Revitalizing the Blog: Simple Family, Not-as-Complex Life

OK, I know I haven't blogged in a long while -- a year to be exact. You could say I've had writer's block, but that's not all of it. The truth is this blog never developed into exactly what I envisioned...but I also couldn't pull myself to do it -- because the old one had to end.

I wanted the blog to be about me and life with my wonderful family -- a family that wanted so desperately to be just simple folk, but somehow got thrust into one so complex Cristi and I really needed an executive assistant to organize our life. Unfortunately, the source of that complexity -- Lauren, and to a lesser extent Brennan -- took over the blog. That's okay, though, because so many people are so captivated by Lauren and her story that you're probably much more interested in that than you are about the remainder of my life. The good news is that our life isn't quite as complex as it has been (see the next post):

So, the time has come: It's time to revitalize the blog -- or at least make the attempt. This time, I'd like to include more musings about the other facets of my life -- the command job, random thoughts while shaving, silly family-isms, the struggle to live out loud for God, and even some more Lauren stories. I also intend to make the posts shorter to make new ones a little less daunting. I realize that may not be what some of you are looking for, but that's okay. Thanks for sharing Lauren's journey with us. I hope it has blessed you as much as it has blessed us!
