Jay Blogs – Life Without You

It’s really hard to be a mom in today’s culture, even while living in Christian community. In some ways, it may actually be worse. Almost every mom I know fights the temptation to place these crushing expectations on themselves- to be, as one of my mom friends says,...

Jay Blogs – Finished Business, Part II

As I said last week, I’ve just finished defending my dissertation. Last week, I talked about why I went through this five-year process. As much as I’ve learned at DBU, God taught me so much more about life as I tried to lead my family and this school through this...

Jay Blogs – Go

Right now, it’s pretty quiet around the high school. I’m reminded, as I am every year, of how much quieter and less exciting my life would be as a head of a K-8 school. For those of you who don’t have high schoolers, the reason it’s so quiet is Go Week. Go Week is our...

Jay Blogs – A New Vision

Vision is vital to anyone, whether you’re an individual or an organization. It’s also scriptural.  The most often-cited vision passage is Proverbs 29:18, “Where there is no prophetic vision, the people cast off restraint.”  Having vision–a larger purpose, a greater...

Why We Chose Grace

We moved our family of six from Kansas City to Tyler in 2004 when we had four small children. Stephanie and I moved our children from a community in which the public school system was really good and where our boys were thriving. Private school was not a...

Jay Blogs – It’s All a Mystery

We don’t create a lot of space in our lives for the mysterious.  If you watch any day time television talk show (only when I’m sick or something, and then, only long enough to marvel) it’s obvious that people these days are all too anxious to show us everything...

Jay Blogs – Navigating Technology

If you are like me, you spend a lot of your parenting time and energy helping your kids navigate digital technology. I heard a speaker recently say that if you’re one to 18 years old, new technology is not really technology; it’s just the environment you live in, the...

Jay Blogs – Soli Deo Gloria

I don’t use Latin very often. It’s kind of a presumptuous, former practicing-lawyer thing to do. But, sometimes ideas are so compelling, so rooted in who we are as an ancient people, this millennia-old Body of Christ, that the occasion seems to call for a little dead...

Jay Blogs – Extracurricular Activity

I’ve told you before that entering my 15th year at Grace has made me more reflective.  In our fast-paced, frenetic world, we need to “get up on the balcony” every once in a while, and look at what God has done. My pastor says it’s frustrating how little it seems God...
