The Reading Rut of 2019

I go through at least one reading rut every year, and I’m currently in one. Part of the reason is that my job is keeping me busy and mentally exhausted. The other reason, I believe, is that I’m reading St. Augustine’s Confessions, which is not light reading. The little bit of time I get to […]

The Long-Distance Race

“The Christian life is not a series of 100-yard sprints; it is like a cross-country race. It’s a long obedience in the same direction.” – Alistair Begg I realized long ago that I’m not a very patient person. I sometimes wonder if it has something to do with the era I’ve spent my teens and […]

The Bullet Journal: To Plan or to Track?

I’ve tried a lot of ways to get myself organized with my writing. Not just in terms of keeping track of ideas and notes, but in terms of making myself sit down and get things done. I was using a Monthly/Daily planner for a while, but I eventually fell away from keeping it up. I […]
