I don’t know about you, but Father’s Day holds a great place in my heart. Sure, there are many holidays that I can say that about, but as a man who is now going into his fifth year as a father, I can appreciate it with a certain perspective that I never dreamed possible before. The day I married my wife, fatherhood was a sort of package deal, since she was already raising a young one. Although the idea of a ready-made family had not been on my radar when I first imagined myself as a married man, I did however hope that I’d have the opportunity to try. Read more

One of the things I enjoy most about being home is being able to attend the church I grew up in, which my father also happens to pastor. The congregation is small enough that it has become more like extended family. I’ve learned quite a few lessons from sermons that have been given from that pulpit and challenged to actually apply them throughout the following week. Sometimes, I am simply reminded of God’s never-ending care for His people, mostly through the words of others during testimonies. Read more

My wife was fortunate to be in a career at the time that allowed her to work from home; it was one of the benefits of the pioneering age of social media. She could literally work from anywhere in the country. Read more
Time flies. It seems like just yesterday I stepped foot on campus to start classes. Now, two years after transferring to Regent University, here I am as a graduate from the College of Arts and Sciences.

In the summertime, Regent takes on a new personality. Classes slow down and the buzz of student activity dies down to a quiet hum. As the heat outside goes up, it seems life in general has started to cool down.
By the time the school year was coming to an end, most of my peers had already begun buzzing about what they planned to do with their summers. The majority of them were headed back home, setting out to see past friends, work old jobs, and loaf around as much as possible. Others were going out to complete internships – boosting their resumes and gathering new life experiences. Another group chose to leave the country, spending their free months travelling the world and serving the Lord through missions.
I, on the other hand, had opted for a different path. Read more
I am not a scientist, or even a Science major. In fact, I have to say a big “Thank God!” to the fact that Regent University offers transfer credits so that I do not have to take another science class ever again. Now that we’ve established that I am not an expert on the subject, let me tell you one thing I do know.
Science impacts your relationships. Specifically, gravity.
Gravity is what holds us all down on the Earth. It is the force that makes it easy to lift a feather but not a TV. Gravity pulls at us every day. Read more
