    Flying down the 485 freeway through the suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina, you might easily miss the exit marking my hometown. But if your a spirited adventurer keen on understanding the the patterns of southern charmed America, you’d better scan out the kudzu-dominated freeway ramp and take...

    On July 2, 2007, my mom, brother, and I moved up here. My dad had some military stuff to take care of so he did not come up when we did. We came up in a Mustang. We had the trunk full of bags and suitcases. In the back seat with me, there was a cat kennel and a cat litter box so it was pretty...

    Three countries, thirty-four states, twenty thousand miles, eight people, fourteen months and one RV. It was the trip of a lifetime!

    Sub-freezing temperatures, 40 mile winds, rain, and bears.  Sounds like a fun family vacation?  Well, I had to deal with all of that and more on my first ever overnight hike and I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat. Two summers ago, me, my father, and my uncle embarked on our first journey...

    This past summer was, more than likely, the last summer that I get to spend at home with my parents. Next year, I will be off to college and so end my summers of family vacations.

             Just four hours north of my hometown is one square mile that could very well exist in another world.   When I arrived alongside my youth ministry in this other world, in the heart of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District, I had no idea what to expect. We were scheduled to help City Impact...

    First, a 12 hour flight from Denver non-stop to the Munich Airport. A three hour wait in Munich, and then a hop on a puddle jumper that takes you to Vienna, spending another hour and a half on the cramped plane. Another hour passes taking the bus into the heart of Vienna, where the Monarch Band and...
