Location, Location, Location

There are a lot of considerations when it comes to looking for a new home. A real estate agent will no doubt hammer home the importance of location, location, location!

Out of Breath

When I was in high school, I ran a few seasons of cross country. And by ran, I mean I moved at my maximum speed while simultaneously feeling like I was one step away from total collapse. Especially on Mondays. On Mondays, our team would pile in our high school sports van and trek to...

Mary, Joseph, and Jesus Were No Strangers to Lack of Accessibility

Struggling to find a place of belonging due to a lack of accessibility is not new to families affected by disability or Jesus. This is clear in the Christmas story. One of the most memorable parts of the story is there not being any guest room available to them. Luke 2:7 says: She gave birth...

The Line in the Sand

I think a lot about this photo that I took at Camp Freedom. To the average viewer, it is most likely your typical camp beach photo loaded with sunshine, happy clouds, and happier people. I am not here to dispute that, because the photo is certainly all of that to me as well. Yet, if...
