Tired of keeping all those Christmas traditions?

I used to go all out for the holiday season decorating, cooking, and making homemade gifts. I’d send out cards with yearly letters and photos, make videos for the grandparents, and shop for unique and well thought out presents. By Christmas Eve I felt exhausted and crabby but I was determined to make Christmas feel like Christmas.…

‘Tis the season

The Christmas season has officially arrived.  People are busy with shopping and wrapping and cooking and parties.  In the midst of this busyness, let’s look at an important way parents can teach their children about the “Reason for this and Every Season” – modeling.  Modeling is possibly the most important thing parents can do…

Finding Joy

It was 11 years ago when a young woman living in east central China learned she was expecting a baby. She was a hard working wife, but financial resources were very low, and visiting a doctor was out of the question. While she was excited about the life she carried, her joy was tempered by the expectations of her husband and his family.…

The power of a Christmas tradition

I’d like to say it was my idea, but it wasn’t. My wife is the gifted and nostalgic one in the family. For years, at Christmas time, my family would affectionately refer to me as “the Grinch”. My wife, on the other hand, understood the power of a Christmas tradition and, over the years, we have adopted many meaningful traditions.…

The guy who ruined Christmas in November

I hang my head in shame as I write this, and I know this is an overused cliché, but if I can save one parent from making this painful mistake, then he or she won’t have to experience the horrors of sucking the joy out of their children (because I have yet to meet a parent who strives to do that). You see, that’s exactly what I did. I sucked the…

How do we keep young people in the church?

What would the church be like if more young people kept the faith during the teen years? Pastor Jon Nielson recently wrote an article entitled 3 Common Traits of Youth Who Don’t Leave the Church. Here’s an excerpt: “What do we do about our kids?” The group of parents sat together in my office, wiping their eyes. I’m a…

Voices from the past

A sad reality hit me the other night. As I was talking with my nephew about his deceased grandparents (and great-grandparents), it struck me that I’ve largely forgotten what their voices sounded like. I can hear them pronounce certain words and how they phrased things in my head, but that’s no way to convey that to my nephew. Before…
