Kenz and I had the privilege of having some friends from out of state over. We hosted them and really enjoyed spending time in the mountains— doing quite a bit of hiking.

That mixed with my harmonizing personality meant that I never spoke a hard opinion until I was 24 or so.
When our friends were over, they so graciously asked hard questions of me. My wife, also, has been so good to me in this way. She has pressed and pressed to know what I really feel and think. She knows the value that it will bring to our relationship.

I know I am a bad writer. I look at some of the things I write and cringe because what I am reading is not what was in my head when I wrote it. I start to get really worried that sometime in the future people will read some of these posts and really hold it against me.

Thank you, really. Its cool that I can write and people see it. I challenge you to comment on the things that I write so that I can get better at it. Challenge the way I word things, ask for clarification, and help me see reality more robustly.
I don’t take it lightly that some people read this blog, so, know this. I am getting better at this because
I am a bad writer but I am going to get better at it.
