Lovely Mountains

About an hour ago, Jess and I landed in Nashville. Our purpose for coming here is two-fold. First and foremost, we are here to see my brother and his family. Second, we are here to run a race. Jess is signed up to run the full marathon at the St. Judes Country Music Rock’N’Roll marathon […]


Race Ready

Posted on April 23rd, 2012 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

With months of training pounding my feet down on the pavement, it is finally race week. I am just days away from my second marathon. I am excited to try this again as I have done several longer runs than the last training. I feel like my body is a bit more ready due to […]


Ridin’ da Bike

As the weather has been steadily improving, the whole community has been waking up. It used to be that Jess and I could run for miles and not see another person walking, let alone running. Now the fair-weather, winter-afflicted souls our out about creating the hustle and bustle that make Bozeman so enjoyable in the […]


Peanut Butter Cookies (to die for!)

Peanut Butter Cookies

Last year I found this amazing Peanut Butter Cookie recipe. I like it because it uses less peanut butter than most recipes. Peanut butter can tend to be a little bit overwhelming. Not that this is a healthy recipe by any means. There is a lot of butter and a lot of sugar. That is […]


“Gospel Centered Discipleship”

Posted on April 13th, 2012 by Jess Life

I recently picked up the book “Gospel Centered Discipleship” by Jonathan K. Dodson. It was a book that Brent has actually been wanting to read for a while. It helps that the foreword is by Matt Chandler. Matt Chandler is a pastor at The Village Church down in Texas. We both have spent time recently […]


3rd Marathon??

Posted on April 10th, 2012 by Jess Run/Hike/Bike

I think so! Last night I got an email with my special link to register for the Nike Women’s Marathon (NWM) down in San¬†Francisco¬†in October. If you remember a little while back, I was in a dilema of whether or not I should run this race. With a good friend already living down there and […]


Worshiping a Living God

Posted on April 9th, 2012 by Jess Life

How awesome is it that we serve and worship a living God? He loved/loves me so much that He died for all of my sins and yours. I love that we celebrate Jesus’ resurrection. What a great time to bring it all back to him. If I were to only do this everyday. This is […]


Someone’s got a new bicycle!

As many of you know, Jess had her 25th birthday this last week. An early birthday gift came in the form of a new road bike that we had been saving up for. We went to Owenhouse to pick up the Giant Avail 2 after I arrived home from working in Helena on Tuesday. We […]

My Birthday Cupcake

Yesterday I turned 25! What a great 25 years I have had. Brent had to work over in Helena, so we were up bright and early. Before he headed out the door, he made me some tasty french toast. After he left, I was able to spend some time in God’s word. What a great […]
