Best in the World

Yesterday, Leigh-Ann and I and the girls were invited to watch the US Women’s National Soccer Team play at Sporting Field. It was an AWESOME experience. To be honest, I think it was the first time I have been to a live international sporting event to root for my country. And the USWNT did not...

Big Game

On Wednesday, I was invited to go to the opening round of the Big Twelve Tournament. Even though I don’t really have a favorite team, it was a great to spend time with friends and watch some incredible athletes. We commented often about the differences between watching a game live and watching it on TV....

When the Church Goes Flat

A few weeks ago, I was having one of those days where most things were taking longer than expected and it seemed like anything that could go wrong, did go wrong. At the end of the day, I headed out the door…with only a few minutes to spare to get home to eat with the...

God is faithful…always and forever.

The kids and I have a ritual during  our ride to school in the morning. I choose a number one through ten and then they  pick to see who gets the closest to the number. The winner gets to pray first. Then that person picks a number and we guess at it and the winner prays....

Unexpected intersections for prayer

This morning while wrapping up our Tuesday  morning Bible study at @newlifekc, we had a visitor that was unexpected to us, but totally expected by God. Since Leigh-Ann and I moved downtown, we have frequently visited the @myfamilydollar store on 31st and Troost. The employees have always been very kind and welcoming. As a result,...

New Life Sunday…reflections from a broken mirror

Today the tables were turned…maybe for the first time in my life. I had just met my parents for lunch with the kids and was back at my desk working on the sermon for Sunday, when my dad called and said, “You wouldn’t believe what I did…when I was backing out of the parking space at...

New Life Sunday – House Rules…

      Recently the girls and me…and sometimes Leigh-Ann and the boys have been playing basketball in the driveway. I must admit that I am no “King James” but I have played my share of basketball through the years. Since the girls are trying to learn the game, I have been teaching them some technique...

New Life Sunday – Untapped power

Today is the campout! Dallas has been talking about this since last October. To be real honest, I am pretty excited myself. I am mostly excited because Dallas is excited and I can’t wait to spend time with him. As a dad, I love spending time with my kids and I love it when they are...

New Life Sunday – Try to guess my topic this week…

What gets your ATTENTION? The answer to that may vary among us…however, I am going to predict that if you live near KC you would agree with this answer: A SNOWSTORM!!! Our house is situated in a location that allows for us to see a lot of traffic. For awhile yesterday it was entertaining to look out from...
