Hey Jonah, welcome to the storm……..

The story of Jonah is an interesting one that I heard retold in a sermon today. Jonah was a prophet of the Old Testament given the charge by God to preach to people in a town called Nineveh to help save them from destruction. Instead of accepting the mission from God, Jonah decides to head …

Cold Sweats……

Over the past several weeks I've been extra fatigued. I figured it is the time of the year and the extra energy I'm expending during the school day with teaching and coaching.

More than one word from 2016……

I realized I had been slacking somewhat in writing on my blog. I know most people started the year with their "One Word" that will carry them throughout the year. I've seen some great words chosen: growth, relentless, listen, caring, and perseverance to name a few. But because I like to do things differently, I …
