A Safe Space

Due to events last year on many college campuses across our great nation, there’s been much discussion about the concept of safe spaces. Do a Google search of the phrase safe space, and this will be the first thing that comes up: A Safe Space is a place where anyone can relax and be able to fully express, without fear of being made…

How to Flourish

Can we have an honest moment together? When SCOTUS ruled on homosexual marriage last week, my mind began engaging in a battle over my emotions. I was emotional. That day I sat in front of two people I am doing marriage counseling with and held back tears.  Even this morning, I had another moment as I thought about my daughters and…

Socially Incorrect

I’ve been wanting to write this particular piece for a long time, but it simply hasn’t felt like the right timing.  Today feels right, so here goes.  I should start this with a disclaimer.  If you finish reading this and feel like I’m being a bit mean-spirited, please understand, that is not my intent.  Also, allow me to say that what I’m about…

Husband, Unleash Your Family

While I ran this morning, I was listening to a podcast.  The preacher was speaking to husbands about an old term called headship. He said he likes headship better than the word lead because there are plenty of wives who are better leaders than their husbands.  Leadership doesn’t necessarily make for headship.  I’ve been thinking about this all morning, so this blog may be more or…

Revelation Journey

Ever took a long journey?  I don’t mean a long road trip over the course of a week or so.  I mean a journey where the destination is visible, but you have no idea how long it will take you to get there.  A journey where you’re determined to finish, but you’re not in a rush to finish.  You want…

Glory to God Alone

Glory to God alone.  Here’s a hypothetical.  An alien invasion is happening, but not just any kind of aliens.  These aliens are alien zombies, so not only are they from another planet, but they’re the undead from a planet far, far away.  People are helpless.  We have no technology that can stop them.  And because they’re zombies even when we…
