  • The time leading up to Christmas seems kind of like a crazy frenzy of things we’ve got to do, expectations to meet (those of ours and our own), and generally a lot of rushing around. It hasn’t always been this way though. Historically, Christians have called this time of year Advent, which is a time of anticipation; a time of waiting. During Advent, we look back, anticipating the arrival of Jesus as a baby in a manger. We also look forward to His return in glory as a reigning king.

  • 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.

  • 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
