Have you seen this clip floating around social media? Professor Robert Kelly was giving a live interview from his home study. Then, in walks his daughter, son, and eventually his wife to recover them.

As someone who works at home with my children I can relate. Balancing work and family is a tension. I am also reminded something Jesus said.

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14 NIV

As parents we all have moments when we need to focus on work. Yet, Christ demonstrates he is never to busy for us, even the little children.


Last week I finished reading The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni. I can not remember if I bought this book used or someone gave it to me.

I really enjoyed this book. The first 3/4 of the book are a leadership parable. The final section is a description of the principles discussed.

The book was very easy to read. I would recommend it to anyone who works or is around people ever.

My main takeaway was people need to trust each other enough to have authentic conflict. This applies to marriage, organizations, or roommates. Everyone can take something away here.
