The word just makes me smile. When I think of this state, I have warm (and cold) memories of skiing with friends, eating steaming vegetable soup, hiking epic mountain ranges, and gazing at the stars while breathing deeply of cool crisp mountain air.
Currently, I’m in Colorado attending Focus Leadership Institute, a semester long program created to develop and equip Christian leaders for the rest of their lives to effectively show the love of Christ and the truth of the gospel to the world. This picture is taken from the front of the Focus campus and you can see Pike’s Peak in the background.
The people here are phenomenal and I have some crazy (and crazy awesome) roommates. Meet Patrick, Matt, and Jacob. These guys are studs: Matt played college football, when we first arrived Jacob was hand tooling a sheath for a knife made from a buck’s horn, and at least once a day, Patrick bust into some sweet soulful gospel music.
Throughout this semester, I want to post pictures and projects that I get to work on as well as share relevant lessons I’m learning. We have some of the most most genuine, loving, brilliant professors in the world and we have about 70 books on our reading list. I’m just hoping I can soak in and retain half of what we go through.
