Some “Post Dad’s Day” words for our children – Andrew and Naomi

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well. It gave me great joy when some believers came and testified about your faithfulness to the truth, telling how you continue to walk in it. I have no greater joy …

Father’s Day – need I say more?

The righteous live with integrity; happy are their children who come after them. - Proverbs 20:7 I don't know when I last had the privilege of seeing both Andrew and Naomi on Father's Day. But yesterday, right here at the family reunion in North Georgia, my cup was full. It really doesn't take much to …

life rocks! Dads’ Day at Maul-Hall is just another example!

What a great Fathers' Day! It had all the best features: family, friends, food, celebration, a powerful morning at church, serendipity all over the place. Far too much to cover in one post, but I'll offer some highlights. First, Andrew and Alicia flew in to RDU Saturday evening. This was their terminal move from Italy,and …

getting a jump-start on FATHER’S DAY

NOTE: Once in a while - very rarely, I'll use this blog to reference or promote one (or more) of my books; today is going to be one of those days! However, the merits - or otherwise - of self-promotion aside, the coming celebration of FATHER'S DAY, I believe, not only allows for this post …

so grateful to be a father

So today is Father's Day. It's one of my favorite celebrations because no-one makes too much of it other than to let dad pretty much do whatever he wants. For me, that involves parking myself on the sofa and enjoying the luxury of watching a few hours of  U.S. Open Golf without feeling lazy or …
