The Voice that Shook the Earth

The Voice that Shook the Earth

Good morning, Kids. Today’s reading reminded me of all the recent earthquakes, not just here in America, but all around the world. They are devastating, as are tornadoes & floods. These and other dangerous forces of nature and natural phenomenon, like hail & sinkholes, are not new to us. We...Read more
Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

Good morning, Kids. Before Marty Roe became the lead singer of the hugely successful group, Diamond Rio, he was a member of the Christian band, Windsong. When we were students at Lipscomb in the early 80’s, I knew who Marty was, but only that he was a member of Windsong....Read more
It’s All About Who You Know

It’s All About Who You Know

Good morning, Kids. Today’s reading reminded me of Kickstarter. I knew nothing about it until Jessica Willis Fisher announced that she had started a fundraising campaign for her debut solo recording project. Kickstarter capitalizes on the financial idea of using other people’s money (“OPM”), to start a business, which is...Read more

Happy Father’s Day!

Good morning, Sons. It was an honor to meet Paul Overstreet, a true legend of Nashville’s singer/songwriter community. He was a guest on the Rodeo & Juliet Show at the Franklin Theatre. I told Paul that I appreciate the focus on the family in his music. So much so, that...Read more
God’s Country Is Always Great!

God’s Country Is Always Great!

Good morning, Kids. Today’s reading reminded me of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again,” because it sounds so similar to what God’s chosen people were constantly begging Him to do, that is, to “Make Israel Great Again.” And, then I realized God’s country is always great. The...Read more
Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day!

Good morning, Kids. On this Memorial Day, it seems only fitting that today’s reading would include God’s commandments to the Jews that were designed to help them remember something very important, that He had redeemed them. God commanded the Jews to observe the Feast of Passover, the Feast of Weeks,...Read more

Happy Mother’s Day!

Good morning, Daughters. I recently discovered some beautiful music by Donna Taggart. The lyrics of her song, “Mom,” wonderfully describe the characteristics of a Godly mother. For example, “… she is a loving angel, tender, tough, & strong, … whose only goal in life is making sure her children will...Read more
The Witness in a Walk-up Song

The Witness in a Walk-up Song

Some may question Caleb’s choice of a walk-up song. If, however, the purpose of a walk-up song is to motivate the player, then I believe it is an excellent choice. In a game in which the failure rate for a hitter is 70% – 80%, this song reminds him of...Read more
Would God Spare This Country?

Would God Spare This Country?

Good morning, Kids. On their bluegrass album, “Boots,” the follow up to their Irish debut album, “Roots,” The Willis Clan sings a song written about this very passage in today’s reading.  It is the story of Abraham begging God to spare Sodom (because it was where his nephew, Lot, lived)....Read more
Where Are the Soulguards?

Where Are the Soulguards?

Good morning, Kids. Today’s reading made me think about lifeguards. My job comes with a few neat perks, one of which is our quarterly pizza & a movie day.  This quarter, the day happened to fall on my birthday, and the movie was “The Sandlot” – Perfect! There is this...Read more
