We took our morning Bible study out of the house for a special breakfast today. Hot chocolate. Omelets. It started out with so much excitement and devolved into wrangling hyper kids and nagging as discipline (don't know why I do it....it is never effective.) I think my hopes were just a wee bit too high. As I huffed to the car afterward I found myself thinking "I can't believe I dragged all this stuff out in five degree weather for THIS." The errands afterward were peppered with more disobedience (theirs) and exasperation and short tempered sighs (mine). After naps we all felt worlds better and they snuggled in bed with me as we chatted about plans for the evening and even talked about death and dying (no context or preparation for those humdinger questions!). And in the simple joy of those snuggles I re-realized (because I am a slow learner) that our morning of chaos *was* #familydiscipleship. God uses these times when my perfect breakfast dreams are dashed to grow us all in different ways. I am praising him for working on me in spite of me. Asking him for forgiveness now and thanking him for teaching me this lesson over and over as long as I need it. Also humbled that my sweet girls wake up and give me a new start each day. 💖

Our dinner conversation about the end of Romans 8 evolved into a pretty fun game. We call it Even When.
Person #1: Even when we're scared...
Person #2: God loves us. Even when we're lost...
Person #1: God loves us. 💗💖💗
This went on for quite some time. Praise hands for #familydiscipleship in the middle of all manner of mess. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 #dishescanwait #nothingcanseparateus #notevendirtydishes

I just want to take a minute to thank the Lord. Today I’ve had so many reasons to rejoice. I shared in the same excitement and joy as Pastor Steve watching the signers today during singing. I think about the fact that after next weekend CBC will have had the Word preached by four different men so far this year. I was blown away by how many people are interested in serving on the fellowship team, an area that I’m convinced is crucial to strengthening the ministry of our church. I think of individuals serving from the heart, not willing to let the frustrations of this life sideline them from Kingdom ministry. And finally I think of the blessing of playing board games and eating Rice Krispy treats with my wife and kids. Bless the Lord, Oh my Soul & all that is within me, bless His holy name!

One of my biggest pet peeves is how many children's Bible storybooks have Jesus and everyone illustrated as white. It shocks me that in 2018 this is ignorance we are willing to pass on to our children in #familydiscipleship of all things. Love this title though! Yes people are illustrated as white in some stories but there is a good enough mix to expand kids' understanding about what people in the Bible looked like. This can happen on a subconscious level with younger kids and be a conversation starter with older kids. I also love how many atypical stories are included. I see this as being useful in a devotional sense more than Bible teaching but still very valuable. And of course the illustrations by kids are just fantastic and inspiring to readers. Adding this to our wishlist! #childrensbible #nomorewhiteJesus #globalchristianity #allthechildrenoftheworld

Divorce, death or for whatever reason there are many kids without a dad around. If you have the chance, do what you can do and influence any kids you can in a positive manner. It will make a difference

This morning the kids and I were doing some character training and reading about keeping our promises. At the end I gave an example of when you say, "5 minutes then I'll brush my teeth Daddy" or "5 minutes, Mom, and then I'll get dressed", and you don't do it, it's like breaking our promises to mommy and daddy. John says..."ohhhhh... then you break promises all the time. You say we are going to do something then we don't" OUCH!!!!😵😂😱❤ I got called out by my 5 year old y'all! Ah! LOL.
So we all agreed....we are going to practice being Promise Keepers together and keep each other accountable. ❤ #motherhood #promisekeepers #familydiscipleship

