Happy Days

Happy Days

One of the absolutely most happy days in a man’s life is the birth of one of his children.

I am fortunate to have the amazing privilege and responsibility of having two children so far, a boy and a girl!

Alyssa Faith Schultz was born January 16, 2007 weighing in at 6lbs. 10 oz. and being 19″ long. Blue-eyed and beautiful face, she reminds me of her mother. Getting to name her was one of my finest moments. It’s when your chest sticks out about 3 more inches and you just want to bottle the feeling of pride and excitement that this woman–my wife–gave birth to such a beautiful little girl!

Where Am I Going?
What Am I Going to Do with My Life?

The Bible teaches that the greatest commandment God has given is to love Him and to love others as ourselves. The last command Jesus gave to His followers was to “make disciples of all nations.”

So… How are you going to love God, love others and make disciples?
