For many years now, I’ve been on a journey of trying to live with less and reduce my consumption footprint on the world. At times, I’ve tried too hard, ultimately giving myself more work to do than I can and making everyone around me mad.

Book Review: Organizing Your Day
I’m always looking for a way to get more out of my day. More out of the time I have available to me. Ways to be more productive or time efficient.

And if you don’t know what it is, the enneagram has actually been around for a very long time andContinue reading “Book Review: The Path Between Us”
Book Review: Sex God
And while it talks about sex, this book is really about humanity being made in the image of God, respecting the image of God in ourselves, and honoring the image of God in others.
