Anti-Heroes Don’t Just Have a History…

by admin

I got up at 6am this morning to go for a run with a friend of mine. Actually I got up at 5am for no apparent reason, tried snuggling up to my sleepy wife (didn’t get anywhere… darn), then got up to get ready for the run. My friend pulls up in a VW Golf […]


Girls and Gardasil – Not a Good Combo

by admin

It was a few years ago that the vaccine Gardasil came to market and began to receive widespread publicity as health lobbyists pushed for government agencies to offer it to female schoolchildren.  For those who might not recall, Gardasil is a vaccine against Human Papilloma Virus, or HPV – a sexually transmitted disease that in […]


Tips for Doing Disney with a Big Family

by admin

Penniless Parenting had a guest post with some money-saving tips for going to Disney on the cheap.  They were great, but I don’t know if they addressed the larger family very well.  We’ve been to Disneyland twice as a family and Disney World once, and our oldest is 12.  Frankly even writing that makes me […]


Why Marriage Vows?

by admin

I saw a friend share a short piece on how to tell if you are with the right person.  The piece got me thinking, so I dug around Google to find out the source of the article.  I found it on this blog.  So go ahead and read it – it is a solid bit […]


Family Discipleship Plan

by admin

I have not been satisfied with any devotional ever, and my kids hate sitting still for Bible stories. But I am convicted that I need to take my job as the leader of this household seriously and set the example and pattern for growing in the Lord. To that end, I am starting today. I […]


Defining Manliness: Living Under Authority

Take the Easy Road?

by admin

I struggled with whether or not to write this because the truth is I have only been thinking about the subject lately because I have friends who are faced with major decisions right now.  And the advice almost everyone is giving them is the subject of this blog.  There are a lot of things about […]


Loving Your Blessings, Ignoring the Blesser

by admin

“Do you love this God who is everything, or do you just love everything He gives you?” – Francis Chan, Crazy Love (2008) As I was reading the above lines, I was struck by the two levels this idea speaks to.  To the Christian, we easily take for granted the relationship God wants with us.  Like […]


Woman at the Well, Part 4: Changing the Subject, Avoiding the Issue

by admin

We are finally returning to a series I started a fair time ago.  The story of the Woman at the Well has always fascinated me for the many layers that are there, embedded in a simply recounting of Jesus meeting a woman while on a hot, dusty trek from Jerusalem up into Galilee, where He […]


The iPhone Mom and Over-Reaction – Godly Grief vs. Worldly Grief

by admin

A few days ago a Facebook note was being shared around the people I am friends with.  It was entitled, “Dear Mom on the iPhone” and it originated, as far as I can tell, with this blog post by a Mom blogging at 4 Little Fergusons.  I was impressed with the thoughtful and timely comment, […]
