It’s been 13 days since we first heard of the horrible massacre in Newtown, Connecticut. That’s right, only thirteen days. It feels like a lot longer. For the families and friends of the victims, I can’t begin to process how long those days have felt. I can only continue to pray for their healing. I’ve been reluctant to compile and share my thoughts on the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook in Newtown for two reasons: I’ve been there before. As a… Read more

I get it. Really, I do. We’re repulsed by the utter horror of the tragedy in Newtown. Our hearts ache at the thought of such insane bloodshed. I’ve already shared my own experiences with such issues and my prayer for them as a former principal who still knows and loves so many similar teachers and kids. And I have few little guys of my own. So I get our urge to make schools safer. I understand why we want to do… Read more

I knew the traditional nativity scene had issues. The three wise men who likely weren’t three and didn’t show up until two years later.  The star hovering just above the quaint wooden structure that looks more like an English countryside barn than the back end of an inn. The all-too-pristine setting after an impromptu birth. I thought I had heard it all. I even shared a take on The Christmas Message based on the traditional interpretation just a few days ago. I… Read more

I recently completed twelve years of service growing and leading a Christian school of over 400 students. I served as the Principal for many years until stepping away just a few months ago to… Read more

It’s not a word I like to use often. Maybe you’re different. It seems some people are.  They use it all the time. The dreaded word? Help. Or better yet — Help! I need somebody!
