What If I prayed before work lunch meetings

My day job is in sales and I typically email or call clients asking them to join me for a quick cup of coffee or lunch visit near their offices.  Over the past few months I’ve had success by sending an email, then calling with some information I think they will find valuable.  After they…

Suggestions for Redbox

For this Technology Tuesday I’d like to offer Redbox some suggestions about their Kiosk service. 1.  Have a separate compartment for returns I don’t know if this is even possible since there are so many Kiosks out there but how many times are you standing in line waiting for someone to pick out a movie when…

“say it: I am good at..”

Monday nights are basketball and prayer night for the family.  Typically I come home and we eat an early dinner followed by hoops in the garage on a six foot fisher price rim.  After 30 or so minutes of basketball we have the kids take a bath then get together for family prayer.  Tonight Luke…

O Lord You’re Beautiful

I’ts a little after eight AM and I’m sitting in a cabin at La Push, WA watching the waves crash on the beach. The sun is just peeking through the clouds and again I’m reminded just how beautiful the Lord is. There are those that don’t believe in God. Remarkable. Have they been to a…

to La Push and beyond!

Today Lindsay and I are celebrating Valentine’s Day a week late with our annual trip to La Push, WA. We stay at the Quileute Resort right on the water and over the years several other couples have joined us.  This year we have three couples joining us.  On our way to La Push we are…

It’s too hard? So what!

My body aches this morning. Could barely get out of bed. The thing about getting old is you can’t really do the things you used to do all the time.  Recovery is slooooooow.  I’m a basketball junkie and this week I played Tuesday morning and Wednesday night. Combine that with lifting weights and cardio my body…

Technology Tuesday: Map My Walk App

Lindsay and I found a calorie counting app called MyFitnessPal and really like it (I’ll have to write a blog about that app sometimes).  I’ve lost 12 pounds and Lindsay has lost 5 pounds in less then a month. It’s a simple app where you put the amount of food you eat verses the amount…

Ever have one of those days?

Ugh, tonight was not a good night. I got home and was especially irritable.  Don’t know why but my five year old son still being afraid of turning on the bath water set me on the crabby course. I hate the crabby course…especially on the night we have family devotions. Maybe it’s that I didn’t eat…

Believe in yourself

Our family is going to Great Wolf Lodge this spring and Taya J has been asking about spending money and what she can do to get some.  I’ve offered her a $1 for every rebound she gets and $2 for every shot she makes.  She had a different look in her eye for today’s game…

The Heart of a Lion

I’m just getting home from spending a few hours in the hospital.  My dad suffered a heart attack tonight but we got him to the hospital in time and it looks like everything is going to be ok. What’s interesting is he has a very strong heart, just damaged arteries.  Why this is interesting is because…

Oops I (almost) did it again…

It was 13 years ago today that I saw a group of adorable puppies. I mean come on, how can you resist these faces?  Well I didn’t and I hadn’t ever raised a puppy so why not right?  Truth is I was 29 years old, had a good job, rocking band, led the junior high…
