      • It's coming! I want to get the supplies together to make the instructional and as far as the other blog posts go I want to check in with CS and see if it's better suited for CC or for the blog space that I just opened up...

        • Sidebar! I hit jackpot on awesome sleep. I think it's down to an art.

          What I'm doing pre sleep:

          -Not eating at least 2 hours before bed
          -1tbsp raw local honey
          -1tbsp mct oil
          -450mg of Magnesium Citrate
          -60mg Zinc-
          -Grounding strap I use this one specifically because it has a button like snap to connect and disconnect the wrist strap (for the times when I get up to pee and don't want to fumble with getting the wrist strap on and off in the dark.) I have it clamped onto the ground wire of a cable (with the positive and negative feeds cut off completely so I don't electrocute myself)

          All in all I'm sleeping deeper, waking up earlier, and just feeling amazing! I rarely get up to pee if I do at all (I used to be a 2-3 times a night guy). Makes me happy

                  • Asking for prayers! I have big news that I can't share online because I don't know who may be reading this blog... you can probably guess what it is (Just don't guess here) and whatever your guess is is probably right- pray for that guess. (Worse comes to worse your prayers bring other blessings my way ) - Oh gosh... I can hear my buddy byron in the back of my head going "pray for a wife!" because he always makes that joke at bible study... and then does it . It's not prayer for a wife though that would never hurt

                    • Okay, I'm praying for a wife for you and everything else unmentionable That ought to do it. Well, maybe I ought to start with a girlfriend instead of a wife. It's not really an instant process. Tee hee. She is fun and intelligent and warm and friendly and is all for primal and interested in many of the things you do and your parents love her

                      As for direction in life, good luck! I think I'm older than you, and I'm still working on it. Today, I want to work on my organic vegetable farm and be able to feed people who are hungry. Big pots of chicken vegetable soup for a village. Hmm! Wow! A farm. Yes. With some milk cows -- fresh, grass feed, organic cheese and cream! That would be utterly cool.

                      Thinking of you!

                          • Thanks Alessandra!!

                            So in other big news... I know I've mentioned this before but I figured I would post more official stuff here.

                            So 2 months from now I'll be on a plane to Quito Ecuador for a short term mission trip to support the people at Carmen Bajo Church. What I need from you guys is (more) prayer for the team and I as we prepare and fundraise.

                            Link to my personal support page can be found here: Short Term

                            Feel free to share support at the bottom of the page. It's open for anyone to leave messages! Love you guys'n'gals!

                              • Thank you Siobhan and Pam for leaving messages on my Missions page! The support (and prayer!) is always appreciated

                                I'm nervous about this trip... but it's starting to grow on me. To be honest I've never understood short term missions... heck I'd go as far as to say that they that they don't make sense to me. I initially never wanted to go on this trip. Time and time again though I see people wiser and stronger than me going and I have to find out why. I was going to brush this one off and not go but I kind of felt God's calling- the same one that got me involved with volunteering at the church in the first place. I understand that if I expect things from God that I must be willing to serve as well. That's not an "I'm doing this so that god will do stuff for me" but more an "I'm doing this BECAUSE god has been doing stuff for me".


                                Sleep stuff has been going so well that I passed out last night without plugging in my phone. I think I found one flaw in my sleep system though... I've been setting my alarm clock needlessly too early. Wheather I set it at 5:30 or 6:30 I get out of bed at 6:40... so I moved my alarm ahead an hour this morning and had no issues sticking with regular routine. All in all things are coming together quite nicely though!
