  • Our first earthquake

    We were just finishing up a glorious Easter supper when we all said, “Do you feel that?” I looked to my right to see the chandelier rocking back and forth. It was about that time when Kristen and I both realized we were having an earthquake. It wasn’t violent. Our house swayed back and forth. […]

  • 5 Things I Love about my Church

    This Easter marks roughly two years since I turned in my Pastor Adam card and went from church staff to church attendee. (I was officially done June 1st, but it was during Easter week  that the offer to come to YS came, which completely changed everything.) In so many ways I’ve re-learned what it means […]

Like residents of most tourist destinations, very few San Diego residents regularly go to the tourist industries epicenter. I don’t know what […]

  • Guys Night Out

    Last Saturday, Paul and I had a guys night out. Mom dropped us off at the SDSU trolley stop and we rode down to Qualcomm Stadium for the home opener of the San Diego State Aztecs. Four quarters of football, the Sky Show, cotton candy, pop tarts, Pepsi, and other junk food later– this is […]

  • Little Italy Farmers Market

    Yesterday, the family spent some time down in Little Italy at their Mercato. It was super fun for mom and dad– the kids just kind of put up with it and were placatted by free samples. (Paul’s love language is food.) Here’s an exceprt from Kristen’s review over at Beyond the Zoo: Not just a […]
