What’s it like? (financial version)

We've been dealt this question a lot in life. "What's it like in Mexico?" "What's it like raising support?" "What's it like to be back?"And the list goes on. True to form, what I *thought* it would be like and what it's actually like have been polar opposites. (Expectations, meet reality.) Coming from an SBC...

Evangelism & Network Marketing

I bet you could name 20 products or people that are selling things in your FB feed. (I might even show up in that list!) As I have just begun to dabble in the world of network marketing, I am floored about HOW MUCH applies to evangelism! It's uncanny.

A different kind of Easter

W's brother (who is studying to be a chef) was in town this weekend and offered to cook us a very special Easter dinner. We loved the hands-on experience!
