So You’re Taking a Trip?

Most everyone likes taking a journey…but not all.  Travel for vacations and visiting family and friends are usually something we look forward to with anticipation.  However, there are some trips that we have wanted to forego, like to the dentist or the hospital and certainly to a funeral home.  As we get older, I think… Continue reading So You’re Taking a Trip?

How Teaching Yourself the Gospel Could Make You a Better Runner

I have always loved Hebrews 12:1-2! Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and finisher… Continue reading How Teaching Yourself the Gospel Could Make You a Better Runner

Be the Person God Created you to Be

The Life Jacket

Letting Go of the Boat Have you ever had that one endeavor, that one dream, or that one task that just seems so daunting?  I have.  A lot of them!  Ones that seem so far out of reach that they are like mere fantasies rather than things that could actually become reality.    God has… Continue reading The Life Jacket

Dying Breath

We never realize how good life is until we feel like we’re dying. Ever walk up the stairs and feel like you’re out of breath?  Ever go for a walk or exercise and feel out of breath?  Honestly that is the worst part about running in life.  I hate it when I run out of… Continue reading Dying Breath
