Do You Really Have To?

by: Matt Hagee

There is no lack of content available about time management. The long list of how to, what to, and when to, come in every form from books to downloads and apps. It goes without saying that our society is getting busier by the day.

They Finally Held Hands

by: Matt Hagee

Yesterday was a big day. It may have seemed like nothing much to the rest of the world, but it was huge for Kendal and me. Our oldest two children, Hannah and J.W, are the classic definition of sibling rivalry. All you have to do to motivate one is make it a competition with the other.

They Need To Know How It Feels!

by: Matt Hagee

One of the greatest joys in my life is the opportunities that I have to share experiences with my children that I didn't have in my childhood. It's the generational desire to "give them what we didn't have." It is a wonderful thing to be able to enjoy God's blessings, especially with your family. After all, that's what the hard work is for.

by: Matt Hagee

Have you ever needed help, but did not want to ask for it? We’ve all been there. My two year old lives there, “No I do it!” is her new favorite phrase. I think I know where she gets it from.

In doing so, I learn so much about myself. I can identify certain behaviors that I see in them and think to myself, "I know exactly where that came from!"

Don’t be Afraid to Try

by: Matt Hagee

The fear of failure is likely the most widespread of all fears. It comes in many shapes and sizes. My kids face it on a daily basis and I am always quick to encourage them to overcome it. I know that if they allow fear to win, they will be robbed of the opportunity to enjoy the best parts of life. Every time they go to the batter’s box, stand at the plate and stare at the pitcher, I am telling them, “You can do it! Don’t be afraid to try!”

Where Did You Learn To Do That?

by: Matt Hagee

My children recently spent the night in what I call, “The House of Yes!” This would be at the same address where my parents receive their mail. The reason I call it, "The House of Yes" is because everything that I have said “no” to is, for some reason, turned into an automatic “yes” the moment the kids walk through their grandparent’s door.

“We Are Going to Do This Together…”

by: Matt Hagee

The kids are out of school!!! The days are getting longer and hotter, and the activities are only beginning to pile up. My five-year-old, Joel, is always concerned about what we are going to do next. No matter how exciting or routine the current event is, if it’s the joy of an amusement park or the torture of 5:00 o’clock traffic, he is the child who will always ask me with great excitement, “Dad what are we going to do next?
