Welcome to Tuesday,

Tonight I had a conversation with my friend Emily Smucker beside a drum set in a Missouri basement. Emily lives in Oregon, so most of the time she is about as far away from my interviewing apparatus as one can be. But on this weekend we met in the middle for the wedding of a dear friend. After the pictures had been taken, vows had been spoken, and pizza had been eaten (catered pizza at a wedding – no joke), we sat down and talked about methods of communication, our heroes, and why getting a degree can make choosing a career path more difficult.

Today we’re giving away Bridge to Terabithia – Katherine Paterson and The Beautiful Letdown – Switchfoot.


Here’s a link to the book Emily wrote.

And here is Emily’s blog where she posts cool stuff.

Congratulations to Monday’s winners: Simone Smucker (Over and Underneathe) and Steve Chupp (Peter Pan).

    1. Haha yeah my thoughts were a little scattered there. I was going to say Craig Greenfield. He writes some really insightful stuff about missions.
