I love how inquisitive she is! I also have to remind myself that she really does want answers when she asks questions. It’s too easy to dismiss children with, “Because I said so!” But that doesn’t always suffice! It may work for the moment because of frustration, but a moment of explanation might be what’s […]

They say, “Time heals all wounds!” But time doesn’t heal wounds. It’s not some magical cure all! It does take time and time is an important ingredient in healing, but it’s not the only ingredient! The medicines you take, lifestyle changes, attitude adjustments, new outlook on life, exercise, rehab, prayer, these things are what makes […]

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” Galatians 5:22-23. But the fruit of the Spirit: The works of the flesh seem overwhelming – both in us and around us. God is good enough and big enough to change […]

It’s easy for our children to get lost in their expectations of others constantly doing for them. It’s what we do! We provide! However, we need to develop them to have a servant’s heart and look for opportunities to help others.

I’ve said it before but it requires repeating: “Quality time comes from “quantity” time!” You can’t just flip a switch and have quality time happen!

Their perspective comes from having been inside the fog. The fog from the inside is beautiful because that’s how our enemy disguises himself and […]

Sometimes we lose our way in life! We forget to keep the most important things first and foremost in our focus! It’s easy to do because we have an enemy that wants to destroy our lives and all he’s looking for is an opportunity to whisper in our ear that he has something better. His […]

That moment! I had a few “moments” this year as a stay-at-home dad! I’ve loved my time with the kids but missed the ministry moments of the classroom and the last week of school. I would always write notes of encouragement to my students, reminding them how much they had grown throughout the year and […]

Jesus said, “Come unto me…” Too often we run to others for comfort instead of the One who can truly give us rest. “Labor” are the burdens we take upon ourselves, and “heavy laden” implies the burdens others put upon us. Either can be burdensome and steal your joy, peace, and health! It’s time to […]

Being a grandparent is one of the world’s greatest joys! My mother would always say, “If I had known the joy the grandchildren were, I would’ve had them first!” As I enjoyed the afternoon at The McWane Science Center, I noticed an elderly man walking by holding the hand of a young boy. I thought […]
