• Our Mandate

    We have a mandate to turn this patch of earth into a paradise. Imagine Greening the Desert meets the Apostle Paul. Life was supposed to be simpler. Simpler than most of us live, anyhow. There’s too much stress in the life we’ve built that we were never designed to carry. The simpler, more rudimentary tasks […]


  • Settle It Tonight: You WILL Enter Your Prophetic Destiny

    I’m here to tell you that it’s going to happen. I don’t care what you’ve feared. I don’t care what you’ve wondered. It’s going to happen. It’s not unconditional, however.

Lately, if ANYTHING popped up on the radar, we’ve considered it. We came to a […]


  • What it Means to Establish a Vision for Your Life

    Mommypotamus and I spent some time this past weekend at a local coffee shop talking over our vision. It’s a vision two years in the making, and we’re not there yet.


  • There’s Something Prophetic and Pioneering in All This

    Hey, everyone… Daniel here. As I began to explain in my last blog post, we’re doing the family blog thing. Originally, we were going to start a third blog for all our family stories, and Heather and I both sort of just agreed that the family blog should reside right here at Mommypotamus.com (UPDATE: The family […]
