If God were to speak to you right now would you be ready to listen? Several years ago I was Youth Pastor at First Baptist Church in Aztec, NM. I took a group of Juniors and Seniors from high school down to Wayland Baptist University in Texas to check out the college and to hear … More Are you ready?
Yesterday I wrote about “an unguarded moment” in my life. That moment took place in the early Spring of 2000. I catch myself sometimes thinking a lot about times that have gone by. It’s interesting to me that my children do the same. Just the other day one of them made the comment that she … More An unguarded moment (pt 2)
Randall O’Brien has a book entitled, “I Feel Better All Over Than I Do Anywhere Else”. A friend of mine is full of all sorts of corny sayings.

Much of what I was taught as a young believer came from several bands and friends. What I was taught was radical… deeply life changing… and scary to … More looking forward from the past.
A few years ago I had a dream to take a group of teenagers down to Central and South America. I even met with a missionary from the country I was looking at taking this group to. I had begun gathering information and resources to learn enough of the language for the youth to be … More Hollow Eyes
I have been listening to some vintage Christian music the past few days. It’s been a very encouraging experience to listen to some tunes that are over 20 years old. So much of the music I listened to then really shaped my young Christian life. Petra, Whiteheart, Russ Taff, Stryper, Jerusalem, and U2… they each have had their … More Walking by faith
I once lived in Kansas for about a year and a half. Before moving to Kansas I had found the beauty of cycling in the mountains of Colorado and the high desert of New Mexico to be awesome. I was surprised that I would find beauty riding on the flat plains of Kansas. My favorite … More Will you dance with me? (pt 2)
