Mother’s Day Weekend

Hello Friends, PSA:  This Sunday is Mother’s Day. Like any holiday, Mother’s Day may evoke various emotions (good, bad and/or ugly). This is especially true when it involves family, specifically Moms. Not everyone has a great family. Some do, of course. But not everyone. Some may recall the loss of their own Mom. That’s the…

You Are CHOSEN

HELLO FRIENDS,   Are you a meticulous calendar organizer? How about sticky notes? Do you notoriously leave them around everywhere like me?  I wish I could say I don’t rely on both calendars & sticky notes nearly as much as I do but I just can’t! Now It’s not because I’m overly organized or something…

A REFLECTION FROM JOHN 19:25-27

Here is my reflection on John 19:25-27 I cannot begin to imagine the pain in her heart.  Watching as her son, beaten and bloody, gasps for air while hanging from that cross.  Every breath He takes is calculated based on the strength it would take on each inhale, and the pain He would feel on…

Being a 26-year-old serving at my…

Listen With Intent

Hello Friends,   I recently attended a workshop here at the church put on by our very own Kristin Chaney and the lovely Katelyn Watson called “How To Hear”. While I learned so many things about myself, listening, question-asking, relationships, and society, there was one thing that really stuck out to me and may be…

What It Means To KNOW God

HELLO FRIENDS, “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.” Psalms 46:1 NIV   How are you with tight spaces?  Me? Thanks for asking.  I hate them.  I’m sure Freud would say it stems from the womb.  Maybe it’s the residual trauma from sleep overs at friends houses where they’d play “Trap…

A Battle For “Status”

Hello Friends. Denise (my wife) and I are in the thick of a battle of sorts. I want to win, and therefore, I need her to lose. We are in a battle for “status.” Let me explain… I fly a lot. I’m in airplanes quite often. Perhaps it’s for denominational meetings, speaking engagements, vacation, or…

Focus your eyes and ears on God’s Word

HELLO FRIENDS   I hope I can encourage you today.   When I was a boy, just tall enough to help my dad in the garage, or tag along while he was working, he taught me a valuable habit.  When he had an instruction or a correction to give, he taught me to look him in the eye…
