Hear the words....GET BACK UP by Toby Mac Tomorrow is a big day for me. I'm scared shitless. A day that requires a strength I'm not positive I have. Yet I'm committed to faking that strength if I have to. A day to speak-up, speak-out, and step-up. To use the tools I have; tearing down … Continue reading If I Had a Hammer…and a paint brush

I was working on a post this morning, having to do with the tons of fun in the sun trying to sell a house in today's market (yeah, right), when as often happens, a short sidestep away from the center line resulted in being led down another dirt road. But that's life, especially my life, … Continue reading For the Love of a Damned Good Conversation
