Over Spring Break our family took a week-long road trip. We posted on Facebook some, and sent family a few pictures, but for the most part, we made a conscious decision not to post about the trip too much. That was partly out of not wanting to be annoying…

I think I’ve outgrown Of Life and Men. No, I didn’t sign a contract with a big publishing company, and I’m not giving up my day job teaching maths. I still want to write and explore truth, but my interests seem to be going beyond a site primarily about…

For most of my life I’ve tried to fit God and his desires for my life into a little box of my making, and oooh is it a comfortable little box. Instead of asking God to change my heart, renew my mind, and start a truly new life in him, I’ve mostly done it…
