I have been cursed with a family tradition of endometriosis. I guess it all started back with Eve, but the Potts women must have eaten a lot of bad apples along the way. In a nutshell, endometriosis – or as we cool cats call it, “endo”, – is “a disease that occurs when tissue similar […]
“And the angel said to her, ‘Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus’”– Luke 1:30 I’ve been finding myself asking for the Lord’s favor quite a bit lately. Not to conceive […]
December 16th is, for us, an anniversary of sorts. It’s not our wedding, or our proposal, or even our first date. I’m not sure even sure what to call it, other than just the day I wrote this poem. A week before December 16th, about a month before Jenna and I started dating, I asked a group of […]
Each year, Jenna’s father writes a Thanksgiving article in the newspaper, which has always been Jenna’s favorite column of the year. Darrell got his inspiration from Furman Bisher and we are getting our inspiration from Darrell. This year we made it into a week-long project to try and capture our list into photos as well. We […]

Passion, put to work, feeds the soul’s confidence. Confidence, when tapped into, fuels the soul’s desire. Passion that is not used can flicker and die, along with the very desire to engage in life itself. Many of those who grew up with me know something about me that my new friends do not: I play […]
Last night there was a big storm blowing through Metter. Evan and I sat and watched the lightning out the window for a while and then went to stand on the porch. I love being outside at the beginning of a storm when the wind is strong and cool and you can feel it approaching. […]
It’s New Years again and I find myself back where 2014 started for me..Metter, GA on the Simmons farm for a giant fire and $170 worth of fireworks with many of my closest friends. But as I drove south this year, a few days early, everything was different. Last year I came hesitantly, unsure whether […]
