Church and Modeling

I have much to say on the topic of church.  There is a great falling-out in our church day, and I would love to address some of the issues.  The one that I want to look at today is the topic children’s church.  Although I am a very talented children’s and youth worker, I totally …

Persevere Through the Trials of Life

My heart weighs heavy today as I reflect.  I have no specific idea where I am going with this post, so I will just write and see what happens.  I guess that at times, we must think inward and pray how we might grow outward.  No growth comes without a struggle.  Jesus said that we …

Pictures of Christ

I remember an old story that was a great picture of Christ.  It was spring of 2006 and I took my little in Big Brothers Big Sisters to a local fish hatchery / fishing location.  He was not very interested in fishing that day but rather, he wanted to hike up the hill.  This boy …

I was out after church with a bunch of sports freaks.  You know the type: loud, rowdy, teasing each other about the jerseys that they were wearing.  I got to talking to another person that was there that, much like myself, was not really into sports.  We made an interesting connection between evil and football!  …

Youth are Still Kids, Not Autonomous Adults!

I do a lot of work in the tech field.  I can fix computers, build home networks, write webpages, and do graphic design.  My current day job consists of many of these elements.  I am also expanding my skills (a concept that I think everyone should do), so I was doing a few internet searches …

Give Your Money…Give Your Life

Once again a book crosses my path that made me think a little bit, and even reflect on my past, contemplate my present, and plan my future.  I read a book on money!  I have read the Christian argument for giving from every possible angle in the Christian circles.  Some people will quote lots of …
