When a Parent is no Parent

Parents are not all that they seem. While growing up you remember being afraid of them when you’re a brat and of getting spanked if caught. Perhaps you even hated them at times, or just simply wondered why they were such grumps and killjoys. But then as you grew up, you realized how much they […]

Fair-weather Christians

Full disclosure: I don't often watch college sports. The only NCAA basketball I watched during March Madness 2019 was the end of the Virginia-Auburn game, and that was because my dad rushed in the room in the middle of my workout to tell me what a nail-biter it was.

Remember the Cliffs

My dad and I are travel junkies. If you mention the possibility of taking a trip to a foreign country, he and I jump into action looking at plane ticket prices and reading Travelocity ads about the top 10 things to do in that country. Dad has a huge framed map in his office entitled... Continue Reading →

Crazy, Inseparable Love

Nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ. Think about that! That's crazy. I've been reading through Romans in my devotional time and man. I've never really pondered that thought.
