About Baseball and Love

Peace family, even if you feel like a scared little-leaguer batting with his eyes closed, you are still loved, regardless of your performance. Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in all that we have to do, as well as our own inability to do it perfectly, that we have trouble remembering that God loves us merely  because He wants to, and not because of anything that we have or haven't done.

Remember Who You Are

Lion King Remember

Peace family, there is an African proverb that says “The daughter of a lion is also a lion.” (Of course, this logic applies to sons as well.) If you are feeling weak, disrespected, insecure, unloved, or unprotected today, I want to encourage you to remember who your Heavenly Father is. The Bible calls Jesus “The […]
