I Hate My Weight

Warning: A bit of self-disclosure in this article. After my high school sophomore season in football, I chose to dedicate my time to becoming a better baseball player. This means I did not play basketball. This also means that I was not as active as I would have been. I slowly began to gain weight,…

Who Am I?

The question "who are you?" can be answered in several different ways. Depending on the person and the nature of the relationship, I can simply tell the person my name or even what I do for a living. Even when we are silent we tell others about ourselves. When I was completing my undergraduate work…

Leaving Your Legacy

Before I put on my tux and my wife slipped into her dress, I thought it would be a great sentiment to purchase a Bible for us both. I knew I would be able to customize it to say, "Logan & Jessie June 27, 2014." After it was completed, I looked at the Bible and…

Thinking Out Loud

As I begin this sentence, I am not planning on this post being very long (things always change though). The last two days have been wonderful and difficult all at the same time. I am sure a lot of people have these types of days. It has been difficult in the sense that my "day…

Radical Together

An encouraging word every single day can make any day turn around in an instant. Unfortunately, I do not always have the time (or energy) to open up my laptop and write a formal encouraging word of the day every single day, however, most of us possess a book (sometimes multiple and in many versions)…
