That sinking feeling…

We have all had that moment...the moment where our kid asks us a question we weren't expecting and are difficult to answer. They may be a question that is embarrassing (like Sex or sex related topics), they could be deep questions (like why is there evil in the world), or they could be topics you... Continue Reading →

Being Wrong

So I just got back from a Student Ministry conference in Tennessee. This is either our 10th or 11th year going to Conclave. It is always a great time of refreshing and learning for me. My mom usually comes down to Alabama from South Carolina and hangs out with the boys while my wife and... Continue Reading →

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.

I usually give a variety of suggestions, but most of the suggestions are devotionals that you have to go out and buy. Let's be honest, I know that anytime I tell people that they...

Know the Culture

I remember Dr. Brad Reynolds, my student ministry professor at SEBTS, telling our class that we needed to recognize, study, and understand the different cultures of the towns and regions of the churches that we served.
