“Whatever It Takes” Kind of Commitment

One of the kids at Quinn’s Football practice 'lost his lunch' only 20 minutes in to their 2 1/2 hour practice. He cleaned himself up, laughed out loud and ran back out onto the field. Wow. I’m not sure that I could have done that at 10 years old, or at 37! 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...

Never Too Far Gone

We got a call from Carmella. She wanted to hear the thought from Mr. Rogers that was shared just a moment ago. In a trembling voice she shared that things were not going well and it felt hopeless between her and her husband. 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...

Jumping in!

Sochi . . . They make it look so easy. I find myself watching the bobsledding thinking to myself. . .a few seconds of really hard running, then, you close your eyes for the rest of the event. I can do that. The ice skaters doing their “twizzles” look like so much fun. It looks like something I could do. Have you ever thought you could do something, then, quickly realized you were in over your head? Read more...

"Because a lifetime is irrelevant"

Ashley had been listening to SPIRIT 105.3 for only a few weeks when she found out she and her husband were going to have a baby! He was born a beautiful healthy boy! At 10 weeks old he died at naptime. Ashley said that although it was a tragic time—she wouldn’t have traded that time together with him. 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...

It's His Birthday

When I came home he looked ragged from the day. Caring for our two girls, Maggie and Della, can give you both life and suck it out of you all at once. When we met, he had just graduated from law school. He wore a bow tie on our first date. For most of our marriage... 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...

    The other night, I was spending a quiet evening relaxing alone at home, when all of sudden I heard a loud clanking noise downstairs. My first thought was “What in the world did my cats knock over that would make such a racket?!” Then I realized that the kitties were upstairs with me. They had wide eyes and cautiously crept into the hallway to peer through the banister railings to investigate what was making such a clatter.
