On the Mexico side of the Rio Grande

When 100 Yards is a Million Miles.

New Year. New Perspective. The Bondurant family started off 2016 by gaining new perspective. We journeyed what seemed like 1 million miles away, but we only needed to see 100 yards across a river. Kia and I and the whole family (all 6 of us) took a trip to Reynosa, Mexico, just south of the border from […]

2016 Word of the Year | BOLD

The ‘C’ word Can you imagine one word changing the entire trajectory of your life? As hard as it may seem to believe, it’s possible. One word can radically change your story. I know this because one word, five years ago, began a snowball of change and growth in my life. Which brings me to the […]

Word of the Year | What I learned from ATTACK in 2015

ATTACK | Word of the Year 2015 2015 was the 5th year of the Word of the Year project for me. Each year has been it’s own unique and different experience, and as I look back I see how important each word has been for my life – both in that year and beyond. His a […]

Word of the Year | Something from Nothing

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  -Genesis 1:1-3 Something from Nothing It’s hard for us […]

Joy is from satisfaction, community and peace


Joy Unspeakable!! My day job, so to speak, is overseeing the children’s ministry of a local church – Cross Points Church. We call the kids ministry Cross Points Kids. I’m hired to be a children’s pastor, but my job is to lead a team of teenagers and adults who teach kids on a weekly basis. […]

Caleb loses the prime of being 40 but isn't bitter

Caleb: Life after 40

Upsides and Downsides This year I turn 42. I’m still a few months away, but my age does occasionally cross my mind. Thankfully, we aren’t a gag gift type of family. When I turned 40, I didn’t suffer through the myriad of over-the-hill cards, t-shirts and trucker hats. I do know the reality of my age. […]

No one cares.

I’m tired. I prepared to tell you how tired I am. I was going to tell you about daylight savings, getting up early, sick kids, activities and more. I want you to know how tired I am.   But I stopped. I stopped because you don’t care. I don’t believe you’re callous. I don’t think you […]

On getting Fat and Happy

Kid Dynamite I was not a boxing fan growing up. I didn’t have much of a chance of that living in a single mother house with 2 women (mom & sister). I’ll never forget, though, one boxing match I did watch. I was staying with my dad in the summer, and we were at a […]

The Word of the Year project is a Year Long.


Word of the Year 2015 Earlier, I shared my 2015 Word of the Year – ATTACK. 2013 and 2014 were more theory than practical – TRANSFORM & VISION. I’m excited about ATTACK because it’s practical. Here is a list of things I will practically attack in 2015: Writing. I’ve committed to write here 3 days a week. I […]

Noah didn't wait. Noah Attacked life.


Why ATTACK? A few months ago, I re-read the story of Noah and the Ark. It’s such a familiar story, most people could pretty accurately recite the story at a moment’s notice. Especially now that Noah has been made into a major motion picture, we know the basics. Noah is chosen because of his righteousness […]
