Well, my first tenting trip in America anyway. I did sleep in a tent in South Africa a couple years ago while on a choir tour, but it rained the whole time, so it wasn't the best experience ever. This time, we had beautiful weather! I want to share just a few pictures from the … Continue reading My First Tenting Trip
The Linguistics and New Testament Greek Conference was held at the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in North Carolina. I was incredibly privileged to be able to go with my brother Andrew (who is actually one of my Greek teachers), Joseph Neill (my primary Greek teacher), his lovely wife Sarah, and several of my classmates.

So how have I found God’s word to be alive in my own personal life? I’ve been through times when I would read the Bible and it felt … Continue reading The Importance of Scripture in the Life of a Christian
My mind is almost constantly running in a thousand directions at a ridiculous speed. It’s like a merry-go-round on steroids; everything flying around so fast I can’t properly think about anything in particular. Last week my mind ranged from hyper to clogged to empty, and I didn't know why. One of my dearest friends asked … Continue reading He Likes Me
"I'm so glad you shared... I'll be praying for you." It seems like the normal, or scripted thing to say when a friend or loved one comes to us with a burden or need. But will we pray?

This afternoon, I took a little walk down to the creek with my camera and tried to capture some of the happiness around here. Spring is coming! To say I'm excited might be an understatement.
