Pre-Post Self Check

Our small group has been discussing screen time. Not the Apple product, but just how much our screens impact our lives. One topic that came up was social media and the reasons why we share things there. I was reminded of a list of questions I came up with last year. The idea is toContinue reading "Pre-Post Self Check"

Through A Mirror Dimly

It feels like it’s been ages, but we’ve begun meeting again with friends as a Life Group. We kicked things off with discussion about identity, based on a sermon by John Mark Comer.  I recently read his book, The Relentless Elimination of Hurry. SO. GOOD. Highly recommended read. Anyway, John led off his discussion onContinue reading "Through A Mirror Dimly"

Slave Or Subject

We’re often deceived into thinking that being subject to a king means to give up freedom and individuality. When I picture kings and subjects, I think mostly of movies where kings were rich and ruled with an iron fist and used poor peasants to do their bidding. That’s a filtered view though. It’s like thinkingContinue reading "Slave Or Subject"

Steam Boat Gulch

This weekend’s activities included sledding at Steam Boat Gulch. With us went one of our favorite families to adventure with… the McNeese crew. The skies were a beautiful blue with scattered puffy clouds and the sun was bright and warm. We had an excellent day with excellent friends.

Jump Creek January

Travis and I ventured out to Jump Creek again. We’ve hiked here before but I think it was in Spring time and we weren’t certain how much water would be flowing this time of year. To our delight, it was a beautiful waterfall, even now in January. It has been a relatively mild winter, andContinue reading "Jump Creek January"

Breath Of Fresh Air

Working from home has many great advantages. I’ve loved being able to work from home. To do my job, take care of our animals, and see my wife more often during the day. It’s been really nice. However, I’m really starting to feel the effects of rarely seeing anyone other than my wife and kids.Continue reading "Breath Of Fresh Air"

The Problem With Government

Let’s be honest. There’s not just 1 problem. But as I see it, the biggest problem is this: As soon as the government goes beyond protecting “life, liberty, and the freedom to pursue happiness”, it’s a giant game of generalization. It’s a futile effort to apply the same rules to everyone… equally… everywhere. The reasonContinue reading "The Problem With Government"

React and Third Party Scripts

In many React projects, there often comes a time when you’ll want to integrate with a third-party service that uses their javascript. Maybe it’s an analytics or tracking service, or a data or graphics provider like Google Maps. Whatever it is, injecting the external script can be tricky at the component level. It’s easy ifContinue reading "React and Third Party Scripts"

Box Of Beauty

Box Canyon Springs is one of too many hidden gems in Idaho. When a thing seems oh so dry and pale and drear, you’d least expect that within lay a thing that you’d hold dear. If you explore and see what’s inside that draws another near, you just may find it’s full of life andContinue reading "Box Of Beauty"

Throwin’ Hay Bales

I remember a time in my life when I dreamed of technology, modern everything, and the life of ease and fun. My how times have changed. And not. I still love some those to some extent, but the desire for what I want my life to look like has changed. As I mature, I findContinue reading "Throwin’ Hay Bales"
