Snow Day

Winter has finally come to North Carolina.  Last Sunday we had our first “winter storm” which was really just a little bit of sleet.  Today we are supposed to have another winter storm.  I think snow is fun to be in, but in North Carolina it is also kind of annoying.  People in North Carolina panic when there is even the slightest hint that there may be snow.  They rush to the grocery store and buy all the milk and bread, and then go home and get bunkered down like it is the end of the world.  But I think the worst part is that North Carolinians don’t know how to drive in a winter storm.

A New Perspective

Last week I had the chance to go with the team to Israel.  My expectations for the trip were really high, and they were all exceeded.  I have been fortunate to be able to travel to many places so far in my life, but none of them was as life changing as Israel.  Being in Israel brought the Bible to life to me in a whole new way.

No Doubt

This past week we were in Israel, shooting an episode for season 4. I could probably write many, many blog posts talking about the trip: all the things we learned, the places we went, and the huge blessing that it was. Make sure you see the Israel episode! Continue reading

My New Favorite Tunes

August and September are shaping up to have some monster music releases in them.  As I’ve discussed before, I am a music junkie, so it is rare that I can resist buying an album of an artist I like the day they release it.  Here are some notable new and upcoming releases. Continue reading

I’m Not An Athlete

Or at least that’s what I’ve always thought. As you might have read in my previous posts, I never exercised growing up. I’ve never played sports. My hand-eye coordination is seriously lacking, and I have the reflexes of a walnut.

Eu Não Falo Português

We are only weeks away from the mission trip to Brazil and I am getting excited.  I did not get to Peru last summer and have been itching to go on a mission trip since.  This will be my sixth mission trip and I think I am just as excited as the first time I went.  This is probably because I will never get bored with sharing Jesus with other people.

Walking Watson

A couple months ago, my parents got a new little dog from the SPCA and named him Watson. He’s a really good dog: he doesn’t bark, doesn’t have accidents in the house, gets along fine with other animals. He does not, however, like to go outside for walks.
