I have been reading through a book titled Suffering by Paul Trip. In general, this is not a topic I enjoy or want to learn more about for fear that I’ll somehow unwittingly bring some upon myself. The last sentence sounds silly, but it’s true to how I think sometimes. If left to my own choosing, I’d opt to avoid suffering in all shapes and forms. That said, suffering comes to all.…
In just a few months I will have been podcasting for ten years. I went into podcasting reluctantly. I had a blog and everyone around me encouraged me to start releasing audio versions of the stuff I talk about on my blog. When I started, I was terrible. The audio quality was low. The talent was even lower. But I was committed and that first year I released a show every week. I was doing…
When people ask me what they should do to get started on blogging, I rarely talk about technology or even blogging. While those are important elements of blogging, they are the next steps. Things you do after you decide you want to blog and have found your tribe and your voice. Ask yourself this, when you decide you want to start blogging. Who am I blogging for? If your answer is everyone, you are not…
My dad used to speak of seasons of life quite often as I was growing up. He used them as an anchor point for providing understanding to a specific situation. Often the seasons of life were tied to moment and what was happening with kids, relationships, school, career, etc.…
I enjoy cleaning. When I have a clean environment I just feel more organized. So it is part of my regular routine. While working from home and sheltering in place, I have indulged my tendency towards cleaning. While doing so I asked myself two questions: How can I make this more efficient? How can I make this more fun? It quickly occurred to me that I could probably do both. I needed a plan. So…

Portals are syndication engines that can bring together other publications under one domain. Our pilot example is our own site, LexBlog.com. Portals started because we wanted to help shine a light on the work…
Mail chimp template design can be a frustrating thing. I use it just enough that it has a learning curve every time log in to make an edit or create an email design from scratch. The pain experienced during this process reminds me of the pain associated with anything new when tried for the first time. Exercise, diet, CSS equals pain and frustration.…
Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom. This ancient love poem from Song of Solomon wisely warns of the relational damage caused by ignoring the little problems. The same can be true in all aspects of life.…

I recall a time in my late teens early twenties when my sister confronted me about my conduct and somewhat wild behavior. At the time, I was extremely annoyed at this intrusion. Looking back, I’m glad she said something. She was holding me accountable and letting me know I was not moving through life unnoticed. She loved me, and that’s why she was willing to make things a little uncomfortable. She was willing to ignore the…
