Email World

I spend many hours each week in email world. This is what I call the zone that I get into when I am answering some of the questions we get from our website at NewSpring. We see a lot of “interesting” questions, but we get plenty of great questions also. I love getting questions that make me think and challenge me on how I represent Jesus to others. Here are 2 great questions I received recently from someone who is an honest seeker of the truth. Enjoy!

Waffle House brings families together

I have a confession to make. I love Waffle House! Their coffee is ok; I like hash browns scattered, smothered, and covered; and their waffles are good.

Peyton is my 4 year old and we are best buddies. Many times on Friday mornings, Peyton and I get up early and let mommy and his sister sleep in, and we go and have a date at Waffle House. This is usually followed by a trip to the gym to burn off the 15 added pounds I received from the combination of grease, calories, and wonderful tasty goodness that is the Waffle House.

Why talk about Marriage?

Why talk about Marriage? I have asked myself that question a lot as I have been thinking about starting this blog. I am by no means an expert on the subject like James Dobson and Dennis Rainey. I have not been married as long as many people that will read this (Suzanne and I have been married for 7 1/2 years). I am not the perfect husband (I know Suzanne is shocked to read that).

They talked me into it

Today is Tuesday July 24, 2007. My friends Ken Wilson and Joe Sangl have finally persuaded me to start blogging my thoughts on Marriage, preparing for Marriage, care ministry, and all the questions I answer regularly as a part of my job at NewSpring. This should be fun!
