Thank you David Bonderman!

Because of Mr. Bonderman's generosity, I have been given the opportunity to travel the world and learn about culture. As a Bonderman Travel Fellow I plan on traveling through Western and Eastern Europe, East Africa, Northern India and Southeast Asia. I am excited to experience new and amazing things that will better enable me to empower and inspire the next generation of young students.

Intentionality in all things...

I think its important and healthy for us, as christ-followers (aka human beings trying to figure out what it means to live in true love and joy), to move towards a place of making EVERY decision (no matter how small or big) with intentionality. This means seeking the spirit (Truth) in love, weighing the consequences and taking action.

My thoughts are geared towards facebook right now...I don't think facebook is completely and entirely wrong (for everybody). BUT I do think its important that we intentionally make healthy decisions, weighing the pros and cons, for things as seemingly unimportant as facebook.

here is a beautifully written and brief article on the subject.
