Five years ago, when I wrote this to read at my dad's funeral, I could never have imagined that so soon afterwards I would be doing something similar for my mom's funeral. For those who have asked, here is the original text as I wrote it, as it was read, minus any last-minute ad libs, stops to drink coffee, or pauses to catch my breath before I broke down in tears or threw up.As we gather here today to celebrate the life and legacy of someone we»

Hi. My name is Sonny Lemmons, and I used to work for the American Family Association. No. I can't believe it either. But it's true. Growing up in Tupelo, MS - especially growing up attending a Southern Baptist church in Tupelo, MS - it was almost impossible to escape the shadow of the AFA. But in much the same way you can stare at your own reflection for so long it begins to grow dull to your eyes, so it was with the AFA. We knew it was t»

Individuals who visit my house might pick up on a theme if they look in the pantry, the fridge, or the living room display cabinet. I have two Apps on my phone to track, suggest, and rate items included in this theme. I have T-shirts. Paraphernalia. And I have a circle of friends with whom I can discuss in detail the nuances, intricacies, and complexities surrounding this theme. Nope. Not Doctor Who. Although that's usually a safe guess. I'»

[Guest Post by Sonny Lemmons. One of the most humble and equally funny writers I've (never) met. Can't wait to meet Sonny, an amazing stay at home dad/writer at Story Chicago Conference this Fall. I hope more people stop judging SAHD's after reading this article.] I wish I could say that when Ashley and I got married there was a period of adjustment that was difficult. Because drama and tension always make great stories, right? I’d heard tales»

Every so often, I get asked (or I beg) to guest post for a friend or website. In fact, if you take a look at the list on the right, you'll find links to them all - but every so often, I have to take a moment to highlight a few of the ones that mean a lot to me. The last week in February, my friend Renee graced me with the ability to speak publicly about something most guys - especially guys in the church - stay silent on: dealing with depress»

[Guest Blog by Sonny Lemmons] – “I’m going to start you on this, at a low dosage, and I’d like to begin seeing you twice a week.” Wait – what? No. No! See, that’s not how this was supposed to turn out at all. Physician, Heal Thyself! It was my second semester of grad school. My degree was counseling based, so the university required students to sit in on one counseling session, as a patient, in order for us to begin to hone our li»

This is the second entry in a new series here at the Windshield (click here for Part One). Ever seen hypocrisy from leaders in the church? Ever felt uneasy about a ministry named after a minister? Ever gotten frustrated, broken-hearted or angry at church? This is for you. Me. Us. But instead of just complaining about it, we're going to call PULPIT! on these shenanigans and start to do something about it. The first step? We need to talk abou»

This is the first in a new series here at the Windshield. Ever seen hypocrisy from leaders in the church? Ever felt uneasy about a ministry named after a minister? Ever gotten frustrated, broken-hearted or angry at church? This is for you. Me. Us. But instead of just complaining about it, we're going to call PULPIT! on these shenanigans and start to do something about it. The first step? We need to talk about it.  Ergo, where this serie»

I've been a lot more self-revealing on this blog as of late. I'm not sure if it's because of a drive and desire to, or just that I've gotten more mature. Okay, it's probably not the last option, but since my birthday is coming up - the birthday that will firmly entrench me as approaching my mid-forties - I have become more transparent and introspective. Case in point... A little over a month ago, I was diagnosed with Secondary Hypertensio»
