Great Visit with the Glahns

Great Visit with the Glahns

We had a wonderful visit with our friends Gary, Sandi and Alexandra Glahn this last week. My only regret is that we didn’t have more time or that I wasn’t so scattered.

Two Ways to Improve Your Writing

There are two ways you can improve your writing in 2006. 1. Pray about finding a mentor. This is not always easy, though. When I lived in the Seattle area, I met a real-live author. I asked if we could meet for coffee. We did. But the relationship never took off as I’d hoped. Eventually […]

Our friend JR along with his wife Ginger and their two kids Neeley and Judson are planting a church in Manhattan. They packed up their lives in Texas, where JR was a teaching pastor at Lakepointe Church, and are now city dwellers, pioneering a redemptive work. JR is one of the funniest people I know, […]
