Technology can be amazing but there are downsides. One of the downsides is the erosion of quiet in our lives. My newest song “Quiet Side” expresses the challenge that our generation is facing. I hope it resonates with you.
After a long break from music recording, I’m back in the studio. Through Our Windows is the second single from this new project, available on your favorite streaming platform. I first wrote and recorded this song around the year 2000 and it was the title track for the album. The message of this song is as timely today as it was back then. If you liked the song in 2000, then I’m sure you’ll love this new version. If you’ve never heard the song before, I hope it will feed your soul.
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.” James 1:2-3

7 Considerations in the Age of Video Games
For nearly two decades I have been speaking to youth and parents about making wise media and entertainment choices from a Biblical Worldview. One of the hot topics has been the subject of video games.
It was not uncommon to have teens asking me what I thought about their favorite game. I originally brought up four things for them to consider for themselves instead of just hearing my opinion.
1. The Bible teaches us to redeem the time. Video games can be an enormous time sink. Is this the best use of your time?
2. Research is proving what mom’s already know — video games can be addictive. This can become problematic in the home and for personal responsibilities. Is gaming under control or are you under its control?
3. Is there anything in the game you’re playing that if you did in real life would break one of the moral laws of God?
4. Video games often foster a false sense of accomplishment. This is usually at the cost of real-life accomplishments that are neglected due to a fixation on playing video games.
In the last few years I’ve modified my questions a little and have added three more considerations.
I’ve recently written a short E-Book that explains all seven considerations in more detail and I tell my personal story regarding video games.
