Young man, here is something you need to remember: we all wander. Whether towards or away from God, closer to or further away from friends, nearer to the righteous path or fumbling around in the mud of sin.

This describes my path, your path, your grandmother’s path… eve...

I tell an old story* every so often at camp. It’s a simple thing. But, like most good and simple stories, it opens our eyes to what is important.

If you’ve not watched Admiral William McRaven’s commencement speech from a few years back, you should. It’s well worth it no matter who you are or what you believe in. (The book is good, short read.)

Adm. McRaven shares several life lessons he learned in SEAL training t...

When I think back over high school, my memory seems dark. Not that I can’t see those times, just that the actual memories are tinged with a bit of darkness.

I was neither the most popular kid nor the best athlete. It was a small school and everyone knew everyone else. T...

Hello! Thank you for stopping by. The Immanuel Project is 'on hold' for the summer as we turn our full (and then some) attention to our summer camp. I hope you have a wonderful summer and join us back here (or on facebook or instagram) in September!

Have a blessed and...

If you've not heard of Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, you've not been plugged in to modern culture. (I'm not saying that's a bad thing!)
