Love at a Distance

Day seven...

I trained and showed Quarter Horses as a teenager. When I moved back home to Missouri from New York I started riding again.

Hearing from God

Day nine...

It's wonderful when something we need to hear in the Bible just comes to life, as if God is speaking directly to us:

Celebrity

Day one....

Where would you go to find a large group of the most talented and disciplined people on the face of the earth? How about Olympic Village in London, during the 2012 Games? Gathered together in one spot were more than 10,000 of the world's most talented people.
