9 Ways Babies Will Make You Question Everything

9 Ways Babies Will Make You Question Everything

Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.

Elizabeth Stone

Being a dad of 4 awesome kids is one of the best things in my life while at the same time one of the most stressful. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. But, I do wish I was a little more prepared.

Let me give you a few things that I have learned that may help you.


Start buying diapers the day after you find out you’re pregnant.
Seriously. Babies go through diapers and wipes like a fat man goes through Oreos. Also, buy size 1 and 2, don’t buy a ton of newborn size. Pro tip: SAM’s Club usually has really good deals.

We can relax now, the Comforter is here. He’s here and He’s not leaving.

In John 14, we see Jesus is preemptively comforting his disciples. Then we read in Luke 24, where He reminds them that He will make good on His promise when He ascends.

Learn From a Loser How To Win At Marriage

Learn From a Former Loser How To Win At Marriage

“There is no more lovely, friendly or charming relationship, communion or company, than that of a good marriage.”
Martin Luther

Following up on last week’s post about marriage, I have some more thoughts.

Anna and I have learned a lot in our 21+ years of dating/marriage. Most of what we’ve learned has been the hard way. Still, I fail at something every single day but I’m trying to get better. I hope that what I’ve learned and am continuing to learn will help someone. I’m just a former loser, who’s learning, trying to show others how to win.

You don’t have to be on the same line. Just make sure you’re both in the same book and same page.

How Guarantees Once Saved the World

Our faith in Jesus transfers God’s righteousness to us and he now declares us flawless in his eyes. This means we can now enjoy true and lasting peace with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has done for us. Our faith guarantees us access into this marvelous kindness that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory!

Romans 5:1-3, Passion Translation

We have a wellspring of joy that finds it’s source in God’s glory! The hope of this glory is the simple belief that Jesus is our guarantee!

What I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before Marriage

I am so thankful for my marriage. Is it easy? No. Is it fun? Sometimes. Is it worth it? Absolutely!

As of this writing, Anna and I have been married for over 11 years. We dated for about 10 years before that. With all that time we’ve spent together, I would have thought we’d know each other better. Marriage is a journey. Marriage is a quest to know each other better.

Here a few things that I wish I had known before I got married. Maybe they’ll help you now and in the future.

How to Get Your Heart to Say Yes to Christ

How to Get Your Heart to Say Yes to Christ

God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on petrol, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself.
C. S. Lewis

Mr. Lewis puts a profound truth so simply. Hearts are engines that drive the human machine.

We are designed to live completely dependent, fully satisfied if you will, on Christ alone!

How To Excel At Loving What You Do

You are not defined by what you do, but you are defined by how you do it.

Scott Silcox

When I heard this statement I was both shocked and encouraged. Shocked, because I was forced to examine how I do things that I like and dislike. Encouraged, because I had room to grow.
