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.

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...

When is it easiest to be thankful?

When is it easiest to be thankful? Maybe on Thanksgiving, when the calendar tells us to give thanks, or when something really dramatic and great happens, or when something really dramatic and bad doesn't happen. But what about the things we just expect? Read more...

What Defines You?

My daughter Camille is really into theatre at school. Just this week they had auditions for two different shows that the school is putting on next school year. She was walking around our house practicing a Southern accent, a proper British accent, and a Cockney accent. She prepared and researched but when the audition came she says she felt like Read more...

What's so good about Good Friday?

My daughter, Camille, frequently makes me proud. She did it again a few weeks ago when she said she wanted to make some kind of sacrifice for Lent. Giving things up for Lent has not been a tradition in our house, so she was starting something new. My wife and I figured if our high school freshman was going to be willing to make a sacrifice, we should too. And I’m glad we did. I’ve discovered that Read more...

The Rescue Has Begun...

Remember the miners who were trapped in Chile for nearly 70 days a few years ago? Our pastor was talking about how for the first 17 days they did not know whether anyone even knew where they were. They were hopeless, they had run out of food and were simply waiting to die. Read more...

I Can’t Stop Time

I can’t figure out how I feel about my kids growing up. Our 14-year old Camille is about to become our 15-year old, and she’s already talking about learning to drive. She’s talking about more than I am! Where’s the little pumpkin who used to call her forehead her “headbrow?” Read more...

"What have you done for me lately?"

"What have you done for me lately?" I think that mentality is engrained in who we are as Americans. We’ve been called a meritocracy… a society where you are judged by what you achieve. Read more...

A Different Perspective on Adoption

I love it when something I’ve seen over and over again hits me as though I’ve never seen it before. I’ve heard people talk about how we are “adopted sons and daughters” of God and the Bible calls us “heirs of God.” I’ve even thought of how our adoption of our son Meyer was a picture of God’s adoption of us. But recently, I found the comparison to be remarkable in ways I didn’t expect. Read more...

You've Won!

Imagine this: You get called into your boss’s office. You sit down and he says “Now this is nothing personal…” Has that phrase ever been followed by good news? “Now it’s nothing personal, but we want to promote you to Senior Vice President and double your salary!” I don’t think so. Read more...
  • Verse of the Day - 11-27-2014

    Hebrews 12:28-29 “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.” Read More
