College Students: How To Stay A Christian During College

College should be one of the best times in your life because you are out on your own and making your own choices. BUT college should NEVER be the time you ditch God and your faith in order to experience the world. I read recently where 70% of college students quit Christianity during college … despite […]

Life and Death … It’s the Circle of Life

The circle of life is pretty amazing when you think about it. In the same hospital … just a short distance apart, I saw life and death this week. I stood yesterday in a room with a proud new mom and dad as they welcomed their new baby boy into this world.  This young family […]

The “Bratty” Little Girl at VBS

Last night at VBS there was a little girl that was the last one to be picked up. While we waited for her ride she playfully called me “butt-head” and other names that’s weren’t all that bad, but inappropriate for a little girl age 7. At one point she leaned over and said, “I’m gonna […]

They Curse, Cheat, Sleep Around, Get Drunk … and Then Invite Me to Church

I have a friend that’s not a Christian, but she’s very curious about my faith, my beliefs and Christianity. She didn’t grow up in any religion or church and knows very little about the bible. She often asks me questions about Christianity that are very simple, honest and sometimes down right painful. Sometimes her questions […]

Will You Really Spend “THAT” Much This Christmas?

Lea and I spent the day talking about the Black Friday deals we wish we could get. There were several things that caught our eye, but none were worth getting up at 3 a.m. on Friday to go get them. Seems like every year Lea and I talk about not spending “as much” on gifts […]

Influencing a New Gang Member

Taz is a young man who blew into our community about a year ago. His past is a rough one and he openly confesses … “I’ve probably done more harm to people than good.” Thankfully, some kind folks I do church with, saw value in Taz and reached out to him not long after he […]

Be a Christian … But Don’t Be a Jerk

Christians SHOULD be setting the bar high as the most loving, gracious and generous people on this earth. The problem is … we don’t always do a good job looking like the Jesus we claim to follow. Often times we have treated others unkind in the name of religion. We talk out of both sides […]

Wearing Pink Flip-Flops for Jesus

I’d like you to meet Canon. He and his family went with us to Honduras. Canon just turned 12-years-old and was a “go getter” in Honduras. The picture fits him perfectly … everywhere he went he had his backpack FULL of things to give away to others. He brought stuff from home like baseball caps, […]

You Might Be a Hypocrite If…

I was asked recently what a hypocrite is. The dictionary describes a hypocrite as someone who “pretends to be more virtuous or religious  than he really is.” Or in simpler terms, a hypocrite is someone who says one thing and does the opposite. I’m far from being a perfect person, but I don’t ever want […]

Good Compliments Gone Bad

I’m not a fan of critics because any fool can criticize.  I figure there are enough critics in this world so I honestly try hard to be a cheerleader with my words. But sometimes even the best planned compliments come out wrong. Like early this past Sunday morning, when I meant to say something nice, […]

How God Sees Us!

We must have looked like a motley crew, to those sitting around us. The five of us were sitting close together on a Wednesday night for bible study at church.  I sat there and thought to myself, “Wow, look at how God has sat us all together right here tonight.” To someone sitting around they […]

10 Signs You Might be a Lukewarm Christian

Katy is the book winner from last week’s giveaway. Congrats. I will be sticking a book in the mail to her later this week. Lukewarmness is a battle I have to fight regularly. Being lukewarm as a Christian is NOT good. Lukewarmness is found somewhere between being hot (on fire for God as he demands) […]

Get Rid of 50 Things Challenge

“I want to de-clutter my life from material things!” ~ Me I love my Monday night bible study group. Every week a group of twenty-or-so people show up for a bible study at my house.

A Christian’s Self-Worth

My friend Erin is a single college girl. The other day I applauded her Facebook status that said something along the lines of, “I do not base my self-worth upon dating lots a guys. I don’t have to constantly be dating someone, to be someone.” She is 100% right, and I love her maturity. She […]

Be Bold Today

Something that has really been gnawing on me lately is the amount of people who claim Christianity, but don’t live it in their everyday life. I guess what we’ve failed to get across to the world is that along with the being a Christian comes a lifestyle change. Transformation. Christianity is about transformation… it’s about […]

The Power of Your Words

“Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” Ephesians 4:29 Whoever came up with the phrase “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me,” was a fool.

