Donald Miller describes life turns as those moments in which your life is never the same. Those moments in which you walk through a door you can never walk back through again. They can be a result of someone you met, a place you traveled, something that happened. And regardless of the instigator, this life […]
Pick Heavy. When given the choice. Always. Pick. Heavy. One week ago, I had my last weight training session before I travel to Las Vegas on Thursday to compete in the Worlds Weight Lifting competition. At the end of it, my trainer handed me this piece of paper with all of my suggested lifts listed (in […]
Lead with Love. I’m going to keep saying it. Sharing it. Hash tagging it. In darkness and in light. In fear and in safety. In anger and in happiness. In doubt and in certainty. In hope and in hopelessness. Wondering where to start or how to make a difference in this sometimes senseless world? Here. […]

You guys. Storyline. Such goodness was shared. So let’s get right to it… Life Lessons – Part Two: Pain is universal in a fallen world. It is not special to us. What we DO with it is special. We cannot overlook our own pain in life. Instead we should ask, what blessings can pain produce? How […]
Y’all. I’m exhausted, emotionally and physically from learning ALL THE THINGS at the Storyline Conference. The best way to characterize what I heard and learned the last several days is this: Life Lessons. There’s just so much goodness that was had there.
