Husband. Dad to 5. Student Ministry Pastor. Follower of Jesus. Yatta yatta.


I have been asked to write a book on balancing ministry on family life.  I had my first meeting about it today with the publisher.  I’m pretty stoked.

I can’t wait to share stories of my life where I got it wrong and a few places where I things turned out right.  But the truth is, in good and bad, I really love my family.  I feel really really really blessed.  I also was reminded as we talked how deeply I really want my family to know they come first.

Here’s some pictures from the latest events and my attempts to tell them as much with my time:

At a mens retreat, where I was the guest speaker and got to hang with my Dad and my oldest son TJ.   I also got to be with one of my best friends and my high school youth pastor too.  Love the generations and stories behind these pics.

At Becky and Billy’s 8 year-old birthday.  Billy went to inflatable world, in-n-out burger, and to see Kung Fu Panda 2.  Becky went to the American Girl store in LA to get a doll and take her to lunch. She’s super cute..

Jake played Tex in his school play.  I took my small group guys to go see him cuz it was a one night play and it was at the same time.   So myself and 5 high school guys went and watched a 3rd grade play before heading to pizza for the night.  Just trying to keep my family my top priority and modeling it with my students when I can.

Dang I’m blessed.  Love those kids.  Hope they know it.
