In late November God blessed me with the vision for Interpression Ministries.
While nothing too much publicly has taken place since the initial launch, lots has been going on behind the scenes.
I am looking forward to unveiling the mission for 2009 in the upcoming weeks on the Interpression Blog.
If this is your initial opportunity to hear about Interpression Ministries, I encourage you to take the time to check out the Interpression Blog to learn more:

2008 Review in Photos

with one comment

I really have no clue where to begin.
2008 brought so many ups and downs that just the thought of going through and rehashing all of it freaks me out.
Regardless, 2008 was amazing for many reasons, and one in particular.

Thankful fors in 2008 in no particular order:
(clicking each photo will enable you to leave a comment and to enlarge a specific photo)

There are many more photo’s I could place up there; blog party, etc. However I have limited space and time.
Perhaps if I feel it, I’ll do a 2008 in Review part II.
I will say this, Twitpic made this a whole lot easier.

I truly never will forget 2008.
Each memory will be tattooed on mind and heart forever.
From the moment of 01/01/08, to the moment of all the tears I cried, to the moment I first laid my lips on Allison’s, to the moments soon awaiting me in the next few days.
2008 will be a defining moment of my life to come.

I could truly never be more blessed.

Here’s to 2009!

Christmas Cards….Interpression Style

with 4 comments

So I have been thinking about a way that I can get the word out on Interpression Ministries a little more.
I started thinking about maybe handing out flyers, but decided I didn’t want to do that
However, that though is what spawned the idea of this:
Interpression Ministries Christmas Cards(in the form of a post card)

Designing it took a long time.
I changed it probably 100+ times.
Not kidding.
I wanted to make sure the postcards included the vision of Interpression.
It was also important that people could feel the sense of love upon receiving the card
Not to mention I just wanted the card to look good.

What do you look for in a Christmas Card to consider it “good”?

Hey readers, I need someone who can design a logo for a HUGE project I’m working on.
I don’t have tons of money to offer for the logo, but I can offer some.
If you know anyone, or if you are that person, let me know.
I can fill you in on the details upon contact.

Send me an email with any information/suggestions you have:

Go Home Chris…Be Healed.

with 2 comments

Last night someone lost a brother.
Someone lost a son.
Someone lost a mentor.
Some lost a friend.
Some lost them all.
Last night a good friend of mine, who had been a friend, a mentor, and for awhile in my life, very brotherlike, passed away.

[click on the picture to enlarge it]

Chris was 26 yrs old.
It was roughly three years ago that Chris was diagnosed with ALS(Lou Gehrig’s Disease).
I remember the day like yesterday as I heard the news.
Knowing what that meant I wept immediately.
At that time it was Chris that was comforting me.
This was who Chris was.
Chris had always been the one to make everyone feel better. To lend you whatever it was you needed in the time that you were hurting.
He was always the one who cared so much about those around him, that sometimes forgot about the things that he needed to do for himself.
However, the one thing Chris took very serious, was his passion for the Lord, which showed very evidently through his relationships with people.
Until his last breath, Chris was still encouraging others to believe that God can not only heal him, but that he had. He was continuing to tell others that our God was a God of redemption and never-ending love. That no matter what, God has our best interest in mind.
I won’t sit here and say it was easy to support Chris as he was telling everyone these things.
It wasn’t.
I was pissed.
Chris was dying, yet Chris wanted me to believe that he had God’s favor and life with him.
Are you kidding me??
However, I know in my heart that now God has completely healed Chris. That where Chris is now, that he is walking, breathing, and loving all around him.
That everything Chris told me that God was doing for him, was done just as Chris had affirmed me so.
I know this, because prior to the diagnosis and even during it, Chris was always honest about God’s direction in his life.
The loving part, well that was just who Chris was.

You will be missed brother.
I love you.

Chris had a BLOG that he wrote in. Please take time to read some of his blog post. He had wisdom way larger than my own.
