My brother-in-law Andrew Drake wrote a book about being single that is such a treat. It would make a fun summer read. (Andrew is basically Larry David, real funny) Treat yourself to a good book:

what would you do with $250 to use to benefit a charity/cause?

Y'all, my husband is still a worship pastor, tho we would prefer to be part of a more inclusive community. Financially & as far as work load goes, he has it pretty good, so he doesn't really want to leave. but I hate it. I would prefer to live a more authentic life, but that could get him fired. How do I cope with having to be careful what I say? Can s/1 help me understand how it's okay to keep "supporting" this institution? I'm an Enneagram 1 & really struggle with feeling I'm being fake.

I'm gonna vent. Gossip is so ugly. 

Today is Children's Day in China. I love the idea of celebrating children and what they offer the world. I recently started teaching with VIPKID, which is so fun, but also I believe we are doing something crucial in building relationships with people from a different culture. Our students are affluent and likely to be leaders in their country someday. Perhaps loving them now will make a difference then. ๐Ÿ’œ

It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression." - Fred Rogers

Had a blast last night seeing Gungor, Brilliance, and Propaganda do a great show! It's wild looking back on the journey you've been on. I've been on a similar journey with you, and not being alone is so much better. (Sorry I cropped out David, didn't want to include the kids).

Firefly is without a doubt one of the best things that ever happened to television.
