College. It can be one of the greatest times in a young person’s life but it can also be one of the most difficult. Approximately 70% of students who are active in their faith step away from their faith during their college years. Why does this happen? What are some of the traps and difficulties our students face? How can we support our students and help them stand strong upon the foundation of Jesus?
It’s a new year and many people will say this is the time to make a new you! But truth is, you are probably pretty good already and you just need to make a few changes. But change is hard!
Merry Christmas! Tis the Season to be Jolly! But why? Is it the presents? The parties? The food? The lights? No! It’s because we are celebrating the birth of our Savior! Jesus! Emmanuel! Messiah! You have heard the story of Jesus’ birth many times, but do you know the whole story?
Work. School. Parenting. Marriage. Sports. Band. Church. Homework. Housework. Be here. Be there. Do this. Do that. And on and on and on. Seems to never stop. And now it’s the holidays and even more is going to be demanded of me! How do I keep focused? How do I not stress? How do I keep God first?

Salt Bowl. Tradition. Benton. Bryant. High School Football. 38,000 people.
For a long time there has been a rivalry between two neighboring cities. Benton and Bryant; cities separated by just a few miles. The rivalry goes across all sports but the biggest game every year is the Salt Bowl. A game between the High School Football teams. The Salt Bowl is played at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock, so enough seating is available. Weeks of preparation and excitement, a day of tailgating and family fun. Even those who are not normally fans of football turn out for this great event. Through the first half an exciting game was playing out, and a wonderful halftime show by both schools was enjoyed by all.
Then came the third quarter: A fight broke out, not between the two schools, but with someone in the stands. Then the shout… “Gun!”
For as long as I’ve attended concerts, those passes hanging around the necks of stage crews, production techs, security and other concert officials have always intrigued and beckoned me: Getting to go “behind the scenes” where so few are allowed, flashing your badge like it’s on loan from the FBI to allow you access to coveted information, famous artists, and the “inside” scoop.
