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….

Define the Relationship Odds are, most of us will find ourselves in a dating relationship at some point in our lives.  As much as that may sound exciting (or terrifying) to us, the reality is how you enter into a relationship is just as, if not more, important as how you actually work out that relationship.  This is where so,…

I remember it…

Checking In at the Doctor’s Office Before I became a pastor, I actually worked in the healthcare industry. I was an administrator for a private pediatrics practice in Houston for four years while I studied at Dallas Theological Seminary.

By | The Branch | No Comments

READ: II Timothy 3:16 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. Yes he did… at least you believe he did.   But WHY do you believe what you believe? Why do you believe that George Washington was the first president of the U.S.,…
