What are you putting off? If you are like me, multiple topics come to mind. So, seek the Spirit’s guidance on what to start today; get into the Word for help in defeating temptations; remember “little is much when God is in it.”...Keep Reading

As our belief in God transforms our hearts, our lives are completely changed, we become distinct in our identities that are reflections of God's grace and love. This Distinct Identity is what we long for, not as a requirement to be recognized, but as an expression of our love and devotion to Jesus....
Spring is almost here. I don’t know if you are like me, but I love springtime! Trees grow their leaves; flowers bloom, birds build nests and lay their eggs. It feels like the earth is coming alive. Spring always brings my mind to Jesus Christ. Before He is in our life, we are dead inside. But once we invite Him into our lives to be our Savior, He gives us life and beauty....
You can feel the uncertainty in everyone's eyes, and the sense of insecurity can be felt in what used to be deemed the most stable any level of society, from jobs to churches, even in our schools. The reality of COVID continues to wrap its arms around like an amoeba's pseudopod engulfs its food...
Do I seek satisfaction in who people think that I am? Some may think who we are is synonymous with our occupation. There is a desire to be successful in what one finds themselves doing. But even more than that, there is that innate drive to be better than someone else. The drive to be the best secretary, teacher, mom, interior decorator, doctor, lawyer, electrician, mechanic, welder, nurse… only to gain nods of approval....
I was often asked, “How are you guys doing with virtual learning?” or “How have you handled all being stuck inside and being forced to slow down?” I’ll be honest, at first, it was extremely hard. ...Keep Reading
Things are changing all around us, the darkness is visible. When I was a kid, and I felt scared or alone, I would shut my eyes to hide from the dark. I would close them tightly as if my closed eyes made the entire world disappear. The problem was, the darkness only enhanced my fears, in fact, it made me feel more anxious and alone. I quickly learned to rely on my imaginati...Keep Reading
As we sit in the middle of this tumultuous year, we wonder if it’s ever going to end. Even more, we wonder what God has in store with all He has allowed us to endure this year. Rest assured...Keep Reading
As it relates to the home, I think perhaps one of the adages that most proves itself prophetic over time is the following ... “Children become like their parents”. As a matter of fact, as the years pass by and I see old faces from the past who I haven’t seen for a long time, that is often a point of emphasis for them ... “You are looking more and more like your dad...Keep Reading
One of my all-time favorite quotes is, “You must prepare your child for the road, but you can’t prepare the road for your child.” If you’ve never heard that before, stop a minute and let it sink in. We all want to keep our children safe; they are precious gifts from God. We can’t even begin to consider what we’d do if something were to happen to one of them....Keep Reading
A small metal trash can had been placed at the curb with the garbage to be collected the next morning. It was empty. When I noticed it from my bedroom window I thought it looked familiar; so began the investigation. I retrieved the empty can and returned it to where my memory led. I waited....Keep Reading
What most of us assumed would go away in a matter of days in China, has become a global pandemic, according to the World Health Organization. The Coronavirus is now headline news on every major network and on social media feeds everywhere. We can’t escape it....Keep Reading
When both of my kids were young, they had no problem expressing what they wanted or needed. My wife and I would’ve sworn they were both extroverts, as they (like millions of other Millennials) let us know if they were hungry, thirsty, in need of a toy, or desiring a friend. Then they became high school students and later, college students. Eventually, the situation chang...Keep Reading
Dear Titan Families, I was recently on a Zoom conference with administrators from all over the world. One of the presenters gave us this quote, and I thought it was so appropriate for the times we are living through. For Tolkien fans this may be familiar since it comes from his writings: "Frodo: I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened. ...Keep Reading
