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 and ...

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 find ...

Pie Experimentation

Over the years, I’ve enjoyed making cookies from time to time. I love the responses I get when people enjoy the delicious treats, and I love the homemade goodies myself too. Last year, ClickBank (the company I work for) had a pie making contest for Pi Day. So I tried something new and made a ...

I’ve desired a piece of land and a nice garden for a long time. We’ve also wanted chickens and goats and lots of other things that more property would support. It’s finally looking like that might become a possibility… more news on that to come. But while I continue to dream, I’ve been reading some ...

Computer Security

Today has been filled with video training on computer security. It’s all very good material, and vital for our employees to know. In all of the videos though, I learned one thing that seems very important… all computer hackers wear a stalking hat and eye mask. So be on the lookout, and stay safe out ...

Developer or Engineer?

I didn’t go to college to be a software engineer. Actually, I didn’t complete college at all. When I did go, my intent was electrical engineering. The problem was, I didn’t have scholarships and my grades sucked because I had to work so much to pay for the classes. Oh, and I was very unfocused ...

Justice – Social or Otherwise

I have mixed feelings when it comes to social justice. I know that God is just. Isaiah 30:18 says “…for the Lord is a God of justice, how blessed are all those who long for Him”. Social justice has gotten a bad name though. Lately, it tends to look like redistributing wealth, or fighting for ...

Fried-Day Night

We decided to try something new in our kitchen last week. We’d never tried deep frying anything before and thought it would be fun to give it a shot. My wife picked up a thermometer for putting in the pot of oil and we found some recipes that looked good. Honestly, I was nervous. Hot ...

What Is Love?

Love is a word that is used often in our culture. Many of us aspire to love well, and even more of us desire to be loved more than almost anything. Despite the myriad of songs, stories, and poems that try to explain what love is, it’s still hard to define. Is it a feeling? ...

Friar Freeman

Even not dressed up like a monk, you can’t help but see Pastor Mike Freeman as a seeker. His wealth of knowledge and unending humility reflects what must be a very real and personal relationship with God, and years of reading and listening. It is easy to acknowledge, but almost impossible to realize for long, ...

In A Mirror Dimly

I stepped onto the elliptical at the Y this morning. It was just before the sun came up when I got there. As I jacked up the music and got the machine set, I looked up through the window in front of me. The immediate view was looking into the lobby. Beyond that, another set ...

Love Without An Agenda

I love the way Bob Goff writes. “Love Does” was a great book for me. It encouraged me to seek out extravagant ways to love without condition (I’m not good at it yet, but still trying). He continues to write great things and inspire people to greater love. However, I don’t always agree with what ...
