Hickerson Family Website

There is nothing I am more thankful for than having Christ as my Savior.  Just the other day, I shared with someone how to keep on going after all that they have been through.  The odd thing about the situation is that this person did not like me in years past, but that did not keep me from sharing His promise.  May we all be thankful for what we have and look forward to our future,  not holding on but remembering the past.  --Roddy

 
"As fathers we are called to be leaders.  Most importantly, leaders in our families.  This song caused me to think how important it is to be there for my family and to put their dreams before my own.  To be a role model by my spiritual walk.  To lead them as Jesus would lead me."              -Roderick Hickerson

"Lead Me"

 

Christ Jesus, you have called me to love my wife tenderly and sacrificially, even as you love the church, but too often I know myself to be a selfish man with a distracted heart.  Pease give me patience, gentleness, and kindness toward my wife, and the wisdom to value her for her gifts and ideas.  Teach me to be vulnerable with her, openly sharing my own heart and thoughts, hopes and fears, even as is seek to better understand hers.

                Remind me to be ever mindful of her interests and needs with each decision I make and to structure my life in such a way that she receives the best of my energy and attention, rather than the leftovers.  Give me the courage to passionately pursue relationship with her even when I feel wronged or wounded.  Let me become for her a man of tenderness, kindness, creativity, and integrity, protecting and cherishing her by vigilantly guarding my own eyes and heart.

                Above all, teach me to lead as you led, Jesus, in humility and service.  Only by your grace can I be a godly man and a good husband for my wife.  Lead me Lord, I pray.  Amen.

Genesis 2:24  For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
