Since we’re starting to grow, it may be time to start with some #introductions. My name is Dan. I’ve been married to my best friend, Amy, for 21 years. We have two ridiculously great kids, Ethan (17) and Libby (15).
I lead Missional Communities in Southeastern Michigan. We are looking at building a network of Missional Communities and training women and men to lead more of these and become fresh incarnations of the church.

A while ago, @mike posted about Jumbo, an app that helps you keep your various internet accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Google, Alexa, etc.) cleaned and private—as private as possible, anyway. Since then, the app has been overhauled and made much more user-friendly, plus they've added new cleaning services. If you didn't check them out then, you should give it a shot now.
