Fix Your Focus

I love reading the bible. It is full of so much wisdom and life application. I feel like there are so many mistakes I made as an adult that I could have avoided if I had a stronger understanding of God’s word when I was younger. Unfortunately, I can’t jump […]

Navigating the Storm

Growing up in Michigan I have been on my share of lakes. The state is essentially a peninsula and surrounded by water. I grew up on Lake Ogemaw in West Branch and even though we didn’t own a boat, most of our neighbors had one. There were times we would […]

The Front of Your Jersey

Sports have been a passion of mine since I donned my first jersey for West Branch Little League back in 1982. I remember being so excited when the coach was passing them out and I probably wore it for an entire week. The jersey itself wasn’t anything special to look […]

The Uphill Climb

The outdoors is a passion of mine and I love spending time in the wilderness. The quiet of the forest relaxes me and the smell of pine trees invigorates my soul. I enjoy taking long walks with God and having quiet time with Him. I seem to hear his voice […]
