Embrace Your Failings

October 5, 2012

Today I was reading from Paul in Ephesians. Paul. The man who wrote more of the bible than any other. 2/3 of the New Testament came from his hand. The original missionary. A man that was saved by God’s grace in an awesome way. This guy had been killing and persecuting Christians and ended up […]

If you don’t know what has been going on with Chick-Fil-A in the last couple weeks, first crawl out from under your rock, second open a new window and google it, thirdly come back here and read the rest of this post. Today is Chick-Fil-A appreciation day. I am in a weird place of torn right […]


Obamacare: My Christian Perspective

June 28, 2012

A couple of hours ago the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. Since then, my twitter and Facebook feeds have exploded with comments about it. Because of who I follow, most of it has been anger or disgust toward the decision. I understand that. I personally think it should not be our nations policy. But I want […]

I wonder if God looks at me the same way I look at little Arlis? My son is 4 months old now and growing like crazy. He is the coolest kid in the world. Obviously he still needs Sarah or I for everything. To eat, sleep, and clean his butt…..we are his humble servants. At […]


Quit Complaining

March 21, 2012

When I write my blogs, they are usually aimed directly at me, and something that I am trying fix or work on in my own life. Today is the same thing. Earlier today I got in a discussion on Google+ about the police. Someone left a status that stated “Dialing 911 ensures the police arrive […]

I was listening to a podcast this morning and they were talking about an actor that tried to commit suicide this past week. He shot himself in the head, but thankfully had survived. I hope and pray that this is a wake up call to him that life is really worth living, if he makes […]


Inspiration Perspiration

February 29, 2012

I was listening to an interview with an arena football player Ahmad Carroll. They were talking about Tim Tebow. That guy is the most polarizing sports figure I have ever seen. Personally, I love what the guy stands for…..but I am a Dallas Cowboys fan, so I can’t really like his football skills. Haha. Anyways, […]


Living the 6

February 28, 2012

So I am a dad. I haven’t written a blog about little Arlis yet. Just didn’t have the right words to say that would represent what it feels like. He was born on December 6th, 2011 and my life has not looked the same since. There are tons of phrases that come to mind like: […]

Life Changes

September 23, 2011

This blog is a view into my life right now. I know it may seem self serving, but I feel like it is something that everyone in ministry goes through. If you haven’t yet, you very well could face some of these same issues. I hope that you realize how important your life is to […]


Doing What You Want = Fail

June 24, 2011

My life has changed so drastically in the last 3 years. 3 years ago I was a youth pastor in Miami Florida. I loved my job, and it was what I thought I would do for many years. Around that time, God started speaking to me about taking Bike For The Light national. That is […]
