  • The parting song of Edythe Calhoun

    By on January 17, 2017

    Brett’s grandmother passed away two weekends ago. When I tell people this, I try to quickly rush forward with the information that she was 103. I want people to know that we are celebrating her ( long!) life, and not mourning her passing. She is with Jesus and I…

  • Mercy in all its forms ( Olivet-Post 3)

    By on March 20, 2016

    If you’ve had kids than you’ll hopefully know what I’m talking about when I mention that overwhelming fear and panic mixed with excitement and awe that you feel when you first leave the hospital with you’re very first baby.
