Birthday Man Q&A

Today is Matt's birthday! Two years ago, for his 28th b-day, I wrote a list of things I love about him. This year, I thought I'd let him tell his own story with a fun little Q&A.

So tell me, baby...

We'll start off easy.
What's your favorite food?
Sushi and Italian food.

What books are you reading right now?
The Gennessee Diary by Henri Nouwen, A Just Place by Jurgen Moltmann, and The Same Kind of Different as Me, by Ron Hall and Denver Moore.

What book has had the biggest impact on you? (and you can’t say “The Bible”)
Messy Spirituality by Mike Yaconelli

What was the last thing you purchased?

What song are you playing a lot these days?
Peace (A Communion Blessing from St. James Square) by Rich Mullins

What is your favorite thing to do with Kate?
Our (not so) Secret Daddy-Daughter Handshake

What would be your dream vacation?
Somewhere outdoors that feels completely untouched by human hands.

What was your most memorable birthday?
That's a tie between Disney World when I was 8 and Rome when I was 26 on our Honeymoon.

What has been your proudest moment?Winning the Preaching Award at Div School graduation in a class with a bunch of amazing preachers

What are you looking most forward to in your next thirty years?
Continuing to be a daddy!

And you are indeed a great daddy! I hope you have a wonderful birthday, and a great year ahead.
You can wish Matt a happy birthday too by contributing to his "Birthday for a Cause" over at One Day's Wages, where he's collecting for a charity called HEAL Africa.

Happy birthday, baby!
