Years Go By

December 6, 2013

5 years ago today, I had the most important conversation of my life I was preparing to start my first bike tour across the nation with Bike For The Light. I had just quit my job, sold nearly everything I owned, and moved into my parents guest room to get ready to go cross country […]


Deformity & All

January 29, 2013

November 8th, 1970. A date that many of you weren’t alive in. The rest of you probably don’t remember it. It wasn’t a special date. For most people. Unless you are named Tom Dempsey. Born in 1947, Tom had more reasons than most to give up. He was born as a normal baby except he […]

So last month I was in Springfield, Missouri. If you don’t know, that is where the National Office of the Assemblies of God is located. Its a pretty cool place. While I was there they filmed an interview with me for their website. Here it is, in case you wanna see it. Fun times. peace […]


My favorite day of the year

July 6, 2010

Its not about the weather, its about forgetting the whether’s. You can decide that you are not going to do what you should based on outside influences that you have no control over. But its YOU and how you use those things as excuses that depicts what kind of life you are going to live. […]

Week Off

June 28, 2010

I am in Florida for a few days off. It is so needed. Last year I didn’t take any time off. Left in January and didn’t come home till August. That was just way too long. So this year we have had 3 trips home. This is the last trip home before the end of […]

Online Missionaries

June 23, 2010

People in ministry that don’t use the modern technology and internet amaze me (and not in a good way). Today was great. I got to spend a few hours with Pastor Michael Smith from Harvest Ridge Church in St. John, Indiana. He is a great guy that is growing a church in this community. Last […]


Computer Woes

June 22, 2010

I need a new computer. Its time. I have a great ole Mac PowerBook that I got new like 8 years ago. She still runs like a champ and has not given me any issues over the better part of the last decade. But it is time to move on.┬áIt was top of the line […]


Daddy Dearest

June 21, 2010

Today is Fathers Day. It also happens to be my dad’s birthday too. I love my pops so much. He is my example in life. The guy I call every time I have a question about almost anything. He shows me daily what it means to really be a man of God, a true leader, […]
