Happy Birthday, Luke

November 22, 2015

Today our oldest son, Luke, turns 30 years old. Happy Birthday! Dear Luke: I remember the first time I heard you sing — of course, we had sung kids’ songs together many times, but you were really singing . . . In was the summer of 1998 on family vacation, and you were in the …

No Better Legacy

February 18, 2015

There is no way, humanly speaking, I would be preaching today if my mom had not instilled in me a love for God’s Word. From my earliest memories, she gathered her own kids with the neighborhood kids, and through flannel graph and passionate storytelling deposited in our little souls a love for God’s Word.

Christmas in the Word

December 24, 2014

If you’re like most believers, you want to connect with your family on Christmas Eve and Christmas day to have fun, play games, share a meal together. But if you leave that time and haven’t connected meaningfully about your faith in the Lord, it just seems kind of hollow in the end. I’d encourage you …

Fast 5 for Thanksgiving

November 25, 2014

An early Thanksgiving post on the blog today. I want to share some things I’ve learned not only about being thankful, but how you can help, encourage, and bless your people—and your family—this holiday week. Happy Thanksgiving! 🙂

Short Post—Incredible Person!

March 19, 2014

Proverbs 3:27: “Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.” Ok, I won’t!

When Men #ActLikeMen

November 21, 2013

Everywhere you look, men are in trouble—falling to superficiality, entertainment lifestyles, sensuality, secularism, lives lived apart from God, reaping for themselves and their families the harvest of what they have sown. Someone needs to throw men a life line. Men are are sinking, and only Jesus Christ can save them. Christ Himself must invade the …

Prioritize the Word of Truth

March 08, 2013

I love this: “accurately handling the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). When I was a kid, I memorized this verse in the King James Version as “rightly dividing the word of truth.” Actually, in the original Greek there’s just one word. It’s a compound word that means cut it straight. Don’t you love that …

Forgiveness: The Only Way Forward for a Family

February 14, 2013

My heart goes out to the family that is in a downward spiral. You know what I mean. Whether they live in the same house or come from the same parents or worship at the same church, ‘families’ can fall into bad patterns that become very hard to break. Where every step forward is quickly …

Five Things My Mom Taught Me

February 08, 2013

Happy Friday…I’ve been thinking about my mom a lot this week. I think that’s partly because I spoke at Moody Founders Week—she always used to loved to come and hear me there. We also just passed her third birthday in heaven, which was January 31—I’m sure she had an awesome day.

Filled with Hope: When I Feel Afraid

December 11, 2012

Read It Luke 1:30-33 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God.

Filled with Joy: When I Feel Forgotten

November 30, 2012

Read It Luke 1:11-15 And there appeared to him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. And Zechariah was troubled when he saw him, and fear fell upon him. But the angel said to him, “Do not be afraid, Zechariah, for your prayer has been heard

Relationship with the Learner

November 07, 2012

Paul discussed the connection between truth and family relationships in 2 Timothy 3:14–16. First, there must be a relationship with the learner. Here’s verse 14: “You, however, continue in the things you have learned and become convinced of, knowing from whom you have learned them.” Take a moment and read that verse again.

Never Too Old to Honor Your Parents

August 24, 2011

  If we take the Bible seriously (you do, right?), then we know that finding a way to honor our parents, no matter who they have been, no matter what they have done, is a very significant action. I’m serious.

We Only Get So Many Words

July 19, 2011

Summer is prime time to bring our focus back to our families and strengthen them in the truth. If building your family on the truth were easy, everybody would be doing it—but many aren’t. Diligence and persistence are absolutely necessary. In the book of 2 Timothy, the apostle Paul was writing to a young pastor …

A Fresh View of God at Work

June 23, 2011

In Psalm 46:10, the Lord exhorts us to “Be still, and know that I am God.” It’s counsel I need to heed more frequently, and you probably do too. So whatever else you are doing right now, STOP. Cease striving. Take a few minutes for this account of God’s unconditional pursuit of one young man. …

How a Husband Can Change His Wife

March 22, 2011

After last week’s blog on how a wife can change her husband I got requests for equal time. So here’s the other part of the picture. This will preach—but you’d better live it first! “Likewise, you husbands, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife as to the weaker vessel and, as being …

How a Wife Can Change Her Husband

March 17, 2011

Now there’s a book title that women would buy! And it’s actually a plan a lot of women try—without much success. Here’s the deal: Changed women help God change husbands. 1 Peter 3:1-6 includes four traits of a godly, changed woman and how they are powerful instruments for change in her husband’s life.

How A Twitter Changed Me

February 07, 2011

It was a shrapnel of Twitter lodged in my soul.  Piercing deeply, I hardly knew it was there, until at 4:30 a.m. in post-Super Bowl euphoria, I awoke with a start and felt the wound in my conscience. After 20 minutes of wrestling to remove it, I knew I was altered by a word that …
