• The ‘tocayo’ of Christ 

    In my family we have two new babies: Lily Aaron and Zachary Jack. 

    Lily is my niece Jennifer’s third daughter and Zach is my nephew Shane’s third son. Both babies were born just a few weeks apart, Lily in July and Zachary in August. My sister now has six grandchildren. 

    If Lily had been a boy she would be Jack Aaron. 

    Jack is my dad’s name. Aaron is Lily’s dad Marc’s middle name. 

    Got all that?

  • Stuck

     Have you ever looked around and thought, “How did I get here?”   Have you ever looked down and realized that you’re not moving.

    The definition of stuck is “immobile, embedded, fixed, a place of hopelessness.”

    That definition describes where our lives can be without clear direction and clarity on how to get “unstuck.”
