When he was about to enter Egypt, he said to Sarai his wife. “I know that you are a woman beautiful in appearance, and when the Egyptians see you, they will say, “This is his wife.” Then they will kill me, but they will let you live. Genesis 12:11-12
I came across this passage this [...]
Early last year I shared an interview with Christian author, Gary Thomas in which he reminded us that “Every marriage is difficult…There is no such thing as an easy marriage…There will never be a marriage without struggle, on this side of heaven. It is healthy.”.
It is a statement that I have reflected on [...]
One night recently, as we were reading our nightly Bible story before tucking in our oldest son, it struck me more deeply than it had before. The story was Daniel in the lion’s den. We’d read the story to him many times before, and of course I’ve heard the story many times myself all throughout [...]
It’s once again the season for celebrations and family get-togethers. For some, it’s a time of peace and joy, and for others, it’s a dreaded time of family drama and frustration.

Just as I [...]
When you look around you, do you see those people who seem to just have it all together…. ALL the time?
It’s the couple who is always on time, looking completely neat, calm, cool, and collected. You know the ones. They have the beautiful home where everything always seems to be pristine and organized; the [...]
As I write today, I can hear sporadic outbursts from my two-year-old as he is fighting sleep. ”Want to pay wif my cars but it nap time…. I sad and cyin! can’t pay wif ANYfing…” The poor little guy is so tired, he’s far from being reasonable. If you have children or have been around children, [...]
On the first day of my school for my son, I met a nice older gentlemen that was dropping off his grand kids for school. He was the kind of guy I like to talk to. Well into his seventies but he his eyes and personality let you know he loved life and making people [...]
The news is often sickening anymore. I’m brokenhearted over the recent news of the teenagers who shot and killed a young man “for the fun of it.” Not only am I brokenhearted for the promising young life that was needlessly cut short, or for loved ones who are grieving his loss, but also for our [...]
