Never Give Up

My boys and I were watching the game. It didn’t take long for our heads to be hanging low. Never before had we seen our beloved Seahawks play so poorly. Quarter by quarter, interception by interception, our doubt was growing. My son Hayden even said, “It’s going take a miracle.” I had gotten to the point where I Read more...

Jealous Love

My oldest son, Bradley, broke his wrist last week playing soccer. For the past several days we’ve been helping him bathe, get dressed, and even style his hair – though we had to give that one up since apparently we don’t “do it right”. Since it’s his right wrist and he is right-handed, we’ve also Read more...

Running Wild With King Solomon

Did you have the chance to watch Monday night’s episode of “Running Wild with Bear Grylls”.  Bear is a survivalist/adventurer and on the show he takes a celebrity on a challenging two day quest through the wild outdoors.

Monday night’s show featured NFL superstar Deion Sanders, being tested physically and mentally in the Utah desert. During a campfire chat, Bear got personal with Deion, asking how he felt after winning the Super Bowl. His answer was surprising. Read more...

Let God Take the Lead

Do you know what’s really hard to do? Love someone who doesn’t want to be loved, at least at this moment in time.

Making a difference with pocket change

Thank you! You did something special yesterday. You helped to provide the ’44-Cent Cure’ and care to nearly one-hundred-thousand 3rd world kids suffering from parasites. Yesterday, the SPIRIT 105.3 family rallied together to not only cure kids of the life threatening intestinal worms, but to also bring them the gift of clean water, sanitation facilities and health education through the efforts of World Concern.

Tangled Lights

Are you preparing to hang Christmas lights at your home? If you’re like me, you probably wait and hang your lights the day after Thanksgiving. That’s when you’ll find me out on the roof. But first, this weekend, I have to pull the lights out of the boxes in the garage, get them untangled and replace any burnt out bulbs. Read more...

Letting the Light In

When my family moved into our home in 2004, one of the features we loved, was the beautiful, lush, Douglas Fir, standing guard over the house. Read more...

Here's What Really Happened...

The other night when I got home from work, my youngest son, Hayden, met me in the garage with his hands in the air. “Hey, hi Dad,” he said. “Yeah, if you’re wondering why I have band-aids on my hands, I fell playing kickball at recess today.” Then he turned and went back in the house...returning 30 seconds later with what REALLY happened.
