The Cubs are in the World Series!

Still elated. Still can’t completely believe it. Still replaying this clip, over and over.

The Chicago Cubs…yes, the Chicago Cubs…the Cubs…are in…the World Series!


Can’t wait to see what happens. It’s going to be a lot of fun!

Go Cubs, Go!

It Is Well

“Seas that are shaken and stirred,
can be calmed and broken for my regard.
Through it all, through it all, my eyes are on You.
Through it all, through it all, it is well.
It is well with my soul.”

God never leaves us, regardless of what happens in this life.

I’m so thankful for that.

Just wanted to put this out there as a reminder, in case you’re going through a tough time right now. He’s there. Even when it doesn’t seem like it, He’s there.

Thank you for loving us, Jesus!

Fun with Fatherhood – Getaway with the Guys


Here are a few photos from the recent camping/canoeing/fishing trip I took with my sons.




It was a great time. Had fun talking with them and hanging out, plus enjoying the beautiful scenery.

It’s become an annual event, a tradition of sorts – we go to the same place, get the same campsite. It’s a lot of fun.

What are some of your traditions with your kids? Or, ones you shared as a kid with your family? I’d love to hear from you. Please share in the comments section, below.

Have a great day!

Cubs Win!

My gosh, this was a crazy game.

I was doing a fair amount of doubting before the comeback for the ages in the 9th inning. What a rally…what a finish! The Cubs showed a lot of heart out there.

This lifelong fan is beyond excited for what’s happening and what (hopefully) might be to come in this year’s playoffs.

Go Cubs, Go!

Help for Haiti

Hurricane Matthew left an incredible path of destruction in many areas during the past week, particularly in Haiti.

Click here to see more images like the one above, from Jérémie, Haiti.

Hundreds of people died in that country. Dozens have died in the United States. It was a powerful storm and the damage has been done.

Now, it’s time to help.

“How can I help?”

For starters, pray. Pray for the safety and health of everyone who survived the storms. Cholera is a growing concern in Haiti and it is hard to say what lies in the debris left behind. Pray that hope will overcome despair and that relief supplies will be made available to the people who desperately need them.

Donate to charitable efforts; just make sure the charity you choose will be spending the money specifically for storm relief before sending the donation.

No doubt there will be mission trips to Haiti to help the people, there. That is something to consider as well.

Thank you to everyone, everywhere who has helped people in the wake of this storm. Praying for everyone in Haiti and all places impacted by Hurricane Matthew. God’s still in control! No hurricane, no anything is bigger than He is.
