Blaming the Bride

  • by
Last week was an interesting and exciting time for my wife and I. For more than a year we have floated here and there visiting churches or not going at all. We were aloof with the idea of settling down because we are human and struggled with knowing some of the inner workings of the people at the churches we had been to for extended periods. Some things we probably… Read More »Blaming the Bride

Launching A Podcast

  • by
I was listening to a sermon that Tyler Drewitz from Ridgline Church in Salt Lake City, Utah was giving that sparked this idea. So I have to thank him for his message that day. Tyler I know from his time at Harvest Bible Chapel in Hickory, NC. He had served at the church there for a year before being called to SLC to help plant a church. I still listen… Read More »Launching A Podcast

Steadfast Provider

Steadfast Provider – Rock in the Storm – Faithful Father Series

This is post 8 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” As a father we provide for our children in many ways. It is east to think, ‘Well they have a roof over their head, food in their belly, and clothes on their bodies. I’m doing alright.’ and to a certain extent that is true but the logic is flawed. We provide more than tangible things for our children and… Read More »Steadfast Provider – Rock in the Storm – Faithful Father Series

A Month (or More) in Prayer Journaling

I’ve posted about this on my personal Facebook as well as the Just Hold Fast page and it was something that had been on my mind and heart. I don’t pray enough, or didn’t. I don’t know the barometer of what is ‘enough’ because the Bible tells us to never cease praying (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). What I do know is it lingered there, in the back of my mind and… Read More »A Month (or More) in Prayer Journaling
Compassion = Benevolent

Compassionate Friendship – Benevolent Bonding – Faithful Father Series

This is post 7 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” Bonding with our children is so important that the Bible made sure we understood the need to provide benevolent bonding for our children. Proverbs 22:6 tells us what that bonding can lead to. I consider my home an institution and I think that men should look at their own home that way as well. Consider the children you are… Read More »Compassionate Friendship – Benevolent Bonding – Faithful Father Series
2018 Reflection and Plans

New Year 2018 – Reflection and Goals

Just as I have for several years now I look back on 2017 and reflect then turn to 2018 with hope, with dreams and goals for my relationship with God, my family and with myself. This is inspired directly from the Bible since we are often hung up on the old in a detrimental way and I was determined to change that. Reflection of 2017 What I found was that… Read More »New Year 2018 – Reflection and Goals
God's Authority

Respected Authority – Discipline and Honor – Faithful Father Series

This is post 6 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” When we speak of authority as Christians we must consider the differing levels of authority in the home. These are easy to delineate but I can guarantee that I, like others struggle with them. The first and absolute authority is God. If you are a Christian and you believe that you are the final authority in your home, you… Read More »Respected Authority – Discipline and Honor – Faithful Father Series
Leading and Prayer

Loving and Leading – A Compassionate Leader – Faithful Father Series

  • by
This is post 5 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” Leadership is a subjective skill because the base definition of it leaves it as an open-ended trait. Men can posses the ability to lead people in different ways. God has a way of raising up people to lead that others simply never expected. Every married man has a command from God to be leading his family spiritually. We must… Read More »Loving and Leading – A Compassionate Leader – Faithful Father Series
