I’ve never read the Bible through in a year.
I’ve also never tried. Partly because I don’t like to play games I can’t win (I knew deep down I would likely fail), partly because I’m terrible at sticking to a daily, scheduled plan (particularly one created by someone else), and partly because I didn’t care enough to try.
But mid summer of this year, July 15 2017 to be exact, I figured I would give it a try.

Well babe, we’ve survived ten years & four kids together!
If you’re cool with it I thought we could talk a bit about some of our challenges, learnings, joys and general thoughts from along the way.
I’m assuming that’s a yes, yes?
We’ll go with yes, so here we go.
I intend to truly think through, and articulate (to the best of my ability) what I mean when I say that I am a Christian.
Here’s the truth: I almost cringe to even use the term sometimes…Christian.
My preference would be Christ Follower. Follower of Christ. Born again believer. Child of God. Even simply ‘Believer’.
And I’m not completely sure why that is, although I have a strong hunch.
This will be a rant, and for that I apologize.
I’m sitting on a plane thinking about whether I should even write this or not.
