Sometimes I fall short of ambitious goals I set for myself, but I realize that what causes people to read blogs is not always predictable, and I have to make a decision about what I would want to do to drive people to read the blog.
First, I know that content needs to be of high quality. However, this should be my drive in all things, as God calls us to be holy and perfect just as God is holy and perfect. I know I need to have something that is worth reading, and if it isn’t worth reading I shouldn’t post it.
Second, it needs to be relevant. I should also be relevant to the group that is reading the blog, as well as any group of people to which I am ministering.
Third, it needs to be consistent. This is something that I set out to be at the beginning, but have failed. In ministry though, we need to be consistent. Thus, even if I don’t spend the time putting together a detailed post, I know that I need consistent, quality, and relevant posts that will serve all readers of the blog.

I am often asked what describes you, which is a hard answer because sometimes I move in a thousand different directions. Some call me an engineer, others call me pastor, a few call me captain, some call me friend, others call me dad, and one calls me sweetheart. All of these things are descriptors and are accurate, but they don't fully capture me. My favorite place is in the mountains, enjoying the beauty of nature and God's creation, running and hiking around with my family and friends, and taking photos to cement the memories. However, the people that know me the best know that my favorite thing to do is come up with crazy adventures that push the limits of what our minds and bodies can do.
My faith in God is important to me and drives me to look at creation the way I do. Because of my faith, I look at these adventures and running races from Half Marathons all the way to 50-mile races, as well as several Obstacle Course Races, as an opportunity to push the body God gave me as an act of worship. Hopefully, someday soon, I look toward running longer races and bigger adventures. My hope is that humanity can understand that the wild is a gift, and we need to care for it and quit destroying it by the way we live.
