When Your Kid is a Jerk at Christmas

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN - Christmas. Full of romanticized ideals of what the world is, or should be. We are celebrating the birth of hope, of grace, and our forever King.

We are trying to find our proverbial Bing Crosby Christmas, but it’s buried alive under mounds of defective string lights, years of disappointment, and the weight of our gritty reality: life is not as perfect as the cover of a 1955 Christmas album. «Read the rest of this article»

I’ve been working with Zack (and sometimes my oldest son, Joriah) on his store build out; the cabinetry, the pergola-styled booth seating, the counter tops, administrative stuff to prep for opening, and what feels like a million other things. «Read the rest of this article»
