  • My First Time Teaching

    I just got home from teaching at a youth group for the first time ever! I have to admit, it’s still slightly weird to me that someone would think of having me lead teenagers. Like, I’m barely out of my teen years, right? Then I realize: Right. I am 26. A decade or more older…

  • The 10-Minute Test

    As a psychological experiment, a friend challenged me to dialogue to him about anything that came to mind for 10 minutes straight. The catch? He would not react or reply.

  • Going Offline.

    It’s so easy to be completely wrapped up in all things digital. I make my living by operating a large company’s social media. I keep in touch with my family through the internet. Many of my dearest friends exist within the constraints of Facebook Messenger due to the miles that limit our in-person visits. I…

  • Blogging (For the wrong reasons!)

    I haven’t been blogging much in the past 12 months. For years it had been near-instinctual for me to be producing frequent web content.
