Recently a new friend of mine, Justin Trapp, send me an email asking if I’d be willing to share my story on his 30 in 30 program. The whole concept, WHICH I LOVE, is Justin taking 30 days to interview 30 different influential leaders and I was honored to be invited to talk with Justin.

What Are You Looking Forward To?


So, I’m 32 today. I have been looking forward to this day for the past month. It’s arrived I’m absolutely giddy. It’s not the first birthday I’ve been fired up about:

8 (I could ride a horse by myself)
10 (Double Digits)
13 (Teenager)
16 (Drive)
18 (Excuse myself from high school)
21 (Able to buy alcohol… not that I drink, but still)
25 (Rent a car anywhere)
30 (I’m really not a kid anymore)

What is so special about 32? Why would 32 make the list? It’s less about my age and it’s more about the day.

I am an dreamer at heart. The older I get the more I dream. If you’re a friend or acquaintance of mine or if you’ve been following me online for any good period of time, you know that I’m always working on something. I’ve always got some new idea on my brain. Are they always good ideas… no… but they’re still brewing.

What I Learned from Back to the Future

A list of “what I learned from Back to the Future” could be endless. A shorter list might be “what you can’t learn from Back to the Future.” Instead of focusing on the many lessons that Doc and Marty can teach us, there’s just one that I find most helpful.

Your choices today have a direct impact on your life tomorrow.

Baby Isaac Is Home


In short, baby Isaac is home. That is the answer to the question I’ve received more than any over the past week and a half. In fact, we were able to bring Isaac home on January 17th. It was four days earlier than expected and not a moment too soon. We are grateful for the staff at Mercy Gilbert and the attention they gave our little preemie, but we are thankful to be home, together as a family.
