The Hardest Thing on Earth
“I found that to tell the truth is the hardest thing on earth, harder than fighting in a war, harder than taking part in a revolution. If you try it you will find at times sweat will break upon you. You will find that, even if you succeed in discounting the attitudes of others to you and your life, you will wrestle with yourself most of all, fight with yourself, for there will surge up in you a...

Tell the Tale
Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, what the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang sauchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative.

I am a convert to the clean program....

On this mother’s day I woke up in the house that my mother has tended for the last 25 years. It was pure joy to walk out of the room and find her in conversation with my beloved, my dear wife and the mother of my child – celebrating her very first mother’s day. I was able to witness the pattern of Grace that fills my heart with abundance. Two women who are spiritual warriors above anything...
