One Thing You MUST Make Sure Your Kids Know…

And never let them forget!

She sat slightly slumped in the dining room chair. Her head hung a little too low, chin pointing to the floor. I knew what the problem was. Vikki had already brought me up to speed by text earlier that day. “What’s up, Jess?” I asked anyway, wanting to hear it directly from her. She spoke […]

Your Life Will Never Be the Same

And she will always be daddy's little girl

We were a couple weeks out from a much needed family vacation. It had been more than three years since we had left town as a big ole wonderful herd. I had been on several out of town business trips since then, but that isn’t the same. We were all pretty pumped at the idea […]

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.
