Solid Rock or Stumbling Block

Have you ever said something in your passion that just totally came out wrong? In your head the thought felt supportive and brilliant but somehow when it was released into the world it was completely different. I bet that’s how Peter felt in Matthew 16:22 when he said, “never Lord! This shall never happen to [...]

This Famous Artist Was Willing To Play For An Audience Of One

On November 23rd 2014 Fredrik Wikingsson walked into the Philadelphia Academy of music and took a seat in the second row. As the lights in the theater dimmed his calves pulsed up and down pushing his heels off of the carpet adding a bounce to his knees. He was still wondering if he was part [...]

The Nots At The End Of Our Rope: #4 Not Now

I’m going to confess something to you that I don’t like about myself. I have a tendency to put things off. I’m not sure if it’s a power struggle or a laziness issue but if someone asks or tells me that they need something I almost always say, “O.k. I can get that to [...]

The Nots At The End Of Our Rope: #2 Not Qualified

The Nots At The End Of Our Rope

Puns are considered the lowest form of humor. You may call me a Cretan but I like them. They make me laugh. They make me groan. Sometimes they make a point. If you ride the waves of the Internet you’ll find that Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Roosevelt, Benjamin Franklin, and even Abraham Lincoln [...]

Why Taking Your Child’s Phone May Be One Of The Best Things You Ever Do

My son had his phone taken away for the last four weeks and it was awesome! I won't get into the details of why we took the phone. We all parent differently and the reason has nothing to do with this post. If you know him, please don't ask him about it or mention it. [...]
