Time in California

Last month Blaire and I wrapped up our final classes for our second year at seminary! We then traveled to California to see family. We loved every second of our trip (aside from my root canal and the titanic dead leg I received from my younger brother, Eric, upon arrival). It was great as always to see our friends and family in California and to worship with them at The Shoreline Church.

Lastly, this is my beautiful mother, Karen. She has been busy decorating the yard this spring. Blaire and I can’t wait to see it next month! We will be in Pennsylvania visiting friends and family from July 19th -24th. This will be an important time for us to visit our friends at St. Paul’s Church and for me to completely destroy my younger brother, Eric.

Our Favorite Quotes Right Now…

“Time is no guarantee of wisdom. You can grow old and die a fool… If you’re learning everything the hard way, you might want to ask yourself if it’s possible that you’re hardly learning.”
– Erwin Raphael McManus, Uprising

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
– Theodore Roosevelt & Brené Brown
