Ambition

By | Blog, The Well | No Comments

For the seven years before I entered the ministry, I was promoted 4 times at my work.  I moved up the ranks from a mid-level manager to an executive at a large corporation.   I was AMBITIOUS, constantly striving for the next big thing!  Don’t get me wrong; I worked hard and had a relationship with the Lord, and did not…

Why Community Group?

By | Blog, The Well | One Comment

When James and I got married, I made it very clear that we would not be joining a community group.  We did lots of churchy activities, so I didn’t see a particular need for joining a forced group of People Who Meet on Wednesdays to sit around in a circle and yammer about the Bible and our feelings.  After all,…

Guard Your Heart It’s amazing how much romance dominates our collective psyches: from holidays to movies, music, clothing… just about everything, every aspect of our culture obsesses about the idea that people fall in love and live happily ever after.  It’s powerful, potent stuff, and it’s hard not to let your heart get swept up in it. I remember it…

By | Blog, Life | No Comments

Out of Office When I read this verse, I think of Levi plopping an “out of office” sign on his desk and leaving. But let’s try and put our heads where Levi was at. Levi was unmarried, probably a young adult. Marriage may not have been his thing. Commitment might have always been a bridge too far. Plus, what father would hand…

When I was 12 turning 13 I had a real identity crisis. Although I know that puberty was an identity crisis all of it’s own that’s not the subject I’ll cover here. When I was growing up in Texas, I was a “smart” kid. I built my identity on it. Being the first one done on quizzes and tests was…

My Week as a Single Parent

By | Blog, Life, Stories | One Comment

My Week as a Single Parent I’ve known many single parents in my life; this was the first time I really felt like I caught a glimpse of the struggles they go through.  This past Sunday, my two-week old daughter Joanna (JoJo from here on out) was admitted into the hospital with RSV, a respiratory infection that in infants like JoJo…

UPDATE 2/12/2017: Hey guys! Our Valentine’s Day event is now full!  Unfortunately our space limits us to a certain number of families, but I’m excited for the future when we can have more opportunities like this.  Keep an eye out, and if you have any suggestions, just let us know!   I still remember my first Valentine’s Day date with…

I Was Blind, Too

By | Blog, General, Life, Stories, The Branch | No Comments

This morning, I was attending a Bible study down in East Austin, listening to the discussion about a passage in the book of John.  John 9, the healing of man born blind. The story is a familiar one for many of us: Jesus and his disciples were walking through town when they encountered a man who was blind from birth….
