Growing in Faith

Back to school means back to basics

Several members of my immediate family serve the public school system in our area.  My wife is a school nurse; my mother-in-law was a school nurse until she retired. I have two daughter-in-laws who are teachers and a son who will soon graduate with a degree in elementary education.  I’ve learned that family members who share…

Joy in your journey home

Avery wrote a Target Haiku. For some reason when he and his mommy go to Target he thinks of me, his Grammy. I don’t know where he got that but I am loving that he does. The miles between us create a distance that our hearts bridge. It’s hard for this little one to be away from his Grammy, just like it is for me. He gets such joy from…

42 life lessons

Today is my forty-second birthday. Here are 42 things I’ve learned and observed in the last 42 years. Some are more serious than others.   1. Cooking bacon without a shirt on is a bad idea. 2. You must forgive everyone. EVERYONE. 3. You will make some stupid decisions in life. Learn from them. 4. You will meet both wonderful and…

Afraid of Failure or Afraid of Success

What idea have you been thinking about for a while now that you would be willing to act on if you were absolutely sure that it would succeed? This in effect, was the question that Bill Hybels asked all in attendance at the Leadership Summi…t in 2011. I was in attendance that day and I will never forget how God used that moment in my life.

Afraid of growing old

When I meet with some of the precious people who support Life 101.9 as Day Partners,  I usually ask them what prayer needs they have.  Two days ago, a long time friend of the radio station surprised me by asking me to give him something that I could pray for. This doesn’t often happen so I thought I’d seize this golden…

Church camp mathematics

I think I was about five when I had my first church camp encounter. My mom worked in the kitchen as was part of the food crew, my dad was a counselor and he ran the canteen. The canteen was the hot spot for making new relationships. It was an oasis of the popular and the dreamy. A snack king’s wish, yes, but the place to wait for what the…

Moral expectations: yours, mine & ours

I recently returned home from my vacation to Colorado, the state in which I was born and raised. On my return home something that dawned on me is just how bad my sense of direction really is. You see, in Colorado it is very easy to tell what direction you are going based on the location of the mountains. If I am in Colorado Springs and I see…

Grace to respond when opportunity knocks

Jesus did his first miracle at a wedding in Cana of Galilee.  I’m thankful that he did another wedding miracle in my heart recently and I’d like to share it with you. But before I do,  I have a question. Let me ask you.  Have you ever made the mistake of seeing a divine appointment through your human set of eyes instead…

The secret to life

Life is wearing and makes us weary. Each part of it with work, home, family, church…you name it. It wears us out. I think I have found the secret. Why do we tend to wear the burdens that are supposed to be God’s, those that Scripture refers to as “light and easy”? The secret is that we want to accomplish life’s…

Surrender to the creative process

There are days when God gives me so much to chew on. “Dear God, help me process it all. Reveal yourself in all that you have shown me today.” The way I am wired, it will take a few days to write it out. It’s a process. It’s God’s process in the way He teaches me. A disciplining by my Master. It feels like an…
