So my room is major disaster zone as I mindlessly try to organize my life before I take off for three months; I will admit to having nightmarish thoughts about not being able to use my credit card or forgetting something important. Ah, so is life.
Today has been a day of organizing my Honda paperwork and credit card statements and dive insurance papers, and in the midst of all of that I found some notes from a book I read a year ago. No, I don’t always take notes when I read, but sometimes I read a book that is so full of GREAT thoughts that I can’t help but write some of them down for a rainy day when I am lagging. And then I find them on days like today and thank God for He clearly has it all planned out!
The book I had read was called “Life is So Good” by George Dawson, an African American man who worked hard every day of his life–through the unfairness and injustice that came his way–and found the good in everything; at age 98 he was not done trying and decided to go to school to learn how to read.

I'm a twenty-something from the Pacific NW making home in new places as I follow where God leads.
My intent is to show Christ's love to the world and use business to solve some of the social problems we face: hunger, illiteracy, healthcare, economic hardship. For now, I'm in a stage of learning. A little adventuring, a few books, some good friends, and a whole lot of prayer and life runs on.
