I want you to stop and imagine something with me. Imagine that feeling you get during corporate worship. You are in church. The music is amazing. The choir is singing your favorite song, the one that gets you every time. The energy inside of you is bubbling up. You feel wave upon wave of gratitude … Continue reading It’s a State of Mind…
I love Google… one of those modern conveniences spoiling our poor children - like the microwave was for us. Anyway, in preparation for this blog post I decided to google “Why do we celebrate Christmas?” just to see what I would find. I had my answer, but I was curious to see what was out … Continue reading The Reason… For the Season??
When I think of the holidays, I am surrounded by wood paneling with the smells of bacon grease and cake batter tickling my nose. I am at a long dining room table with absolutely no elbow room.

I went to a funeral last week. It was the latest in three similar funerals I have been to in the last year of so. You see, my granny was one of nine brothers and sisters. They were a family deep rooted in heritage and God. I grew up with large family dinners, playtime with … Continue reading The Power of a Testimony
Food. We have a love-hate relationship with it here in first-world America. Oh, how we love it, but oh, how we talk about how bad it can be. We put so many labels on food that the labels have labels but that “garbage” still sells out. Restaurants are always busy because we love to eat, … Continue reading A Diet of Meat and Bread
As I have grown in my relationship with Christ, He will focus me on areas of my life that need some spiritual attention. That spiritual attention is where most of my blog post come from. They come not from my expertise in the area, but my need for growth. Think of it like having the … Continue reading Parenting from the Vine
The running app I use has a setting for power songs. It is designed so that when you start feeling tired, or when you are at the end and start slowing down, or just anytime you need a boost of motivation, you can hit the power songs icon and your pre-selected power songs will play. … Continue reading What’s your fight song?
