Hope In The Midst Of The Holidays

I was originally thinking about writing about how grateful I am, heading into this holiday season, that my family and I have been so incredibly blessed in so many ways. We have been, and I am. But my friend’s situation got me thinking about how the sting of suffering, whether it’s physical, relational, or psychological, can be even more acute in a season when we have a cultural expectation of joy and happiness.

A Less Than Norman Rockwell Family

I was discussing the holiday with a coworker the other day, and we began joking that perhaps what many of our tables need is an extra seat for a licensed family therapist to mediate. “Yes,” he laughed, “they could wear a referee shirt! With a whistle!” 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...

No Reason To Hide

Our dog, Beau, is a beautiful Newfoundland… He’s really one of the family, except he doesn’t get to enjoy all the privileges of the rest of the family… like laying on the bed, for instance. Occasionally, Beau will get on the bed, even though he knows he’s not allowed. What’s really hilarious though, is when Read more...

The Pumpkin Parable

Every autumn I'm reminded of this parable when I see a pumpkin: "Being a human being is like being a pumpkin. God lifts you up, takes you in, and washes all the dirt off you. He opens you up, touches you deep inside and scoops out all the yucky stuff-- including the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc.Then He carves you a new smiling face and puts Read more...

The God of Wonders

It’s not an everyday occurrence for a partial solar eclipse to come our way, but one may be viewable Thursday afternoon. At about 1:30 pm Pacific time the moon will begin a seemingly slow pass between the sun and the Earth... Read more...

Happy Birthday To You!

Kids, homework, groceries, dry cleaner, soccer practice, pick up prescription for Mom, project due at work, dog to groomer, make dinner, bath time, fold laundry, schedule a mammogram. Huh? Schedule a mammogram? Oh that's right, my birthday is coming up! See every year around this time I'm reminded to truly take care of myself! Read more...

Where Your Focus Is or Isn't

Things looked a lot different for my husband and I a year ago. You see those curves on the edges of our mouths there?... Well, they started curving downward when we were together. I let myself focus on everything that was lacking in our life. After eating a meal with a friend... Read more...

God Says You're Worth It

Sometimes we are too effective in drilling things into our kids. My wife and I are very frugal, and we’ve really emphasized being wise with money with our kids. It’s worked a little with our son Meyer, and a LOT with our daughter Camille. Maybe it’s worked too well with her Read more...
