Can you slow down?

I’m in my late 40s, life expectancy is shy of 80 for males. Ask those in my life, I can feel the pressure to pack my life full of activity and maximize my time by doing all I can. In school, we’re encouraged to join as many clubs as possible to make the most of our educational experience. At work, it’s expected that we’ll be unreal productive…

Things you never thought you’d say… then you had kids

A graphic designer from Iowa has 4 boys under the age of 10, and just like most parents, he’s had to say things that simultaneously make him laugh… and cry. His method of coping is to design posters that go with the sayings, and I want to buy every single one of these and put them in my kids’ room. Here are some of the prints…

Those A-HA moments

My favorite moments with kids are those moments when they, seemingly… on their own, ‘get’ truth.

Tonight we had a great chance to talk through what it means to be content. We read through Matthew 6 as a family tonight, and spent a good…

Jesus, the elf, and a piece of chocolate?

Call me crazy. I’ve decided to combine all three this Christmas. I rolled this out last year as a trial and it went over so awesome with my kids that they asked if I was going to do the same this year. Yeah for new traditions! You might say, “But Jesus is the real reason for the season you don’t need anything else. Lock…

Where’s the Merry in Christmas?

Decked halls. Festive parties. Movies full of Christmas miracles. Hope and joy in every heart, right? For many, this season does bring great wonder, renewal and joy.  But just as many more are left wondering, Where IS the Merry in Christmas? Many families will face this Christmas with an empty chair at the family gathering, a family…
