Some Lessons We've Learned

Over the last 40 years of ministry

DISAPPOINTMENT – Relationships, Personal Health

By boblehman / July 11, 2018

Have you ever run into a movie aficionado who has practically memorized every line from their favorite movie? Not just the familiar ones…but all of the lines, like they were an understudy? I’m not quite that bad, but when it comes to “The Princess Bride,” I’m pretty close. One great exchange between Inigo Montoya and the Man…

CRITICISM – Issues of Fear

By boblehman / July 6, 2018

Allow me continue the lessons of Noah’s Ark with the theme “All I really need to know I learned from Noah’s Ark.” Today’s lesson is simply this… Don’t listen to Critics. Do what has to be done. The story of Noah includes a hundred years of daily criticism from people who didn’t know what they…

UNKINDNESS – Issues of Parenting, Relationships

By boblehman / July 4, 2018

Mean people are the WORST! They just are. Sorry for being so direct, but it fits. I don’t know what the percentages are, but I’m sure there are more nice people than mean people in the world. Now, it depends on the circles you operate in, but we all rub shoulders with this demographic of…

MAKING CHOICES – Issues of Integrity

By boblehman / June 17, 2018

There is another great principle I’ve learned from the story of Noah’s Ark. It sort of states the obvious, are you ready: Build on High Ground. While this might seem pretty obvious, there is great truth in this principle. In looking more closely, I believe this is actually two smaller truths: 1) When you have a…

WISE PLANNING – Issues of Vision

By boblehman / June 3, 2018

One of the most popular books in bookstores over the past 20 years is “All I Really Need to Know I Learned From Kindergarten”. About 10 years ago, someone wrote an article called “All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Noah’s Ark.” They were funny, but they definitely had a sense of practical wisdom. After…

A HEART FOR ADVENTURE – Issues of Parenting

By boblehman / June 3, 2018

Teaching is a noble profession. I think you’d have a hard time finding someone who doesn’t believe that. However, if most people are high on teachers, I can’t figure out why they are paid so poorly… but I digress. A good friend of mine was teaching a gathering of teachers hoping to hone their skills.…

PURSUE LOVE – Relationships

By boblehman / May 22, 2018

Pursuing Love As Americans, we are told that we have the right to pursue happiness. The Declaration of Independence states that man has three unalienable rights: “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” It is a fact that Americans are constantly in the pursuit of happiness. As a nation, we think that money, good looks, things, a secure…

TRUTH AND PEER PRESSURE – Issues of Integrity

By boblehman / April 22, 2018

How to Combat the lie of Peer Pressure What causes so many of us to believe that we must have everyone’s love and approval? This is the mantra of today’s junior high and high school campuses, and it’s a conversation we have with our kids more and more often. “Nobody loves me, nobody cares…mom, dad you…

STUBBORN HEART – Issues of Integrity

By boblehman / March 31, 2018

Oftentimes, we tell ourselves lies. More often than not, I believe it is our sin nature that convinces us of what we think should be the truth rather than reality, but somehow the made-up truth makes us feel better. One of the more frequent lies I hear is “I can’t be happy unless everything goes…
