A Mountain We Could Climb: A Guitar Story
"It seemed like a mountain we could climb" said Aaron Eubanks of the idea to build custom guitars that emerged during a game of cards. And climb they did. Eubanks, with co-conspirators Jason Crittenden and Billy Wigert, founded Mad N8V Guitars this past year. It's a story about three guys, all members of the Cherokee Nation, with a crazy idea. It's a story about the craftsmanship of making custom guitars and the learning that comes with it, but mostly it's a story about believing in yourself and following your dreams.

Broken, But Full
Memories of loved ones too soon gone are kept alive through stories, stories that tell who they were and who they still are. Recently, I gave an interview about becoming grateful through tragedy. In the interview, I discussed our journey through the loss of our son, Jacob. Even after the interview, there's still lots to tell about how our hearts are broken, but full. Full of memories of the good he put into the world. These particular memories involve a CD found in his car and a simple trip to the grocery store turned into something more. The stories behind them leave our hearts broken, but full.
