Just so yโ€™all know. If I ever respond to a social media post, text, or whatever, and say that I am praying, I have literally prayed for the request before I post that. ๐Ÿ™

If you’ve read books like Toxic Charity, When Helping Hurts, or Practicing the King’s Economy and want to know what’s next, please contact me. I’m forming a team to bring social enterprise & evangelism to Nashville. Big thinkers and entrepreneurs wanted!

Be pruned. Let God cut back that which is dead, that which is growing astray. Eat this meal, stand in his light, and marvel at the new growth his Holy Spirit will pour into your life.


My two year old daughter just told me I had to put the toilet seat down. The indoctrination starts young!

Iโ€™m becoming a single-issue voter in local elections. I live downtown in a major city and itโ€™s ridiculous that I need to own two cars. I donโ€™t leave Nashville all week. I should be able to safely get to church, coffee shops, and soccer without a car. ๐Ÿšฒ ๐Ÿš‹ ๐ŸšŒ

I kicked the temp down to 72 for some guests. Donโ€™t know how people do it. So cold in here! ๐Ÿฅถ

Love my city. Love my team. โ€” Win or lose. โšฝ๏ธ

Found in my record collection: Andraรฉ Crouch and the Disciples. Very much my jam! ๐ŸŽถ

Prayers appreciated for Rosemary who has a minor dental surgery (lip tie release) today. ๐Ÿ™

For August, I’ll be doing OT readings from New English Translation of the Septuagint. I’m still undecided on what I’ll try for NT.

The month of July has been spent with the NET Bible with full notes. The notes are fun. I’m surprised it’s not more popular with Baptists and other evangelicals.

Ich kann es nicht glauben! Bier aus Kloster Andechs ist zu verkaufen in Nashville! ๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช

In some shower thinking yesterday I realized thereโ€™re folk who are super against animal shelters that euthanize but very pro-abortion. Mind blowing combination when you think about it!

Excited to see something other than tomatoes growing in the garden. Weโ€™re about to have a lot of cucumbers!

If you know of anyone in an emergency situation or who is looking for a loving family for their child: The Arnold’s are home studied and prepared to take another baby boy into our home at a moment’s notice. ๐Ÿ‘ถ

As many of y’all know, we’ve spent the last two week involved in an emergency adoption situation that has now fallen through. โ€” We’re sad, but God has used this opportunity to prepare our home to adopt sooner than we’d planned. ๐Ÿ‘ถ

The last few weeks have made me, more than I already was, grateful for those who gave up so much and worked so hard to bring the ACNA to fruition. โ€” Our province has its warts, but I am thankful for clear cannons, faithful bishops, and courageous clergy.

Prayers appreciated today. I canโ€™t give full details, yet, but a lot of decisions happening today that can completely change the lives of a lot of people. Praying for Godโ€™s guidance and that he makes the way clear before us.
