Yesterday was Father’s Day. I didn’t get much of a chance to celebrate it with my family this year due to the church camp season. I’m at camp right now with my son, Titus, and a few other boys from our church.
I stumbled across this video over the weekend. It’s good enough to share here. Enjoy!
As a father of five, with another due around the first of the year, this is amusingly accurate. I can’t even begin to imagine all the things I’ve missed out on because my finances and resources went to family events or clothes or dental work or camp tuitions or… And you know what? I really don’t care what I may have missed. I have an incredible family.
Todd, from Familyman Ministries, calls this phenomenon “dad cool”. If you’re a father, I recommend that you subscribe to his newsletter. He always has some great stuff going on.

May has come and gone, and with it our big move to Florida. We arrived on May 2, and have spent the last few weeks settling in and getting unpacked. And… we still have a lot of boxes to open. I really dislike that part of moving…
As a result, I haven’t written as much in the past few weeks as I would have liked to write. However, things are settling into a great routine, so that will begin to change. And I am ready to drop back into a consistent writing schedule.
In case you missed them, here are my top seven posts for the month of May:
- The Difference Between Purpose, Vision, and Mission
- The Maniac And The Messiah
- Tips For Becoming More Consistent In Your Bible Reading
- Book Review – The Fourth Fisherman by Joe Kissack
- Why You Need To Develop A Philosophy Of Ministry
- The Battle For A Biblical Worldview
- Memorize Scripture With Me!
Only one of this month’s top posts was written this month, and it was also the only book review to make the list. Everything else has been available on my site for a while, and being read time after time. That excites me because I want my material to be timeless and helpful continually. That seems to be happening with several posts.
I am a bit surprised that the post about our move to Florida didn’t make the list this month. I guess that just means that everyone already know by now. Good!
My favorite post written in May was The Importance Of Passion. This is written partly as a rebuttal to the general state of apathy that exists in much of America today, and partly in response to a need I see in leadership circles. I enjoyed it, and will have a few more tying into it in the near future.
I also have a couple of guest post opportunities coming up. Stay tuned for more info on those as they happen!
Today marks the beginning of the summer months. And with summer comes church camp and lots of activities. You may be reading about some new experiences this summer for my family and I. Enjoy the summer!
