The Boys Got In Trouble

Growing up, did you have a squad? I did. My mom would call us a motley crew. There was Benji, Chris, Justin, and me. We thought we owned the town. We slept at each other's houses almost every weekend and played PlayStation until sunrise. We built dirt jumps and BMX courses in the woods to practice our skills because we all wanted to qualify for the X Games. We terrorized the neighborhood screaming down the streets on minibikes. There is more, but, honestly, I'm a little scared to put it in writing. You never know who might read this blog.   One of our craziest exploits happened on a Sunda ..read more

How Do You Want to Be Remembered?

Death is the one reality we will all face, but we don't really like to think about it. Some people will not attend funerals or even talk about the possibility of death. Yet, while we try not to linger on our deaths, we all want to leave a legacy. We want to live a life we're proud of, and we hope people will remember us fondly... Unlike the two subjects of this week's email.   In my research this week, I found some people who went out in the stupidest ways possible.   How Many Pallets Does It Take to Change a Lightbulb?Take, for instance, a warehouse employee of Tanarumono Logistics ..read more

Some Father's Day Laughs

Children are wonderful. Some of the greatest joys I have ever experienced have been because of my kids. But let's face it, being a parent is hard. I don't want to scare off any of those who are unmarried or don't have kids, but if the Lord allows you the opportunity to have children you are blessed. But no one said it's easy (The best things in life are always hard).   You know I am a big meme guy. Well, today, my blog is a little different. In honor of Father's Day, I'm going to share some of my favorite parenting and dad memes. I hope they give you a laugh. David was not only the ..read more

You Either Die a Hero Or...

The greatest superhero movie ever is The Dark Knight, and it's not even close. One of the most memorable lines from the movie comes from the ace district attorney Harvey Dent. Dent says, “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.”   Harvey Dent was the hope of Gotham City. He was the legal hero that Batman could never be. Harvey was supposed to turn crime-riddled Gotham City around. The craziest part was that he was actually making a difference, and this put him in the crosshairs of the worst people.   At one point in the movie, Harvey and his girl ..read more

We Make Plans... God Laughs?

If you grew up in church you are probably familiar with the old church van. I am not sure if it was a denominational requirement or just built into the fabric of the universe, but every church had one. I am sure they were bought new at some point, but you never saw a new one. They were all barely running death traps that ran on hopes and prayers. Every ride may be your last. If you think I'm exaggerating, there was a time when insurance companies stopped insuring these vans for churches. Things changed as I got older. I went from being the kid in the back of the van praying we would live to ..read more

The Naked Truth About Worship

King David is one of the most important figures in the Bible. There are several well-known stories about him, and not all of them are good. But one of the characteristics of David that God treasured most was that he was a man after God's own heart. This made him a worshiper.   While worship is more than music, it is not less than music, and David was a prolific songwriter. He wrote almost half of the Psalms; the songbook of the ancients. And those are just the ones that charted! It's possible he wrote many more than that.   Few people in the Scriptures are more qualified to give us a ..read more

Google Maps Changed the Game

Yesterday, Allie and I were reminiscing about how half our honeymoon was spent driving around lost. Seriously, my sense of direction is admittedly, not great. To complicate the problem, we had to look at actual physical maps made of paper to get where we were trying to go. Honestly, I have more in common with a pirate of the Caribbean than an iPad kid. You see, we were married one year before the first iPhone and before Google Maps was a thing. I honestly don't know how we got anywhere. Google Maps changed the game.   Today, if you need to go anywhere, get the address, type it in Google M ..read more

Is That What Mom Actually Said?

Did your parents ever ask you to deliver a message to your siblings? Maybe they wanted the trash taken out or their room cleaned. Whatever the reason, I was never more drunk on power than when I carried a message from my parents.   My mom would say, "Ivey, tell your brother to come empty his section of the dishwasher." I would gleefully get up, stomp to the room he was in, and deliver the message. While Mom's message was matter-of-fact, I always added a little... flavor. I would deliver the message something like, "BEN! Mom says to get your butt into the kitchen and unload the dishwasher ..read more

I wanted to tell you about an amazing opportunity that came my way. You probably will not believe this, but a real-life prince emailed me! Me, of all people. He said he chose me because of my sterling reputation and impressive resume. I was so honored. I was stunned to learn that he had run into some trouble, and to protect his fortune, he needed to transfer all of his money to the US. This is where I was able to help him. He told me that if I transferred $3500 USD to him, his account would be unfrozen. This is when it got real. Because of my troubles, he would give me $1,000,000! How could a ..read more

Where to Find Real Life

As a freshman in college, I had the opportunity to intern for the youth ministry at a church in South Carolina. I was only there a few months before the youth minister left the church. The church was lucky enough to have the head of the Youth Ministry department at the local Bible college become their interim youth pastor. I was officially getting an on-the-job education from an expert. I assumed he would focus on changing the way the church did youth ministry. I expected games, outreach events, mission trips, youth camps, etc., and we did indeed do some of those things. However, I was surpris ..read more
