About radamdavidson

When I'm not blogging, I'm hanging out with my family, pastoring a church, or listening to vinyl. I think and write about Jesus, music, communication, organizational leadership, family whatnot, and cultural artifacts from the 1980's -- mostly vintage boomboxes. You can read my blog at www.radamdavidson.com, watch [RadCast], a daily 3 minute video devotional, or find me on socials (@radamdavidson). I also help Pastors in their preaching and public speaking (www.CoachMyPreaching.com).

Da doot doot doo…

I heard my Grandma June’s voice this morning coming out of my own mouth and it scared me a little. Zac was dragging himself out of bed, angling for a sick day. All the Middle School symptoms were presented: headache, … Continue reading

Doption

The day I first met Cam, he was barely 4 years old and unsure of what to say to me. I wasn’t sure what to say to him, either.  Being what I now know is uncharacteristically shy, it’s the only … Continue reading

Patient Lexi

You probably know that Lexi doesn’t say much. Her communication is essentially nonverbal, highly nuanced, and surprisingly robust. She’s a persistent communicator who will do what she needs to get her point across. Where she’s short on words, she’s long … Continue reading
