Thanks, ladies. I’m also chuckling at my super adorable girls who like to make up funny movements to kids songs. This morning it …

Too Tired to Leave Terminal E in SLC

Even with its facelift, poor ol’ Terminal E in Salt Lake City continues to be one of the least pleasant airport terminals in the USA. Maybe it’s the constant, blaring announcements for flights that are boarding. (All of the planes are the size of tissue boxes, so they’re coming and going literally every few minutes.)

Hi again, friends! Just a quick note to ask you to please say a quick prayer for me to regain my voice in the next three days. I’m moving quickly towards a true laryngitis and Ella’s has lasted for over two days (so pathetic!), so I’m concerned about my serving in the next two weeks at San Gabriel Union Church …

High School is Still High School

Due to an accompanying gig, I had the joy of visiting Billings West High School this morning. What an adventure! I hadn’t been inside of a public high school in years and honestly? I kind of expected things to be very different than my 1985-1988 years at MCHS. More George Jetson robots or iPads or something. But instead, I saw …
