Hiking up Huron Peak

I am John, the author of this blog, but also a father, friend, teacher, singer, dancer, back-country mountain hiker, and most importantly a disciple and learner.  I created The Hill of Beans as a forum for discussing what matters in this crazy world and to encourage my readers to simplify their lives, savor the short time they have here on earth, and think about that which is important and lasting.
