Eyes of the Father: Why be shy about revealing our faith?

There are certain times when my kids make me so proud. Cole mooning an entire restaurant, however, was not one of those times.

Eyes of the Father: Let our Father be strong for you in time of need

I came along behind Chloe and swept her up into my arms. She looked at me with a surprised expression on her face and said, "Daddy, you're strong!"

Eyes of the Father: Passage of time can vary in eternity

"For hours" is Chloe's new saying when she's bored. She uses the phrase in the following contexts: "We've been driving for hours." "We've been watching this movie for hours" (depending on what the movie's about, I may actually agree with her assessment).

Eyes of the Father: The joy of being found

Chloe and Cole are not very good at hide and seek. We played the game in the house the other day. I told them to go hide somewhere and I would be "it." I told them I would count to 20, then come looking for them. If I found them, I won. If I didn't find them, they won.

Eyes of the Father: We should leave the punishment to God

I think that one of these days, Chloe and Cole are going to grow up and seek careers in law enforcement. Why do I think this? Because they demonstrate a heightened sense of justice? Because of their desire to see wrongs righted?

Eyes of the Father: God finds the right combo of ingredients to heal our souls

One night at the dinner table, I watched Cole eat. He scooped up some sweet potatoes and placed them on top of a nacho cheese Dorito. Then he ate it.

Eyes of the Father: Discipline can help our faith grow

Cole came to me crying. This in itself is not unusual. Cole cries at a lot of things. If he gets in trouble. If Chloe says or does something mean to him. When he has to go to bed.

Eyes of the Father: Remember the real reason for the Christmas season

This Christmas, I've been a man on a mission. When I was a child, Christmas was one of my favorite times of the year. I have many happy memories tied to the holiday.

Eyes of the Father: God's love shines through like a father's kiss

I was standing at the deli counter in a local grocery store, waiting my turn. Cole was with me and I was holding him in my arms. I leaned forward to give him a kiss on his little cheek. His cheek tasted so good, I gave him another kiss. And another. And another.

Eyes of the Father: God’s umbrella protects us just enough

We went shopping while it was raining. I got out of the van, opened my umbrella and held it so Chloe and Cole could get out. Together we walked toward the store's entrance, timing our steps so that we all stayed under the umbrella together.

Eyes of the Father: Small sins can erode our moral handhold over time

"Get your feet down, Chloe."

Eyes of the Father: Salvation is about the message, not the messenger

For several weeks she'd been so close. She knew what sin was, she knew that it separated us from God and she knew that Jesus came to die for our sins. Yet she hadn't quite made the connection between Jesus dying for our sins and us needing to personally accept his sacrifice - and him as savior - in order to receive that forgiveness.

Eyes of the Father: Obeying God leads to better understanding

A few months ago I bought an exercise bike. Why, you might ask? Simple. We needed somewhere else to hang our clothes.
