Where to Live Next?

There was a returned missionary that spoke today in church. He was a great kid and I’m sure a great missionary. Rachel commented during his talk though that his talk focus about him and how much his mission helped in. She contrasted it to my cousin, Kevin, who we listened to speak in Roosevelt a few weeks ago. He went to the temple and prayed about what he should talk on and he delivered an excellent talk and taught the congregation. I...

He’s going to finish painting...

I wasn’t taking enough responsibility for the stats project at work. I need to own...

On my way to work this morning I wrote a letter to Dan. I had no intention of giving the letter to Dan, but I wanted to get all my thoughts and feelings out. By the time I got to work I decided to set up a meeting with him. Luckily his afternoon was open and I spent an hour and a half chatting with him. I’m glad I did. Dan has a way of calling me out and chastising me in a way that motivates and inspires me to do better. Joel has a way of...
