Summertime, camp songs and eternal impressions

I love summertime. To be fair, I love every season we get in the beloved Ozarks, but I especially love this time of year. Maybe it’s in part from remembering the carefree feelings of my youth, but I love playing in the water (lake, ocean, creek, sprinkler, you name it), cooking outside, longer days, andContinue reading “Summertime, camp songs and eternal impressions”

The Power of a Godly Mother Series | The Power of Her Prayers (Part 3 of 3)

I’m a history nerd so it should be of no surprise that this final part of the series won’t start in 1961 with the birth of my mom, but rather 1836. That’s the year that George Müller began his orphan ministry in Bristol, England.  If you asked any preacher or evangelical reader (worth their salt)Continue reading “The Power of a Godly Mother Series | The Power of Her Prayers (Part 3 of 3)”

The Power of a Godly Mother Series | The Power of Her Quiet, Humble Life (Part 2 of 3)

There were over a thousand people at my mom’s funeral.  I know that’s cutting right into the topic at hand with little anecdotal pieces, but I need to start there to set a tone for where we’re going.  There won’t be a thousand people at my funeral. I don’t even know that many people andContinue reading “The Power of a Godly Mother Series | The Power of Her Quiet, Humble Life (Part 2 of 3)”

As a somewhat private introvert I wasn’t sure what topic it could be, but breathed a sigh of relief when she said, “Mother’sContinue reading “The Power of a Godly Mother Series | The Power of Her Weakness (Part 1 of 3)”

Some Trust in Chariots (and jobs, and education, and 401Ks, and relationships, and…)

A cousin of mine who lives overseas posted a meme on social media the other day. You’ve probably seen it. Its a packed-out stadium with the headline “Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in 2021”. While it can cause a chuckle from even this teetotaler, it sent me on a minor deep dive and what I found wasContinue reading “Some Trust in Chariots (and jobs, and education, and 401Ks, and relationships, and…)”

Why The Doctrine of Adoption is so Beautiful

In preparing for the upcoming relaunch of Sunday School, we will be taking a walk through Romans. What a rich, rich, rich set of scriptures. Yes, they all are but let’s just throw out our tent and stay a minute here, shall we?  In the Spring of 2018 my brother and sister-in-law shared with theContinue reading “Why The Doctrine of Adoption is so Beautiful”
