I recently read this article in which Arian Foster, an NFL star for the Texans, shares 6 things he hopes to teach his daughter. It was refreshing to read that a millionaire had his daughter do chores to earn something she wanted. He also shares how he hopes she is kind, and motivated by her passions … More “The Flying Spaghetti Monster”
Throughout Father’s Day, a scene from the movie Courageous kept playing through my head. It’s the part where one of the dads admits he thought he was doing good enough as a dad because he was doing better than his father, and he says, “I don’t want to just be good enough.” Have you ever … More Better than “Good Enough”
That’s what my boys call them- “Mommy’s Track Girls.” Sometimes opportunities arise just when they are needed, and sometimes the people you need are there at just the right time. As I type on the eve of the last day of the 2013 state meet and I look back on a season that saw only … More Mommy’s Track Girls
“My GRACE is sufficient for you, for my power is made PERFECT in weakness.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 Weakness, more like helpless. That was the feeling I had when my dad was in coma.

What is one thing that would symbolize you- your qualities, your spirit, your personality? Can you think of one? I can’t.

When you picture heaven, what do you see? Golden gates? Rainbows? Angels? After January 16, 2013, I envision it looks like this: In the few short weeks since my Dad has passed away, my boys and I have had several conversations of Heaven and Jesus. My boys are 5 and 2. They were so fortunate … More Does Jesus Like Pickles?
This past Saturday, 1/19/13, we celebrated the life of my dad. It was truly an amazing service. There were a thousand faces that came to say goodbye to him at his wake, and then a packed church on Saturday. What an incredible guy!

I had a dream last night that dad was playing golf with Jesus. When I woke up, I told Jesus that dad could only play 18 holes and that he had to come home when he was done. Dad is a strong man. He’s healthy, determined, and as someone wrote to him, a stubborn SOB … More On hole 18
