My family and I are unplugging Saturday. From Friday night until Saturday night we are turning in cell phones and ipods, turning off facebook, tv and twitter. My children thought I had gone stark raving made when I broached the subject last night. How will we keep in touch with friends? What will we do, […] Read more »

As parents, it is our job to meet the needs of our kids. By nature we are experts at making sure our kids have the food, clothes, and shelter they need. Every August, we take them to the store for a new Jansport backpack, Trapper-Keeper, pencil box and Bic #2 mechanical pencils. (I don’t […] Read more »

I believe that the most important thing about a person is their concept of God. That is true for me. It’s true for you. You know who else it’s true for? Our kids. The world will tell us that the most important thing about our kids is how well-rounded they are, or maybe what kind […] Read more »

It’s a winter wonderland here in Alabama this morning. In this age of “global warming”, we’ve had more snow days this year than I can remember in the past 10 years or so.

How literal should we take scripture? Wow, that’s a loaded question. You will find a lot of discussion out there on that topic. I am not about to try to answer that question here, sorry.  I do want to think about that in light of our foundational passage of Scripture for Life Along The […] Read more »

“One of the most sobering truths about parenting is that you are teaching your children something, whether you are being intentional or not. Sure, you may not teach your children everything they need to know about Calculus or Biology. But your children are learning things from you as a parent that […] Read more »

The other day, my 3 yr old son was riding in the car with my wife and his grandmother. His grandmother was praying out loud about a few things. From the backseat he asked, “Why you say that?” She told him she had a few things on her heart. Then, she asked him if he […] Read more »

Family. We’ve all got it, in some form or fashion. The TV sitcoms are endless…Family Ties, All in the Family, Family Matters, Full House, Home Improvement, The Cosby Show, etc. Sometimes you brag about your family and other times, you want to change your name and move to Kansas (No offense Kansas, just seems far away).
