Feed The Homeless

The teens will meet at the building at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 25, to prepare lunch for the homeless in downtown Birmingham at Linn Park. If you would like to join us, come on. We could certainly use the help. We will leave the building at 11:45 a.m. and return by 1:00 p.m. If…

Make it Right

My son, Jackson, and I are co-coaching Tyler’s basketball team this season, and it has definitely been an experience. For the past couple of weeks, we have been working extremely hard on layup drills. Although our team is 3-0, we still have plenty of improvement opportunities. If they miss a layup in practice, I hand…

How Hungry Are You?

In the office is a popcorn machine. There is something about the smell of popcorn that draws the vast majority of the human race directly to it. I’ve also known some animals that love popcorn, too. When the popcorn is popping and the smell penetrates throughout the building, it is amazing how many friends come…

Create

This past weekend, we had a small group leaders’ retreat at Hargis Christian Retreat Center, and it was full of energy, adventure, focus, distraction, and a time to create a masterpiece. We sang, got extremely distracted by a mouse running across the floor, attempted to refocus, but we were unsuccessful for a period of time.…

God’s Masterpiece

We are almost two weeks into the New Year. How is everyone doing with your resolutions? Sometimes we succeed. Sometimes we get knocked down and fail. In the words of Rocky Balboa in Rocky V, “when things get hard, don’t look for someone to blame. Nobody is going to hit as hard as life, but…

Do You Get It?

It seems like yesterday that Whitney and I were racing to Northside Hospital in Atlanta, GA so she could give birth to our firstborn son, Jackson. In just a few more weeks, our boy will be turning 16 years old. For the past several months, I’ve been diligently teaching him how to drive a stick…

Comfort and Convenience

This past Sunday afternoon I spent some quality time in Nashville, TN with my family, a host of recovering drug addicts, and a multitude of others who have compassion to help those in active addiction. Sunday was open house for Stepping Stones Recovery Retreat Center. The Mission: to help men uncover, discover, and recover. So…

Conductor

If you live in Helena, you will get stopped by a train…often. Yesterday was one of those days, and I would be the first to go when the red lights stopped flashing and the railroad arm raised. It is rare that I am the first vehicle, and it is even more rare that I get…

“Dead” Bonsai

The last time our family went to Disneyworld, Jackson “had” to have a Bonsai tree. He spent his hard earned money and made sure that they wrapped it up perfectly for the trip home. He carried that thing around like it was a newborn baby. He protected it at all costs. He would peek into…
