Family Shepherds

I just finished this new book by Voddie Baucham. It was a gift from my wife for Father's Day. I would encourage every man to read this book. Voddie has articulated and applied Biblical principles so men can be equipped to be the leaders God Almighty is calling them to be in their homes. I have read many books on educating men in this area and have gleaned great wisdom from many, but I have also seen some contextual criticism come up when attempting to discuss these books with other men; not with this book. Voddie has allowed God to properly keep each scripture reference in context and to the point "That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works". 2nd Timothy 3:17. Men step up and lead!

What some people will do for free food (year 2)

Yes,  for the second year we dressed up as cows to receive free food at Chickfila we also met up with our friends the Duncans.  The Chickfila cow was out and all the kids (as you can tell from the picture above) were very excited.  This year we went for lunch and it was completely packed out with cows of all ages.   We had a fun time making our outfits and all the kids helped make their outfits unique.  We LOVE ChickFilA.

3 weeks of squeezing

I am so thankful for my family. The last 3 weeks have been tough. Trying to help our local congregation at Waterville Baptist get ready to open has been very difficult. July 8th is almost here! My wife has been amazing and my kids are such a blessing. Devotion time is my favorite time with my children, and we have had to be very creative these past weeks to keep our devotions, but my blessings have understood. Through these difficult times, our church has been challenged and we have been squeezed. Let's hope what came forth from the squeezing was Jesus and not my flesh. Growing hurts. Some Christians I know don't even have to be squeezed and "fleshly" things are present. Let me say ; the fruits of the Spirit do not consist of impatience, hatefulness, or "I have arrived" attitude. I think you will find the list in scripture is the exact opposite. God knows our short comings and He can mold us into His likeness, but these 3 things mentioned have to go. I can't wait for Sunday!
