Top Ten Most Amazing Places (that I have seen)

Honorable Mentions: Ohio Caverns, OH           In my childhood I was mesmerized by the Ohio Caverns. I have fond memories of the times that I visited there.

Cyle’s Smiles – Avengers

I have not seen all the movies I have provided links to the pluggedin.com reviews for.  I provide the links for your ease of reference. What I have learned is that many of you just want to know what I thought of the movie and you want to know it very quickly.  So, I have devised Cyle’s Smiles. Cyle’s Smiles is my review of the […]

Christian or Follower?

What does it mean to be a Christian? I looked up the definition of the word “be” which can also be written as am, are, was, is, etc. The definition is as follows “To belong to a specified class or group.” So, to be a Christian is to basically join a club. If a person says they are a Christian, it is simply a statement […]

True Servants Serve #1

As I talk to other pastors, I realize just how difficult it has become to get volunteers to serve in ministry.  Many churches burden the same volunteers with serving, time and time again, because the task of recruiting volunteers is so difficult. On average 20% of Christians serve the Lord faithfully.  That leaves 80% of Christians uninvolved in the work of ministry.  In a church […]

Madagascar 3 Review

Did you know that lions get homesick too? All Alex can think of is getting he and his pals—Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe—back to their comfy cages in the Central Park Zoo. They’ve been off on their travels far too long. (Two movies too long, to be precise.) So they all make their way into Monte Carlo to find their […]

Tent Camping Top 10

1.  If you are the only person, amongst hundreds of RVs and campers, camping in a tent… are you poor or just stupid? 2. Refer to The Poopy Dance blog post. Don’t bring that child! 3. When planning dinner… account for the 20-25 minutes it takes for a 4 year old to roast a hot dog. 4. When the directions tell you to attach legs […]

Promethus Review

“I think they want us to come and find them.” That’s researcher Elizabeth Shaw’s conclusion when she and Charlie Holloway (her scientific and romantic partner) discover 35,000-year-old cave drawings of people surrounding a giant man pointing at six circles in the sky—drawings that match findings from a multitude of other ancient civilizations. The only question is who “they” are… read more here

Carrot Stick Encouragement

Some people talk about dangling the carrot before the horse. I don’t have carrots, but I do have Cheetos—at least they’re the same color. My family and I climbed Copperhead Summit in Black Mountain, NC. It took twice as long as it should have, because we took along my three-year old son, Carrick. His little legs churned so fast. I’m sure he felt like he […]

Cap Gun Evangelism

“I’m playing dead, daddy.” The words of my three-year old still bring a smile to my face. I shot him good—with a toy cap gun—of course. Recently, on a family vacation, I bought four toy cap guns. The kind that make a loud shooting sound when the hammer strikes a firing cap. They’re the “real” toy guns I remember playing with as a child. I’ll […]
