Moses & Elijah Graduating From High School

Our son's Moses and Elijah are both graduating from high school this week. Candice and I homeschooled the boys all the way through. Moses started his journey of becoming a software engineer when he was 8, and has already started his career and is building a few software startups with me. Elijah developed a love for video production several years ago and has also already started his career in the field. Both boys plan on staying in Roseburg to live and work. Moses, Elijah, we are very proud of you both and are excited to see you launch into this next season of life! To all our friends, family...

Family Time On the Oregon Coast

This last week, our family headed over to Depoe Bay on the Oregon Coast. Our family has been meeting there to hang out together for decades, so it's a really special place for us.

I started watering the lawn a second time later in the day because it was acting like it wasn’t getting enough water, but that still wasn’t doing the trick. I fertilized it, put grub killer on it, and spent far too much time racking my brain as to why the grass hasn’t been flourishing. This morning, Elijah told me that when he went to adjust ...

It takes life energy to pay off debts. A country that just continually gets in more debt and doesn’t even try to live within its means is a country that is ok with stealing the life of future generations to pay their debts for them. Why don’t politicians balance the budget? They are cowards that don’t care about the future generations. They only care about getting re-elected. We have somewhere between 12 and 15 years before all Social Security money is gone. The debt payments in a decade are going to be so massive, they will swallow up all entitlement spending at which point there wi...