Being a believer is Easy. Being a follower is Hard.

I spent this past weekend in Santa Fe, New Mexico, doing a “Strong Marriages” seminar. I had a great time. I don’t have a lot to blog about this morning, so I thought I’d share a few things from my journal. Here are a few things I’ve written down this past week about being a […]

A Heart Like Amie’s

Amie has the most amazing heart. Amie is one of our young people at church. She’s just graduated and will start college next month. More than once, Amie has called me asking for help. No, not ever for herself, but always for other people. Every time she sees someone in town that looks homeless, hungry […]

Blessed Like the First Kid in the Parade

This morning was Childress’ Old Settler’s parade. The boys and I rode in the parade so we could throw out candy with little VBS invitations on them. As I threw out the candy, I couldn’t help but think about the crazy parade I were in a few years ago …. and the embarrassing thing that […]

Filthy Rich

We’re blessed to be some of the richest people in the world. But often times here’s what happens … “Because we don’t usually have to depend on God for food, money to buy our next meal, or shelter, we don’t feel needy. In fact, we generally think of ourselves as fairly independent and capable. Even […]

A Modern Day Version of the Good Samaritan … well sort of.

I hate being late. In fact, I detest it. I actually like being places at least 10 minutes early, but oh boy, was I running late last Tuesday to my bible class. I knew in about 3 minutes I’d have a room full of women chanting, “Where’ve you been. You’re late!”  I’d been out running […]

CHRISTIANITY’S IMAGE PROBLEM

Last week I wrote a short post called, “Are Christians too Anti-homosexual, Political and Judgmental?” …because according to the world, we are! I was overwhelmed by the opinions that were given in the comment section on that post. To sum up the majority of opinions, I’d say we all agree that the church, and Christianity […]

ARE CHRISTIANS TOO ANTI-HOMOSEXUAL, TOO POLITICAL & TOO JUDGMENTAL?

I’ve lost plenty of sleep over David Kinnaman’s book, “unChristian: What a New Generation Really Thinks About Christianity … and Why it matters.” The book deals with a new generation of young people who see Christianity and the church as only anti-homosexual, sheltered, too political and judgmental. Where has this new generation got these ideas? […]

HOW CHRISTIANS ARE SUPPOSED TO ACT

It’s a well known fact that waiters and waitresses all across America hate working the Sunday lunch shift, because of the way they are treated by “Christians” who eat out after Sunday morning church services. I find that absolutely and positively ridiculous. It’s also a common known fact that not only are Sunday lunch “Christians” […]

JESUS FLAVORED or 100% JESUS

One of my latest Runner’s World magazines was singing the praises of pomegranate & blueberry juice. Both juices are packed full of antioxidants, which are cancer (and other disease) fighters. I need all of that I can get. So while at the store this weekend, I thought I’d see if they had a bottle of […]

CAN A CHRISTIAN WATCH RATED-R MOVIES & LISTEN TO SECULAR MUSIC?

Funny video … a good reminder that you can be in the world, just not of the world. Someone recently asked me, “Can a Christian participate in culture and be a part of society?

MANY CHURCHES ARE TURNING OUT JERK FACTORIES?

As you can probably tell by my last post, I’m not real fond of people who claim Christianity but don’t live it in their lives during the week. I’m bothered by people that can worship God on Sunday morning and then be rude to their waitress at lunch an hour later. Christianity is about a […]

FAILING TO BE LIKE JESUS

Prejudice is pre-judging someone before you know their motives or actions.  I’d like to think there is not a prejudice bone in my body and that I love everyone  and that regardless of their color, nationality, or lifestyle, but I found out recently I still have a lot of work to do when it comes to […]

I STRUGGLE

Many think because of my position as a minister that I never struggle with the common things they struggle with.
