The curse of the broccoli casseroles


I wonder what makes people give the gifts they do. When someone gives me a scented candle, are they telling me my house stinks? And why would they give me a Mango/Kiwi/Dirty Sock-scented candle? There are only a couple of reasons. The first is that they had a sale at the candle store: Buy one […]

Wisdom and a truckload of manure


I get home last night to find 3-year-old Titus the Honorable at my house. I don’t know if he was more excited to see me or the pile of dirt in the back of my truck. “Poppy, can I play in the dirt?” he asked. I could see in his little eyes that adventurous spirit […]

The most important thing not to miss…


I was sitting with an older gentleman not long ago, and we got to talking about what it was like when we were growing up and how life has shifted. For thousands of years, there wasn’t much of a shift. Your grandfather farmed the land, then your dad took over the farm and one day, […]

What will I live for? What will I die for?


There are two things a person can strive for on this side of eternity: a title or a testimony. The difference between the two is very simple. A title is what a person has achieved; a testimony is what God does in and through a person. A title will go to the grave with you, […]

Lessons from a sleep-deprived night


As I write this article, I realize that when I finish, I need to go to confession. It’s hard to find a confessional booth in a Baptist church, so I’ll just look for a nearby bathroom stall. Remember a long time ago when you were frustrated with one of your children and loudly proclaimed, “I […]

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 […]
