Crazy Busy? Try This…

Last night, I came home from work and my head was spinning. My long to-do list was orbiting in front of my eyes like the rings around the planet Saturn. I was completely absorbed in work-related thoughts all the way home and even through dinner. I am ashamed to admit that I was hoping to get right back... [Read more...]

Gratitude for Groceries

This may sound ridiculous, but one of the most satisfying experiences in my life is shopping for groceries. This morning, I woke up early. Kathi and I had a very nice anniversary yesterday, complete with dinner, a movie, and strolling around Easton Town Center near Columbus. Unfortunately, this morning... [Read more...]

Lives of Caring

It’s been 10 years since 9/11. The day that changed everything, and everyone who watched replay after replay of airplanes flying into buildings. But how have we changed for the better? Consider just one quality: are we more caring for others? As America prepares to remember the fallen, each of us hearkens... [Read more...]

Pulchritude in Women

Some of the most beautiful women I know are over 80. An odd confluence of circumstances led me to this conclusion. First, I went to a funeral this weekend. My college roommate’s Dad passed away at the age of 87. Although I only saw him a handful of times over the course of many years, he was a... [Read more...]

Remembering 9/11 – on 9/12

Today’s guest post was written by my Dad ten years ago, just 24 hours after the first aircraft struck the World Trade Center. It still resonates, and is presented here in honor of the victims whose lives were lost on that tragic day. Terror versus Care: A message to terrorists I have never seen... [Read more...]

Got Gratitude?

Sometimes bad news comes thick and fast, to the point of being overwhelming. I have two friends whose fathers are struggling with lung cancer. Another whose marriage is on the rocks. One lost his house to foreclosure recently. On a national scale, we have heard plenty of bad economic news. The weather... [Read more...]

The Value of a Woman – Part II

Have you ever been really angry, only to have your anger morph into gratitude? It sounds crazy, doesn’t it? When I posted “The Value of a Woman” last week, I was pretty upset about my wife being treated poorly by a “scumbag” salesman. To those who took exception to my description of the salesman,... [Read more...]

The Value of a Woman

I have rarely been so angry. Last week, Kathi called me at work. We were in the process of selling a car, and the prospective buyer had asked us to drive it over to her mechanic friend for an inspection. No problem, we thought. Until Kathi arrived at the seedy used car lot where the mechanic friend worked. Out... [Read more...]

The Church and New Media

Young, smart people inspire me. A few months ago, I spent a couple days at Our Sunday Visitor (OSV) in Huntington, IN. My friend Greg Erlandson asked if I knew Brandon Vogt, a young blogger and author with a book coming out in August. The question must have been divinely inspired. At Greg’s suggestion,... [Read more...]

Foreign Inspiration

One of the reasons I’m a grateful convert is through the inspiration of others who have responded to the gospel message in wonderful ways. An example is Ann Voskamp, an advocate for Compassion and fellow Canadian. Ann is from a non-denominational tradition, although she believes in the Nicene and... [Read more...]
