What’s my history with IHOP? I’d been to a JHOP (Justice House of Prayer) event at Harvard when I was an undergrad. Years later I was reintroduced to IHOP, which I talk about here. My intro to JHOP is mentioned … Continue reading First Time at the IHOP HQ, Crazy
My advancement document is going well, and I find myself better at explaining my research more than ever. As I think about all the stories I have to tell from this past year, I’m somewhat unsure of where to start. … Continue reading The Time I Went to Knoxville
So, if you want to know what The Call is, you can read the post where I wrote about it. I wanted to share the adventure for me “Behind The Call.” I have many stories like these, and here is yet … Continue reading Behind The Call, Sacramento
Once upon a time, I promised God that if he gave me an interesting life, I’d write about it. Man, I owe God so many blog posts. The goal this summer is to write less descriptively about each story to … Continue reading In Addition to Writing My Advancement Document…

I was nervous, but I didn’t know why. Two of my dear friends were leading worship for the IV Grad Winter Retreat. The one where PhD students from the bay area get together once a year around Valentine’s Day. So, what does it feel like to worship God with people getting PhD’s?
