- My wife, Julie. She is my best friend and I'm extremely blessed to be married to her.
- My three daughters. I'm blown away that God has allowed me to be a daddy to these three girls. They are amazing in so many ways.
- My family - my parents, brother and his family, Julie's parents and her brother and family, grandparents, and all the other extended family.
- Good food. Are you kidding! We eat so much good food on Thanksgiving - so many of my favorite things - how could I not mention the food.
- Health. I'm thankful that I can walk, run, climb, and do so many things that we often take for granted.
- Friends. Everyone needs good friends. The kind that are there if you need them.
- Mentors. The people God has placed in my life that have helped me become what I am today. These people also help give me wise council - something I have needed much of lately.
- American Citizenship. I've been out of the country - if you haven't been you should. I am so thankful that I am an American!
- Difficulties. I don't like them but realize they make me stronger and make me rely on my Lord even more.
- God's Word. The bible is amazing and I'm blown away more and more of the impact it has made and is making in my life.
- Changed Lives. I'm thinking of the people God has allowed me see changed through His power and grace. I'm praying for more of this one!
- My relationship with Jesus Christ. He has changed me. I'm not perfect - there is more changing to be done. He is faithful, forgiving, loving, strong, all knowing, and my Creator.

A Few Ideas
Friday, November 14, 2008
I returned late Wednesday night from a 12 day trip into Northern Africa. Our purpose was to do humanitarian work while building bridges with people. The trip was extremely successful! I was personally stretched in many ways and once again discovered the importance of following Christ in all things, a loving wife and family, freedom of religion, the little things we take for granted, and friends who are truly committed to you.
