Little Brother

I have a younger brother. We used to beat each other up all the time. He was a punk kid who got on my nerves, then he was a crazy artist teenager who was more popular than me. .

It was awful, from a teenager’s perspective.

But now he’s a grownup. He’s married and has three fantastic kids.

He led worship this morning in church by doing a painting during the Lord’s Supper. He painted while our awesome musicians played. The painting was of the bread and the cup, but then he turned it upside down, added a little bit, and it was the face of Jesus.

God used him today, and it was beautiful.

He is no longer a punk kid, or a crazy teenager. He’s a talented, funny, godly man who wants to use art to serve Jesus.

I am so proud of him. I am so thankful that mom and dad didn’t lock him in his room forever, even though mom threatened to do so. I think she let him out when she realized he was just going to draw on the walls if he was in there.

He’s come a long way from the guy who wanted astroturf instead of carpet. He’s not the same person as the kid who filled up mom’s new car with water from the hose.

Can you tell I’m thoroughly enjoying telling on him?

I love my brother. Check out his art at

I hope your day has been blessed by someone awesome. Mine has!

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
