About

Roots Run Deeper

Perhaps you've never heard of Jadon Lavik. I hadn't until about 5 years ago. That was when he released his phenomenal album "Roots Run Deep." If you haven't listened to it, I'd recommend it: a beautiful collection of tastefully repainted hymns. But I…

Time Travel

What would you do if you could time travel? Designer Alex Varanese has the brilliant idea of taking all of our tech gadgets back to the seventies, repainting them with a touch of super-saturated 1977 goodness, and then selling them to the…

Kingdom Man (Book review)

In this approachable book weighing in just over 200 pages, Dr. Tony Evans seeks to help men step up out of apathy and into their God-given role as leaders and, well, men. Written in the same vein as Wild at Heart by John Eldridge, Evans takes issue…

No Space in the Budget

This is one of three articles I had to write for a course I took at the Colorado School of Mines called Advanced Science Communication. This article takes a look at the US budget crisis and questions the necessity of some line items that we pay for…
