Now, I am about as big of a Star Wars (the original trilogy in particular) fan as you can find so do not take this post as a criticism of one of cinemas greatest achievements. It is not that. I was introduced to the guys at Bad Lip Reading by one of my former residents … More A Better Star Wars???
On April 14th, 2016, I backed my truck up the little pop up camper that my wife and I bought last year, latched onto the hitch and drove away from the last six years of our lives. We had worked as house parents at Baptist Children’s Home in Carmi, IL for a little over half … More Patrick Henry Family Services
I read an article one time on the discipline of gratitude. It was suggested in this article that we should spend time every day listing at least 5 things that we are grateful for. I have done this in the past in my personal journal but I thought I would take some time on here … More Be thankful

So, I have been incredibly inconsistent with my posting for the past few weeks and I wanted to apologize to anyone who might actually be interested in how frequently I post on here. Our work schedule has been fairly hectic and irregular over the past two weeks as we are shuffling our days on and … More Catching up…..
Last night, I was reading this article entitled, “Five Signs You’re In Debt Denial” by Stefanie Oconnell. In this article, she unpacks what most of America is dealing with on a day to day basis. How do I get out of all of this debt?
I have had so many moments in my life (many of them after I got married) where I have decided that I was going to make some changes that I have lost count. Change can be a good thing right? As long as it is a change that is beneficial. Why, then, is it so … More A healthier me…. and you.
Okay. I wrote about my family and I’s road trip from last week and I hope you all got to see the pictures that we took from the Staunton River Battlefield Memorial Site. That was definately a neat trip. This time around, we headed south towards North Carolina. I was on duty to work on … More o4/30/16 – Random Virginia Road Trip #2
