So now I am giving you a new commandment: Love each other. Just as I have loved you, you should love each other.    Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.”  (John 13:34, 35 NLT) Continue reading

More Than A Song – WK 3

Hopefully the last 2 weeks have been useful to you. Here goes wk 3. Read WK 1 or WK 2

Chapter 4 – The Little Things

You remember that song by Bush from back in the 90s? Probably not, cause you were good little Christians who didn’t listen to “secular” music. Me, as I said was a pastors kid, so I listened to lots of “devil” music.

More Than A Song – WK 1

So as it is my Spiritual Birthday today, I decided that today would be a great day to start something new. A little while back, in a rough patch of life, Jesus had me come out of it by writing something. So I started a book. As a worship leader, it is a good reminder to me on where I need to lead from. So I have decided to share my very little book in chapters to my blog. I may make some major edits to it and try to self publish it at some point. But let’s be real. I’m a blogger so this is where I will start. So here you go. Chapters 1 & 2 of More Than A Song: Living a Life of Worship. Subsequent chapters will come out each week on Thursdays. Enjoy.

Welcome to North Carolina

So I have been planning on writing something for quite a while and haven’t. I still don’t really know what to write quite yet but I am going to go ahead and get started. I just re-read a draft of a blog that I wrote back in December before the end of things with Quest. It’s long and direct and I never convinced myself to post it. Still probably won’t. But I’m not sure. Don’t think it is worth people reading anymore.

But anyway, things are very different now and also nothing has changed. You  would think that a major move to a new state would be much more full of change than it has been. But things aren’t really that different. I’ll do my best to explain. Continue reading

So for the last 3-4 months, Shal and I have been in a interesting process. One that was unexpected and has taken several different paths and twist and turns. It’s been exciting and tiring all at the same time. Invigorating and frustrating.

Doc McStuffins – Words to Live By

So as the dad of an almost 3 year old little girl. I watch a lot of random kid shows. Being the dad of a little mixed girl, we love Doc McStuffins. My daughter has several Doc toys and went as her for halloween. Actually, our little family resembles the McStuffins in a lot of ways. Mom is a Doctor (Shal a nurse), Dad stays home with the kids (duh…) older sister with a little brother. My daughter doesn’t actually talk to her toys but she might as well be. Her imaginations is crazy.

Anyway, you may be asking yourself why I am writing about a children’s show on the Disney channel. It turns out that lots of the lessons they teach on the show are actually great. And there is one little song in particular that has been in my head for the last couple weeks. Enjoy then I will continue…

Who Am I?

So I got a pretty intriguing response to my last blog. Turns out it struck a chord with a lot of people. I seem to have put something into words that others were having trouble articulating and clarifying in their own head. As such, I have been informed that I need to write a follow up. Where do I stand about a month later? So that’s what you have stumbled into today.

So as a recap, the major point I was posing is that I am having to rediscover who I am apart from other outside forces that have imposed their will on my life over the last 7ish years. If you need a refresher, READ IT HERE.
