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…

Fruit on the Bottom

Yogurt is a favorite breakfast food for me. It’s not necessarily the taste of it, but the fruit on the bottom. I get disappointed when I accidentally purchase the wrong brand, and it’s already mixed up. That is my favorite part… digging that spoon to the bottom and bringing all those chunks of fruit to…

Back To School Project

Our teens love this mission effort as we go shopping for children in need to purchase necessary school supplies for them and select an outfit or two or three for Back To School. The teens are given a budget and a time limit. We unload the buses, and they are off to the races. Target…

Contentment

Do you love Disneyworld? During our last night on “The Happiest Place on Earth,” we found a perfect spot to watch the fireworks in Epcot. We were there two hours early and even found some time to take a much needed nap from the miles we had walked throughout the week. The kids were getting…

Happy

Over Spring Break, the Bassetts allowed the Pruitts to tag along with them to Disney World.  We called it the Pru-Setts Vacation. As we approached the front gate, security escorted Kim and Jackson into the security “Bag Check” line. There were two lines, but Kim’s line seemed to be going much slower but also filled…

Influence

Congratulations to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Growing up in Birmingham and being an Auburn Tiger all my life, rooting against the Tide has always been normal for me. We all wanted to see a great game last night, and we did. Both teams consistently exercised extreme discipline and are loaded with talent. I’ve been a…
