If you are reading what I am writing please assume that I am, myself, working through whatever it is that I am writing about. I do not want to ever be considered to be a person who only shares and speaks from a “mountaintop” view-point. 99% of the time what I have written is directly an outcome of being in the mud of life. If you were to read my words and feel as if they are preachy, know that I am preaching… to myself. As for anything I have written that may feel disconnected or too vague, understand every word I express is intimately linked to an ongoing struggle or circumstance my family and I are experiencing. Any wisdom or encouragement you glean from what I put here on this site, I want you to know that I am there with you, exactly where you are.
