“Tongue control? It will never be achieved unless there is first of all heart and mind control. When any Christian comes to the point of yielding to the Lord in full sincerity, cost what it may control of his thought life, the problem of managing his tongue will be solved, provided that such a surrender goes deeper than the intellect and reaches the emotions and will. For the Bible makes a distinction between mere intellectual knowledge of God and the trust of the heart.”

Frank E. Gaebelein, The Practical Epistle of James: Studies in Applied Christianity (Great Neck, N.Y.: Channel Press, 1955), 80-81.

Waiting for a Burger

At Five Guys

An Impressive Space For Used Books

Normally used books don't have such a wonderful space. The cement grid ceiling, the brick walls, and the many books create an impressive space. 

Matthew and Jenn browsing the books

You'll typically find me with my head tilted sideways trying to read spines on bookshelves. Jenn manages without looking ridiculous.

And Jenn nearly refuses to pose for me, so any portraits I'm going to get will be from everyday moments. 

The Way We Walk

In Complimentary Ways

You'll see Jenn walking Tessa on leash. But you may have noticed that in many of my photos, Tessa is wandering the scene. We parent our dog differently, but in complimentary ways. Dad's are always more fun.
