Dear Responsible Momma,

  How does a high responsibility Mom take care of 5 boys who have little interest in responsibility?     #1: She goes crazy. She spends her every step trying to command them in “duties”—wash your hands, take off your shoes, put away your toys, make your bed, brush your teeth, stay on task! Thus,… Read more »

Lazy Parenting

We’ve all heard it.   “Do as I say, not as I do.”   What does “Do as I say not as I do” imply? It implies.. quite bluntly… you are a lazy parent. Telling your child to “do as you say and not as you do” is a cop-out of all cop outs. You… Read more »

  • passions

    What are your passions? What drives you? What do you wish you could do all day?

  • Lull of Life

    Recently my son Roman was having one of his fussy spells around midnight one evening, nothing Les or I could do would calm him, we walked around, bounced him (like you do with a baby), “shhhhhed” him… his diaper was clean, his tummy was full and it was 76 degrees in the house – what… Read more »

  • lessons

    What’s the point… when all is stripped away, when the money I work so hard to make is gone, when the people I try to impress have passed on or away… when the work I have sweat over is out-dated… If I have not Christ. When all of this is gone – what is left?… Read more »

  • Worship.

      I’ve had a couple of people ask me for the questions from today’s service that I asked… here they be. I often lose focus of what an amazing privilege it is to sing praises to God. And to worship him in Song, this week I convicted on many levels of what Worshiping is, in… Read more »

  • eternal perspective

    I find peace in the eternal perspective displayed by Jesus, maybe not as often as I should… given there are a lot of times that there is an immediate need, and we should reach out, pour out, fill up, etc…but most often it is an eternal perspective that will over shadow the irrelevance of the… Read more »
