Twice in one week I've missed now. I asked Morgan tonight, "Why did I choose blogging to do every day for a year?"
Last night, after Union College's first home volleyball game, Morgan and I drove to Hutchinson, MN to 1) see my new nephew Lincoln and to 2) tell Maplewood Academy students how to make smart decisions for their futures (like going to Union College). Around 12:20am we passed the state sign for Minnesota and it felt so wonderful. There's nothing quite like the place that you grew up.
So I got to meet little Lincoln (more on this tomorrow--he gets his own day), and then I went and shared this handout with all the students. This is my favorite piece to share with prospective students, teachers, parents, and pastors because it is what keeps me passionate about my job.
There is a difference that is made when you choose an education that is tailored towards a life of service to God and our fellow earthlings.
