I want to take some time to thank the many reader recognition awards that I have received from my awesome readers over the past few months. I have been extremely busy, and just haven’t had the time to sit down and give recognition to those that have saw fit to recognize me for my work.

Here is a list of awards that my readers have passed along to me:

Wordless Wednesday: Wayback Throwback


Jessica & I on our wedding day!

Wordless Wednesday: Wayback Throwback.

I know I am breaking up my series a bit here, but please take a look at this great post that my wife composed for “Wordless Wednesday” on her blog, where she journeys through our decade together through photos. I am the luckiest guy in the world to have such a loving and supporting wife. She has loved and supported me through my undergraduate studies, law school, and my countless years as a spiritual vagabond.  🙂

Chosen Family

Chosen Family.

Please check out this great story that my wife posted on her blog (www.sweetnscrappy.com).

Since my wife and I both work, ever since our son was born we have had a young Mennonite girl watch our son during the day. Unfortunately Ms. Megan is leaving us for Iowa. She and her family have been a huge part of our lives, and we are extremely thankful for their love and the wonderful impact that they have made on our son. Luckily, Ms. Megan’s mother, Anita, has agreed to continue watching our son, but Ms. Megan will be missed very much!
It is amazing how people who were once strangers can become so intertwined in our lives, that they become family to us, and impact our lives in ways that we could never have expected.

Not to be too cliche, but when we have a village, our lives are all the richer!

Versatile Blogger Nomination


Well, after four days of fun, fellowship, education, and spiritual growth with my Scottish Rite brethren, I decided to get caught up on my blog reading. Much to my surprise, two of my favorite blogs nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! This is a real treat for me because I absolutely love both of the blogs that nominated me.

I was nominated by:

A Second Cup– This is a wonderfully refreshing blog, where the author mixes various musings and insights into eclectic and humorous posts about life spiritual practices. I really enjoy reading this blog over my first (and sometimes second, or third, or fourth…) cup of coffee, and it never fails to make me smile and/or provide me with material to reflect upon.

Zen Being– This is a great blog which applies Buddhist teachings and practices to every day life. I always enjoy reading this blog, and I find the author’s insights to be extremely helpful and meaningful. This blog has continually helped me to continue striving to live in the now, and simply “be”.

Part of the nomination involves naming 7 blogs that I enjoy, other than the ones that recommended me, thus nominating them for this award: Read more…

No Disguises

No Disguises.

(Click the small blue “No Disguises” link above to read Christina’s Post)

This Post is actually from one of my favorite bloggers, Christina Cronk. I absolutely loved this post so much, that I just had to share it on my blog. The concept of removing your masks (your false self/ false identities) has been a recurring theme in my life, and my spiritual path.

Enjoy!
