Time to Step Out

Is it too late to wish you a Happy New Year? I say no. HAPPY NEW YEAR! At the end of 2021, my family and I tried something together for the first time. We went snowmobiling. I’ll admit it…I was anxious about the whole thing. Being injury prone, getting hurt was the very first thing…

Root Your Resolutions

Did you ever stop and ask yourself why we take this time of year to make resolutions for ourselves? I think it’s because the beginning of a new year serves as a good checkpoint and marker in our journey to start over with a clean slate, as we move out with the old and in…

God is Good No Matter What!

2021— We thought it was going to be a distinctive break from the hardships of 2020. It was as though the New York City New Year’s Eve Ball drop signified the end of all the chaos we endured the previous year. But 2021 brought a lot of chaos and division in itself. The truth is,…

Jesus is Leading

My family is full of musicians – they sing, play instruments, and harmonize. Whenever my adult kids are home, there is singing throughout the house. It’s one of my favorite sounds. Dance has always been my preferred art form. I’ve been known to make my family laugh by breaking out unexpected dance moves at the…

Let Your Words Heal Not Wound

As many of you know, my wife and I have a teenage daughter. She is a wonderful girl yet challenging. Those who have/had teenagers can attest to how their moods can change in a flash and how that moodiness can ripple through a family. It’s easy to let a scowl, tone of voice, or harsh…

Letting Go Is Where Life Begins

I wonder, does this happen to you too?  For me, I’ll begin to get a sense that God is telling me something, and then I start to see and hear affirmations of it everywhere – words from a loved one, a page from a book I’m just casually glancing at, even street signs! Seemingly, one…

Climbing a mountain is easier when you focus on the steps not the size of the mountain.

Focus on the steps, not the mountain

Don’t look at the mountain in front of you. Instead, focus on each step, one step at a time. We are more than conquerors through Christ who gives us strength, but sometimes, when we look at the obstacles in front of us, we don’t feel so strong, right?  This past 4th of July weekend was amazing wasn’t it? The weather…
