I have been asked to write a book on balancing ministry on family life. I had my first meeting about it today with the publisher. I'm pretty stoked.
I can't wait to share stories of my life where I got it wrong and a few places where I things turned out right. But the truth is, in good and bad, I really love my family. I feel really really really blessed. I also was reminded as we talked how deeply I really want my family to know they come first.
Here's some pictures from the latest events and my attempts to tell them as much with my time:
At a mens retreat, where I was the guest speaker and got to hang with my Dad and my oldest son TJ. I also got to be with one of my best friends and my high school youth pastor too. Love the generations and stories behind these pics.
At Becky and Billy's 8 year-old birthday. Billy went to inflatable world, in-n-out burger, and to see Kung Fu Panda 2. Becky went to the American Girl store in LA to get a doll and take her to lunch. She's super cute..
Jake played Tex in his school play. I took my small group guys to go see him cuz it was a one night play and it was at the same time. So myself and 5 high school guys went and watched a 3rd grade play before heading to pizza for the night. Just trying to keep my family my top priority and modeling it with my students when I can.
Dang I'm blessed. Love those kids. Hope they know it.
