One of the most difficult things about my father passing away and laying his body to rest Tuesday was seeing the pain of loss on my children’s faces and knowing they are heartbroken. The hurt, numbness and the tears on their cheeks was almost unbearable to handle. The sadness in their eyes was overwhelming because […]
Welcome to "Let's Ask Dad"
A place to find wit, wisdom, random thoughts and positive encouragement.
I’ve long believed in the idea of “Seek to understand before trying to be understood!” It’s much like “Others don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care!” Both of these quotes cause us to listen before speaking. It helps us to ask questions so we are better equipped to make […]
Joshua 5My current study….It’s cool how God dried up the waters and allowed the Israelites to cross over on dry land just like he parted the Red Sea! Even cooler…The kings, who believed they could conquer the Israelites, were broken when they heard about God doing this great miracle. It says, “their hearts melted.” They […]
Words! Who’s using you and your words to influence others? Life and death are in the power of the tongue! Speaking life means being bold enough to call wrong wrong!We aren’t called to be “happy,” we are called to be “holy!” Happiness is a choice! Holiness is a lifestyle!

I will admit, yesterday, March 28, 2021, was one of the very few times I actually took “shelter” in advance of a tornado. I mean, actually got into a “safe-space” with the family and put helmets on everyone. We hadn’t been there but just a few minutes when we lost power and were sitting in […]
Notice that the quote contrasts between what is right and easy, not wrong. Most of us would find it easy to make that choice. Knowing that choosing wrong leads to a path of destruction and disappointment wouldn’t make sense at all. But to choose between right and easy at least causes one to pause and […]
Don’t let others cause you to panic or become fearful. We know that these may seem like uncertain times, but we serve a certain God! “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”2 Timothy 1:7
The throne is for God; that is where He rules and reigns. The altar is for us; that is where we find cleansing and purging from sin. We should never confuse the two! #LetsAskDad #EnduringWord
