Tune My Heart

There are so many beautiful correlations to the Christian life. So much imagery that helps us see our need for God. Like the line in Come Thou Fount: “Tune my heart to sing Thy grace” I’m a musician, so I understand the challenge of an un-tuned instrument. It sounds awful, even in its attempt to… Read More»

Rethinking “Good”

Whenever asked, “How are you?” we have typical answers. “Good.” My answers too are pretty limited. But what qualifies “good” in my mind? What makes for a good day or a good week? I think, unfortunately, it mostly has to do with how I’m feeling, life going my way, my plans getting accomplished, or things… Read More»

How to Not be Stupid, Part 2

I love many things: dark chocolate, sunny days, chai tea, the beach, reading a good book and playing games with my family, to name a few.

How to Not be Stupid, Part 1

Growing up, the word “stupid” was almost considered a swear word in our house. If my brother or sister called me stupid, I was beyond offended. My parents desired to raise their children to honor the Lord and show love and kindness to others.  In their mission to teach us to love each other and… Read More»

Cultivating Love for God

I developed a love for photography from a young age. I received my first disposable camera as a gift to use during a family vacation. My photos were quite pointless. But it was a blast. A few years later I started doing mini “photo shoots” with my friends in the backyard, capturing the moments on my… Read More»
