5 reasons we take a family vacation every year

Our bags have been packed and we are waiting for our ride to the airport. Once there we will fly to Vegas to hang out with our dear family friends from Switzerland (and see some kind of cirque du soleil show) before we make the 4.5 hour drive to San Diego to have our "official" family vacation.

10 lessons I'm learning from being the parent of a teenager

1.  It's not as easy as it looks on paper.

I had parenting all figured out before I had kids. I watched the videos, read the books and even preached a few sermons on it. Then my wife and I had children and all but a handful of key principles blew away like dust (from the top of a teen boy's desk) in the wind.

Congratulations to Debbie Bresina on 20 years at Dare 2 Share!

I'll never forget when Debbie came into the church office where I used to pastor and asked me if there was any way she could volunteer.

I miss you mom

This is the 11th Mother's Day I've celebrated without my mom. She went to be with the Lord after a painful battle against cancer. My mom was a tough and tender lady. She was so tough that many people couldn't see past it. But those who knew her best saw

How "The Fredrick Factor" can open up evangelistic opportunities

On the way home from Universal Studios with my family on Friday night we encountered a one-of-a-kind shuttle driver. His name was Fredrick. He was great, not because of the quality of his driving, but because his entertainment skills and over-the-top love of life.

He took a bunch of rain-soaked,

How I put together a Rite of Passage event for my son

I know there are entire ministries dedicated to doing Rite of Passage events for boys turning to men. Although I'm not personally familiar with any of the ministries (and therefore can't recommend one specifically) I did attend one for a friend's son about a decade ago or so. I remember

My daughter's way of explaining the GOSPEL

This summer, while waiting for a train with my family, I helped my daughter memorize the GOSPEL acrostic that we developed for teenagers at Dare 2 Share. It is comprised of six simple sentences that sum up the message of the Bible and the good news of Jesus:
