Legacy

I love the word “Legacy”. It makes me think about how I want to be remembered. It makes me think of the lives I have had an opportunity to impact and influence. I love the thought of shaping our children in such a way that they will be marked one day by what was important...

What Kind of Difference Are You Making TODAY?

A Desire Accomplished

For the month of July, I have been reading the book of Proverbs. Every day I read the Proverb that corresponds to the day. Today, I read Proverbs 13. I was impressed once again with the truth that a desire accomplished is sweet to the soul, Proverbs 13:19. For me, a desire becomes a goal;...

I want to share a simple thought this week. Your children need to know that you believe in them. It is not healthy to constantly focus on just their limitations and weaknesses. The world, the flesh, and the enemy already do a great job of sending that message of defeat. What they need more than...

A Reflection from a Dad

As I sat in the auditorium watching my son and the 2008 Circle graduates receive their diplomas given by Jim Werner announcing the new title of ADULT, I was reflecting on the process that has shaped them from infants to the adults they have become. In most homes, mothers have taken on the major role...

How Clear is Your Vision?

I stood at the beach prepared for the race . . . 5,4,3,2,1, – GO! One hundred and twenty-five ladies jumped into the water for the quarter-mile swim. Thirty yards ahead, I experienced a kick in the head, becoming dizzy, having blurred vision, taking in water from the lake. I continued at a much slower...
