Kristin and I have been married almost 30 years. And it keeps getting better. We’re grateful that both of our children have married wonderful partners in the past couple years, and that we are more than two years into grand-parenthood, a rich season of life.
We’ve been progressing intentionally down a path of increasing simplicity, downsizing from a regular sized house (2700 square feet plus garage and .33 acre lot) to a 1365 square foot condo, to a 984 sq foot condo. At the moment we’re back in our larger condo but setting up to live the next year or so in a small basement suite. And we love it. Watch for related posts and maybe a book before too long…
Kristin and I are currently living between Lake Country, BC in the Okanagan Valley, and Prince George, BC. I’ve just started my fourth role as “transitional pastor” in which we work to lead a church through the season between two Lead Pastors. It’s a combination of pastoral leadership, consulting and team building which utilizes everything I’ve learned over the years in my speaking and leadership roles.
Somewhere on this page you should see some info about my life-planning/goal-setting book Release, which has been out for a few years and which continues to benefit many people. Due to the requests I’ve received over the years I developed an online course which can can learn about via the email series offered here.
You can also find info about my book DNA of a Christ Follower, which highlights 8 non-negotiable character traits for people who claim to identify themselves as followers of Jesus Christ. Too often the focus is on what a Christ Follower does or doesn’t do. This book focuses on character, since our actions flow from who we are. A surprising number of people call themselves “Christian” without actually following Christ or displaying his character. This book is intended as a challenge to that trend.
Both books are available through this site or via Amazon in paperback or Kindle versions.
