The West Wing

The West Wing moved up to bump the original Practice out of the running as my all-time favorite tv show. Here's why:


I may be a little late to the party, but I absolutely love this show!

How Good Business Is Done

A few months ago I signed up for a membership with www.shootlove.com. It's a photography website and since I've been wanting to expand on my photo taking abilities and they were giving a great introductory offer, I decided to sign up.

During the first couple of months they had a few roadblocks and delays and instead of just expecting their customers to put up with it, they instead did something unexpected:

And they were good on their word. The day after getting this message I got a notice that my monthly payments to shootlove.com were cancelled and I'm now lucky enough to have a lifetime membership, absolutely free!

And that my friends is how good business is done....

Eye Opening Article

It's interesting how with all the reports of the nuclear problems Japan is having, officials from the government both there and here insist that things are safe. This is the first article I've read that shows just how unsafe things are and how bad things could get.

The people of Japan truly need our support and prayers!

How Could This Be

Writing is something that I just love to do and my writing takes on a lot of different forms.  Sometimes thoughts or lines will come to me that turn into a devotional, other times a radio ad, other times a chapter for a book and then there are some times that they turn into a potential song.  I say potential because while I can write words that resemble lyrics I lack the musical inclination to turn them into an actual song.  But that is where it pays to have gifted friends :)

To hear one of our recent songs, check out the video.  The lyrics are also posted below.

How Could This Be
By: Julie Bouchard & Kristen McNulty

Moonlight at midnight
All the stars shining bright
Reflections of Your glory
All of heaven tells a story
Seeing just a small glance
Journey of the second chance

Creation redeemed
That's your plan for me
Hearts and lives restored
I'm amazed Lord
How could this be?
How could this be?

Rainbows on a dreary day
Direction when I've lost my way
Light that shines bright inside
Even the darkness can't hide
What a complex mystery
Heaven re-writing our history

That one event changed it all
Jesus Christ, redeemer of the fall
How can it be, how can it be?
Forgiveness and grace are mine
Covered by Your love divine
How can it be, how can it be?

The OC Supertones

In high school, which was more years ago than I would care to admit, one of my favorite bands was the OC Supertones. I liked the band because yes, as a trombone player it was one of the few bands that I could play along to, but also because their lyrics had a depth to them that I appreciated.

There wasn't many other bands out there quoting the likes of Schaeffer and encouraging Christians to go beyond the surface of faith.

When the band broke up I was very disappointed that I never had the opportunity to see them in concert, but my hopes were reignited recently when I found out they played a couple concerts on the West Coast last summer. Here's to hoping it won't be the last time the guys get together for a few shows.
