Praying In The Promise

The past two weeks have been stressful. When I say stressful I mean… emotional rollercoaster wife breaking down into tears stressful. Why, you ask? Because the loan company we used lost its biggest investor and is currently imploding. As a result, we’ve been jumping through hoop after hoop to get the loan for our house. What […]

When I Met My Mentor

It was probably about 13 years ago… I had just recently returned to the Lord. My church at the time was hosting a winter retreat for the college/young adults group. I remember all my friends talking about what they were going through and what they wanted to hear from God about on the trip. The guest […]

Like Captain Kirk and Spock

Captain Kirk had Spock, Tom had Jerry, Han had Chewbakka, Mac has cheese… and I too am looking for a partner. Someone to keep me accountable. More than that; someone to push me for one year. I’ve set a challenge for myself this year and it’s to grow spiritually. This doesn’t happen alone! World change […]

Can You Run That By Me Again?

I can’t put my finger on it but today I just feel so… off… My brain is foggy and I’m not motivated for anything… I’m literally having to force myself to get anything productive done. It’s a good thing I’m starting work late today because I don’t know where my head is. That makes today […]

Religious Myths That Keep You From God

People believe all sorts of silly things. When it comes to religion our beliefs go by another term: theology. Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about theology. Mostly because I’m getting ready to send this month’s newsletter to the printers and it’s all about a cornerstone of theology, what God thinks when He looks at […]

Address Not Found, Return To Sender

It’s Monday and after a weekend of visiting family and driving all over the state, it’s back to the grind for me. Between school and work, I don’t have much time for anything else. I suppose I could sacrifice time with my wife… anyone here think that would be a good idea? No? Yeah, I […]

We Have A New President

So I’m busy watching the presidential inauguration this morning and whether or not you like Trump you have to admit, if he can pull off half of what he just said he wants to… it’s going to be a good 4 years. I’m doubting he’ll be able to make this country all sunshine and roses […]

Our King And His Kingdom

I’m going back to school for my new job and I know it makes me a nerd but I’m super excited to go to the store and get school supplies. I have to get a 3 ring binder, a calculator and some graphing paper… I’m like a kid who was just told to go buy candy. […]

What’s Holding You Back?

This was a bit of an intense weekend for me so I’ve been going through the word like woah today to recharge and reconnect with Holy Spirit. As I was reading this morning I came across this verse and I had to stop: You are not restrained by us, but you are restrained in your own […]
