Are we a reflection of God?


I was raised in a Catholic home growing up. It gave me a great foundation for my faith. So if you had asked me about being a Christian, I would have said yes. If you had asked me about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, I would have said I had one. If you asked me if I was…

Hero (he·ro)


Our church was allowing the kids to dress up like their favorite Hero this past Sunday. I was curious what the girls would say about who they would choose. I wasn’t sure they would know what a hero is. So I asked them. Now I know my youngest wouldn’t know, but my 7 year old took less than a second…

Was That A Banana? Rude People @ Church


  We attend a Mega Church in Alpharetta Georgia, North Point Community Church. So try and imagine the traffic when you try to leave. Now my wife and I have found a quick way out. Most of the time, we get out of Church in only about five minutes. Some people have been stuck for about an hour, but that’s…

How Do You Tell Your Family…You’re Pregnant?


First let me say, loudly, we are not pregnant.  The title is a teaser.  Sorry family.  Although, you never know what can happen.  Our youngest daughter Madison is almost two years old now.  She is such a happy baby.  When my wife was just a few weeks pregnant, we decided to wait a little to tell everyone.  We told only…

Great Church Alert!

Pastor Dave gave a very moving service for my parents, one I will remember. For those of you with kids, and are looking for a place to best feed your…
