25 Years!

Tracy and I are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe how quickly the years have passed. 25 years of family and ministry and friends -- the Lord has blessed us more than we could have ever imagined. And we are just as much in love as the day we were married, even moreso! We are celebrating at one of our favorite places, Macinac Island, Michigan.

The Northmen

Getting ready to head to The Northmen in Kalkaska, Michigan. This will be the 50th and final year of this annual event for men  & boys in Northern Michigan. It is very primitive. We camp out in the middle of the woods (the nearest town is 12 miles away). No electricity or indoor plumbing (bathing is done in the creek). Even though I grew up in Michigan, I had never heard of The Northmen until I was an adult. I've had the privilege of preaching there three times. Since moving to Indiana, we have attended nearly every year. It has become a family tradition. We will miss it, so we are really going to cherish this final time.
