“It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?” ~ Henry David Thoreau Seems to me we’re all born yearning for purpose. We start asking “why” from the time we can talk and I don’t know about you, but I’m still asking “why” today. When […]
In the course of Project Pretend Move, I went through every single drawer, cabinet, box, and closet in our house. Every single one. I am aware of what is in all nooks and crannies and the things we kept we kept for a reason. We probably pared down 1/3 of our belongings- much of which […]

It occurred to me as I was lugging boxes and wondering whose bright idea moving the office was, that moving is like childbirth. It’s difficult to go through, […]
Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs it down, but an encouraging word makes it glad. Proverbs 12:25 The effects of encouragement is such a neat thing to watch. Our little dog Dutch gives me a picture perfect example of it every morning. Dutch loves to sleep. I mean, really loves to sleep. And he loves […]
We’ve been busy around here for the past few weeks packing and unpacking, painting, and cleaning, as we moved our Stroudsburg office from Ann Street to 25 North 8th Street- just two blocks away. The move reminded me of childbirth- it’s a big pain that you soon forget after it’s over, and when it comes […]
