The gifts are starting to pile up. So far 53 families and 100+ kids will receive presents, clothes, and food this holiday season. We are blessed to be a blessing. It’s a sign if hope as we stand together.
Sitting preparing for months worth of worship with my Beloved. Her love and strength steady me when I’m woozy.
TLO is in the middle holding hands with her cousins as we watch the sunset over Kuaui a couple of years ago. This moment and their relationship is the definition of holy.
This is a photo of TLO’s first friend Turbo. We are walking to our car from a softball game in Bend, OR. Those summer nights and the relationships we built and the fun we had were and are a delight.
“There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why…but I dream of things that never were and ask why not.”- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Wisdom tar leads me to keep asking why.
This is a photo from my first day as a parent a little less than 4 years ago. I feel like I’ve been awake ever since. Staying awake to the beauty around me and the need that surrounds me is humbling as I pastor a church and partner with Beloved to raise our children.
