Dan Cruver

My friend, Dan Cruver, a former pastor and college professor of Bible and Theology, has just been hired by this cool adoption agency for orphans. The reason this is particularly redemptive and wonderful news is the tragedy that lies behind it.

Dan and his wife, Melissa, lost their little son Daniel Jr at the age of 3 due to a serious brain disorder caused by a genetic defect. They began to actively pursue adoption after his diagnosis. Their story is powerfully moving and you can read more on his blog.

Seen in the picture their daughter, Hannah (10), and their two adopted African-American boys, Isaiah (5) and Noah (3).

I love Dan's heart and his passion. And by the way his daughter is an excellent writer (seen below with her brother, Isaiah) and what's more, a Master of the cliff hanger (my favorite). You can check out her blog to see for yourself.

Dan was the guy who did the really cool thing of starting a photo challenge for The Jesus Storybook Bible and the interview.

i think i can, i think i can

Henry Ford (1863-1947) said,
“If you think you can,
or if you think you can’t,
you’re right.”

He also said other great things like...

"Any customer can have a car (Model T) painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black."


"If I'd asked consumers what they wanted, they would have asked for faster horses."

no good reason not to take that risk, then, and go ahead and do that thing you think you cannot do. speaking of which I better go and write.
