Maybe it’s just me, but it seems to get harder and harder to come up with good Mother’s Day gift ideas as we get older. I mean, isn’t it just like Life to get us to a point of true appreciation at the same time our mothers arrive at the point of “I don’t need […]Read more "A Mother’s Day Conundrum"
It’s Holy Week, the week approaching my favorite holiday. As I think back on what Jesus was doing on this day all those years ago, I find Him living out the gospel even before His work on earth was finished.

Why am I awake, you ask? Well, I just haven’t gone to sleep for the […]Read more "Letter to a Newborn"

In the meantime, television. When I was first introduced to Criminal Minds (HT: KNS), I […]Read more "The Gospel and TV… or Why I Watch Criminal Minds"
