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 […]
Philippians 1:6 (NKJV) “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” Failure is big business these days. Been on YouTube lately? #fail #instantkarma #failvid How many hours have you burned watching fail videos on YouTube? Go ahead and […]
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 […]
Deuteronomy 33:27 NKJV 1 Peter 5:7 NKJV The eternal God is your refuge, …casting all your care upon Him, And underneath are the everlasting arms. for He cares for you. I am extremely blessed. God has blessed me with an awesomely wonderful wife. He has gifted […]
He must think he is being pretty sneaky. The room is dark and I am sure he believes no one is watching. But I am. Watching and listening. And loving every minute. He is playing with two Little People and they are carrying on a conversation that seems to be a little heated at the […]
Ephesians 5:25-29 (NKJV) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her…So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does […]

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.
Back in 2009, I started my first blog as a commemoration of leaving my 20s and moving into the “dreaded” 30’s. It was a pretty big deal for me at the time. I was no longer “young”, I thought. Approaching the threshold of middle aged was pretty close to devastating for me. (That blog still […]
Our most recent arrival (number 13) is three months old today. After having so many babies around for the last 17 years, I guess you could say we have become somewhat experienced on baby raising. We certainly have our own opinions about loving and nurturing little ones. Not that we are always right, just most […]
