Disconnect to Connect


In 2007 the first iPhone was introduced. Now, a little more than 10 years later, everyone has an iPhone. Or maybe an Android if you’re not at Apple fan.

My Mom Rocks: A Mother’s Day Tribute

Happy Mother’s Day!

As a parent of kids who play youth sports I’m always interested in learning how to be a better parent of kids who play youth sports. Know what I mean?

I learned pretty early on as my son got into playing baseball what kind of dad I didn’t want to be. I didn’t want…

Happy Anniversary!

Today, we celebrate 17 years since we first said, “I do.”

I am blessed beyond measure to be married to Alisha.  Our story to date has been filled with highs & lows, twists & turns, but through it all one thing remains the same: there’s no one else I’d rather be on this journey…

Matheny Manifesto

Favorite Quotes from “The Matheny Manifesto”

It’s that time again.  Baseball is in the air!  MLB Opening is an unofficial American holiday.  Who’s excited?

I’ll confess, I haven’t been a baseball fan for that long.  It’s only been a recent passion of mine.  I didn’t really get into baseball until my son was born.  And it seemed like he was…

There’s no doubt about it, God has given parents the primary role & responsibility in leading our kids to Jesus.  It’s not something we can outsource, hope they figure out some other way or ignore.  Should we…
