Hi, I’m Wildman. These are my WildThoughts

Welcome to my personal blog. It's where I put stuff about my life as a husband, dad & pastor. I dabble in photography, video, travel, outdoor adventures, and social sciences, too.

Saturday is Dad-urday. While @s.d.wildman and the sweet and kind @stephaniehaddix worked on packing the kitchen, Chuck Bear, Ed Champ, and I hiked, dodged rain, and finished the day with s’mores. ⁣ ⁣ Charles is all about being a leader. “I want to be in charge,” he says. So, we talked about what it means to lead – to listen to others, to learn what they need, and to let them know how they can help each other. ⁣ ⁣ With that in mind, he got to go down the trail first and help us find our way back. ⁣ ⁣ #truth #dadlife #leadership #parenting
Few things are more beautiful than a life that represents Jesus. Few things are more damaging than a life that claims to represent Jesus, but does not truly reflect his heart. // #lifequotes #truth #love
The little buddies love “coffee milk” right now. I pour milk into espresso cups. We sit around the table and talk about whatever. I feel like one of the simple tragedies of life today is how infrequently we pause and talk with each other face to face. I’d like these guys to grow up with another idea of what’s normal.
Finally.... fancy food for the rest of us! 😂⁣ ⁣ #Repost @johnbcrist⁣ ・・・⁣ Introducing Red Apron: The Fast Food Delivery Service Disguised as Meal Prep

Never mind Mother’s Day.... this amazing woman deserves a Mother’s Week! Watching @s.d.wildman become a mother and grow into the job has been one of my life’s great joys. Bring her partner is one of my greatest reasons for gratitude. Chuck Bear, Ed Champ, and I have won the mother jackpot.⁣ ⁣ “Who can find a virtuous and capable wife? She is more precious than rubies.” Proverbs 31:10⁣ ⁣ #mothersday #boymom #truth #lifequotes #lovequotes #love

Why put together one large IKEA bookshelf when you can assemble four of them? Luckily, WildDog was on hand to supervise.

Three more? You're kidding me.

Three more? You’re kidding me.

When you’ve got a massive book storage problem, the only solution is to go to IKEA, right? And while you’re there, you really should spend 2 hours wandering the Swedish jungle only to select something that is being discontinued, right? And since you’re already going for the discontinued stuff, you want to be sure to get your heart set on something that’s out of stock. Because, it just wouldn’t be right for you to miss out on the experience of going back to IKEA early the next morning to get into fisticuffs with determined soccer moms over three rectangular boxes chock full of “assembly required.”

I mean, if you’re going to do IKEA, you’ve got to do it right.

But once we hunted down these sophisticated, European wonders of art and engeneering and drug them by their hair to our cave, at least we had man’s best friend — The Brown — to help us out.

Judging from the look on The Brown’s brown face, I doubt he’ll be wagging his tail the next time hears, “IKEA? Wanna go, boy? Wanna build stuff? Wanna assemble furnature? Go? IKEA?”

He’s not the only one. Next time, I’m not getting in the car to go to IKEA. Even if Sarah promises me a treat.
