I was born on a snowy, cold New York night and now I wake up every morning in sunny Arizona. My life has clearly trended upward. My role at church is a joyous challenge, full of great relationships—which is excellent because that's the entire point of life. My home life is beautiful Jenny and our kids with the Yankees broadcast in the background.
As I deal with everyday life, I am amazed and energized by the fact that God calls us to live in healthy relationship with Him and with others. Jesus said it first: the point of life is to love God and love others (Matthew 22:37-40). We are not called to live this life alone. It's a beautiful thing!
