Looking for a #homeschool  conference or convention in the northeast? I've got a list. Know of any that are missing? Let me know.
It’s that time of the year again. Time to start thinking about homeschool conferences and conventions. Here in the northeast United States that means a break from the snow (hopefully) and an opportunity to look to the year ahead. Defining “the northeast” can be tricky. Most people include New England and Mid-Atlantic states. Others add …

Introduction

I'm a Husband, Dad, Podcaster, Blogger, Writer, and Speaker.

Every day I struggling follow Jesus.

Since I was a kid I've loved technology. My dad used to take me to work with him. He was a computer operator in the Army.

These days I binge on social media and Netflix. I've been married for 17 years and have 7 awesome kids. We homeschool them. Well, my wife homeschools them and I try to help.

We're all trying to find purpose in life. I'm trying to make sense of all of this here on this blog.

Join me as I struggle for purpose in my relationships, work, and play.

Podcasting since 2005, father of 7, husband to 1. I once ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich full of ants.
