    “How can a game have such an effect on man’s soul? The way I see it, how can it not? You don’t choose the game; it chooses you. And when it does, you become connected for life.” - 7 Days in Utopia
    This will be my first installment of a three part series of my trip to Europe to work with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
    Sometimes in life, we are called do be a part of something that is bigger than ourselves.

  • Column: Leave the cell phones...

    It’s been said time and time again.
    “Kids are too wrapped up in their video games, and they need to get outside.”
    However, should that adage be just for kids?
    This past weekend, I went camping at Fall Creek Falls.
    Camping in a tent under the stars, smelling themountain air and above all, having no cell phone service.
    A weekend without cell phone distraction, Facebook and Twitter.
    To say the least, it was way better than most people would think.
    To me, getting outside is something that is relaxing.
