A Grander Vision

I dream of one day getting on a plane with Rebekah and flying to a foreign country. Perhaps Guatemala…I sure do love Guatemala. After we land, we eventually make our way through the airport – through baggage claim and customs – and outdoors, into the open sky.  Immediately we are caught up in the uniqueness … More A Grander Vision

Our Uber Experience

  For those of you who have been keeping track of our transition to Arizona, you know it’s been a bumpy ride.
