A Pathway to Living Loved

Tomorrow, I'll post my last blog of the year. I'm excited to share that with you, but I woke up this morning with a desire to respond to many of the emails I get about helping people discover just how deeply loved they are by God. My email box often vacillates between two kinds... Read More

Writing the Final Chapter

Sara and I are currently in Arlington, TX, for a couple of days, and then we'll begin writing the final chapter of our RV trip around the U.S. And what a trip it has been. The team is still together; the joy continues to grow. If you haven't listened to Wayne's Happiest Day Ever,... Read More

Another Emergency in Kenya

[Update on Friday, November 11:  As of this morning, we have received all of the funds needed for this project. Thanks for your incredible generosity toward these incredible children and those who are managing for their care.  Of course, the needs will continue there, so if you want to send extra, I'm sure they...

Heading Home

This. Has. Been. So. Much. Fun. The return to innocence tour has been an absolute delight on a personal level. It has given me extended time with Sara and our dogs, the healing that keeps flowing from Father's heart, and the fantastic conversations and friendships Jesus keeps letting us explore. We are both so... Read More

The Seven Best Thoughts So Far

A few more days in Virginia—Lynchburg, to be exact—and then we turn westward for the long drive home. We have been traveling through autumn colors since early September in Duluth and have immersed ourselves in its beauty. I want to be like that in the autumn of my life, letting God’s beauty shine through... Read More

The Decision Is In

We are nearing peak leaf color here in NW Ohio, and it is fabulous. Sitting out in the backyard with a group of people yesterday with a cascade of leaves occasionally spilling out of the trees around us was nearly magical. The conversations were even better as we shared God's life together, struggled with... Read More

Our Readers Are So Amazing

Sara and I arrived in Ohio yesterday in what seems to be an incredibly providential sense of timing. For the last week, Sara has had a new emerging memory about a harrowing childhood incident, and its unfolding climaxed on her birthday last Thursday.   We think this may prove to be a tremendous gift...

Finding God's Rhythm in the Darkness

It's finally out! I read this book over a year ago to Sara on one of our driving trips to Denver to be with our son. It's the second part of the three-part Velieri Uprising, a series of books that take on big themes like identity, spiritual warfare, and human conflict in a fictional... Read More

The Gift of Sight in the Valley of Pain

Two nights ago, I sat among giants. Five people, each of them, had come face-to-face with a conflict between their consciences and the system of power that held the keys to their salary and advancement. And they each chose to follow their nudging consciences growing deep within them. For three of them, it was... Read More

Can You Help Us Yet Again?

Sara and I have come vertically through Michigan and landed close to Benton Harbor in the southwest. God has seemingly opened a wide door here with lots of connections I tried to get to a few months ago, before our Unforeseen Circumstances. And new doors open every time I check my email. It's going... Read More

The Jake Colsen Book Club - Chapter 6

The next meeting of the Jake Colsen Book Club has been set. For those interested, we work through So You Don't Want to Go to Church Anymore chapter by chapter in a series of Zoom sessions where you can share your insights or ask questions.  You don't have to have been to a previous... Read More

Moving On

This week we will be working our way through Michigan. That's the team up top on an early morning walk to the Peninsula Lighthouse near Rapid River. It's been glorious here with the people we've spent time with and some new folks we met. Also, Sara and I were the only ones in the... Read More

When Something Horrible Comes Your Way

Over the past sixteen days, we have traveled almost 2908 miles from Thousand Oaks, CA, to Duluth, MN, and we are having a wonderful trip. We've moved from 100 degree days in Wyoming and Denver, to waking up to a 40 degree morning. Sara and I are having the most wonderful conversations with each... Read More

On to the Upper Midwest

Today we finished up in Colorado and are heading up north to Wyoming to spend some time with my podcast co-host Kyle Rice and his family in Torrington, WI.  We've had a number of options from there but what has most settled in our hearts is a wide open door in Duluth, MN and... Read More

Recapturing Innocence

We know that Sara had her innocence stolen at four years old. Instead of growing up with the heart of a playful child, she lived guarded, navigating the terrors of the trauma she didn't understand. Instead of a carefree childhood, she learned to survive, especially when criticized. Retreats have not been one of Sara's... Read More

Glad That's Over!

What a crazy weekend! We packed up 47 years of married life and had to find a place for those things in an 1100 square foot apartment, a 330 sq ft motor home, and even after we gave loads of stuff away we still needed to rent some storage bays. Thanks to the help... Read More

Thank You, from Forkland in Kenya

Let me offer my thanks and gratitude of our friends in Kenya for the recent rescue of three hundred abandoned children in the community of Forkland. We have supported a school there for over a decade because it provides education for students whose parents cannot afford it. Earlier this year, during a deep drought,... Read More
