My daughter Arwyn turns five this week, and I’m not sure that it’s possible for someone to be more excited about their birthday than she is. She's absolutely giddy about it. That might be because she knows our family is pretty big on birthday celebrations.
Sometimes I make things too complicated. I get this idea in my head that I have to do HUGE things for God, or they somehow don’t count. I hear about people moving to other countries to build orphanages, be doctors, or just learn a completely new culture in order to introduce people to Jesus.
Whenever I’m faced with uncertainty in life, I always get jealous of the people in the Bible that heard God’s voice audibly. I so badly want to hear the thunder crack and God’s unmistakably booming voice say: “Isaac, you need to do X and stop thinking about Y. ” Sadly, though, that doesn’t happen—at least not for me.
Don't you love when you're cleaning out your car, your purse, your wallet, and you find that forgotten gift card? That's a pretty good feeling, but you know what feeling is even better? Helping someone else. Maybe even with that bonus gift card you forgot you had. Let me explain.

"Sticks and stones may break my bones. " Chances are you didn’t even have to think about the rest of the expression. It’s one of those sayings that somehow we just know. We’re born, we learn our ABC’s, and then around the same time somebody also gives us that expression.
For a while now, being a Kanye West fan has felt like living in a really beautiful, really earthquake-prone area. Instability punctuates the beauty, and there’s always this sense of “things are great for now, at least.
I went axe throwing yesterday. Yes, that's a thing that people do now. Like, for fun. And no, it's not something I ever pictured myself doing. But there I was, with a small sharp object in my hand, and a wooden target in front of me. Somehow, I was supposed to make the two connect.
