Living life to higher standards

Last week I talked a little about Coach John Wooden, the legendary basketball coach at UCLA from the 1950s through the 1970s. The reason I had Coach on my mind was that I was reading a book about him and the seven principles by which he lived his life.

God wants us to be real

Writing this column is always a joy for me. I consider it a privilege to share the gospel with others, and I do not take it lightly when people take the time to listen to what I have to say. As a result, I am thrilled when I receive feedback regarding something I have written or shared. It lets me know that people understand what I am saying and that it has touched their life in some way.

Toddlers don't always need nap time

Q: Over the holidays, our 28-month-old daughter stopped napping. A couple of days we were so busy with Christmas that a nap simply was not possible. Now, we put her in her crib for her to nap, and she spends about one and a half to two hours in there, wide awake, playing and talking to herself, and then we take her out. I know we cannot force her to sleep, but is there some way we can get her to want to sleep and take a nap again?

Seek the Lord's kingdom in life

If you read my column regularly, you realize that I enjoy basketball a great deal. I have played, coached, refereed and watched since I was about 6 years old. When you speak of basketball coaches, no matter the level, one name stands above all of the rest: John Wooden.

Don't talk yourself out of going to church

I hear it all the time: "I am spiritual. I just don't go to church." Or, "I believe in God. I just can't handle how church people act." They are some of the most common explanations people offer to me when I ask them about their spiritual lives. Another version of this is: "Why do I need to go to church? God loves me as I am. I can worship Him (Actually, they seldom use that phrase.) and I can experience Him anywhere."

Make the most important decision of your life

There was a time when I could eat anything, at any time and lots of it, without any repercussions at all. In high school, I probably consumed 3,000 or more calories a day during basketball season.
