My First Doctorate Class is Almost Over!

Written on October 9, 2023 – 10:46 am | by dave |

Hello friends! I have been a busy bee these past few weeks. I had many activities in my normal job and many assignments due for my Doctorate class. Not to mention, I flew out to Washington, D.C., for a speaking engagement. However, my first Doctoral class is almost ending, and I am back to enjoying […]

Where Are You?

Hello readers! I realize it’s been almost 10 months since I updated you all on what has been happening. I think that is a testament to why I am just now posting something. As I mentioned in my previous post, I took a new contract to hire position that is 100% remote in Nov. 2020 […]


Time for an update

Written on December 28, 2020 – 12:10 pm | by dave |

Well, I am finally done grading my classes for the 2020 Fall semester at Liberty University. Wow… what a year it has been. This has easily been one of the most challenging years I have ever had for many reasons. Unfortunately, it had a strong impact on my ability to perform at my best for […]

Almost a Year… What’s Going on?

Written on May 22, 2019 – 3:55 pm | by dave |

It’s hard to believe that I have not added anything to this blog in almost a year. So what exactly has been going on? Obviously more stuff than I can possibly fit into a single blog post, but I will try to hit the important notes. It’s been a heck of a busy year. The […]

DITW – The Plan versus the Prayer – July 16, 2018

Written on July 16, 2018 – 11:00 am | by dave |

Many of my thoughts as an adult are guided towards what plans I have made and what plans I need to make. As silly as it sounds, I have become the product of time rather than time being determined by me. I look at all the theoretical roads that lie before me and try my […]


DITW – Being a Christian is Not Easy – July 10, 2018

Written on July 10, 2018 – 4:20 pm | by dave |

I wish that every day of my life I had a great story about how being a Christian made my life so much easier or better but if that was the case, I would not truly absorb the magnitude of grace. Unfortunately, many of the churches out there preach some derivative of the “Prosperity Gospel” […]


DITW – Keep the Path, Despite Opposition – June 28, 2018

Written on June 28, 2018 – 12:06 pm | by dave |

The more powerful we become as people, the higher up the social stratum we climb, the more we tend to forget what brought us to where we are. I have always strived to show my appreciation to the path that led me to where I am. I started as a pizza cutter/boxer for a pizza […]


DITW – Friend of the King – June 22, 2018

Written on June 22, 2018 – 10:22 am | by dave |

I have often heard the phrase “mankind dislikes that which it does not understand” but I always thought of this as someone choosing to be scared of a technology or a cultural thing rather than understanding it. However, the more places I take my family with its special needs children and large size, I can […]


DITW – Do What is Right – June 21, 2018

Written on June 21, 2018 – 11:29 am | by dave |

There is no doubt in my mind that those who follow Christianity are prone to look strange or do things that simply don’t make sense to others around them. In fact, some of the things that my family and I do, such as housing 7 children, are weird enough on their own, but it seems […]


DITW – Holding Out on God – June 20, 2018

Written on June 20, 2018 – 9:44 am | by dave |

Last night, my wife and I┬ástarted attending a Tuesday night bible study at our new home church. It talked about community and how each of us is part of the body and have skills to use. This is certainly something that I have always felt compelled to do, use my skills to glorify God. However, […]
