Around January of this year I seriously considered shutting down the blog. Over the past few months I've been thinking about it and have decided to just take a break. I really enjoy writing for this blog, and apparently so do about 1000 of you every day. I still have a lot to say about things that are relevant, so I plan on being back. No, there isn't any drama at church or in my family. Why the break? The big reason at the moment is that I have other writing projects I would like to get started on, and doing that and this blog seems too tough for me - at least at the moment. You may see me pop up on another blog (maybe not), and you will still find my photography online (something I got a lot of questions about at the Founders Conference).

Thank you so much for reading. I am glad to have been an encouragement to you, as many of your words have helped me.
