In the midst of the my-alley-is-full-of-trees crisis, I called Brad to say: “You are not going to believe this. The alley is full of trees.” okay, so maybe it was more dramatic than that…

In the background I could hear some commotion—think Extreme Makeover: Home Edition meets Saved by the Bell.

Now I understand.

Meet Brad.


In case you missed it, we had an off-the-charts flood back in May that left many in dire straits. If you’d like to help this family rebuild, shoot me an e-mail. I’ll connect you to the project directly.

And, hats-off to the forty high school students and their leaders who are giving their time, energy and resources to help somebody. I love that.
