.30 before 30.
here you have it team... i am going to do these 30 things before i turn 30. exactly one year from right now. here's how it works:
at Donald Miller's advice, i will: write a good story, take somebody with me and include God in the process :)
- i have 30 things to do
- i have tried to pick things that will challenge my mind, body and faith
- i will blog about them all today and then as i do them, so my hope is that this will keep me accountable to doing all 30 in the next 365 days. stay tuned if you wanna watch these stories unfold!
