Lights Up The Sky


I am pretty sure that at least one of the reasons God breathed life into Mebski Love is that in the event that the sun ever stopped shining - her radiant smile could replace it for a good long time!

Because she certainly lights up the sky!

So grateful for this little girl and her spirit in my life.

The gift of being her daddy is never lost on me and it's something I thank Him for every single day.

Keep shining, Mebbie... KEEP SHINING!

Who Is Goofier?

Seriously though... who is goofier?

Z-Dogg or the cow?

Stay crazy, Zechie!

Retreat, Retreat!!

These two young ladies right here... geesh...

They have my whole entire heart!

Mebbie, Z-Dogg and I sat waving as they drove off to their first ever church retreat in the mountains... Meron as a student attendee (and leader) and Laura as a group leader.

So stinking proud of both of them...


A good friend of Meron's got to come along too and ride up with them!


It was an absolute joy, privilege, gift and pleasure to pray over these three before they headed out.

I just know they are going to grow and shine a bright light for Him in the process.

Way to bring Him glory, ladies!

Red Foxy


That's one happy camper right there and a dude after my own heart when it comes to stuffed animals!


Thanks to a friend - I was able to bring him back this guy from the conference I was just at...


and it was love at first sight!


He named her "Red Foxy" and I think he has himself a new sleep partner!


I love that his joy is this real around this little gal!

Never lose the stuffed animal love, Zechie!

Big Eyed and Goofy


When Meron was a baby we'd put our hands over her eyes and then pull them away real fast and yell:

BIG EYES!

Looks like our chief goofball still has it!


And her smile brings joy right along with it!

Stay silly and goofy forever, Meron!

Celebrated By Friends


What happens when one of your favorite baristas to ever touch a coffee cup finds out it's Meron Day?

She celebrates Meron with a bit of indulgence - that's what!

And Viv - why is Meron almost taller than you!?!

Thank you for loving our girl like you do!

Know History So We Can Change...


Washington, D.C. was an awesome trip... but it was hard too.

I love that we don't shy away from teaching the goofballs the REAL TRUTH of our country - the HARD truths - the UGLY truths - so we can ACKNOWLEDGE them and hopefully grow from them and make sure we can spot them when they start to creep back in to the world and threaten to happen again.

They're turning into strong, fierce little advocates!


And while they find a lot of our history appalling, disgusting and almost unbelievable (and rightfully so)... they are growing in understanding an developing a heart for equality and justice that is downright admirable.

They're the reason we fight - the reason we learn - the reason we research - and the reason we ADVOCATE.

Grateful for their spirit that is willing to fight... STAY STRONG guys!
