"Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us." (1Peter 2:11-12)

It is normal to get caught up in a heated discussion or meeting, maybe even lose your temper and say something you regret. The challenge is to be different by keeping your cool and appraising the whole situation before making a comment. Through a level-headed approach a practical solution will become clear and in obedience you will honor the Father.

It is the new normal to be sexually promiscuous in these times of seemingly constant titillation through popular clothing fashions and all forms of media. The standard is ...read on

What’s a cyber? If that is your first question, I hear you! And that is at the core of the issue – kids today are typically well ahead of us dads and moms in the use of technology. To the extent that when we attempt to control their use of technology or exposure to social media, we are met with pushback, frustration and even anger.

As parents, it is critical to establish a personal comfort factor with the technology kids are exposed to today. read on ...

In his book “Choose the Life”, Bill Hull puts forth a challenge for Christ-likeness in this world. The call is to believe what Christ believed, live as Jesus lived, love as Jesus loved, serve as Jesus served and lead as Jesus led. It is a call for transformation!

In his book “Deep & Wide – Creating Churches Unchurched People Love to Attend”, Andy Stanley speaks of the five pillars on which he and his team built a church. The pillars are what he calls the five faith catalysts that all on the Christian walk have experienced to some degree. The book explains how a church can be built to nurture the respective catalysts and empower the congregation to be the Church.

As dads, and as priests in your homes, these catalysts should be nurtured in family as well to empower the next generation to walk boldly in the Truth. Being the Church in family will Create Generational Kingdom Builders. read on ...

Are you like me, still wondering what in the world happened to September and October? In fact the world happened! The busy-ness of the world distracted me as the months zipped right by. Now I am in danger of being distracted from the REASON for the season.

The Word on the REASON is: “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.” – Luke 2:10-11.

  • This Christmas focus on the greatest gift of all - read on ...

To borrow a quote from Stephen Covey, “Begin with the end in mind.” Here is a great example to reference – a 23 year old that gets it:

The headline read, “Miss World – Gorgeous Enough to Speak Hard Truths.” Crowned Miss Philippines 2013, Miss Megan Young was crowned Miss World 2013, despite her strong conservative beliefs. Speaking to television network ANC, she told the host: “I’m pro-life. …I am against abortion.”
ANC Host: What about contraception?
Young: “Well, I don’t engage in stuff like that as of now. I think that sex is for marriage.”  Read on...

In the 1945 movie, “Bells of St. Mary’s” Bing Crosby played a Jesuit priest overseeing a Catholic school. When bullying occurred as it does among boys, Sister Benedict provided boxing lessons for the boy being bullied. The confidence boost for the young man equipped him to stand firm against the bully upon the next encounter. Through their battle the boys grew up a bit and established a mutual respect for each other, for their teacher and for the school. Read more...

Voucher systems that equip some students to go to private schools when their public school is failing to meet key education parameters have documented impressive results in Washington D.C., Louisiana and elsewhere. In other areas, Charter schools have been created as a function of school districts thinking outside the box to create a more dynamic learning environment.

The A-Rod saga ramped up when he got hit by a pitch in a game against the Red Sox. His mangager, Joe Girardi in turn lost his composure and got thrown out of the game. It’s no better for the boys of winter - Von Miller is looking at suspension due to violating the NFL’s drug policy and there are numerous cheap hits and swinging helmet incidents under review by the NFL after just the second week of the preseason! Is this what healthy competition on a playing field where rules of the game are to be enforced consistently has become? It seems that players and coaches today respond to pressure with a focus on self instead of with respect for something bigger than themselves– in these cases, the GAME.
A better story - read on...
