress levels aren’t too high. Continue reading
In my mind, I’m usually thinking of labels, or plans, or visions. I don’t know if it is because I should have tried to go into marketing, or because I have an infatuation with Shark Tank, or because I enjoy connecting people and things. I’m very similar to Michael Scott from The Office. Continue reading
If you watched our video (and if you haven’t go do that now) you now know that we’re uprooting from Dallas to do full-time missions in Cincinnati Ohio.
We need lots of prayers! Pray for our marriage, for the Kids (TM), and for God to use us in unfathomable ways to impact the community that we will be serving.
