Today I’m off to the Grand Canyon with some friends. Trips have definitely kept me busy, but it’s been refreshing to get out of the normal routine and to add a dash of physical activity (hiking) to the mental. I’ll be back next week with more posts and stories of epic journeys through God’s creation (hopefully). Until next time.

What he’s written is what he believes. What he believes is what he lives. I’m happy to spread the rumor.
