Being POTS

Part of the reason I started this blog was to write about the adventure that is parenting teenagers. Being a student pastor I have a unique perspective on this, but I don't have first hand knowledge of raising teens as my boys are 8 and almost 4. We understand that parents are in uncharted territory... Continue Reading →

The Other Side

Most of us know the golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. It's an easy enough concept to understand, but it really is tough to treat people the way that God wants us to treat them sometimes. That's a struggle that I know others have, and so do I. Have you... Continue Reading →

18 Years Ago

So today is just another day in the Barrineau house. We got up, ate breakfast, and got some chores done around the house. I went to the grocery store for the next week and we cooked some lunch when I got home so that we could eat and watch the Clemson football game. Then I... Continue Reading →

Where were you?

This morning I am sitting in my recliner drinking a cup of coffee while I am reading my devotion and getting some bible study time in before my boys wake up. This morning is like 1000 other mornings I have had in my life except for one thing, it's September 11th. I still remember what... Continue Reading →

Now, I'm not here to debate the political side of having Kaep as the face of your ad, but rather I want to... Continue Reading →

I've have parents who were not able to be there ask me about what I taught so I decided... Continue Reading →

​Chris Pratt and Gen Z

So I woke up on Tuesday morning to videos of Chris Pratt's acceptance speech for his Generation award at the MTV Movie Awards. I was expecting funny quips with some nuggets of wisdom woven in, but I was greeted by so much more. I was immediately taken back to my high school graduation and "Don't... Continue Reading →

Three Little Letters

There are 2 different groups of people that read my blog: those that know me from my current context at FBC Enterprise and friends and family from other locales. For those that aren't from Enterprise, I want to take just a few lines to explain what that context is. Here in Enterprise, we have Fort... Continue Reading →

Why I don’t like running

Today, I wanted to take some time to discuss a personal journey that I am on and to talk about something that I have very strong feelings about. I don't like running. I mean, I really don't like running. I would rather lift the weight of the world than run. This is odd since I... Continue Reading →
