 Our family eats meat... and a lot of it. I put a pencil to paper for this post and figured out that we eat approximately 3 deer, 1 side of beef, 1 lamb, 1 pig, 15 pheasants, 5 turkeys, 15 salmon, who knows how many shrimp, and about 160 chicken breasts each year.

He made it feel that we were the honored guests for the following two hours.Knowing about his life and ministry has reminded me that … [Read more...]

Hyper-Hobbied, Pursuit-Driven Men

Do you want to help him find balance and purpose in life?I've had several people ask me what "Man on the Run" is all about...so here's a short description:We were all made to live lives of passion & pursuit. Yet, many men often chase their pursuits to the point that they break commitments and damage relationships.
