Hearing problem turns into a blessing


I debated about sharing this with you because it’s personal. I know some of you think I share way too much of my personal life, especially about my sons, my wife and other people I have mentioned by name over the years. But I also know most of my readers are probably within a 10-year […]

Sharing Jesus in a Mexican prison


For years, I have taught the young missionaries I disciple that “Our disappointments become God’s divine appointments.” For most of my life, God has used disappointments to put me in the right place at the right time. I can tell you story after story of these experiences, and each time, I’m caught off-guard when He […]

One man’s junk is another man’s treasure


Last week was Cohen the Goodhearted’s first birthday. Today’s parenting styles are so much different than when my wife and I were raising our children.  When our boys had their first birthdays, we just sat them in a highchair, gave them a cupcake, sang Happy Birthday, and that was the end of it. But today’s […]

‘Brother Pray will now…Crowe for us’


I didn’t watch the Oscars this year. I hardly knew any of the actors and had never heard of most of the movies, so I chose to spend my time playing with my grandsons and then reading a book. Of course, I did see the flub over the Picture of the Year award. The news […]

God teaches me a lesson at Wal-Mart


“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer” (Rom. 12:12). I must confess that one of my weaknesses is a lack of patience. I think I am fairly good with the hope thing, and the faith things is pretty strong in my life, but that middle one, patience, gets me every time. For […]

Rental car’s computer turns up the heat


I rent cars, lots of cars.  If I have to go out of town to speak and need to drive there, I’ve made it my practice to rent a car. Driving is often more economical than flying, and this way, my personal vehicles don’t have to take the abuse of a long trip. The weekend […]

Countdown to column Number 1,000


This article marks 19 years of writing, a total of 950 consecutive articles. When I finished my 500th article, I didn’t think I had another 500 left in me. But I kept writing, and then I decided not to stop until I hit 1,000. If the Lord tarries and nothing happens to me, I am […]

Stilts, cardboard boxes and Jesus…


My fondest memories of childhood come from the things I made myself. Our family didn’t have much, but we were resourceful. A stick became a bat, a playing card became a bicycle engine and a box became a fort. If we could dream it, we could build it. One of the things I remember most […]

It’s a small world and getting smaller


I’m sitting in my office, thinking about what a strange world we live in as I try to fix our website. Our link to the country of Panama isn’t working. We’ve tried to fix it in-house, but it’s way above my skill level. I have trouble just getting around on the interwebby thingamajig. I went […]

Antioch Baptist Church did not burn


Last month, my wife and I celebrated our 42nd anniversary. We got up that morning, looked at each other, said, “Happy Anniversary!” and went about our day’s work.  I met my wife, Cathy, in Hannibal, Missouri, where I was attending school at Hannibal LaGrange College. New to the area, new to the ministry and very […]
