  • COLUMN: And baby makes five ...

    When my daughter was very young, I once told her that when she had children, I hoped she had a dozen because she would drive one or two insane.
    It was not one of my finer moments but I think she has forgiven me and perhaps even understands how I was feeling at the time.
    Amanda, by the age of 3, had spoken probably twice as many words as I had as an adult. And twice as fast. She was incredibly organized, had way too much energy and wise beyond her years.

  • COLUMN: Thank you Dads, for all you've given

    My husband and my dad are polar opposites.

    Dad is a sun up to sun down worker and Shane is what I call a “nine-to-fiver.” Dad’s hands are rough from manual labor; Shane’s are soft from washing dishes. Dad’s advice is short and sweet while Shane’s never ends. Despite every difference you can think of, the two share a common factor. They are both fathers, excellent fathers, who deserve more recognition than I can give.

  • COLUMN: Throw off the old and put on the new

    God intends that we grow spiritually. He gave us his saving grace to get us started in the Christian life but he gives us his daily grace to help us in our Christian walk and our spiritual growth. God desires that our lives be changed and that we grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior (II Peter 3:18).

    How do we grow spiritually? For some insights, read Ephesians 4:22-24. Paul says there is a two-step process in our Christian growth … throw off the old and put on the new. That is simple but yet powerful.
