The Curtain Call

I love the theater. I’ve always enjoyed the experience of the theater; dressing up, going out on the town with my wife, enjoying a nice meal at a fancy restaurant, and then capping the night off by watching a great production. There’s nothing quite like it. A few years ago, my wife and I were […]

Speaking Their Language

Lost in Translation Every time I hear the song “Good Life” by OneRepublic I’m immediately taken back to our Disney family vacation last January.

What season are you in?

What season is it? A few weeks ago I walked out of class and it was 60 degrees.  Seriously, 60 degrees in January… it was awesome.  I’m sure you felt the same way.  The sun was shining, I could feel it’s warmth on my face, and before I knew it I was dreaming of summer.  […]

Embracing Silence and Community

Embracing Silence and Community

How is your soul?

How is your soul?

How is Your Soul? It’s not a question you hear very often, especially at this early stage of the new year.  Usually the questions during this season focus on our resolutions, perhaps kicking a bad habit, dropping a few pounds, or accomplishing something on your bucket list.   But for a moment, let’s ask a different […]
