Evergreen

The Deep South is just emerging from an unusual deep freeze, and it’s been bitterly cold here in Atlanta for several weeks. Of course, I realize that when southerners talk about night time temperatures in the teens and daytime highs reaching the low thirties, many from more northern climates are understandably apt to snicker and […]

My Plan Or Yours?

12 hours. 650 miles. That’s roughly the duration of and distance traveled for our recent trip north to and from visiting relatives for the holidays. While compared to some, it’s not necessarily an inordinately long excursion, but it was sufficient for our family to have many conversations while on the road… one of which centered […]

Redeeming the Ideas of Headship and Submission

Some of the fiercest conversations we’ve ever had have started with questions about headship, submission, and roles. You probably agree that biblical manhood and womanhood are among the most common and culturally confusing topics within marriage today. Wives struggle with what it means to submit while husbands wrestle with what it means to express loving headship like Jesus. All of the pain, confusion, and frustration…

The “Kairos” of Christmas

If you have ever organised or coordinated a nativity play you know what I am talking about. I worked as a Sunday school teacher for nearly 4 years and we used to put nativity play every year with small kids. I am telling you it’s not one of the easiest job in the world. It is very frustrating at times because we cannot have all the kids playing their part in correct timing.

First Things First

Have you heard a reading of the Christmas story yet this year? Maybe seen a dramatization on TV or in a children’s Christmas pageant?

Nothing But Rain

This past Friday the Atlanta area got an early December surprise, SNOWFALL! I realize that people in more northern climates are used to frequent snow so it doesn’t make the headlines like it does down south.  But in our area, where it’s not unusual to have several years with no frozen precipitation at all, a […]

Maintenance Needed!

This year Clif and I discovered an important truth about artificial Christmas trees. Pre-lit trees only stay pre-lit for one year! After that, depending on how you store the tree, you can expect hours of frustration and endless headaches troubleshooting the lights on your ‘convenient and easy to assemble’ Christmas decoration. That was our predicament […]

Crafting a Family Vision Statement: What It Is and Why You Need One

Few things have been as impactful in our lives and marriage as our family vision. Years back when we felt aimless and flustered, we took the time to have in-depth discussions about what matters most to us: as Christians, as a family, and as a couple. The result was our family vision statement, which has helped us immensely since. Listen to today’s episode as we…
