King David’s Thoughts on Money

0 Comment

This morning, I preached about thoughts on money from the perspective of a king, a prophet, and a savior. The whole message gets pretty lengthy in written form, but here’s a rough version of the first portion regarding King David. The entire message will be available in video form midweek at HillcrestCov.org. Gleaning thoughts on…

Often – daily – I get asked “so, how are all the little ones?”, so I thought it would be beneficial to go ahead and round up the whole answer in one spot.  Here are updates on the littles and the bigs. Scout will be 2 on February 3rd, and Scout  is happy.  Happy to…

My letter to President Obama on his inauguration

0 Comment

I published this on January 22, 2009, as President Obama was taking office. Dear Mr. President I don’t believe in perfunctory niceties, Senator, so I’ll level with you. I voted for the other guy. Actually, I voted more for the lady with the other guy, but that’s a whole ‘nother letter. Even so, I’m excited…

Why I Relinquished My Citizenship in Facebook Nation

0 Comment

Relax. I am not going to try to convince you to delete Facebook. I think Facebook is awesome. It provided me countless opportunities to reconnect with hundreds of people I had lost track of over the years, a steady glimpse into the lives of people who are dear to me, and an opportunity to share…

Scout will be two in a few months….but today is a milestone. One year ago today, we gathered in the Zoe’s House conference room to finalize his adoption.  Our friend and Zoe Staffer Christina Styles served as the notary under the direction of a Florida county judge. It was a good day to close out…
