Today I went to a U of M Research and Outreach Center where I learned more about different varieties of corn and soybeans and how they react to weeds, as well as this year’s weather effect on crops. (I’ll spare the interesting details 😉 haha) When we had a tour of their plots, I noticed … Continue reading

What’s in your carry-on?

What a day! I’ll start at the beginning. Two days ago I flew out of Minneapolis to Indianapolis.

  • Romans 5:3-5

    "And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance; and perseverance, proven character; and proven character, hope; and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
