Giving Life to Find it

“They’ve given themselves more than any human being ever could have. It’s miraculous the ways they’ve been able to do that. Not only are they not dead, they’re doing really well. And then you look at those people that have alot of kids, and they’re doing really well. You either write them off as either superheroes or super crazy.”

Time Well Spent

We need to work hard, but at the same time we also need to be able to play hard, and enjoy time together. And that leads us to be more refreshed and more fulfilled. And the role of work doesn’t trump my role as a father and as a husband.

Managing Godly Expectations

“What does it mean to love God? That’s a tough question. The more I learn that He’s here, and it is good that He’s here. When He speaks to me, it feels good – it feels like a firm foundation. And things begin to make sense. The more I’m exposed to God, the more it makes sense.”

Do You Choose Trust?

“God, I want to do what you’re asking me to do, but there’s two of us here. Why haven’t you told her when you’ve told me loud and clear?”

Blessed Amidst The Storms

“I want you to see the people with these open hearts, theses loving kind hearts that have been so generous to us. But I don’t want you to stop just at that person. I want you to see God, who is the giver of all good things, behind all of that.”

Yield to Love

“How am I doing when it comes to my relationship with Elise? And I’ve got my point that I want to say, and I’ve got my reasons, and I’m gonna interrupt and stop and try to do the thing that I think is right in the moment, when what I really need to do is yield to love.”
