Therapy, Wilderness and Scouts

There is something really therapeutic about just being outdoors. Hiking, swimming, climbing, backpacking, boating…it doesn’t matter, being out in God’s creation can be incredibly healing and building. One thing that has really stuck out to me as I’ve met clinicians from outdoor wilderness programs is how many of them have a background in Scouts. I haven’t kept count, but probably between 2/3 and 3/4 of […]

The return of the blog

The return of the blog

Two and a half years after it closed I am officially re-opening “one mo blog” for business.  Posts from the old blog have been migrated to my new website, and as I alluded to in my last post, it’s time to start writing again.  Look for some new meaningful content starting before the end of 2011.  The attempt of the blog is going to be […]

A Project Finished

I can finally share the internet project I’ve been working on for the past few months that has kept me from posting more to this site. The new Vital Sources website is now up and running! Most of the information on it is similar to what was already there, but organized in a (hopefully) more reader friendly fashion. What I’m really excited about is the […]

Closing up shop..for now

I mentioned a couple posts ago that changes are coming. It’s time. First a little reflection: Can you believe that one mo blog has been up in one form or another for over five years!

Getting back up

Jenny and I have both been sick for the past few days. I’m finally feeling better today, Jenny is still feeling pretty awful though. It’s a bit frustrating. We didn’t plan being sick into our crazy schedules. We’ve been working really hard to get done what we need to and having things pushed back a couple days seems to create enormous amount of work to […]

Wow

Baltimore 13 Tennessee 10 What a gutsy game. The big difference was obviously turnovers and can you really say enough about Joe Flacco. Sure, he didn’t have stellar stats, but he did enough to win the game, moved the ball when it counted and, most impressively, didn’t turn the ball over. I’m psyched, this city is psyched, and if you think for one second that […]

On Deck

Hey folks, Sorry I’ve been gone. I was just enjoying my time with my family over break way to much to blog. You know what strike that first sentence, I’m not sorry at all. We had a blast over break. We moved Emma into a big girl bed! Zach got a week with his Dad, and we started putting the small room back together as […]

Oops!

I feel pretty dumb.  When I posted my intro to the new Jehovah-Shammah series I copied and pasted from a rough draft of the paper.  The revised intro is posted now.  There are only some minor changes, but they do set the stage, so to speak, for the rest of the series.  I figured I’d get this up now before I post part 2 tomorrow.
