Communication Goal #3

My third goal for the communication emphasis involves teaching/communicating through video media. Like the other goals in this emphasis, this is not an entirely new method, but my goal is to leverage it consistently.


  • I have, for some time (though very sporadically lately), made “Coffee Break Devotionals” via Facebook Live. I intend to set a goal to do this consistently twice per week.
  • I will produce a welcome video for the home page of our church website that introduces people to our family.
  • I will produce a short, simple gospel presentation video to deploy via social media, church and personal websites, and my business cards (via qr code).


  • personal and church Facebook pages and Twitter accounts
  • Church website,
  • Personal website,


  • The video devotionals will be monitored by my mentor and discipleship partners.
  • The welcome video will be produced and deployed by February 1, 2019.
  • The gospel presentation video will be deployed by January 15, 2019.

I Choose You

If you have made one of those lifetime promises (that we usually call wedding vows), go back and listen to this great song again. What does choosing your partner look like today?

Take The World

I’m enamored with the intimate stylings of Johnnyswim. In case you’re not acquainted, this is a husband and wife duo that makes some really great music together (and some absolutely beautiful children). Their song, “Take The World,” is a breath of courage to me in a season of weariness and desire to keep growing in my marriage.

Like We Do

I don’t expect anyone to pattern their marriage after mine or compare theirs with ours. We have our own unique way of doing “I do” together. I’m not suggesting ours is better. I’m just saying it is ours… and it’s a work in progress, a relationship still growing, refining, reforming.

Higher And Higher

My beloved has a way of encouraging me, helping me, motivating me to reach for more. Just like Jack Nicholson’s neurotic character blurted out in the romantic comedy, As Good As It Gets, “You make me want to be a better man!”
