How Do You Know If You Matter To You?

There is a scripture that speaks to the idea that we are to love one another in the same manner and degree that we love ourselves. The question that comes to mind for me is how do we know that we love ourselves? When we say that we love ourselves, some might say that this […]

Is Faith Really Meant To Be Trendy?

The other day I was reading an article featuring an interview of Mayim Bialik. She’s an actress that many may remember from the ’90’s show Blossom, she did as a teen. Other people may know her for her latest role in the long-running sitcom The Big Bang Theory. In the article, she recounts her experiences […]

Reasons You Should Not Run On Empty

Have you ever driven your car somewhere on empty? I know I have. It’s not something that I particularly relish doing at any time, but it has happened. I’m the kind of driver that tends to lean towards the side of keeping the tank full as much as possible. My wife, when we met was […]

When You Think No One Else Is Watching

Throughout this summer, I’ve had the privilege of traipsing my two younger children back and forth to their summer camp. Along the way, we see lots of things on the drive. Usually, I’m focused on the road or thinking of dozens of things that I either need or want to do when I’ve completed the […]

When Being the Least is Enough to Win in Life

I don’t think there is anyone that I know that wakes up in the morning, or whenever it is that they wake up, and they say to themselves that they desire to be a failure. Failure never feels good, never puts you in a good mood, nor puts you in good company. As the old […]

A Day to Truly Be Social With Purpose

This past weekend I had the honor and privilege of attending a local Sickle Cell Association Family Fun Day Event. It’s perhaps something that I’ve not been able to do in quite a significant amount of time due to many mitigating circumstances.  It is in all sincerity something that I’m passionate about. I have often […]

When You Have A Moment Like Job

Have you ever just had one of “those days”? Maybe it was over the course of a few days or even some weeks. It could even have been months or longer. You know that Job type experience where everything seems to fall apart? It could be that you’ve lost a series of family or close friends, […]

Take Care of What You Value

Life is never dull when you start having children. I’ve learned that over the time that I’ve had mine in greater degree than when I simply interacted with those that belonged to other parents. One thing you begin to realize about children is that they need to be taught to value things and that things […]

When You Minister Out of a Pure Heart

One of the things that has been intently on my heart lately is living a life of a healed person. In as much as the saying is true that hurt people hurt people, it is also true that healed people heal people. If we look at the life of Jesus we plainly see that in […]
