A king, a toilet, and a cave

One of the things we allow our girls to do as we read through the Bible, is to pull out the crayons and paper and draw something that they heard. This allows them to keep their hands busy, while soaking in the reading. One of my favorite drawings came from our Kindergartener. (And I really wish I had kept it). It was a guy, wearing a crown,…


We Love Our Volunteers

Thanks to those volunteers who have manned phones to keep us on track this week!  Share continues to be a highlight for so many who get to put on the headsets, take down gifts and pledges and here story after story of changed lives. If you’ve thought about it but never volunteered for a share event, there’s always next…


Blest be family ties that bind

I took my daughter out for her birthday this week.  It’s becoming one of my “most looked forward to” rituals. She lives with her husband in Cedar Falls so when I’m in town the week of her birthday, we pick an exotic destination and we go.  We celebrate her birthday, and we catch up.  Looking forward…


Risk vs. caution

I have two daughters, and while they’re similar in a lot of ways, they’re also very different. This is really evident in how they approach physical activity. My older daughter, Bekah, tends to be pretty cautious. When she got her first bike recently and it didn’t have training wheels, she barely wanted to be on…


School lunches boring already?

Are your kiddos complaining already about the boring, cold lunches that they have to take to school?   Do you take your kids shopping to get them pumped up and let them choose items to put into their lunch only to grab the same ol’ things?  Me too!  It’s so much easier to throw a PB&J sandwich in with an apple and…


Dinner ideas that won’t heat up the kitchen

In the heat of summer the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven and heat up the kitchen.  Yuck!  But you also have a home and family to feed so what are some tasty ideas for lunch or dinner that won’t heat up the house? Here are a few of my favorites: Grilled Chicken Wraps… Grilled (or stir fried) chicken breast slices marinated


Exposure therapy

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.         Philippians 4:6 Therapists at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN have developed an innovative approach to helping children overcome anxiety.  It’s called Exposure Therapy. Exposure…

Living with a glass half full

I never met McKale Morgan but after 20 minutes with his parents Mike and Dawn Morgan, I felt like I had known him. McKale died of a seizure on March 20th and the Morgans who have sponsored that day in honor of McKale’s passing this spring were quick to share about his full life despite his many handicaps. McKale was an Eagle Scout.  …


Field of Dreams a Hit with My Team

What a fun week our media advancement team had as we met at Life 101.9 this year.  As is our tradition, we spend part of our time taking in the “culture” of the market where we meet and so it was decided that I should treat my colleagues to a visit to the Field of Dreams in Dyersville. If you haven’t heard, the field…
