OK God, What Am I Here For?

Regardless of your race, gender, age, location, personality, occupation, NCAA allegiance, or any other defining factor, all Christians have one thing in common. We want to know why God put us on this Earth. Of course the short and always right answer would be to spread His Word and help others. That above all else is why and what we…

Preparing for Battle

I admit I’m a little late, but I finally saw War Room for the first time last night. It was a really good movie, not just for the message but surprisingly for the acting and story too. I was proud of my girl Priscilla Shirer, who was as every bit funny and she is when preaching and teaching. I have seen…

Super Tuesday: WWJV

It’s Super Tuesday and many people feel a little let down by the choices set before them. Many of us are left scratching our heads, asking, “Who would Jesus vote for?” I prayerfully debated between two choices before going to the polls this morning. Both are Christian men, who I feel would make a great president if elected. (Actually the…

A Parenting Prayer on My Son’s Third Birthday

Lord, help me to see as my son turns three, Just how important his life is to me. Not just the milestones and occasions of note, But also those times when he frustrates me most. Though his fits and fights cause us much stress, His hugs and giggles make us most blessed. Potty training and mealtimes seem like such struggles.…

Finding Fulfillment in Life

I can honestly say I’m at one of the happiest times in my life, and it has nothing to do with what’s going on around me. Sure, I’m about to have my second child to complete our family, my stand-up and writing careers are getting recognition, and I have a great support system of family and friends. But I give…

America’s Fading Glory

At a time when we all should celebrate our independence and enjoy the freedoms of living in America, my mind is filled with fear. I have not felt such a fear for our nation since my Freshman year in college when 9/11 hit our country. The difference is that terrorists attacked 14 years ago, and though there is a threat…
