Your kid might need an oil change

Do you listen to your car when it’s talking to you?  I’m not talking about that luxury brand computer on wheels that can email the dealership when it’s time for an oil change. I was thinking more along the lines of the 1996 4Runner with 306,000 miles on it like the one I drive. When…

Your kid might need an oil change

Do you listen to your car when it’s talking to you?  I’m not talking about that luxury brand computer on wheels that can email the dealership when it’s time for an oil change. I was thinking more along the lines of the 1996 4Runner with 306,000 miles on it like the one I drive. When…

Turkeys love seeds

Seeds contain everything plants need to grow. Likewise, I believe God creates people with seeds of greatness that are in each of us, from the very beginning. In that seed is everything we need to live a full life and bring glory to His name. But just like plant seeds, we have to care for…

A question to start the year

Questions have the unique power to nudge us to reflect and to act. The legendary Dr. Seuss asks: “Why fit in where you were born to stand out?” We really need you to stand out. Hamsight: Always listen to a cat in a hat

Ms. Annie Pearl Fisher

Ms. Annie Pearl and her family ran a neighborhood store in the late sixties and early seventies.  It was only two blocks from my house and they sold just about everything you could want or need. We only went there for one thing…junk food!  You could buy pickles, pickled pigs feet or even pickled eggs;…

Put in a good word

“Hey, when you see her, will you put in a good word for me?” When someone uses that phrase it’s usually used as a request to leverage your influence to open a door of opportunity. As I looked at that phrase, I started to think about the power of words and the impact they have…

You can’t run away

I have always loved being outside, and growing up that was especially true! Summertime outside was my favorite time of the year because there was always something to do.  We always seem to have what we needed, but we didn’t have many material things that were just for fun.

Can you put in what God left out?

One of my all-time favorite movies is Chariots of Fire!  The movie is a 1981 British historical drama film. It tells the fact-based story of two athletes in the 1924 Olympics: Eric Liddell, a devout Scottish Christian who runs for the glory of God, and Harold Abrahams, an English Jew who runs to overcome prejudice….

Are you comfortable?

I love hearing this question because it means that somebody is thinking about me and my experience. Most likely, I’m somewhere or doing something that I should be comfortable and enjoying myself.  The question implies that I should be comfortable and/or the person asking is willing to do something to make me comfortable if I’m…
