Hurricane Matthew

Cats, Hurricanes and Haiti

As Dr. Reynolds entered the room and turned off the light prior to placing his laptop on the exam table in front of us, I knew that the news was not going to be favorable. Glowing on his computer screen was, for a lack of better terms, an image of Nacho’s insides. His voice was calm as…

Rio 2016 Summer Olympics

Olympic Sell-Outs

  As happens every four years in my life, I have been completely absorbed by the Olympics in Rio, which is intriguing, because I am not your typical ‘sports guy’. My most athletic feats are my ability to ‘disappear’ when any mention of a pick-up game of any sport is mentioned and my uncanny ability…

Dash Scripture

No ‘Plan B’

One evening while I was brushing Micah’s teeth he posed a question to me.   “Did you tell anyone about Jesus, Daddy?“   Earlier that morning I had just returned from another event serving the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series community. While the strain of a traveling Dad can be a lot for a family at home…

Nothing short of organized…

Three circles. Three circles have become the symbol and driving theme of the Walt Disney Company, and an icon that is adored by families around the world. The ever-distinctive Mickey Mouse ears profile. Being a company with such tremendous success and one that has prided itself in family entertainment, I am sure Walt would have never imagined…


Goodnight, America.

Following an emotional final show that was surprisingly infused with spirituality; surrounded by confetti Ryan Seacrest spoke the final words of a fifteen year story as he looked into the camera one final time; ‘Goodnight, America.’ It shouldn’t have been an emotional moment for me, but it was. I looked over at Michelle, “Did you cry?” I…

The White House - Republican God

HOPE in the Wrong Place.

I was in 6th grade when Bill Clinton was elected as the 42nd President of the United States of America. At 11 years old, this was the first election I’d followed. I knew very little about what was happening other than what I had heard on the news and in conversations. From the pulpit I’d heard mentions…
