NLC Life Group: The God I Never Knew…


Since Donna and I have been at New Life Church, we've hosted & co-lead small groups w/ some other great couples but we've never actually led a group on our own so we are very excited about this semester. We've chosen 'The God I Never Knew' by Robert Morris as our curriculum and having spent a few hours this evening previewing it, I'm pretty excited.  If you're not familiar w/ this series, … [Read more...]

Random Thoughts on Back to School…


I wish I had a dollar for every back to school picture I've seen posted by friends with kiddos the past two or three days, and don't get me wrong, I'm totally that guy nowadays! I'm constantly blowing up instagram everytime my kiddo breaks wind or does something cool. The other day my good friend Arlton shared a video on Facebook that really got me to thinking (see video below). To This Day … [Read more...]

Update: The Intersection of Donaghey & Favre!!

city seal

Well, my snarky video on YouTube about the intersection of Donaghey & Favre (see below) has gotten the attention of the city council and the mayor as well as several other citizens who have emailed, left comments, etc. I regret not approaching some of my friends on the city council w/ this issue because they sincerely do care about Conway and two board members have already reached out to me, … [Read more...]

A Life / Business Lesson on Control That I’m Anxious to Share w/ My Son One Day…


Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath. - James 1:19 I did something I rarely do today, I lost my cool over something today w/ someone and went on a rant & for lack of a better term "stood my ground". I typically don't like this, I'm not what you would consider a confrontational person but you can ask those close to me, when I've had enough - I've had enough. This wasn't … [Read more...]

Back from Vacation 2013 (Panama City)

As I mentioned the other day, my parents had been planning our vacation this year for over a year now, well... pretty much when Spencer came into our lives. I have to admit, I probably had more fun last week than I've had in a long time. I didn't get to do any fishing this year like I had enjoyed in years past like Catching Kingfish & Dolphin Fish in Destin (2008) and Shark Fishing in Hilton … [Read more...]

Tiny Toes in the Sand…

So when I was a kid we never really went to the beach, we always would go to our family place in Heber Springs for a week, possibly trek our way up to either Dogpatch or Silver Dollar City for a day or two and that was our vacation. Wasn't ever a big deal for me, we always had fun. Fast forward to the present, I'm a daddy now, my parents are grandparents. A lot has changed, my folks have been … [Read more...]

Prayers for Moore, Oklahoma

It's hard to imagine anything worse than Joplin or Tuscaloosa, but I think it's safe to say that Moore, Oklahoma will now be the deadliest tornado on record, the death toll this morning is reported to be at 91 (many of those are children). It's safe to say that that number is fluid at this point as search & recovery continues today. One thing that sticks out to me this morning is that I've … [Read more...]

Proud Father of a Child Superstar!

Okay, so I'm sitting in a high school gymnasium wire-framing a website with about a hundred or so actors all in costume waiting for their scene to be called out over the loudspeaker. It's a pretty cool experience to say the least. Spencer has had a blast this morning getting to know the rest of the cast and the crew. I just had a guy come over and introduce himself as Spencer's movie dad, we … [Read more...]

Changes: Moving Into New Office!

This has been a pretty crazy week around here... As a lot of you are already aware, up until this past week I've had what a lot of people would consider an awesome run. I've been able to work from home, probably 80% of the time, for the past 7 years now. I've had the awesome privilege of working in my pajamas, spending time w/ my awesome, smoking hot wife, and for the past year or so, playing w/ … [Read more...]

Updated: Spencer’s Big Break…

Okay, so here's something that just totally came out of left field today. I've been going back and forth w/ a representative from the movie, 'Greater: The Brandon Burlsworth Story', and long story short, Spencer is going to be in the movie!!! He's going to be playing the role of baby Aaron, which is Brandon's nephew. If you don't know the Brandon Burlsworth story, you most likely live out of the … [Read more...]
