It’s been a while since I last posted something of personal significance on this blog. I’ve been posting The Friday Muse each week – small writing snippets full of fiction and fancy – but I haven’t been posting much else besides that. For that, I apologize.
Not going to lie. It’s been rough as of late. Even before I left California on the 800+ mile journey back here to Arizona at the end of April, I was battling emotional demons. I didn’t want to leave California. I didn’t want to move. Not really. It seemed smart logically, but the fact is, … More A Season of Struggle
Many of you know that I proclaim to be a writer. And to many of you, when that statement is made, you probably envision me sitting at a desk, building imaginary worlds and creating imaginary characters to fill those imaginary worlds. But to be honest, when I say that I am a writer, the statement … More For The Sake of the Call
It’s been two years since my family and I made a ridiculous leap of faith and moved to the Bay Area. To be honest, it feels like ten. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t lost and confused when we first moved out here. Our initial reason for moving was to help start a … More Goodbye, California
It’s been an interesting walk of faith since I announced that my wife and I intend to move to San Francisco this January to take part in a church plant called Canvas.

Our plan to move was originally initiated by a stroke that my grandfather had back in March of this year. Once we learned he had the stroke, we decided to pick up and … More How One Video Changed Our Lives
I haven’t posted on this blog in a while, and what better way to come back from the ashes than to announce some really big life changing plans that God has led our family into. In January, my family (my wife, my son, my cat, and I) are moving to San Francisco, California. Specifically, the … More God Showed Us A Video And Turned Our Life Upside Down
Many years ago my grandfather moved to Sonora, California. There was a point back in 1994/1995 that my family and I lived in Salida, California – only an hour drive from Sonora. Now in Arizona, I try my best to make at least a few visits per year to see my grandfather and to get … More My California Adventure – Sonora
Last week I took a trip up to northern California to visit my grandfather. He lives in the little town of Sonora near Jamestown and Columbia. The area is rich in gold rush history and old west memorabilia, and I enjoy every moment I spend up there in the cool weather and nostalgic environment. This … More My California Adventure – Ironstone Vineyards
