Moved to Compassion

Acts of Compassion

Have you ever done something that ordinarily you wouldn’t do, but you did it anyway because of compassion?

My guess is that every parent in the room has experienced this phenomenon.

Under ordinary circumstances, none of us when we were in our 20’s would willing take an infant that had just dropped 5…


Moved to SEE


This past week I was reminded of the story of Gene Purdie.

He suffers from Stargardt’s disease. It’s a disease that affects the retina & makes it to where you can only see faint outlines of the image in front of you.

Because of his condition, he’s blind. He’s never seen his…


Moved to Pray

Original Intent

When what is intended as one thing becomes a different thing we have to ask ourselves if it’s the right thing.

I was reminded of this recently when I was driving to Omaha, Nebraska with my wife & son.

My son’s baseball team was playing in a big tournament so we were on the…

purpose driven life

What is your purpose?

What are you doing here?

A few years ago our family headed out on Sunday night to go to a friend’s house for Small Group.

We got to their house, walked in & started talking to our friends. Everyone was enjoying coffee & refreshments. Then Alisha & I remembered that we had forgotten something back…

The Case of the Missing Kit-Kat

Hunter Jobbins was a freshman at Kansas State University. One day last spring he drove up to his dorm & parked his car out front. He was just going to run inside to grab something & come right back out. So he left his car unlocked.

Life with the Holy Spirit


I have a propensity to get lost. I am, & I admit this freely & without hesitation, terrible with directions. It is not uncommon for me to get lost or miss a turn. In fact, it’s almost a daily experience for me.

Hey, we can’t all be good at everything!

One way I try to…

stop look love the person God has put in front of you

Stop. Look. Love.

Stop. Look. Love.

If you hang around long enough, you’ll hear me talk about my kids. Not because my kids are perfect. I assure you, they are not. And it’s not because Alisha & I are the perfect parents. I assure you, I am not!

Alisha & I have a son & two daughters. Our…

It’s Your Birthday

A True Difference Maker

My Uncle Wayne once preached a sermon he entitled, “It’s Your Birthday.”

He was not a preacher. But he was a difference maker.

From time to time he was asked to preach at the church he attended in Columbus, GA. I have two of his sermons recorded and I listen to them…

lord reign in me

Lord, reign over me.

Let it go

Every parent in the room knows this feeling, that moment when one of your kids hands you all their stuff so they can run off & play. Then another one of your kids asks you to hold something else & you literally can’t. You can’t hold another thing because your hands…
