ultimate loving daddy

In light of my post yesterday about Mixed Martial Arts, the Church, and Jesus, I thought this would be an appropriate time to come clean with the whole wide world: I wrestle (nearly) every night…with all of my kids including my son and it’s the highlight of my day.

I took the liberty of filming one of my epic matches with my son. I employed some of my MMA moves on him. I feel like a chump dad for ignoring him when he says,

“You’re choking me…”

but I seriously didn’t hear him. Honestly, I really didn’t…

While I have other nicknames I go by, my favorite is, “Ultimate Loving Daddy.”

    Call it non-violent wrestling! Well, the choke-hold could use a little work. I often “wrastle” with my 4 year old nephew. His favorite hold is “the giggler.” And I only let him win occasionally. But seriously, he doesn’t mind losing, not yet anyway . . .

    I believe it was the wise Elliot Ohannes who once told us that “all little boys need to be turned upside at least once a day” (I’m sure this could be appplied to little girls, too, but he only has boys). This is a motto we have tried to live our lives by 🙂 (with only mild back sprains).

    I have three boys age 5, 3 and 15 months. Our daily wrestling is always something I look forward to. Apprecited your post yesterday on the whole MMA / Jesus topic. Well said…

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

The secret to being grateful is no secret. You choose to be grateful. Then you do it again and again. Every day. If you forget, start again. Back to fishing...I mean, umm...back to writing a book. There's no such thing as a self-made person. Someone believed, encouraged, and invested in you. Be grateful and be that someone for others.

Taking a break from the sabbatical...to partner in ministry in Denver at Cherry Hills Church and at the CRU staff conference. It was such a gift to be able to encourage a handful of folks one-to-one, a small group of Asian-American leaders from EPIC, and the larger group of 5000 staff during one of the sessions.

I've been personally blessed, challenged, encouraged, exhorted, and convicted by so many who have poured into my life - friends, acquaintances, and even strangers - and I hope to do that for others as I seek to be faithful to Christ.

Thank you, Lord.
#cru17 Nothing grows by itself. If something matters to us, may we be intentional about growing it.

Invest. Pray. Plant. Water. Nurture. Repeat. God sees and knows us. In fact, God knows everything about us.

Not just the good we try so hard to project but even the mess we often seek to hide.

Let this soak in: Not only are we fully known but in Christ, we are fully pursued and loved.

This is grace.
Amazing grace. Hairstyles change. Sideburn fads come and go but may our commitment to love, honor, respect, and be on mission together for Christ never waver.

Thank you, Minhee. I love you so much even if you made fun of my hairstyle and sideburns.
