My friend David Drury, who authored the book Being Dad, wrote something this week that has stuck with me. I hope it is insightful and encouraging to you.   “*After the Shipwreck* Lately, I’ve been able to reconnect with a few old friends. They might not want me to call them “old” friends, but my…

Address Your Weariness

By Tim McAboy | March 7, 2018 | 0 Comments

As I was reading through the Blue Note this week, I found myself thinking a few separate times, “Wow. A lot is going on.” I look at my Google calendar and, “Wow, I have a lot going on.” It is easy this time of year to slip in and out of weariness. When we are…

Rushing to the Broken

By Tim McAboy | February 21, 2018 | 0 Comments

“We are rushing to the broken.” A friend of mine spoke these words as he led students in chapel at a school I was leading. His message was inspiring, but my thought was, “No, we’re not.” My school was (and is) wonderful, but we didn’t rush towards the broken. I found myself often giving reasons…

Love Rescued Me. On December 2, 2003, Love rescued me when my daughter Lily was carried off the elevator in a hotel conference room in China and into our waiting arms, making me “Daddy.”  Looking back on that day, I didn’t know I needed to be rescued. To be honest, I thought I was doing…

What Are You Waiting For?

By Tim McAboy | November 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

Recently on a morning run that turned into more of a walk, I found myself walking around the outside of our school. I said aloud, “Who should I pray for, Lord?” Very clearly He said, “Pray for those who are waiting.” I prayed for families waiting for medical treatments to bring results, wayward family members…

Do Your Children and Grandchildren Know…

By Tim McAboy | November 9, 2017 | 1 Comment

When my Grandma McAboy came to visit, she would often stay for a few days at a time.  One night as I was falling asleep, I heard her in her room talking. After a minute or two I realized she was praying, and after another moment I realized she was praying for me. Grandma McAboy…
