trimmersWhen you spend your life working hard to make things happen, you’re tempted to think you’ve earned every good thing you enjoy and deserve every bad thing you suffer.

Husband. Dad. Pastor. I like to capture moments, pull their threads, and see what unravels. Lead well, read well, think well. And grace. Lots of grace.
