MY STORY BY BIG DADDY WEAVE
I made the trip to Oregon this past weekend to take my little sister to her first Ducks football game. We had a blast even though it was 46 and pouring. About half way through the 3rd quarter a young man decided he want to try and start the wave in the stadium.
One person out of 60,000… the odds aren’t in his favor. I watched him for about 45 minutes try to pump up the crowd, but each time the wave would die about two sections over. He was determined. After trying 25 times and failing each time… He tried again, with the same enthusiasm as the 1st try.
Was just talking to a friend about my being nervous for a new adventure we are both part of. This is the week where the money that's needed will hopefully be raised for it. It's the "hopefully" part that makes me nervous!
But they pointed out two things:
1. "Any great call of God has three stages: impossible, difficult and done." That's a quote from Chris Tomlin. How often do so many of us want to skip that middle step? And, how many people in the Bible, when called by God, suddenly had cake walk lives? Almost none of them. Not Moses. Not Joseph. Not Paul. And certainly not Jesus.

November is National Adoption Month... This month I'd like to share several different camera angles on Adoption and Foster Care. A good friend to our family is serving on the front lines when it comes to Foster Care and Adoption in Las Vegas. RoseAnna shared this blog post and I love how it ties all of us to adoption... because we have a personal relationship with God.
Foster Care and Adoption have played a huge roll in building my family. My wife Vanessa and I have adopted 4 kids and are currently Foster Parents to 3 kids. November is National Adoption Month and I wanted to share some information if you're interested in pursuing Foster Care or Adoption.
Jeff from Tenth Ave North talks about the challenge/blessings of raising toddlers and how it's taught him about marriage.
He also talks about the dynamic of YES and saying NO. (Family vs the job)
Dear Chef Phillip, What is the best way to know how to grill a perfect burger? -Nikole from Missoula, MT
When you see the blood come to the surface of the meat, it is time to flip! The more blood at the surface, the more the meat has cooked all the way through. I personally like really juicy burgers, so when I just start to see the blood surface I flip it. I remove the burger from the heat just as the (already) cooked surface starts to show signs of moisture. Only flip the burger once. - Chef Phillip
I love pork, but I'm wondering if there is a shortcut or a different angle to make it a little healthier? - Josh from Hesperia, CA
