The Christian life can only be lived out among a group of believers, dedicated to loving one another and on mission together to make more disciples. I'm thankful to be part of the family at City Lights Church in St. Louis. The people there are loving, gracious, joyful and determined followers of Jesus.
My pastors, Ben and Eric, have taught me much about the life of obedience during the last six years, not only through their sound Biblical teaching but by their examples.
My wife, Christina, allowed me many hours on the computer over the last year and a half writing and rewriting posts for this blog. She's part of everything I do and part of everything God has done in me the last ten years.
I wouldn't have kept going without those that took time to read this blog and share kind words of encouragement with me. Thank you, Casey, Nikki, Steve, Janele, Deedra, Jodi, Dave G., Debbie, Dave H., Nicole, Tonya, Lance, Troy, Stephanie, and everyone else.
To Logan, Ethan and Josie. You're all my favorites. I pray that you grow to know Jesus, to love him, and to depend on him for your salvation. I pray that you lead lives of God-honoring joyful obedience through the power of the Holy Spirit. Never doubt that Mommy and Daddy love you very much. Always remember that Jesus loves you best.
