Hello, I’m Tim!

Hello, I’m Tim!

If you’re new to my blog, welcome! I live with my wife of 39+ years in Bellevue, WA. I have six children, four daughters-in law, one son-in-law, and four g-babies so far. I get to work (or volunteer) with a few organizations that contribute deeply to philanthropy, cultural shifts, social change, and personal transformation, including: Pushpay, eChurchGiving, Equitas, and Real Impact Missions.

oppsWith the exception of our annual Christmas letter post (look for it around Dec. 8th), I am taking a leave of absence from my blog to allow laser-focus in other areas of my life. I will continue to publish one Tweet daily around the subject of leadership, generosity & philanthropy. You can check out my feed here. You can check me out on LinkedIn here. I will also continue to publish family-related (cute babies and more) pictures on Instagram. Click here to follow.


Anticipation + reflection


Together, Joy and I walked into her future… with the man God handpicked for her (he’s the one on the right below).

It was everything I anticipated… and then some.


The panoramic view of NYC as a backdrop only helped to set the mood.

Thanks to creative genius, Craig (and his over-the-top, well-executed team of helpers) the venue was spectacularly appointed.

That’s Emily Cline. I married her and her husband three years ago in KC.

Cookies from their favorite places vs. the traditional cake. Yes, those are Oreo’s in the jar… Angel’s fav.

That’s Craig (above) carefully designing each of the planter boxes that adorned each table.

As a little icing on the cookie (see what I did there?), Brad officiated bi-lingually with some of the best chosen words you could ever hear at a wedding. Sorry no pic.

It was fun to have family and friends from near and far stay together at The Paper Factory Hotel. It allowed for many serendipitous meet ups and conversations.

And now, a week later, it’s good to be home.

Thanks for the memories!
