“Knowledge puffs up but love builds up” 1 Corinthians 8:1 I left Lone Star Taquería with a full mind and heart. Multiply Goodness blog co-founder Emily Freeman invited me to lunch after the busyness of the spring semester died down.

We just got back from Disney World. Hot, humid days full of walking and waiting. Thrills, jumps, swoops, and screams. And unexpectedly, time to ponder.
