Mom filled our home with laughter and fun

    

I grew up in a family of comedians, my mom being the chief. She loved hearing jokes, she loved telling jokes, and she loved to laugh. She was the kind of person who could laugh long, hard and deep. One day she was telling a joke, got tickled in the middle of it and started […]

Speed bumps, honking horns and Red Rover

    

I’ve concluded drivers’ training is a U.S.-only thing. That’s because I’ve traveled the world as a missionary and have driven in most of the countries where I’ve served. If you aren’t close to Jesus, you will be within a mile of taking the wheel in another country. Just last week, I was driving a team […]

Lessons from Maria and mountain man

    

Sometimes is the smallest things that moves me the most. I just came back yesterday from Mexico where I was serving with 22 missionaries as we went about evangelizing. When I first started, I worked there in the garbage dumps of Nuevo Laredo, Mexico. Families would come from all over Mexico trying to get a […]

Raising a strong and courageous son

    

My son Caleb messaged me a picture last night of my grandson Titus the Honorable. He had climbed into his little brother’s baby bed and, holding onto the crib rail, walked his feet up the wall. (Look at the picture to see what I mean.) He is only three years old, but inside him lives […]

Friendship is the second greatest gift

    

The greatest gift is the salvation given to us through our Lord Jesus Christ. But today, I want to write about the second greatest gift, and that is the gift of friendship. To me, the measure of a person does not lie in their wealth but in the number of people who call them friend. […]

A special gift that requires no assembly

    

The three most dreaded words of the Christmas season are “Some Assembly Required.” Even though I consider myself somewhat average in the intelligence department, I stand with fear and trembling over what’s inside the box when it comes with the words “Some Assembly Required.” I am not afraid of the words “assembly” or “required,” but […]

The most beautiful ugly Christmas tree

    

It has become a tradition in the Moore family to put up our Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. For reasons unbeknownst to me, this duty has fallen my way. It always starts with a trek out to the backyard shed. Of course, all the Christmas stuff is stacked behind the lawn mower, the seed […]

Everyone should learn to speak Spanish

    

Titus the Honorable and I went on another adventure last Friday night. We were eating chicken in the food court of our local mall, and at the next table over sat an elderly lady. She was watching my grandson, and he knew it. Now, Titus is at the age where all the world’s a stage, […]

No better medicine than a thankful heart

    

As we approach this time of year, we move our thinking to gratitude and giving. I know we should be that way 365 days a year, but I’m glad we have a season that helps move our hearts and minds in that direction. My wife and I were talking this morning about how blessed we […]

‘Old Fuss and Feathers’ was a namesake

    

The older you get, the more you want to know about your family’s history – or at least I do. More and more, I have a desire to know my physical as well as my spiritual lineage. How far back does my faith go within my family? I think both of these are productive journeys […]
