Jesus > Brand

https://videopress.com/v/TfsVDYaR?resizeToParent=true&cover=true&preloadContent=metadata I realized something recently. Simply put, I don't care about so many things the world cares about.

God and Cain and Abel

Photo by Ian on Unsplash I've been thinking a lot lately about the Biblical reality that God was more pleased with Abel's offering to Him than He was with Cain's offering. Many of you know at this point that I don't consume animal products. If you've read THIS POST then you'll know why. My goal … Continue reading God and Cain and Abel

Monk Mode

Monk Mode was a way for me to say no to some of the instant gratification I so often sought. I could say, "No, I'm in Monk Mode right now. I need to focus." It helped quite a lot.

Joseph, the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus

Photo by Walter Ch├ívez on Unsplash Writing Music Welcome back all. It's been a good spring break, but now back to the writing. I've got a lot coming down the pipeline but before all that I wanted to take a moment to look at Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus Christ.
