Did we forget to mention that Mike was a tent-maker pastor/elder for about 25 years at several different churches? He always worked full time while pastoring, which made for some long days and nights. That makes Susan the tired wife of a tired former pastor. That all vaporized before our eyes in early 2009 when we both hit a wall of performance and realized we were wearing layers of masks to look like people wanted us to look (like we had it all together) instead of being real and letting our weak, broken selves show. After years of faking it, we crashed and burned. Mike blogged about that at When Grace Breaks Your Legs.
Did we mention that Mike has a photo blog of his hometown? He grew up in Page Arizona and his photo blog chronicles the building of Glen Canyon Dam, Page Arizona, and the beginnings of Lake Powell. Check it out: Add a Page To Your Trip.
We're glad you're here and thank you for reading this. We don't have our act together and that's not even a goal that's within our reach. But we know Jesus and the good news is that Jesus came and died for messy broken people just like us because messy broken people are all that there are!
