I Love Our President, Barack Obama.

If there is one conversation I always stay away from, regardless of the setting or media platform, it is politics. There is not much room for give and take in politics, it is a very polarizing subject. Talking about it seems to bring out the worst in people as we feel we have the right…

Be a Gentle Daddy

Parallel to my work with Motor Racing Outreach, I am also a ‘tentmaker’ working for one of my best friend’s travel agency. The travel agency, Off to Neverland Travel®, specializes in Disney Destinations; leaving us with all kinds of ‘business’ trips with the family to Walt Disney World® Resort and other Disney Destinations. It is a tough…

Should Christians Get Tattoos?

Should a follower of Christ get a tattoo? The answer seems quite simple according to the verse I hear quoted most often.   “‘Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD.’” – Leviticus 19:28   Additionally there is 1 Corinthians 6:19, “Do you not know that…


We Weren’t Needed, We Were Wanted

Racecars Don’t Build Themselves

Several years ago I led a bible study for a NASCAR Nationwide Series team, BakerCurb Racing, when they were still in operation in Nashville. I always enjoyed getting there a few minutes early so I could look in the shop. The process of building racecars always amazed me. I am not a very mechanically inclined…

5 Lies I Wish I Could Say

5 Lies I Wish I Could Tell My Son

I remember a few weeks ago laying in bed with our five year old by my side as he was falling asleep. He was somewhat uncomfortable and fidgety; overtired and unrelaxed. As he rolled onto his side for the 15th time I placed my hand on his back. Within a few brief moments he was…

Don’t Let Others Keep You From the Race

In my time with people of  different faiths and ideologies, one of the most common reasons I hear for a lack of belief in (or relationship with) God is, “I don’t believe in God (or care about God) because of the way Christians live.“ I used to find this a compelling argument. If you really consider…

I Don’t Invite People to Church

I have a confession. I don’t invite people to church.   Before you drag me through the streets crying heresy, please allow me the opportunity to present my heart to you.   I adore our local church. It is a beautiful part of the body of Christ in motion. The Conduit family is our family;…
