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.

I remember playing wiffle ball in the front yard and using the bush by their driveway as the plate/catcher.

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.
