My children are ages 10, 7 and 2. This was almost the exact age of my older sisters and brother when our biological mother decided to abandon them and never look back. Continue Reading…
Last week I had the privilege of meeting up and having coffee with Dustin who posts over at Abraham Chronicles, a place where we can “learn how to do awesome thing we call ‘fatherhood’ the right way. The way God meant for us show love to our kids.” Dustin does nothing BUT fatherhood the right way, and it is clearly evident.
Prior to meeting, he had asked me to write a little diddy on his blog because he was going to be just a tad busy with his beautiful newborn girl. I was more than happy to.
Here’s a little excerpt:
I loved the show Friday Night Lights. It’s a good wholesome TV show about the life of Coach Taylor and football in the semi-fictitious city of Dillon, Texas. Honestly, I can say it will be a TV series that will be one of my forever favorites. Along with 24 and Lost.
One of the episodes in its final season depicted a young man “Riggins” who was up for parole. The reason why he was in jail is an entirely different story in itself, but let’s just say he didn’t deserve to be where he was. So Riggins had Coach Taylor, and a family friend testify on Riggins behalf, so that he could get paroled. A third person, his brother who happened to be the reason why he was locked away to begin with, gave a pretty shaky testimony as well.
Long story short, it was enough to get him paroled.

Every time I even think about doing this, it makes me sick to my stomach. This makes me think about how God has made me as an individual, how he has NOT made me as an individual, and further confirms His will for my life.
This is what is going on: Continue Reading…
If you have been reading here for the past few months, you have probably already gathered that I share a pretty strong connection with my faith. You can read more about it on my about page.
This is not what this post is about.
This is about how much I love community, and more specifically how much I love this blogging community. I love new visitors and I love comments. I appreciate the views and readership from people of all different walks of life.
Whether you believe in God…
Whether you consider yourself a Christian, Muslim, Catholic, Mormon, Jewish, or anything…
Bottom line: Everybody has a story to share, everybody has an opinion, and everybody reading this,
Yesterday I thought I had a great idea while remembering some of my favorite quotes from movies, books, or speeches.
So I wrote them down.
