The Love Language Game

"Dear GOD, I bet it is very hard for You to love all of everybody in the whole world.  There are only 4 people in our family and I can never do it.  -Nan" I read this on Children’s Letters to God and laughed out loud....

Hope for the Future Starts Today!

...We haven’t been “killing God” over the past six decades as much as we’ve been declaring Him irrelevant.  We’ve been reinventing the God of Abraham and Isaac, Peter and Paul, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Martin Luther King, and most of us have slept through it.  It’s time to wake up and begin fighting for our children’s future by fighting for their view of God.  It starts in our home....

My daughter spilled the beans about Santa.  She was in 2nd grade and a group of girls were huddled on the playground talking (rapidly) about their Christmas wish lists.  One friend giggled her excitement about Santa’s visit on Christmas Eve.  My daughter felt she needed to set her straight...

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, our President, Congressmen, CEO’s, teachers and preachers were children.  During the first 13 years of their lives the foundation upon which every decision they make today was laid.  Their moral compass was established and their view of the world and of God was formed....

The Power of an Imperfect Dad

My dad is one of my greatest heroes.  Not because he was perfect, he wasn’t.  Not because he was successful, though he was.  Not because he taught me to fly fish, though he did.  No, his hero status was born in his imperfection and grew as...
