As the Supreme Court wraps up the 2021-2022 term, eyes have been opened to what we have to celebrate on Independence Day, a core document that conveys the beliefs we aspire to as a nation and outlines the structure of government that provides necessary checks and balances. It has been said that the Declaration of Independence, was the promise made on July 4, 1776, and The Constitution of these United States was the fulfillment of that promise.

The Constitution has provided the foundation for the American experiment. In the aftermath of ...read on

As you might expect, June is my favorite month of the year because it is Father’s Day month. So even though this blog is being posted a few days after Father's Day, 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 19th, 2022, I accept the charge as a faithful father to move forward with a renewed mind, grounded in scripture and the three tenants of Faithful Fathering. I will: ...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 in the Navy, completed flight school at Pensacola, Florida, and earned ...read on

As we move into my favorite month of the year, Father’s Day month, I encourage you to look back and look in the mirror. Faithful Fathering’s study, A Dad’s Armor, opens with a look back at the heritage you have in relationship with your earthly father, how involved and engaged he was in your life, and what kind of role model he was. A look in the mirror is to evaluate your own involvement, engagement and spiritual leadership in family.

On the whole, the fact that ‘pride month’ has encroached upon Father’s Day month, suggests that dads ...read on

It was over fifty-two years ago, the crew of Apollo 13 radioed the infamous words to Mission Control, “Houston, we have a problem.” Mission Control provided the leadership and support needed to work with the crew to develop a solution to the problem. Calm minds orchestrated the successful splashdown in the South Pacific on April 17, 1970.

Today, we the United States, have a problem. Young men, whether in Uvalde, Texas, Buffalo, New York or Chicago, Illinois, are ...read on

Whose purpose are we to be filled with? In his fabulous book, Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren opens with the statement, “It is not about you.” If it is not about us, who is it about? What purpose are we to be driven by? What purpose can man identify with?

Arguably, there are three identities that drive a man’s purpose: First, is an identity in ...read on

One’s foundation of worldview is based on a collection of attitudes, values, stories and expectations about the world around us, which inform our every thought and action. While the home environment impresses a worldview on the young mind, adults have to take responsibility for how they choose to view the world.

Arguably, there are two primary worldviews ...read on

Who do you turn to in times of trial? There has been no shortage of trials the past couple of years. Corporations, private businesses, churches and individuals, all faced the various phases of Covid challenges. Understandably, many turned to the government for guidance, mandates, loans and stimulus payments. Who else was there to turn to?

An annual tribute to my mother and an encouragement to you:
She was an incredible woman. Born in 1921, she aspired to be a vocal performer. As a senior in high school, she contracted tuberculosis. Her dream to perform was no longer possible and the vocal scholarship to attend college was rescinded. She married a handsome Navy pilot just before he was deployed to the South Pacific Theater in WWII. He returned ...read on

One dad led his family to church every Sunday. For one to two hours he prioritized church with his family. For the rest of the week, he prioritized work that involved long hours and extensive travel. While the intent initially was to provide well financially for his family, in fact he put his marriage and family in the back seat on his personal drive to be successful.

It is important to know that as dads lead, kids will ...read on
