Like A Good Neighbor

Like a Good Neighbor….. I simply love fall! I appreciate the cooler weather, the fact that patio dining is now an option at a restaurant, and my air conditioning does not have to run 24/7. I love that more of my neighbors are outside and it seems to be a time for more fellowship opportunities....

Everybody Needs a Leroy!

Recently I traveled to Ecuador for a mission trip. There were twenty-one youth and adults on the team, and each one was instrumental in making an impact for the Kingdom.  During the trip, my main responsibility was to lead training sessions for pastors and leaders in the area. I had an interpreter, but also needed...

In fact, the salesperson told me that the first forty hours of wear could be outright painful. Quite the sales pitch. I handed them a hundred and thirty bucks and walked...

Permission to Fail

Failure is a part of life. We all do it from time to time and important lessons can be learned from failing. I get it! I don’t like to experience failure as much as the next person, but I can honestly say that through failure I have learned some incredible life lessons and my faith...

Wonder Woman to the Rescue!

A new Wonder Woman movie is releasing in June, and my house is ready to take in some super-hero action.  Our family enjoys super-hero stories from movies, television, and comic books.  I think we can all agree that these stories are entertaining, and the heroes depicted, though flawed at times, have an air of nobility...

In Shame We Trust

Sitting in the hallway, watching the lines of students evacuate the building, I felt miserable. I knew I had made a terrible mistake, and that was now playing out in the wasting of all hundreds of people’s time. Just when I thought I couldn’t get any lower, a professor walking by me with the most...

People- The Heart & Soul of Ministry

Many years ago, I heard a pastor say, “If it were not for the people, I would love the ministry.” After my initial shock, I responded, “People are our ministry.” Maybe we should remember what Jesus said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son, that...
