Monthly Roundup : Activities, Books, and Articles

This last month included one of the most unproductive weeks in my entire life. It was primarily the result of a massively infected boil on my back that resulted in 3 days in bed and another 4 really slow days of recovery.  Sorry if that's too much information.  (I decided against including pictures.)   :) I returned to a village called Lavora with my family, and by that evening, my fears … [Read more...]

This Jungle Bush Kanaka Needs Your Wisdom and Roundup

Living in New Guinea officially means I'm out of the loop. Because I've been living outside of North America for so long, I feel a little out of touch. That's where you come in.

The Oblivious Investor discusses asset allocation for young … [Read more...]

Randomness | Pictures | Roundup

We’ll spend 101 nights away from home. Twice.  Twice in the last few weeks someone has made utterly ridiculous accusations about me.  I was accused … [Read more...]

Kids … [Read more...]

Giving Stories & Generous Christians Hunt + Roundup

As you may or may not know, I’m writing a book.  Actually, I’m doing more than writing a book.  I’m touching on the fringes of a breakthrough.  I don’t mean to be melodramatic, but I feel like I’m hot on the trail of getting a firm grasp of a financial call for Christians who want to take the next step towards generosity.  The writing and preparation process has been … [Read more...]
