Thank you for your service…

It’s Memorial Day.  Though most Americans identify this holiday with a long weekend filled with barbecue, pool openings and fun with friends there are countless families missing a loved one on this somber holiday.

Awesome Humility

It is a special day in the Hensley house.  There will be food, and laughing, celebrating and reverie.  Today is Skyler’s birthday.  And I love it!  Some of you are blessed enough to know him; many of you sadly do not (I’m bummed for you if this is the case).  I get to be his … Continue reading

To my Mom…

I’m sure I’ll write a post about my first Mother’s Day experience this year.  (It’s been awesome and sweet and the day is only half way through).  But I want to make sure I take time to publicly thank my own Mom in front of God and the internet.  Last year I did a facebook … Continue reading

Kony 2012 – My two cents and the controversy

I am about to step onto my soapbox.  So this may be a bit long.  Consider yourself warned. So as many of you may be aware there has been an incredible media campaign launched by Invisible Children to make Joseph Kony (you can read about his atrocities against humanity here) famous in 2012 and thereby … Continue reading

Prayers for the Greater Cleveland Area…

My heart is heavy for the people of the Greater Cleveland Area today.  My dear friend Katie Wetherbee penned a poignant response to the tragedy that took place this morning (you can read it here). I am at a loss for words.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you today, and in the … Continue reading
