Dads, when was the last time you scheduled a physical for yourself or took your child to their doctor appointment? If you can’t remember, or you can remember but just realized it was a long time ago, don’t feel bad. You’re not alone. It has been reported that women make roughly 80% of the healthcare decisions […]
Foreword: I wrote this article to help spouses supporting a spouse going through cancer treatments from diagnosis to treatment to remission. When my wife was first diagnosed with breast cancer, and throughout the process I realized there is not a lot of support for the “supporting spouse.” Hence, I created this short article to help others […]
Yesterday, my wife and I were talking outside the RV while our daughter napped. The topic of conversation was life. Specifically, “what do you want life to look like?”
It’s an awkward conversation to have without talking about money. In years past, we […]
1 Peter 4:10
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
Every one of us has different gifts that can be used to help our fellow man. Some of these gifts are not in the form of talents, but rather, people and things […]
I have never been a role model for anybody.
I don’t mean I have done bad things and nobody should see me as a role model. I have just never been in the situation where someone has looked up to me for guidance or motivation.
My son, Noah, is 9 months old now. The past 9 months have been […]
Being someone who grew up in a Christian Church setting I heard the word “Stewardship” with a fair amount of regularity. Typically that word was connected with money, which is understandable because everyone needs it to accomplish their goals even congregations.
It wasn’t until I became a father that the word “stewardship” became more than money. Having children […]
As I venture through the journey of being a father of two young boys, I can’t help to be filled with doubts. The relationship with my father was almost non-existent and what little was there was violent, abusive and traumatic. It is sad to admit but the day he died I wasn’t sad or filled with […]
My kids and I share many things: an odd sense of humor, a fierce adherence to logic, and my rugged good looks. However, in our home, none of our shared qualities gets quite as much attention as our shared love of superheroes. As a father in my early thirties, straddling that middle ground between “Generation X” […]
When you work,
have passion for what you do,for they will see that you chose
for they will see that you chose
to pursue that which you loved.
When you see their mother,
because that’s part of being a husband,
of being a man.
When you teach them,
show a passion for reading,
for learning, and listening.
When they love to read,
they will have experiences
YOU CHANGED ME.
Since the first moment I saw you, I lost myself within your eyes,
And everytime since like an epiphany, I realise.
I want to be someone that earns your respect,
And I promise to give you everything even if it means I have nothing left.
Like a telescope, I wanted to be someone you looked up to,
And any […]

I do solemnly resolve before God to take full responsibility for myself, my wife, and my children.
I WILL love them, protect them, serve them, and teach them the Word of God as the spiritual leader of my home.
I WILL be faithful […]
One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed a ride. Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.
A young white man stopped to help her, generally unheard of […]
