Monday Morning Thoughts

I spoke again yesterday at Creekside.  It was fun.  But if I’m completely honest it wasn’t my best prepared message.  I had a terrible time writing an ending.  All week that was my biggest struggle.  But I also feel like I had too much content.  But I was talking about teenagers and adolescence and parenting. Continue reading “Monday Morning Thoughts”

Preaching again this Sunday

Overwhelmed with Parenting

This parenting Series at creekside has been really great.  Especially since I am a new-ish parent.  I’m always learning.  I’m preaching this sunday and next sunday.  And I am being overwhelmed by how big a job parenting is. I’m bt no means an expert, but God has so much wisdom to give us.  I gottaContinue reading “Overwhelmed with Parenting”
