When we say “Black Lives Matter”, what does that mean? It’s been a phrase that’s united millions of people across the world, and yet, the phrase has been villainized by […]Read more "Black Lives Matter."
(3 Minute Read) In spite of nearly every person on earth offering up their opinion on the coronavirus, I want to give you mine. This will be a quick post because I don’t want to add to the noise and the clutter of life, so if you feel overwhelmed by the amount of opinions you […]Read more "Me, You, and the Coronavirus"
(7 minute read) I think the best moments of life often come while we are sitting around a table. John Mark McMillan once said that none of the accomplishments of life, “feel as good as sitting across the table from somebody, telling a story, laughing a little, crying a little, raising a glass and hearing […]Read more "The Table"
(5 Minute Read) I wrote this last September but I was scared to share it. My hope is that you’ll receive it with grace.

What I mean is that science and […]Read more "Homesick"
I turned twenty-three last weekend, and the days leading up to it I couldn’t help but reflect on the previous year. Year twenty-two was full of so much growth. Growth within myself and how I see myself; growth in relationship with people; and mostly (most importantly) growth with our Father and how I perceive Him […]Read more "Twenty-three"
This is a pretty personal post but I think it’s one of those things that I just need to share.
