How I knew She Could Be My Bride!


Today Melissa and I celebrate eight years being married. It has certainly been an adventure together. We have had our share of joy, sorrow, laughter, heartbreak, fun, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything else on this earth. I cannot imagine what my life would be like right now if she weren’t a part of […]

The Unstoppable Gospel!

 I have been thinking about the message that was preached recently at Relate Church by Timothy Brown.  We are going through the book of Philippians and the message caused me to start thinking about Paul having joy while in the Roman prison. Paul talked about how his time in prison served as an opportunity for […]

Update: Twist and Turns

One thing that I have learned since I surrendered all to Jesus on January 11, 2002, is that following Him is an adventure! Once we take that step in being sold out to Christ and declare that our life is His completely, we can never predict the way things will turn out. Last summer we […]

Ten Observations with Sharing Your Faith

Sharing our faith can be intimidating, however it is something that Jesus clearly commanded us to do.

I remember when I was in elementary school and we would play kickball or football every day at recess! There were times when we would have two team captains who would pick teams. I have never been the most athletic person. Even to this day, I have to practice and work very hard just to […]

The Disease of Cultural Christianity

Some may think I am being melodramatic using the word disease, but I think it fits perfectly. Being sick is one thing, but having a disease is something on a whole other level. A disease is something that cannot be cured quickly and is a longer process that may require surgery or even a transplant. […]

Live Like You Are Dying!

I grew up on country music! It was a pretty big part of my life as a child. Of course one might ask if I really had a choice since I grew up in upstate South Carolina! There was a song that came out a few years back by Tim McGraw called “Live like You Were […]

Why do you go to Church?

Why do you go to church? What is your main motivation? Do you go because you have always been forced to go and it has become a habit? Is this something that your family has always done so you wonder why you should stop now? Is this a time of the week where you can […]

Good People & Sinners

Do you struggle as a Christian? Do you sometimes feel that everyone else around you seems to have it all together but you? Do you worry what people would think if they ever found out what a wreck you are inside? In a recent blog I explained some differences between Cultural Christianity and Biblical Christianity […]
