In Houston, Texas, Center Point Energy has been under fire as over 2.5 million homes in the greater Houston area lost electricity during Hurricane Beryl. As we entered the four-day mark there were still over a million homes without power. The connection to the power source was interrupted as severe weather downed powerlines.

This is in contrast to the challenges faced in ...read on

As is often the case when an area is struck by a bad storm, whole neighborhoods may be out of power. When the lights go out, one realizes how much ready access to electricity can be taken for granted. Air-conditioning and refrigeration are a couple of niceties that can fall victim to a power outage. Those prepared may have full generator back-up or at least some generator capacity to keep the refrigerator going.

Of course we are never completely out of power. As is also often the case ...read on

Freedom with no boundaries is chaos. Freedom under governmental law and order is dependent upon respect for others and for civilization. Freedom under faith is driven by love – love of God, love of country and love of others.

As we celebrate our nation’s 248th birthday, it is encouraging to reflect on ...read on

I pray you are putting a great wrap on this Father’s Day month. I have been blessed to spend a good chunk of it in the mountains of Colorado on Faithful Fathering’s father-daughter hiking trip and the father-son backpacking trip. When dads commit time to young-adult children and they mutually take on such a physical challenge, God shows up.

It is a challenge for dads to stay engaged with young-adult children, ages 14-25. The key to staying engaged without being intrusive is ...read on

An annual tribute to the dad that raised me in hope that it is an encouragement to you:
Born in 1917, four years after his parents immigrated from the south of Russia, he spent his early years growing up in Nebraska. The family continued to speak Russian in the home so when it came time to go to school, the young boy was held back a year until he could learn English. Railroad work took his family to Missouri where he proved to be a good worker and strong athlete through school. He joined his dad working in the roundhouse at the railyard until the attack on Pearl Harbor changed the direction of his life. He enlisted ...read on

As you might expect, June is my favorite month of the year because it is Father’s Day month. Across this month, I want to issue this reminder for all men - dads, adoptive dads and spiritual fathers, as to how important a father is. Our Heavenly Father shares the moniker ‘father’ with us because He expects us to represent Him well in family. The charge is to embrace this high calling and honor Him. Commit this day to step forward and accept the charge.
THIS FATHER’S DAY, June 16th, 2024, I accept the ...read on

Last month I encouraged all to honor moms and treat them special across Mother’s Day month. This month, the call is out for dads to enjoy the blessings of being a dad or spiritual father to the full. What an honor it is that the Heavenly Father would share the moniker ‘father’ with us earthly dads. Wow! The associated responsibility can be overwhelming.

What should Father’s Day month look like? Start with ...read on

Identity clarity is knowing who you are, what family you belong to and, as a Christian, Whose you are. Trauma early in life can throw confusion into the understanding of one’s identity. A physically abusive home may be the first thing that comes to mind but kids can incur trauma in dysfunctional and single parent homes as well. Adoptees often suffer trauma from the get-go with the loss of their mother’s loving voice and touch.

As we head into my favorite month of the year, Father’s Day month, this is an encouragement for dads to ...read on

What is your relationship with social media? The good news is that there is a lot of information available at your fingertips. The bad news is that there is a lot of information available at your fingertips.

Were you in the room when your bride gave birth to your child(ren)? Our first born entered this world in distress because she had gotten wrapped up in the umbilical cord. After a long pregnancy and several hours in delivery, there was a new level of concern as to whether the baby was going to be okay. She was fine but it was like God was telling us to never take His miracle of child-birth, and the opportunity to be a mom and a dad, for granted.

On Mother’s Day the tendency is to put the focus on our moms, and rightly so. But as dads, it is very important to ...read on
