EP02 – Baby, Take a Break

Does your spouse need a break? Do YOU need a break? In today’s podcast, we talk about what time looked like for us before and after kids, and what we’ve intentionally made time for to keep ourselves and each other from feeling like we’re losing it. 😂 We also cover that time we had a kid, how Kirsten got sucked back into a classic cult fiction series, and why this podcast could end up being a once...

You Must Ask for Critiques

A few weeks ago I was traveling up to the mountains of Virginia from Atlanta by myself for a few hours and made a few phone calls to pass the time. Over the last year or so I have found myself actually liking to make phone calls instead of texting. That has nothing to do with this story, but maybe a post for a later date. On one particular phone call a buddy and I got into the discussion of that...

“One” Step at a Time

Either way, you are still with me right? So let’s continue. This...

HD Video Upgrade: FOR-A

Port City Community Church (PC3) moved into their very first permanent facility during the summer of 2008 with a full SD-SDI system in the main auditorium. This was a major upgrade from our existing mobile solution which consisted of all composite video lines that found their way to an old Panasonic MX50 video switcher. The new system at the time was pushed by a Ross Synergy 100 SD switcher with...

Listen, Evaluate, and Then Decide

Lately I’ve caught myself in conversations telling others to listen, evaluate, and decide a lot. It may be coming across as advice to others because I have been trying to engage in feedback lately with those three words in mind. Here is what I mean in short form: Listen Stop talking and just listen. If you are married you know what I mean here. It’s very hard to do this part, but it is the best...
