Questions for Daddy: Sharing the Gospel With Your Children

The conversation started with frustration as MJ, my three-year old, complained, “Why can’t Mommy put me to bed?” “Because buddy, she’s downstairs resting.” “But I don’t want you to put me down Daddy!”  His 3-year-old temper was on the verge of a meltdown. My reply was probably a little harsh. “Well buddy, there are some little boys that don’t have a daddy, so we need to be thankful that we can spend some time together before we go to sleep.” […]

Russell Wilson: An Unlikely Champion

Although Russell Wilson transferred to Wisconsin for his senior season, he spent three years quarterbacking the NC State Wolfpack, my alma mater.  Since his days with the Wolfpack, I’ve been a huge fan. As he has excelled in his professional career, it has been an uplifting experience to watch him grow, not only as a player, but as a person as well. I can’t think of a better example of, as the book of Matthew says, salt and light. His […]

When a Lion Breathes on Your Neck

As we slowly walked toward the den of lions their deep roar rattled within my bones, sending a chill throughout my entire body. How could we possibly throw this man in with those ferocious beasts? I knew he felt the chill and heard the roar as well. Even so, I heard him utter under his breath: “O God of my fathers; praise be your name forever and ever. Wisdom and power are yours and you give it to the wise […]

Defining Trust

Yesterday, I was blown away to find out that a fellow blogger quoted my writing on her site.  Please understand that it wasn’t the fact of using my words, although I was honored and so glad they spoke to her, it was the quote she used that got my attention.  (PS – Robin writes about a Courageous Heart here, go check it out!)  She quoted words about my grandfather’s suicide. “Life will be full of moments that can define you, […]

Why is Trust Important?

Welcome to Seeking Saturday:  2014 Edition 1 If TRUST is my word for 2014, I have to ask myself this question. Why is trust important? __________________________________________________________________________ This wind is howling outside.  It’s simply the cold front rolling in, but I can’t stop thinking about God.  He is at work and His work is mighty.  Like the wind, he is invisible, but you can hear Him and see His movements.  As C. S. Lewis said, “I believe in God as I […]