In many ways communication is a lost skill. What should be primarily natural is becoming almost an abstract art form. I've read many articles in the last week dealing with loneliness, friendships, and relationships (or the lack thereof in modern society. The general consensus seems to be that between technology and the way that we arrange our lives nowadays folks more than ever are inept at forging and maintaining relationships. Most of us have some desire for community and through that relationships with other people. Many believe this is the number one reason that many sports writers credit for the success of Crossfit! If we want to make and maintain good relationships the first step is going to have to be ACTUALLY SPENDING TIME WITH OTHER PEOPLE! That should go without saying, but let's be honest we tend to live as if everything is someone else's responsibility. The road is damaged? "They" should fix it. Power's out? "They" should fix it. I can't pay my bill? "They" should take care of this. I don't have any friends? "They" should come talk to me/invite me/include me. If we want to get things done we're going to have to learn to be the "they" we're looking for...but anyways...If we want to make and maintain good relationship we're going to have to become better communicators. A while back I preached a sermon called "Four Rules of Communication" based on the principles of the same name that come from Ephesians 4 as explained in the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC). It's less than 25 minutes and will be a good start in seeking to become a better communicator. I'll put the link in my bio and it is on my Facebook page.

The reason to avoid debt is because it hinders one’s ability to serve God. Your kids need the lens to avoid debt but it must be rooted in loving Him and the advancement of the Kingdom. Hating debt because it isn’t a good financial retirement decision is rooted in earthly possessions. Gotta keep your eyes above.

These verses really hit me this morning. Moses is smack dab in the middle of a miraculous situation. God is literally speaking to him through a bush that is engulfed with flame yet it was not consumed. God has just given him two miraculous signs to authenticate his mission. But what does Moses do? He looks at himself, his past, his limitations and is to afraid to act in faith and obedience. How often do we do the same? Someone makes a negative comment that sticks with us for years, or we fail at something trivial and refuse to ever try again. Then, when opportunities come our way we shrink back. Someone better than me needs to do it. Someone who hasn’t failed or has the “it” that I don’t have. We worry what will so and so say or think. We fear that we might lose popularity or position. How much of life and ministry is left on the table because we are too afraid to move out of our comfortable status quo? As Christians we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and given new life so that we can glorify God by doing the good works he prepared for us beforehand that we should walk in them. It’s not about what I can or cannot do, it’s about what God has gifted me to do. Instead of being paralyzed by fear we should step out in faith saying with the Apostle Paul “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me”. I can face hunger, I can face plenty, I can face abundance, I can face need whatever the circumstances, God has provided everything that I need to serve Him as He directs. And He does direct. Is fear keeping you from obedience? Confess, repent, and step out in faith. Did you notice the promise in verse 12? God promised to go with Moses, to go with his mouth, and to teach Him what to speak. God’s sending into service is never separated from His presence and never without His equipping.

Nuts are a healthy snack but if we eat too many they can work against weight loss. I make sure to measure my portions and put them in the little snack size ziploc bags.

Almonds are my favorite and if I’m not careful - before I know it I could have eaten a whole bag. Just incase you were wondering, a handful of nuts is equal to about 1 oz., which corresponds to a standard serving size on many packages of nuts.

Do you watch your portions?

Slow Cooker Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes

Ingredients
* 5 in chicken thighs bone- skin-on
* kosher salt
* black pepper
* 6 red potatoes quartered
* 5 cloves Garlic chopped
* 1 tablespoon fresh thyme chopped
* 1/2 cup shaved Parmesan Cheese

Instructions
1. In your slow cooker aluminum insert (do not heat a ceramic insert, use a skillet instead).
2. Heat the skillet/insert on medium high heat.
3. Season the chicken to taste with Kosher salt and black pepper (I used 1/2 teaspoon of Kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper).
4. Add the chicken thighs skin side down and brown for 5-7 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
5. Add in the potatoes and stir amongst the chicken fat in the pan.
6. Add in the chopped garlic and thyme and season as desired with salt and pepper (again I used 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper).
7. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
8. Add half the Parmesan chicken and cook on high for 15 minutes.
9. Serve and top with remaining Parmesan cheese.
10. If your slow cooker runs hot or you use inserts and the chicken steams instead of crisps, finish it in the oven at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes to crisp up the potatoes and the chicken.
