One Reason…

Aimee and I held hands at Victory Life Church in Akron, OH, sitting next to a few other friends from college, on a warm summer morning, in 2012. We had gathered to celebrate the life of our college friend who […]

Back to the Desert

Here we are, full swing into a new year. No matter what last year brought, this one is still fresh and unwritten. A January “honeymoon phase,” with all of 2017 to continue reflecting, making changes, and moving forward. Personally, I’m […]

Not Ready Yet…

Christmas lights… shopping lists… holiday music on the radio… Everywhere we turn we see the world already starting to celebrate Christmas. Maybe “celebrate” isn’t even the right word. It seems we are just ready to start the partying aspect of […]

I Need You…

“I need you.” These might be the three hardest words we utter in our life. Three of the most courageous identifiers that gives us an indication we know who we are. Three powerful, beautiful words making a declaration that we […]

God’s not Looking for Actors

A reflection written originally for our youth but applicable to ALL ages. This is a chance to share a call which reminds us that it isn’t about just what we do, but the manner and motive behind what we do. Look beyond the moment of what feels good, is mostly popular with your friends or even what might be easiest and give God the glory He deserves by being the difference maker who might just change other’s hearts in the process.

My Cross is Bigger than Your Cross…

Big, small, wide, narrow, smooth or splintered, it doesn’t matter, a cross is a cross and everyone is carrying one.

If this is the case, it is impossible to understand the magnitude and size of the burden someone else is feeling by comparing it to your own hurts.

Just Released!

It’s finally here! The album I have been encouraging my wife to do for the last five years. “All I Ever Have to Be…” is a combination of Aimee’s vocals and reflections I offer as we transition from one theme to the next. A perfect blend to reflect and pray with, listen to in the car with the family or share with someone who is longing to encounter God in a familiar way through music.
