The incredible new song from Micah Tyler called “New Today” recently reminded me of when I was baptized as a kid, and how badly I wanted to be baptized again years later after I had fallen away from Christ.
I honestly didn’t realize I was a morning person until I worked at a coffee shop after finishing college. I was often peppered with questions like “How many cups of coffee have you had this morning!?”, or “I’ll just have whatever Allen’s drinking!”. The thing is, most mornings I hadn’t even had a single cup yet!
On Uplifting Mornings, I may not be able to serve you a fresh cup of coffee (I’ll see what I can do if you come by the studio), but I can serve up joyful stories, encouraging conversation, and some Christly love and compassion!
When I’m not spending mornings with you, you’ll find me with my wonderful wife Lara, 3 year old son Sylvan, baby girl Samara, our Corgi Tucker, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Cricket, and our feisty cat named Riddle…it’s a blessedly busy household!

So, when it feels like all of this pain is never gonna end - Brought to my knees by all of these things I don’t understand, don’t understand - I will let the weight of my fear fall like sand - Out of my hands and into Yours
