Something Lost and Something Found

Tearin’ Apart the House Last year, my boys wore me out begging for a new game console. They desperately “needed” to upgrade from an XBox 360 to an XBox One. After negotiation, we figured out a plan, which included selling all of our old gaming equipment. That weekend, we gathered all of our stuff and headed out […]

silence on Andy Bondurant

Silence is…Impossible

Silence is…Impossible I’m sure you’ve heard this phrase – “Silence is golden.” If you are a parent of young children never have truer words been spoken. There can never be enough silence if you live in a household of toddlers. As my children have aged, silence is still hard to come by…possibly even harder. Now there are […]

Word of the Year 2017 | What’s Your Word?

These aren’t just any hipster stores. These are stores consisting of reused, repurposed or restored items. You can find any […]

Are You Winning?

The Lovable Losers It is playoff baseball time again. My Royals didn’t make the postseason, but I’m enjoying following the teams still in it. The Chicago Cubs clinched the last spot to face the Cleveland Indians. The Cubs won the series handily against the Los Angeles Dodgers, but early on it was not so sure. […]

Faith is both ancient and new by Andy Bondurant

Something Ancient | Something New

Stand by the roads, and look,     and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it,     and find rest for your souls.  – Jeremiah 6:16 Something ancient It’s human nature to want the new thing. We all want newer, better, faster, stronger. It’s why you upgraded your phone/car/computer/dishwasher/drill last year. […]
