How was your Pandemic Mother’s Day? I was super honored to get to preach in two services miles away from each other thanks to technology. My dear friends Pastors Tim and Linda Seidler were so kind to have me be a part of their Mother’s Day service at The Experience Church along with 4 other […]

The Real Deal

Confidants, Constitutes, & Comrades

Haters and Lovers…

Love you! Love you more! Love you most! Remember in high school fussing over who loved who the most? Those fun, sweet memories actually made me think back to more recent times within the past decade or so when I have felt like I loved more and most really wanting someone to match my love, […]
