Where Do YOU Want To Go?

OXYGEN Volume 21

When I meet someone new and the conversation turns to my place of employment, the answer “Summer’s Best Two Weeks” usually raises eyebrows and draws a few questions.  “So is that something you do year-round?  How long do you think you’ll do that?” Trying to explain SB2W and my job in anything less than a half-hour is a challenge for ...

Run WITH Me

pittsburgh-marathon

A few years ago I signed myself up to run a half-marathon with the dream of starting a semi-professional career in distance running.  I had months to train and an able body that was up for the challenge.  Then reality set in.  The truth was I had very little time or desire to put the miles in and train properly.  ...

YOLO!

YOLO (1)

YOLO is the abbreviation that this generation is littered with.  The idea that “You Only Live Once” gives reasoning for acting brash, reckless, chasing after instantaneous pleasure.  Being a part of this generation myself, I have felt the energy and enthusiasm that comes with this Carpe Diem attitude.  It can be fun and exciting!  It is a motto for some ...

Parents: Pray and Point

164ASP12811087

The business of cultivating a child’s heart for God is, to say the least, a daunting task. It reminds me of the verse, “Who is adequate for these things?” (2 Corinthians 2:16).  I have seen parents who have “done it right” and yet their children have had no desire to follow God. And I have seen children from broken homes ... Read More »

True Love

candyheart (1)

True Love.  Our world has all kinds of ideas about what true love looks like.  This years’ best Superbowl commercial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQB7QRyF4p4) showed us what puppy love is all about.  Chic flicks reveal what romantic love is “supposed” to look like.  But the best demonstration of true love comes from Jesus.  Jesus tells us, “Greater love has no one than this, ...

As a member of the full-time SB2W staff, I’m not just an occasional writer for the blog … but also a weekly follower.  I love being encouraged to live out my faith daily to God’s Glory.  Last week’s edition about Peyton Manning and Russell Wilson caught my eye because their was so much hype about the NFL’s #1 Defense vs. ...

This Sunday more than 100 million people will watch the Super Bowl between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.  Many football fans are excited to see a match-up between the #1 offense in the NFL, the Broncos, and the #1 defense, the Seahawks.  And just like the two teams are known for their dominance in different facets of football, ...

Don’t Be a Fool

mr-t

It seems to me that many of my life’s most foolish moments have revolved around fire.  For example many warning labels like, “Contents under pressure, may be explosive”, went unheeded.  A second example involved watching a friend turn on their gas grill, then realizing they forgot matches.  They retrieved the matches from indoors and upon returning proceeded to light the ...

Confession and Forgiveness: A Fresh Start to a New Year!

NEW-YEARS

Starting a new year is always an awesome time to readjust, realign, and recommit in many areas of our lives. I have found that in this new year I have been thinking about one of the most foundational truths of the Gospel: forgiveness and love. It’s caused me to want to renew my understanding and rededicate myself to following the ... Read More »
