Time is the Gift

The Gift We Give Each Other

The holidays.  A season when there seems to never be enough time to get everything accomplished.  Most of us are busying looking for just the right gifts while we try to spend time with the ones we love.  I wonder if those two objectives can come together.  Maybe this Christmas, the best gift we can give is our time

Thankful and Praying for Courage

Those who know me and “Coach Jeff” will affirm that I see the glass half full. Many of you would go further and suggest that my glass is overflowing with optimism. I often say, “I have pitched my tent in the land of hope.” Acts 2:26. But in the year of 2020, even I have wondered how we keep up that optimism.  


When I became a coach, I taught my youth soccer team the same concept. Spread the field. Keep your spacing.   Don’t get too close to each other. Spacing is critical to success in basketball, as well – on both ends of the court.

Taking One More Step

As we look forward to 2020, Be There Dad understands that our success depends on our willingness to believe. We will continue to believe what the data, research and our own experiences have shown us – that the power of presence works.
