Better Than Before

Olive Aneno was born in a region of Northern Uganda terrorized by the Lord’s Resistance Army. Although she grew up in unimaginable poverty, she had a grandfather who loved her very much. He took her to church, and when she was five years old, he tried to get her into school. The entrance test was [...]

Make That U-turn!

Not long ago, my wife, Kim, and I used the GPS on her phone while looking for a Chick-fil-A in a new city. We were cruising down the road and this really sweet lady's voice said, "Stay straight on this road for half a mile." We were already in the exit lane, so we took [...]

You Are Free To Go

A few years ago, my wife called to tell me she had just gotten a ticket for speeding in downtown Atlanta. On the phone, I told her how sorry I was, but I was thinking, Finally, you get to find out what it’s like! She continued, “I can’t believe this, and here’s the worst part: I [...]

Life-changing Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving Dinner is a magical meal. Something glorious happens when cooks take ingredients that would otherwise not be good and turn them into something delicious. Take carrots, for instance. No one says, “For Thanksgiving, I want carrots.” But when Grandma grates those carrots, then adds flour, sugar, eggs, and a layer of cream cheese frosting, [...]

The Worst Fishing Day Ever

Let me tell you about the worst fishing day I ever had. It was a beautiful day on the river in the north Georgia mountains. Nothing was biting, but that wasn’t what made it so bad. I was standing on the side of the river in my special spot with my fishing pole and a [...]

How A Fast Food Icon Influenced My Life

The recent social media battle between Chick-Fil-A and Popeye’s was fun to follow, but for me, Chick-Fil-A wins because of the time I got to spend with its founder, Truett Cathy, when I was a young man. I was  blessed to call him a source of wisdom in my life. In fact, much of his counsel [...]

Keep Going

It's strange to be thankful for battles, isn't it? I mean, who wants battles? Aren’t we all hoping for smooth sailing? That is, after all, what we think of when we hear the phrase “Promised Land,” right? Not necessarily. When the Children of Israel stood waiting to take the Promised Land, they were facing several [...]

Treasure Map

I remember the day I almost drowned.             I was a little guy, maybe seven or eight. Our family--my parents, my sisters, and I—was visiting friends who had a house on Lake Chatuge, just over the Georgia state line in North Carolina. We were having a picnic at a place [...]

The Antidote

Did you know that although adult elephants weigh between three and eight tons, they can be contained by being chained to a stake in the ground? It starts when the elephant is just a baby. Someone will put a chain around the elephant’s leg and attach it to a stake. A small elephant doesn’t have [...]
