Repent and Go

A bit of self-disclosure: if I had grown up during the nineties or later, I would likely have been diagnosed with ADD and probably be on the Asperger’s spectrum, or as my wife affectionately calls me, “a bit Aspy”. To this day, I still find it difficult to concentrate on things I’m not interested in (work, taxes, emotions), and find it hard to not block everything and everyone out when I am interested in something (theology, history, science).

Could, Would, Should

Education and Parenting through COVID-19: Navigating the Coulds, Woulds and Shoulds.

Yes I Will

Sometimes I don’t want to do the things I want to do. Do you ever feel like that?

I want to stick to a schedule during social distancing. I want to be patient with my family. I want to gently lead them into prayer, worship and activities that will help everyone keep the right attitude. I want to serve God and put other people first. I want to serve Him even when it is hard. But sometimes I don’t want to do what I want to do.

Devotions Are An Act of War

What are devotions? 

Just a term that Christians useto talk about prayer, Bible study and often also singing worship songs. They can be done on your own or with a very small group.

Why are they an act of war?
