Anticipation!

Ahhh!  The holidays are just around the corner!  Maybe you are anticipating Thanksgiving and Christmas like I am! What else are you anticipating?  A birthday?  Starting a new job?  How about God to use you to do great things? I remember 7 years ago when I started asking God to use me…yep, use me.  It was just that…

If churches shut down

People across the United States are finding out what it means for their life when the government shuts down.  From this, a new hashtag on Twitter has started: #IfIShutDown.  Dentists are tweeting empty dentist chairs, newspaper editors blank sheets of paper, and Moms and Dads messy kitchens and unsupervised children. But what…

The Theory of Desirable Difficulty

There are a handful of authors that I have been so consistently impressed by that I feel compelled to read whatever they produce.  In fiction, there’s C.J. Sansom.  In terms of business or leadership, there’s Jim Collins. And in a genre of writing hard to describe is Malcolm Gladwell.  His typical approach is to popularize…

Why I love my Pastor; my last Tweet

If someone asked you if you loved your Pastor…what would you say? Do you ever think about that? Do you ever pray for the man who is serving in one of the loneliest jobs in the church today? Think about how he has to spend time studying truth to teach you the Truth? How about the countless times he is available for those who need prayer?…

Good gone bad

“Mom, what are those blue spots on the loaf of bread?” my daughter questioned as I was reaching for my morning coffee. Uh oh. I walked over to the counter, plucked up the half loaf with the plastic bag clearly displaying the fuzzy spots of my neglect, and tossed it into the garbage. Summertime for me means fewer hours in the kitchen…
