Your Kids Don’t Need You…

By | Life | No Comments

Your Kids Don’t Need You… Brandee and I always dreamed of having kids.  Even when we were kids, one of our greatest ambitions was to become parents.  Well, you know, independently… we didn’t know each other when we were kids.  But hey isn’t it convenient that we eventually did meet each other?  For most of us when we get married,…

Reflecting God to our Kids

By | Life | One Comment

Being a dad is one of the most incredible things I have ever experienced. I mean I love it. I love being a parent. However, what is challenging is that we don’t get a manual with a list of instructions of proper care and maintenance for our children. With that said, what is our role of parents. For Christians, it…

Wives, Kill the Foxes

By | Life | No Comments

Marriage is hard.  Anyone who’s been married even a little while has been baptized into that reality.  It’s the honest truth that the cotton-candy, fairy tale picture of happily-ever-after doesn’t last long and gives way to the reality of the battle for your marriage.  It’s the way it should be; marriage isn’t about sentiment, it’s about a mission. Less cruise…

Marriage on Mission

By | Life, The Branch, The Well | 2 Comments

Marriage on Mission When I was in college, I had two ideas of where my life was headed: I was going to go to seminary and become a missionary to teach people about Jesus in some far off country, and I was going to be married to someone I loved and adored, become a dad and grow a family.  At…

Sex

I’m a father of three daughters.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been asked if I’m afraid to raise three girls; I suppose the sentiment is really attached to raising three teenage girls since my daughters (who are 3, 2, and 2 months old) all generally sit still, read books, and don’t break things like their male counterparts….

When Should I Start Dating?

By | Life, Stories, The Well | One Comment

When? (Part 2 in our series on dating and relationships) “There is so much conflict and confusion over “when the right time” is to date someone.  And it makes sense, since so many of us experience dating by stumbling into it.  So is there really some kind of line, some kind of initiation moment that tells us now is the…

Guard Your Heart

By | General, Life, Stories, The Branch, The Well | 2 Comments

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…

Out of Office: Leaving Everything.

By | 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…

Strings Attached?

By | Life | No Comments

A seminary professor of mine recently posted on Facebook…”Grace comes with strings attached.” It was a statement that caused me to really think. I read some of the angry comments beneath the post reacting in horror. Charged statements assuming that the professor meant that salvation is earned as opposed to a gift. I don’t think he meant it like that. What he…

My Week as a Single Parent

By | 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…
