"Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman

I have been waiting and waiting for the last 2 weeks for a good opportunity to post this song. My buddy Clay gave me one tonight. You see, tonight at 6:30, Clay and his wife Christine entered a whole new dimension. They welcomed a little daughter into this world. This isn’t their first child, but it is their first little girl. Now it starts. Now songs like this one from Steven Curtis Chapman take on a whole new meaning. Congratulations Clay and Christine. Get your dancin’ shoes on. Here’s your long distance dedication! “Cinderella” by Steven Curtis Chapman from the … Continue reading "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman

A Call to Prayer

Many of you have been following the journey of my friend Stef the past few months either through his blog, AC180, my blog or all three. If you are not familiar with Stef, he is an amazing man of God, Christian brother, husband, father and friend. About 6 months ago, God gave me the blessing of connecting our paths and I am a better person today because of that divine moment. If you would like to know more about Stef, his journey and his family, he has been sharing it through his blog. Today, I want to make a public … Continue reading A Call to Prayer

It’s October 19th, in Ohio and 70 degrees outside…in Ohio! Big weekend for the scrapbooking community at our church. The special guest speaker is none other than my sister! I’m not proud of her or anything. Big weekend in our household too. My wife is running in the Columbus Marathon on Sunday. Keep her in your prayers as she completes the race she feels God has called her to run. I’ll be walking a whopping 1/2 mile to catch the beginning, middle and end. With apologies to Justin Timberlake, “I’m Bringin’ Lazy Back”! For you Indians fans out there, there’s … Continue reading Random Friday

The Warrior is a Child

I spoke with a dear friend this evening that is facing a storm. Through his journey, others have found strength and seen a faith that inspires believers and those that don’t know Christ. He is a warrior in every sense of the word. But even warriors need a place and a time to rest a bit. When I was growing up, our home had a front porch with a swing on it. It was a place of rest. I had friends in high school that would come over and just hang out on the front porch. More then once, I … Continue reading The Warrior is a Child

I’m posting the two videos below as follow up from our small group discussion tonight. As you can tell by the videos, the conversation was far ranging. Even if you’re not in our small group (you’re always welcomed to join), both videos are worth checking out. The first video came from my time of telling “my story”. Since it was my turn this week, I referenced this video from Brandon Heath for the song “I’m Not Who I was”. It’s just not the same without the video. By the grace of God, I’m not who I was. The second video … Continue reading Additional Resources
