the last night (first)

Spirit West Coast Day 1 rocked. Daniel and I drove down with Jana and Kelli (who are working at dip n dots). After a number of years as working media at the event, last year I transitioned to working mainstage production. It’s a lot of fun, and definitely one of the best jobs at the […]

throw up your rawkfist

Well today was exhausting. Rachel and I met at the church at 5:45 this morning and drove up to Julian to have breakfast at the coffeehouse on main st. It was definitely delicious. After that we stopped by camp and visited with Simon for awhile (love that guy) and then made our way back down […]

life as a soap opera

First off, God, thanks for an answered prayer. Second, I absolutely love life. Every minute of it. I wish that God would slap me in the face more often, like he did tonight, with the WEIGHT of EVERYTHING and force me to throw up my hands and say… it’s Yours, God! God seems to like […]

A Prayer about Tonight

God, give me diligence to do everything that I need to do. Thank you for giving me open access to your wonderful and everlasting love that fills me up and allows me to carry on in this crazy life. Lord, grant me the patience necessary to take care of what’s been set out before me. […]
