so this hair thing …

Since deciding to take part in this “No shave November” thing, I’ve become acutely aware of hair.  It is incredibly weird where that stuff grows on your body.  Take these for example… Eyebrows … how weird when you stop to look at your face and you see these two patches of hair that just sprout … Continue reading

New do … and No Shave November

Sorry I’ve been absent the last few days!  But I’m back, and with a new haircut as well!  I go to Heather at Main Street Salon in Nixa.  She’s great, you should go see her.

If you need me on Saturday, I’ll be here. Our Africa team is spending the day together doing some team-building excercises, training, etc.  It is going to be a great day of learning each others strengths and growing as a team. I continue to become more and more excited as the trip approaches.  I was … Continue reading

Super cool Sunday…

I took the month of October to volunteer in our All-Stars area (k-5th) as a teacher on Sunday mornings.  So, this month we’re talking about determination …. “deciding it’s worth it to finish what you’ve started”. Last week we talked about Paul, and how he had determination when following God was hard . . . … Continue reading

… ran

(my feelings after a run) Well, I decided that before the “urge/inspiration” left me, I’d better go for a run, or else it might never happen!  So, I just got back from 2.5 miles down by sequiota park/nature center.  I love the run there. *note* If, during the next few days, I don’t show up … Continue reading
