Is Your Axe Dull?

In our Wednesday evening teen class, we are studying a series of lessons designed to instill biblically-based leadership traits in our teens. We hope to plant a seed in each teen’s heart that will help them recognize that anyone can be a leader, whether it be at school, church, or within their families. Our most…

Highlights

Riverchase has been my home church since 1979, and although I went off to college for much longer than I should have, I still considered this place… home. Although I got married and moved to Atlanta for several years, we couldn’t wait to get closer to home to raise our family. We are thankful we…

Build Sandcastles

People ask me often, “Scott, what do you do for fun?” I love building sandcastles. This past week, my family and I got to slip away for a few days for a vacation at the beach. As I began the building process, many comments and puzzled eyes were buzzing around me. I simply smiled and…

Good Fruit

What is your favorite fruit? Why is that one your favorite? Yesterday, for Memorial Day, my family spent some time at my parents’ house swimming, eating, relaxing, and thanking God for all the military who have served our country and given their life to protecting our rights and maintaining peace. Lately, I have been focused…

Recognition

Today is a big day at Whitney’s school. All the teachers are putting on a drive-thru parade for all the children. They will certainly adhere to the CDC guidelines, but the issue that the teachers were having was that the “children would not be able to recognize their teachers while wearing masks.” Teachers are the…

Recipe of Awesomeness

The only problem was that Whitney sent me to the grocery store, recipe in hand, to find all the ingredients. She even sent me pictures of…

I have been in discussion with Maywood Camp, and they remain in a waiting period until Governor Ivey addresses the state on May 15. The Maywood Board will meet on…

Choice-Points

Are your kids getting tired of you? Are you getting tired of your kids? What’s for lunch? What’s for dinner? What are we doing today, tomorrow, the next day? Will you please let me sleep ten more minutes? Answer: It is noon, get up! Those questions hit you before you even have your first cup…

Transition

2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Rom. 12:2 NIV) 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. (Eph. 2:10 NIV) 28 “Come to me, all you who…

Take Root

5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5 NIV) What does it mean to remain? To abide, to wait for, await one. John 15:5 has been a special verse to me…
