Great Weekend!



This past weekend got kicked off with my daughter and I making our first snowman (or girl) of the season. That was a real joy to hang out with her. We then packed up the fam and traveled to Gettysburg to visit one of my mentors, Gerry Stoltzfoos, to enjoy some time away. Saturday we invited some of the leaders at our church to join with Gerry and his team for some training. That was a great day together. I had the chance to spend some quality time with my wife and children, as well as some friends. I had to much quality time with my youngest Colby! He decided to wake up constantly both nights and torture us. I cannot tell you how happy I am to be home and have the kids in their own beds! I look forward to sleeping tonight in my bed also! (word to the wise, don't ever purchase a nice bed, it makes going away & sleeping in another bed very difficult, I know that sounds wimpy! Those of you with nice beds know exactly what I'm talking about) Anyway, we capped our weekend by joining some friends locally for a birthday bowling party. That was a blast and my kids loved it! I love watching my kids, they really are a blessing. My wife gets prettier by the day and is a wonderful woman. I thank God for good days. We never know what tomorrow holds, but I am grateful and blessed for weekends like this past one. I hope yours was well also!

Decade Of Destiny- Year 3, GREATER 2014

Freedom Life 2014 Vision Video from Freedom Life Christian Center on Vimeo . Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is,  "GREATER,"  based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12,  "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."    2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called,  "Decade Of Destiny."   Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a

"Genesis Week" -an excerpt from my upcoming mini-book!

Here's an excerpt from one of the "Small Book, Big Difference" mini-books that I'm currently writing. It's called, "Genesis Week- Creating A Life Worth Living One Day At A Time" and will be out this summer or eventually.  ____________________________________________________________   “... God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
