Throwback Thursdays are that time of the week where I look back at something – either from long ago or last week – to gain perspective. 2006-2019 I have worked at CityChurch for nearly 13 years.

So in this new year, I want to do real things. Join me!Continue reading “New Year, January 2019 – Let’s GO.”

This Bruce Lee Quote is the beginning of the book, Declutter Your Mind. “It’s not a daily increase, but a daily decrease. Hack away at the in-essentials.” -Bruce Lee What do you need to cut out of your life? (I have been working through the book “Declutter Your Mind” and making art based on its content.
