Oh, the Places God Will Take You!

September 18, 2017 You know, sometimes I think God isn’t listening when I tell him the plans I have for my life. I tell God what I think should happen, I write it down on a five-year life plan spreadsheet, but things rarely end up going the way I’ve planned. It’s almost as if He…

Hope in a Time of Fear

September 11, 2017 Hey Brother, As the years go by and we press further and further away from that tragic day in 2001, it’s easy for us to forget how big of an emotional and sociological impact September 11th had on our country. Suddenly we lived in a culture of fear. We even had color…

Finding Miracles at the Heart of the Storm

Hey Brother, My family lives in Houston. As I write this, the area is experiencing the worst flooding in recorded history. 6.5 million people are affected by the storm. Hundreds of thousands of homes have been destroyed, and the water is still rising. Some people may look at this disaster and ask, “Where is God?…

Can’t We All Just Get Along?

August 28, 2017 Hey Brother, I woke up today and checked my social media feed. Judging by the headlines of the articles being shared, you’d think the U.S. was in another civil war. There is so much division in our country, and I’m sad to say that I see just as many Christians as non-Christians…

August 21, 2017 Hey Brother, Well, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks in our country. There has been a lot of anger and a lot of hate. With everything going on, it seems like a good time to tell you a story. It’s a story about something I hate very much… traffic. Once upon…

Knights of Courtly Love

August 14, 2017 Hey Brother, I don’t know about you, but sometimes I think it would be cool to be a knight. You get to wear armor, ride a horse, swing a sword, and rescue damsels in distress. Okay let’s be honest, rescuing damsels is great and all, but it’s mainly about the sword. Now,…

Toxic Masculinity

August 7, 2017 Hey Brother, As we go forward in our daily walks as Christian men, we often struggle with what it means to be “a real man.” There is a big difference between what the world says we should be and what God says in the Bible. It doesn’t help that in today’s world…

Coffee Cup or China?

Hey Brother, As men, we are often told to be strong, brave, and tough. “Women and children first!” because we are expected to be resilient enough to survive. We are expected to sacrifice ourselves for the weaker women and children. That level of sacrifice, the strong giving themselves up for the weak, is something to…

Brethren in Unity

July 24, 2017 Hey Brother, You may have noticed some changes on the Family Radio blog. Mainly that there are now two of them! If you didn’t notice this, maybe it’s about time you should listen to the women in your life when they say, “You never pay attention.” We all have a tendency to…
