How Do You Measure Success?

The big house would fall down, the money would be spent, the clothes would be outgrown, and the babbles would easily be broken. Why measure success in things that tarnish?

Simply Being Home

Arriving home was always extra special when I was greeted at the door knowing that “absence makes
the heart grow fonder” on both sides.

Letting Go

If I am clutching onto something because I’m so afraid of losing it or that relationship, then maybe that’s not really love anyway. 

A Better Graduation Speech

If given the chance, I would’ve run on stage, halted the processional music, and read to them a better graduation speech.

The Omnipresence of God

Right at this very moment, God is with me; He is close to you; He is next to everyone and everything else in the entire universe.

He Matters, Too

On this Father’s Day, I want to give a special shout out to all the dads in the waiting. I just want to remind you that God sees you.

Only A Dad by Edgar Guest

Doing, with courage stern and grim, 
The deeds that his father did for him. 
This is the line that for him I pen, 
Only a dad, but the best of men.

The Infinitude of God

If the accuracy of the definition of ‘infinity’ is to be considered, it must be inarguable that there is actually nothing and no one in the universe that is infinite — nothing and no one except God.

The Eternity of God

God is able to see the future, not because He can foresee it but because He has already lived in it—just as He is living in the present, just as He has lived in the past.

Invisible Afflictions

If you can remember that someone’s mental health is just as important and relevant as your physical health, you’re already helping more than you know.

The Life of David Part VII: Fatherhood

David was a much better king than he was a father. Many men who are great at their jobs or in church work fail to lead the next generation of their family

Chasing Our God-Given Vision

In a world that pulls for our undivided attention at every turn, we all need a God-given vision to push us forward. Things don’t have to be perfect in order for us to begin what God has laid on our hearts. We can start sharing Jesus right where we are.

Transformed By Love

We are all born for connection. We are wired in such a way that we need to be seen, heard, and to belong. I didn’t grow up with that, but it was something that I needed.

The Self-Sufficiency of God

In His self-sufficiency, we can find rest in Him and be assured that His blessings and provisions will never run out.

Fulfillment in the Midst of Desperation

As you know, if you have ridden the roller coaster of infertility, it can be heart-wrenching. One minute you are confident and the next minute you are questioning everything.

The Highest Price

As you’ve read this piece, how many more have given up? This month? This year? They were military veterans, sons, daughters, friends, and co-workers. They were businessmen, athletes, firefighters, and dentists.

Taking Crackers From Dad’s Plate

The anxiety was too much sometimes. I mean, even as God was giving us wonderful accommodations for our travels beyond what we could find on our own, I worried.
