Dads Matter!

As a father myself it’s no surprise that parenting, especially the father-child relationship, is a topic close to my heart.

This […]

Rejoice in the Good News: Happy Easter from OCRM!

Last year I experienced the joy of new life firsthand with the birth of my first grandchild.  As I held my precious grandchild for the first time, I couldn’t help but reflect on the excitement of new life, and how God must feel this way about us, His children!  At Easter, we are reminded of […]
