Matthew 7:7 – 11 NKJV 7 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. 9 Or what man is there among you who, if […]
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.
We were on our way to church on a Sunday night. This was a few years back. Steph was a teeny little girl back then with huge gorgeous eyes, a mop of crazy wild brown hair, and what have become known as “spaghetti arms.” I believe Jessie was probably the baby because Steph was in […]
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 […]
It was past lunch time. And I was hungry. Fortunately there is a place just up the road that likes to brag they make sandwiches really fast. You know the one. It was late and I needed some food fast. Not fast food, but food fast. You get it, right? So I jumped on their […]
I don’t usually like to focus on the weaknesses and shortcomings of others. I have plenty of my own to fill up these pages. And while that may be painful, if becoming vulnerable and stripping off the facade brings just a little encouragement to those struggling to Lead their Imperfect Family (hint: we all are), […]
I was draped like a limp dish rag across our living room couch. “Just marinating”, like a old friend of mine used to say. Letting the minutes tick by with nothing better to do. My Grandpa was living with us at the time. We were the only two home. He was probably in his room […]
Remember that little jingle from back in the day. Saturday morning cartoons were the best! I have been silent as a tomb here since before Thanksgiving. Unforgivable, I know. There are a myriad of reasons why. A few of which you can read over on Facebook. But I won’t bore you with my complaining. […]
By today’s standards, I was young. Some would say I was too young to get married at only 20 years old. It seems the average 20 year old today is still learning to lace his shoes correctly. Pile on the responsibility of marriage and most would probably run the other way. It makes me feel […]
