The Secret to Sonny’s™ Success

The Secret to Sonny’s™ Success

Those of you from around Tallahassee will no doubt understand that the Sonny’s on Timberlane Road has a secret to success. Two words: Wildwood Church. Rarely do I enter Sonny’s without seeing someone from our church, but I’m sure they appreciate our love for their establishment even more, as demonstrated by the fact that we have a corporate account with them. But I’m not writing about Sonny’s financial success, but it’s success to my parenting. I guess having a newborn…

Beyond the Message: Best Sex Ever – Pt. 1

Beyond the Message: Best Sex Ever – Pt. 1

To my middle and high school students… I am going to try to go beyond the message for you guys each week, because I realize that (1) I can’t cover this subject well in only about 20 minutes and have more things to say and (2) many of you may have feedback you want to give or questions that you would like to ask and may not be comfortable doing so in person. So feel free to post a reply…

An ambulance, ER & Living for Eternity

An ambulance, ER & Living for Eternity

Well, needless to say, last night was a little scary.

Jesus says, “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I came so that they…

Am I really that old?

Am I really that old?

Well, another year and another birthday. At times it is hard for me to imagine that I’ve ventured into the 30’s since at times working in student ministry makes me think I’m still one of them! I guess that is good since it does keep me young and current with trends and fads, but then my body reminds me that I’m not one of them… and at times, they remind me that I’m not one of them! We are remodling…

Loving Like God Loves

Loving Like God Loves

I find that the more I am supposed to be growing to be like God, I realize how far I really am! Brooke was on call the other night and got called into work which left me and the boys together on a school night (needing to prepare for bed and such) but also having to get up to church to rehearse with the worship team. Somewhat stressful. We had to leave rehearsal early to get home and after getting…

Off I Go…

Off I Go…

Well… this has been a long time coming, I guess. I don’t think it has been the fear of connection or sharing that has kept me away from MySpace, Facebook and being a Blogger, but the time commitment. It seems that so much already occupies my time that it is hard for me to give something else my attention! But ministering to this generation of technology savvy students has increased my desire to understand the world of internet connection/relationships verses…
