Becoming a 5 star Christian

For most of you, the month of February is associated with Valentines Day. But if you’re a college football junkie like me, you associate February with national signing day and hope and pray that your favorite team finishes in the top 10 in recruiting. Yes, I’m fully aware that I’m a nerd but I thoroughly…

Holiday Thoughts

If you’re like me, you’ve consumed more calories over the last week than you have in the last several weeks combined. You’ve eaten enough turkey to last you until Christmas and you’ve had your fill of pumpkin pie. Wait, who am I kidding? One can never get tired of pie! In all seriousness, I truly…

Anniversary Thoughts

This past Thursday, Renea and I celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. I’m not going to waste your time with all the mushy stuff, but I can honestly say that I’m more in love with my wife now than I was on my wedding day. For those who know me totally understand that I outkicked my…

Let God Be God

We’ve all been there. At some point in our Christian lives we’ve sincerely craved to grow in the Lord and have our faith strengthened. Hopefully you continue to have that desire and are doing just that…growing stronger in your walk with Christ. If you’re continuing to grow in your faith, I commend you. Not because…

The Table of Grace

Last summer our oldest son learned the hard way why football is played with pads and unfortunately broke his arm trying to tackle his older cousin. This summer Andrew took a tumble on the stairs and ended up breaking his leg. We either have the worst luck ever or we’re entirely too clumsy in our…
