What does it take to make us stop and think about life and its meaning? Do we really need to experience some sort of life-changing tragedy? It was just about a week ago when another young man reached his tipping point and took out his frustration, anger, and depression on his local community and killed […]
Kids growing up – it’s so encouraging, and yet so hard. We just dropped off Kenna, who is now gone for a week – she’s working the mission field; staying at a stranger’s house (at least to her mom and I) and working long hours sharing Christ’s love to kids. As a parent, it’s both […]
Thinking of Father’s Day this year, I can think of only one gift that brings a salve to the weary soul; that my kids are walking with Jesus. Dads, remember the phrase, “more is caught than taught.” Walk a life worthy of being copied – Jesus is our Guide.
