how to change your life: compassion

Today I was blessed to meet two of the kids I sponsor through Compassion International. We first met in January of 2010 when I was here getting Caleb, and I was very fortunate to be able to spend more time with them on this trip. We had a great time getting to know each other […]

starting early

Dear Uncle Mack, I’m trying to start Caleb early on his love for the NBA.  We read the book you gave us and we watch videos like this. When he’s old enough maybe you can teach him about hoops. I know he’d love it (I would too). We love you. Love, K & C

the football

So my friend Ryan is uber-funny and also has mad graphic design skillz.  He also likes selling football tickets.  I too like selling football tickets.  However, I am not as funny as he is (nor do I possess his mad internet skillz), so he’s letting me mooch off of his coolness and sell mine through […]
