Faith vs. Works




I highly recommend taking a few minutes to read this post by my friend Seth. It seems like the faith vs. works debate has been running for most of church history and I think this is a very clear explanation of the relationship between the two.

Face Shots


Deep snow and face shots with my best friend Seth was a really nice way to start my day today. Especially since I've been working a ton and had not skied for a little while.

Huckleberry Hot Springs


Yesterday was a beautiful day to spend in a hot spring. My friend Andy, his parents, and another friend joined me. It's always amazing to me to sit comfortably (or even be too hot) in water surrounded by snow. The small bright green plants that are able to grow in the tiny border between the snow and hot water always surprise me too. 

On our hike out, we saw 6 or 7 otters fishing and playing on the banks together. I've never seen river otters as big as they were. Somewhere between 5-6 feet from nose to tail. I really enjoyed getting to watch them fish and play in the snow.

Skiing with the Bleckingers and friends


My friend Daniel's brother Andy is back in town for a visit and a few other friends showed up to ski too. This was one of the best snow days that I've skied yet this year.











Baby Emma


My friends Keith and Lisa just had a little baby girl. Emma really is pretty adorable! I've enjoyed getting to hang out with her and hold her while she naps.
