Is your marriage fun?

Have you ever tried to ride a tandem bicycle? It’s harder than it looks, for many reasons. After recently taking a spin on one with my wife, it dawned on me that having fun in marriage is a LOT like riding a tandem bike.    Having fun together might be the most under-estimated investment married people can add to their marriage. I know all too well that as the years go by and with the addition of kids, life only gets more busy and we get more tired! That is not a great... Read More

What kids need to hear from their dad (Part 1)

I shared the following list in my  2014 Father’s Day sermon.  People have been asking me for the full version, so here it is!    I am a firm believer that a father is the primary influence in a child’s life, for better or worse, for a child’s entire life.
