My desire to be a resources to my brothers, sister, and sister-in-law has started.

One of my heart’s desire is not only to be the best jr hi guy that I can be for the glory of God but also to be the best uncle to my nieces and nephews that are now and will be in jr hi. I also want to be a recourse to my nieces and nephews moms and dads. Tonight was the start of that.

I got a chance to set down with my wife’s sisters oldest son Michael (he is 12) for about an hour talking about life. It was a great talk and one I hope to repeat throughout the years with him. He is a bright young man who has been growing like crazy and I’m a proud uncle. We talked about sports and his baseball ability, how to handle unfair situations, and relationships in different parts of his life. I pray that the words I’ve shared with Michael come from God and not from me. This is going to be a great time as a number of my nieces and nephews will become jr highers soon and some day all of them will past through this awesome time.

Awesome Mark! That's what it is all about. We have the privilege of influencing others and sometimes even our families!

Thx Tye - I love my family and only want to be the best that God has made me to be as a youth pastor and an uncle.
