We love a lot of things – hunting, fishing, hanging out with our family and eating Miss Kay’s cooking. But what gets us fired up more than anything else, and is the foundation of our daily lives, is our relationship with the Almighty. There is nothing we would rather do than dig into the pages of the Word of God. Faith – it’s the foundation of who we are as individuals and as a family. In this section we will explore our faith. Sometimes it may be only a verse from the Word, other times we may include articles or thoughts from one of us or from some of our friends. No matter what we have here, we are praying for you! Praying that you will take the time to grow a personal relationship with the Almighty.

  • Friends, Family and the Outdoors

    All weekends are nice, but when your wife tells you that she wants to go archery hunting, now that’s special.

    My wife, Paula, shot her bow with me for years in the yard but never actually hunted. Mainly because we had a daughter at home. Well, the daughter is grown, so Paula has decided that she wants to archery hunt now. Last year, she got backstraps so she’s hooked.

    We had planned this weekend for a while with my good friend, Jeff Smith. He owns Leland Lures and is an...

  • Man Up!

    "But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God on the basis of faith."

  • He Understands!

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God... The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

    - John 1:1,14

    The more I read the Bible, the more I am amazed at what God did for us and what He went through just to be near us. He became one of us, experience what we experience, and let us know that we mean everything to Him. He...

  • Always At The Ready

    But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope you have. But do this in gentleness and respect.

    - I Peter 3:15

    People who know me know that I love to talk -- and this verse gives me guidance on how to use my gift of gab. Peter says that if I truly revere the Lord, I must be ready at all times to tell others why. I have to admit that I don't always wait for someone to ask me about my...

  • If Christ Has Not Been Raised...


    For if the dead are not raised, then Christ has not been raised either. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ are lost. If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied. But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.

    -1 Corinthians 15:16-20

    What good would it do you or me if...

  • He Who Struggles

    Then the man said, "Your name will no longer be Jacob, but Israel, because you have struggled with God and with humans and have overcome."

    -Genesis 32:28

    The Bible tells an interesting story about a wrestling match between Jacob and an angel. After wrestled all night with this guy, he received a blessing and a name change. "Jacob" means "deceiver," and that word had described the tone of Jacob's life from a very...

  • A Speck In Your Brother's Eye

    Well it's the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year!  In Louisiana we get a two-week warm up before duck season known as early goose season. During this season you can take snow geese and white fronted geese A.K.A. specklebelly, specks, yuck a lucks, and ribeyes. You will be hard pressed to find a better eating bird than a speck. He tends to be a very particular eater. He prefers grain over everything else so therefore he eats like grain fed beef.

    I have always been...

  • Rain is a Good Thing

    I know what you’re thinking. 

    You’re thinking rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey, whiskey makes my baby feel a little frisky, and so on.  To a certain extent you and Luke Bryan would be correct, but that is not what I am referring to here.  As of two weeks ago much of the south was in a pretty significant drought.  As duck hunters, we were excited and nervous all at the same time.  We were excited...
