Church

When I was a kid, I always thought that “church” was just another place I had to go. Most times, I could manage to get through without falling asleep but I was always anticipating the invitation song. I could even tell when the preacher was winding down, which to me, meant that it was time […]

Church Camp

One of my favorite places in the world is West KY Youth Camp. The camp began in the early 60s but the first time I attended was in the mid 70s. I was around five years old at the time. My father was director that week and my mother was a counselor. I can still […]

The Middle

Why is it so easy to drift away? One minute we’re on fire for Jesus. Our lives are going perfect, our days are sunny, life is good. Then all of a sudden, we find ourselves far away from where we need to be. Stress slips in. Doubt takes over. Satan whispers that we’re not good […]

Do you know the Swing Set Song?

I love children! I think they’re the greatest people to be around so every time Wednesday rolls around I’m always excited to be able to spend some quality time with the kids in Bible class. Last night was no exception. At the beginning of class, we always start a prayer list. One child was very […]

Wonderfully Worthy and Wholly Holy

Webster’s defines the term “worthy” as having adequate or great merit, character, or value and although there may be times in our life when we don’t feel especially worthy, God, by giving his Son for us, proved that we are (John 3:16). Long before we were born, God saw our worth and set into action […]

Are You Sure?

I have the opportunity to coach an elementary school chess team and last week was our annual chess tournament. I repeatedly stress to my students that chess is a lot like life. The choices you make, whether good or bad, will influence your outcome and although you may think you’re making a good choice, in […]

The Bailout

You can’t turn on the television, open the newspaper, or talk to friends these days without the topic of the economy being one of the main issues. Everyone has some concerns about America’s financial crisis and although Christians know that this world is not their home, some are still interested and may even be concerned […]

I am Saved

My father was a minister. From my earliest memories, I was taught that Jesus was the Son of God. He did live, he did come to earth, and he did give his life for others and I believed that…for awhile. My father, the unwavering patriarch of our small family, was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s […]
