For those counting at home there are three awesome things in this picture: my barbecue chicken with greens, that barbecue stuffed baked potato, and @jnichols194. Enjoyed lunch and fellowship with this dude. The work and ministry Josh and his bandmates are doing through @mttworship is powerful. Thankful to call him a friend and ministry partner. #goodfriendsgoodfood

Playing cards with these three has always been an experience unto itself. Hope they never outgrow it. #cardsharks #parenting #dadlife

For those of you in and around Birmingham, I'd love to invite you to put this event on your calendar. It's an awesome weekend of main stage and workshop leaders focused on the practical side of discipling our children. I'll be the main stage speaker Friday night and will be leading a workshop Saturday. Childcare is provided for a small fee, but you need to register. Go to Shades.org/parents and follow the prompts. I'd love to have you join us. @shadesmtn #discipleship #parenting

Y'all, Paul (3.5 yrs old) has the palette of a middle aged man. This is his excited face for his breakfast of smoked salmon, omelette, and whole wheat English muffin. His favorite vegetables are broccoli and asparagus, both of which he eats with gusto. He pops avocado slices ("applecabos") like tic-tacs. He loves hot wings. So wonderfully weird ...

A week's worth of notes to my "girls." Wife and two oldest leave today for a mission trip to @seekerspringsministry. I'm sad, happy, and just a little jealous. @shadesstudents @shadesmtn #forthegospel #missions

After having to take two weeks off to nurse an injured calf and get an epidural in my neck (fun times, let me tell you), got a strong 8 miles in this AM. Felt great. Good to be back. #running #runninglife #bigboysruntoo #wareagle

Had such a great time at Covenant College yesterday at GENERATE. Board meetings are better on the mountain. Still blown away to think about humble beginnings 7+ years ago. God knew then that these days were always in the mix. Great ministry. Great people. Bright future. @generateym360 @youthministry360 #youthministry #stumin #forthegospel #justgettingstarted (photo cred the super talented @clayton_chapman)
