I was invited to eat with a group of men tonight that will be speaking, attending or serving in some capacity with the “Why Me?” men’s conference in Thomaston, Georgia next Friday and Saturday. After one delicious low country boil, the men made their way down to the dock at the lake. As 14 decent sized men eased out onto this weathered dock we felt the shifts of age and the creep of time on the structure.
There have been few things in life that really impress me. But I must admit that the Teach Them Diligently Convention this year in Washington, DC has done just that! From the beautiful surroundings of the Gaylord Hotel and Resort, the perfect weather, the outstanding speakers and the awesome children’s program, I will say that I am in awe.
Hey guys! Wow and what an amazing time we are having so far. If you don’t know what is going on, we are heading up to Washington, DC for the Teach Them Diligently Convention! This is making a great road trip with the kids and the Allen family (WWW.Conversaving.com).

“Are you listening to me?” What guy has not heard that famous question before? We as men tend to have a unique ability to “tune out” what we want to not listen to.

We have attended the convention the past two years in Spartanburg, South Carolina, but with us finishing a two-year American History run, the ability to be at the convention and do a tour is just way too tempting. If you have not made up your mind to go to one of the four conventions being held across the southeast, let me give you a quick tour of what all you could expect. Continue reading →

Jesus taught us how to teach. He taught us that deep spiritual living comes through modeling and through hands-on training. This is where I think youth groups and Christian schools can kill us. So many parents believe that they can pass off their children to a charismatic youth leader.
