As a Christian father, I realize that I have the opportunity to impact and influence the lives of generations to follow through the life that I live and the instructions that I give. In the book of Proverbs, Solomon used the phrase, “my son,” twenty-three times. It was absolutely clear to him that he had … Read More

There is one thing about life that everyone can agree on: our days on this earth are limited. From the activities that we enjoy to the events that we are involved in, they are all bound by the limits of time. However, just as each of us are constrained by the limited time that we … Read More

One Tuesday afternoon our family was running errands as was the norm in the days that our kids were in elementary school.  After completing an afternoon of errands, we usually ate out.  That was a treat for all of us, especially me, since I’m the cook in the family.  This particular night my husband says, … Read More

The psalmist declared in Psalm 119:105, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”  One of the synonyms for God’s Word is “light” in the Scriptures.  Light dispels darkness.  Light reveals what is ahead.  Light directs our steps.
