Our culture may send conflicting messages about motherhood, but moms still matter as much as ever!
What Are Your Real Priorities?
By Jonathan Lewis   |   04.27.19
A couple of weeks ago, on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, I found myself in our dark, dingy basement in one of my sporadic efforts to clean it out. Our basement is one of the old-fashioned kind. Unfinished. Dimly lit. Concrete...
Perfect Peace in the Storm
By Jonathan Lewis   |   04.13.19
Last night we had an unexpected thunderstorm. If you have young children, you know that a nighttime storm can mean Mom and Dad won’t be getting much sleep for as long as it lasts! Such was the case last night....
Becoming a Deuteronomy 6 Dad
By Jonathan Lewis   |   03.23.19
I don’t know about you, but I find God’s instructions in Deuteronomy 6:6-7 both challenging and convicting. It’s in this passage that God commands parents to teach their children in His ways diligently—as we sit at home, walk along the...

Lessons about marriage from an early morning hunt for clean socks...
Waiting on God
By Jonathan Lewis   |   12.22.18
I was thinking about the birth of John the Baptist recently when an aspect of the story struck me in a new way. The scriptural account of his birth (and even his life) is relatively condensed. We know that Zechariah...
For the Love of Marriage
By Jonathan Lewis   |   12.11.18
Marriage is increasingly marginalized in our culture. It’s time we stand up and celebrate the wonderful gift it is.
Getting Back to the Basics
By Jonathan Lewis   |   10.02.18
I recently embarked on the adventure of teaching my boys (ages six and four) how to ride a bike without training wheels. After multiple sessions, our efforts paid off and both boys are doing very well at keeping their balance....
A Clear and Urgent Calling
By Jonathan Lewis   |   09.07.18
If you’ve been a believer for any length of time, you’re familiar with the Great Commission—the call to reach the whole world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. It’s the marching orders of the church, so to speak, and rightly...
The Biggest Reason Why Every Christian Parent Should Consider Homeschooling
By Jonathan Lewis   |   07.26.18
It might not be what you think. I’m a second-generation homeschooling Dad. I won’t deny my bias in favor of home education, nor my belief that it’s an amazing lifestyle that offers tremendous benefits to families willing to make the...
A Model Dad

I’m Glad My Parents Were Boring
By Jonathan Lewis   |   05.31.18
Today my wife and I are celebrating our seventh anniversary. I know seven years isn’t very long compared to many couples, but it’s certainly been long enough for us to experience our share of life changes, special moments, and challenging times. Our culture has become increasingly mixed up in its portrayal of marriage.
The Father I Want to Be
By Jonathan Lewis   |   04.28.18
My wife is about to give birth to our fourth child in six years. Our first two—both boys—were born just seventeen months apart. Our third—a girl—came just over two years later. Now, we’re about to become parents again. Becoming a...
Why Your Worldview Matters
By Jonathan Lewis   |   03.28.18
Although the subject of worldview has become a hot topic among Christians, there are many in the church who still don’t understand what a worldview is and why it matters. At best, it can often seem like an entirely theoretical topic with little bearing on the practical realm. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.
The Not-So-Secret Weapon of Cultural Warfare
By Jonathan Lewis   |   03.23.18
Jesus once stated that “the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light” (Luke 16:8). Unfortunately, this has been proven all too true in recent generations when it comes to the battle for our culture. On the whole, it seems that those who oppose Christ have been far more successful in shaping society than have the followers of God.
