Great Group of Guest Bloggers

In a few hours I'll be heading back to the heartland of Iowa for a little vacation with my family. While I'm gone (July 9-17) I've asked a few of my friends to do some guest blogging. I greatly respect each of these guys and their walk with the Lord. They have modeled for me a genuine love for Jesus, his church, and this world. You will be blessed and challenged by their words.
