Or do they? I think for most of us, regardless of what we say, we subconsciously wrestle with this thought. People don’t change. In all honesty it’s really easy to arrive at that conclusion. Think about it. How often has someone hurt you? Not just once, but over and over again. Maybe even by the exact same action as the time before. It’s easy to conclude that they will always be the… Read More

I’ll be honest, I’m a young parent. Young in the sense of my actual parenting experience spans just over 4 years. And I openly admit I don’t know a lot, I’m still learning. While I’ve worked with kids and families a lot in the past, parenting your own kids is different. I can’t just say “good luck” and go home to my kid-free life! Now I have an 11 year old daughter,… Read More

Have you ever taken a moment and read Paul’s greetings and closings of his letters? He made a point to draw attention to grace and peace. He loved his people. The people that God entrusted him to shepherd. Paul poured into them regardless of his own situations. Through pain, imprisonments, trials and persecution, he continued to minister to them. Paul loved his flock. While this is evident throughout his letters, there is… Read More

Come, I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring my people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the children of Israel out of Egypt?” Exodus 3:10-11 Have you ever been faced with a task that seems so dauntingly huge, you can’t see past the obstacles? Maybe you believe there really is light at… Read More

This particular post is one that has taken time. Time in reflection, prayer, writing, and more reflection, prayer, and writing. Over the course of several weeks, this post has come into existence through reflection and study of what I believe could be argued, one of the most pivotal moments in Biblical history: Moses’ encounter with God at the burning bush. Enjoy. And the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a… Read More

This past Sunday, we started the year off with a fitting new series at The Anchor Church. “Resolutions: Back to the Basics” As I have finished preparing for my message this Sunday and have been reflecting on it, I am also reminded of Pastor Alex’s message. He posed this question, that is one every follower of Jesus should ask themselves: “Am I Honestly Imitating Jesus or am I just Spiritually Asleep?” Take… Read More

Have you ever been given favor because of someone else? Maybe they “put in a good word” for you, or picked up your mess so others wouldn’t notice. Perhaps they taught you something that when utilized, brought success. I think if we take a moment and think, we can all come up with at least one person who fits the bill. If you are like me, you can come up with a… Read More

Whether you like yours or not, your name has significance. There is a reason your name is what it is. The reason may be silly, or dumb in your opinion, but the fact is there was reason behind picking that name for you. My middle name was picked in honor of my great-grandpa. Parts of my children’s names were chosen because of the connection to family, or my wife and mine’s personal… Read More

Anyone who knows me well, knows I have developed a love for genealogical research over the years. There is satisfaction and happiness I get from successfully learning and tracing my ancestral roots as far back as I possibly can. With the revelation of my interest and fascination often comes the question why. Why do I invest the time, the money, at times my emotions (as it can be frustrating!)? Why is this… Read More
