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

Racism

Racism: Religion and Science Agree, It’s Wrong

  • by

This is a bit of an armchair article so you are welcome to take it with a grain of salt, or a mountain. I can not in good conscience write for a site that believes 100% in God and all he is then ignore the injustice that has occurred in Charlottesville. I’ll approach this from a Biblical point of view and from a scientific one. I think that addressing both… Read More »Racism: Religion and Science Agree, It’s Wrong

Leave a Church

It’s OK to Leave a Church…Sometimes

  • by

This is a bit on the nose for my family and I at the moment since we are going through this decision to leave the church we have attended faithfully for 15 months. It is not something that we have taken lightly or out of anger (James 1:19-20). It is something that has lingered in our minds for months and has been discussed over and over with by my wife… Read More »It’s OK to Leave a Church…Sometimes

Walking the Walk

Walking the Walk – Living Like Christ – Faithful Father Series

This is post 3 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” You talk the talk but are you walking the walk? It is an age old idiom and as we continue the Faithful Father series we need to move beyond simply talking about God and the work Jesus did to acting upon those words. Our children learn so much from us at home because they spend so much time with… Read More »Walking the Walk – Living Like Christ – Faithful Father Series

Faithful Father

Faithful Father Series: Introduction

This is post 1 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” There are no more terrifying roles in a man’s life than those of husband and father. I mean let’s be honest, we can really make life difficult for the ones closest to us if we do not guard ourselves against the enemy. In fact, we can make their life suck by not being a faithful father and devoted husband.… Read More »Faithful Father Series: Introduction

I Wish You Were Dead; Powerful Words From a Child

“I Wish You Were Dead.” – Ella It is one of those things you never expect your children to say. In fact, it is something they should never say at all. The wishing of the death of someone can be a tragic statement simply because it is an explicit evacuation of love. Imagine for a moment if that is how God felt towards us? The difference between our ability to… Read More »I Wish You Were Dead; Powerful Words From a Child
