PDX Leadership retreat
This past weekend, I had the privilege of being with 50 student leaders for our campuses in the Portland Metro area. It was fun to hear their heart and see their willingness to proclaim Christ in their words and deeds. I gave a talk on living out your faith in the midst of this world and what does it look like to have a personal ministry.
Was able to converse with 6 students at length from Portland State, University of Portland, and Lewis and Clark specifically. They continually remind me of why I do what I do and I am blessed.

Smells Like Teen Spirit
The vote was Smells Like Teen Spirit. I actually like it better 'cause it is a quieter song but to be honest I couldn't remember who sang it. Carla and Terry helped me out today and reminded me that it was Nirvana. (it was their first real hit on the charts)

New Game: Ticket to Ride
Last night I was celebrating a friend's birthday and we played a game called Ticket to Ride. The board is an image of the U.S. or you can get other games for other countries. The cities are connected by potential train routes and your task is to finish the routes before the end of the game.
I wish I could say I won... actually it would have been great if Shasta won since it was her birthday, but alas neither one of us did. Oh, well... I've long ago learned and continue to learn that most of the time I will not come in 1st. But I can always try.

A Honken Pizza
~ where are the students hanging out?
~ are their affinity groups that hang out in a different location?
~ what makes this campus unique?
~ what unites the campus together?
This past week I got the chance to understand and know Eastern Washington University as well as the surrounding community of Cheney, WA.
Every campus has a nearby pizza parlor, but I never have seen this before... the sizes were small, medium, large, GIANT, and HONKEN. So, of course we had to order the Honken pizza and experience it! Making memories with the students and I'll never forget the Honken pizza moment!
As a side note: the pizza maker does not shout for joy when a honken pizza is ordered. They moan and groan pretty loudly. It makes me wonder, "Why put it on the menu?"

Then going to Spokane to be with our local leaders whom I enjoy tremendously
Going to Eastern Washington Univeristy to visit students. I've never been there.
Going back to Portland...
That's life in a nutshell.

Loucks Sesame Snaps
Loucks Sesame Snaps
I have never heard of them but apparently Erin saw these and thought of me... (in case you didn't notice... "Loucks" is in the title of the snack).
So at lunch I had the snack... they are pretty good. It is like a peanut brittle bar but with sesame seeds. It makes you thirsty when you eat it.
On the package, it says, "A nutritious snack"; however, when I looked at the nutrients it definitely isn't.... hope deceit isn't in my genes and I just didn't know it!
