Saw this on Facebook and thought it has a great message...worth the read and definitely the share! A little girl had been shopping with her Mom in Wal-Mart. She must have been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckle faced image of innocence. It was pouring outside. The kind of rain that gushes over the… Continue reading The Rain And Faith
There is an interesting story in scripture where the disciples rebuke those bringing children to Jesus. For you see back in those days children were of no "importance" (not a productive member of) to society until they reached a certain age. Maybe the disciples felt that the children were just not important enough considering all… Continue reading Jesus And The Children
This brought tears to my eyes. There ARE so many dads out there who are MISSING EVERYTHING.
It is time for change men! It is time for all of us to take on our role as men, husbands and daddy with a passion that can not be quenched by the stressors of life. Yeah, it’s hard but so worth every moment.
To the father of my children, a stranger in familiar skin,
I’m not mad at you. I’m sad for you.
You’re missing everything.
I looked at you as I dropped my heart into your apartment this past Friday, the first one you’d had the boys for in over a month, and once again was reminded of your reality.

I smelled your hangover. And I remembered seeing you like this every…

My children are too important. Time to Stu to get back to the basics.
I believe we often learn life’s biggest lessons through the small, regular, daily things we experience from the world around us. The big things change us, but the small things shape us. We are woven together by the scraps of each day; the moments that seem small and could easily be overlooked by others.
Parenting is full of these moments.
I have many memories that shaped the way I feel about myself, the way I view others, and my relationship with my parents. On the surface, they were extremely small, insignificant moments; but they mattered.
Now that I am the parent, I am the one who holds each of these moments in my hands, both good and bad. What I do with them, matters. I want to be intentional in everything I do for my boys so that I not only leave behind a legacy I, and God, would be…
