Selfies, Selfie with Jesus, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Family Matters, Grace Based Parenting, Jesus

If you could slip through a time warp to when Jesus was here on earth—and take your iPhone or Droid along for the ride—I think it would be hard to resist the temptation to snap a few selfies with the Saviour.   Selfies are a new phenomenon only because the technology that makes them possible […]

  Okay, okay, I apologize for the gratuitous “Frozen” reference in the title of this blog. If you have young children, I know you’ll understand how quickly a parent’s life becomes saturated with “kid culture.” At this moment in my life, MOPS doesn’t stand for “Mothers of Preschoolers.” It stands for “Mother Obligingly Playing Soundtracks.” […]

Friday.  Late morning.  Approximately 11:45a.m.  Mount of Olives Country Club.  The two dignitaries stood side by side studying the 14th hole.  It was a mild dogleg left about 346 yards from the blue tees.

  I’m very blessed to be part of a Titus 2 Bible study once a month.  I wish it were weekly.  This past week we met over dinner and discussed Philippians 4:1-9.
