the beauty of the ‘nook

The ‘nook is short for my home town, Minooka, Illinois. We ended Monday night with a rainbow and beautiful sunset – both taken from my front porch. The cactus flower is in the garden in front of our house. The sunrise is just a 2 minute walk from my home. What does the beauty around your home look like?

what i saw at starved rock

My day job is as a worship pastor. I have the privilege of working alongside a fantastic team of leaders and friends. Our team culture includes celebrating each other’s birthday. Each year we head out to Starved Rock State Park (a real gem of a place in the midst of the Midwestern plains) when my birthday celebration comes around. These images are some of what I saw today. Thanks for stopping by.

fall is great

This was taken during our annual staff advance at Devil’s Lake, Wisconsin. We had a great two days of training, planning, and dreaming. I work with a fantastic team of friends who are also my colleagues. Late October in Wisconsin can be cold, rainy, and harsh, but this day was an absolute gift!
