wpid-photo.JPGNo Throw Aways is something that I have thought a lot about in my life.  As a pastor, there are times when the ministry doesn’t run like planned.   Does that mean that it is wasted time?  No! And then of course there is life.  I suppose that always goes as planned too. No!  Everything that is done in life is important and should be viewed that way.    I am a father of 4 children (3 boys, 1 girl), a husband, a son and a follower of Jesus Christ.  All of these roles present opportunities, none of which are throw aways.    We need to be “all in” at all times and waste nothing because our time is limited.

This blog is mainly about the daily opportunities and lessons I learn from my children and life as a pastor.
