D

A special shoutout for my wife for putting the kids to sleep so I can write this blog 😀 I will jot a few thoughts about being a stay-at-home dad and someone who used to be in ministry.  Today someone asked me this question, “do I want to go back to ministry?” The answer is YES, and of course.  But this doesn’t mean I will jump back in, not at least in this season.
