2020-03-01 Pictures: Lyndsey’s College Signing Day

This afternoon Lyndsey made it official, signing her letter of intent to play college basketball for the Hiram College Terriers starting next year. While she made the decision and committed to Hiram before Christmas, she has been looking forward to this day since her...

2020-02-13 Pictures: Lyndsey’s 18th Birthday

I am little behind on posting photos. These are some of my favorites from a couple of weekends ago when we got a chance to celebrate Lyndsey's 18th birthday. It's hard to believe that my little girl is officially an adult. It was nice to have the family all back...

What is DOCTRINE?

Introduction I love working with kids, and I love teaching them hard concepts in ways they can understand. To that end, for years I have been working on a dictionary of theological terms for kids and teens. In sharing those definitions, there seemed no better place to...

If You Want It Done Right

In all likelihood, you know how the phrase ends: If you want it done right, DO IT YOURSELF! This is a bit of a mantra for me, and frankly, something that I struggle with daily both in leadership and in my Christian walk.  In theory, this is easy to accept. ...

What Does God Hate?

This is the little and humble post that started it all. I happened to be reading through my Bible, and this passage impacted me so much that I posted a little blurb about it on Facebook. That was July 28, 2008, and I've been writing and sharing ever since. (Maybe...

Six Ways to Persevere Through the Sluggish Times in Ministry

Have you ever had one of those days?  You know the kind – where you really aren’t “in to” what you’re doing and you feel like you rather be doing just about anything else.  What do you do when those times correspond to your time in ministry. I wrote this...

A New Definition of Family

If we are going to effectively work with and understand kids today, we have to understand what a family is. Family, after all, is a defining characteristic for all us - some for the better and some for the worse. It seems like an...

Seeds Family Worship Cookbook

If you’ve read this blog for a while, it won’t come as any surprise that I am a big fan of Seeds Family Worship.  We were honored to be a stop of the release tour of their most current album, and I’ve been a fan for a while now.  Well, the guys at Seeds are “cooking up” something new and exciting, and they want to give you a chance to to get in on the action.  From now through July 31, you have a chance to submit an idea or activity for the new Seeds Family Worship Cookbook

The Cookbook will feature ideas, games, activities and lessons that you have used with your families to build Godly character at home.  These could include ways to memorize scripture (can your two year old recite the entire book of Ephesians?), ideas on worshipping as a family (maybe you’ve created a Partridge Family type worship band and tour with the kids?), family activities or outings (did you and the kids uncover the lost tomb of Lazarus?), ways you’ve tackled difficult theological questions (did you figure out a way to explain the trinity to a five year old), or anything else you’ve done to instill God and the Bible into your kids.  Seriously though, it doesn’t have to be earth shattering, if you have an idea that can help other parents, share it and let us learn from you.  The best entries, along with your name, will be published in the Seeds Family Worship Cookbook similar to a church cookbook.  If you have more than one idea, make sure you submit them all.

Remember, you only have until July 31 to get your entries in.  One thing that you can be certain of, everything that Seeds does is top notched in terms of quality and integrity.  Click on Seeds Family Worship Cookbook to submit your entry.  Oh, while there you should buy a CD or two – you won’t regret it!
