Who wants a slice of pain spread with a little discomfort?

Beginnings, endings, and our comfort zone...

My family eats a lot of bread. No surprise, right? If everyone eats a slice of toast (or two) and a cup of hot cocoa for breakfast we pretty much destroy an entire loaf, or at least close to it. Making everyone a sandwich? You don’t even want to know. Good thing bread is still […]

Dad-deVotionals! Every week right here!

I am super excited about this y’all. (Yes, I just said, “y’all”. I live in the Midwest, right?)

Starting this week, I will be posting a weekly devotional for Dads! Dad-deVotionals, I like to call them. (See what I did there? Daddy = Dad-de, clever right? Ok, never mind.)

Just a little encouragement, based in Scripture, from my heart to dads. Being a dad is difficult and we could all use a little help now and again.

So come on back every week and share with other Dads that could use an encouraging word.
