I’m not making resolutions for 2016. I figure that, between a wedding and various side endeavors, I have enough going on. This year is about actually creating instead of telling myself that I’ll “be more creative.”

A word came to mind, and the idea of a word of the year seemed like a good compromise between a list of resolutions and a year with no goals whatsoever. And then I thought about last years word, yield, and how easily the word faded from my psyche. Another word of the year was not what I needed.

But that word was still stuck in my brain. What to do with it? An idea began to take shape– a project that world allow me to explore words and concepts until I had my fill.

That’s the #inawordproject in a nutshell. I’ll take a word that I want to know more about and investigate it–through the lenses of scripture, literature, interviews, and art. And I’ll document the process here. 

No promises that I’ll make any earth shattering revelations, but I will do my best to help you think differently and potentially differently. The #inawordproject is collaborative by definition, so I fully expect you to do the same for me.

You might be curious as to what word sparked this whole project. The word is truth.

And with that, the #inawordproject begins. I promise to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God.
