When Your Dreams Change

By | Blog, Random Ranting, The way I see it | No Comments
In June of 2014, I began writing a book I called “Landmark”. I’d always had a dream to write and publish my first book before I was 30 (more on that later) and I decided that summer was the time to knock it out. I started just throwing up words on the page, and created a rough outline and vague direction. This book would be about building a personal history with God, and mostly featured...

You Need to Rest

By | Blog, Somewhat Spiritual, The way I see it | No Comments

Rest is extremely underrated in today’s American culture. It’s funny, you don’t often see images in online success social media accounts using the word “Rest” over a screenshot of Will Smith in “The Pursuit of Happiness” or Leonardo DiCaprio in “Wolf of Wall Street”. Instead, we’re bombarded with mantras like: “Hustle. Grind. Repeat.” “Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” Don’t hear me wrong – I…

The Weird Trend

By | Blog, Random Ranting, Tech, The way I see it | No Comments

I’ve noticed a trend in marketing specifically with Christian authors, and it’s starting to bother me. I’m not trying to judge and this is not a slam – who knows, maybe one day I’ll succumb to similar tactics due to necessity of the market. I hope not. Obviously online marketing works, it’s an industry I work in, and I’m for it. I’m currently marketing to you and you don’t even know it! I mean, have…

Visiting with Lucifer

“You’re kind of a geek, you’d like it! Check it out, it’s hilarious.” Based on the recommendation of a co-worker years ago, I remember watching the TV show “The Big Bang Theory” for the first time when it was in Season 2. I loved it. I found it was hilarious, totally nerdy, and had just the right amount of “sitcom cheesy”. Bazinga! As season 3 started up, I noticed the show taking an increasingly dirtier…

Never Seen Star Wars? Start Here.

By | Random Ranting, The way I see it | No Comments

Star Wars TFA everything my inner teenage nerd wanted it to be. Awesome! On a related note, it has come to my attention that I keep some of the wrong kind of friends around here on FB – the kind of friends that have never seen ANY Star Wars…Shame, shame. If you are one of these wrong friendships in my life, and want to turn your life around by getting started on the Star Wars…

Why You Don’t Need Cable or Dish

By | Tech, The way I see it | One Comment

Growing up, we were never allowed to have cable…we got PBS and like the 3 other local channels over the air, and that was it. Not too many other entertainment options… But times have changed, and it’s possible to have access to great entertainment without having a cable bill or contract! I’ve shared this with a few other people personally, and most people that feel like cable or dish is the only option are pleasantly…

Recently, I began working on the Youth Alive team – a US Missions orginization. I’ll spare you the details, but if you’d like to know more, click here. It’s definitely led me to think differently in some areas…one being money. Missionaries live by faith off of monthly support – duh. They have a huge responsibility to be good stewards of the money their supporters are sacrificing for them…but, aren’t we all? Aren’t all to be…

iPreach, iServe

The iPad. Unless you’ve been living under a rock somewhere, no doubt you’ve heard of it. Apple’s long anticipated touch screen tablet has hit the ground running, with mixed reviews. I have no desire to blog from a gadget reveiwer’s standpoint – plenty of that has been done already. I simply want to put out my opinion on the table. “Big whoop – a bigger iPod touch with a retooled OS, more apps, and a…

I worked at Copeland’s tonight. Tonight, of course, being Valentine’s Day: a day servers in the food industry both love and hate. It wasn’t a bad night, money-wise. Good amount of business, good staff on tonight, and generally good tips. I’m not going to go into detail about the logistics of the food-service business: if you want to see someone who does, and is pretty humorous, check out my friend Jon’s page here. The only…
