3 Keys for Stopping Shame In Its Tracks

Several months ago I had an important meeting on my schedule and I spent several days preparing for it. I was a little nervous, but I was also excited. I tend to over-prepare, but unfortunately for this meeting, I way over-prepared. I stayed up past 2 AM the night before and woke up the next morning feeling terrible. I thought I would be fine, but...

Finding Hope in a Hospital Room

Last weekend, Courtney and I checked into the hospital dealing with preterm labor at 24 weeks. Things improved, and she’s now at home and stable, but before I checked out of the hospital I promised myself I would write down some of my thoughts.

The Difficult Truth About Your Spiritual Health

I believe the #1 greatest threat facing the Church right now is a lack of love — real love that...

20 Life Lessons I Learned From My Two Year Old

When I became a dad a little over two years ago I knew I had a lot to learn about becoming a parent. What I didn’t expect is just how much my son would teach me about life in general. I’m sure I have many more lessons to learn in the years ahead, but in the mean time I thought I would share this selection of 20: 1. Saturday mornings...

5 Signs You’re Reading The Bible Wrong

Growing up my nightly bedtime routine consisted of pulling down my black leather King James Bible and turning to Psalm 23 (I had heard that Psalm recited at several funerals, so I knew it had to be important). I eventually memorized it, but the truth of it never seeped into my heart. I would pull out my Bible every night and then somehow manage to...
