For all the haters, skeptics, doubters, and those who bailed on the boys during the season…shame on you.  It wasn’t pretty but we did it.  4 straight Division Titles.  Records don’t mean anything now.  Bring on Baltimore. #tigers #alcentralchamps #4yearsinarow #mlb #playoffs #octoberbaseball #detroittigers #blessyouboys #cleanslate #sundayfunday #hatersgonnahate #detroit (at Comerica Park, Detroit, MI)

Sunsets, campfires, smores, cider, donuts…great night with our Woodside D team leaders getaway this weekend.  Humbled to see God bring this group of people together. @woodsidedetroit #woodsidedetroit #mypeople #myfamily #myfriends #oikos #getaway #puremichigan #teamleaders #campfire #cideranddonuts #upnorth #detroit  (at Middle of Nowhere, MI)

Up north with our Woodside D team leaders for this beautiful fall weekend.  So thankful we are able to get away to spend together as a family and hear from God and His heart for our church. @woodsidedetroit #woodsidedetroit #fall #leadership #listen #stillness #team #churchfamily #fun #vision #future #Godspeak

Today was fun partying with some of the many Woodside D volunteers!!  So many people invest their blood, sweat and tears to different ministries within our church…that is what makes who we are special & powerful.  When people take ownership the church becomes a irresistible  community and instrument in the hands of God.  Thank you to all of you who live this out…words can’t capture how I feel.  So much exciting stuff ahead.  I love you! @woodsidedetroit #churchinthecity #woodsidedetroit #volunteers #volunteerappreciationparty #ownership #service #servants #othersaboveself #heartandsoulofministry #indebtedtoallofyou #ministry #servantleaders #detroitlove #detroit (at Backyard)

Today after work I stopped out in front of my apartment building  to talk with George (left) who lives there and her friend Gloria who came to visit her today.  They have been friends for 68 years.  They shared stories of what the city used to be and how much it has changed.  I love just listening to people who have lived in this city and watching their faces light up reliving memories of once was an incredible time in history here.  They’ve seen and been through a lot but their spirits are excited for where things are headed.  #history #truefriends #detroitcityapartments #stories #memories #remember #relive #detroitstories #detroit (at Detroit City Apartments)

Stopped at the Apple Store in Somerset today.  Every time I walk into that mall now that I live in Detroit I find myself staring in awe of the wealth people have that they just consider getting by.  These are the moments I realize how much my life and perspective are truly changing. #lovedetroit #whatisactuallyenough #americannightmare #mylifeismorethanblessed #somerset #suburbs #livinthedetroitdream #takemehome #homesick #perspective #lifechange #detroit #richinstufforpeople #vsco #vscocam (at The Somerset Collection)
