Post #100

I launched FaithfulAndFruitful.com about 10 months ago and today marks post #100. I thought I’d take a quick look back at some favorite posts and links, as well as what I’ve learned.

Luke Simmons

I was born and raised in Denver, CO and lived there through high school. Then I moved to Champaign, IL where I attended the University of Illinois and played on the Fighting Illini baseball team. I was married in December, 2001 to Molly, who I met at the U of I. In June of 2002, we moved to Phoenix and have been here ever since. In July of 2006, we welcomed a baby girl, Abby, into our family.

  1. Congrats Luke! LaDonna and I enjoy your posts very much. We were missing the “Weekend Updates” and was glad to see it back recently. I think my favorite (well, most impactful–not sure I like being ‘called out’, but…) post was “The Obvious Secret to Christian Leadership”. As I said at the time, the post is sadly needed and convicting; a much needed daily reminder. Keep up the great work, Luke!
