Meet Elva

Posted on March 5, 2009

  This is my mother-in-law, Elva. I've known this sweet lady since I was 15 years old. She knows me just about as well as anyone does. 83 years old, and she hasn't had a bit of cosmetic surgery. Amazing! Most of us can only hope to look half as good if we make it to 83. By the time Lisa is this age, I'll probably be gone. She'll be onto her 2nd husband. And she'll look back and...

The Dog Days of Summer

Posted on August 6, 2008

It's hot. I'm talking triple-digit, boiling lava hot. And I love this time of year! Over the past several weeks, Lisa and I have gotten to spend some time in Miami and the Fellowship campus there, writing, relaxing and getting ready for the coming fall. (Of course, I've done a little fishing too. You didn't think I'd go to south Florida and not try to catch a fish or two, did you?) One project that we've been working on is our new book about ...

Posted on April 19, 2008
