Hi, thanks for stopping by!

My name is Danny Dodd and this is my blog. Just a little about myself: I am married to the beautiful, wonderful Terri Dale, originally from Melbourne, Arkansas. We have two terrific girls, Taylor (17 yrs. old) and Jordan (14 yrs. old). I am also the dad of Natalie, who is an ER nurse/adminstrator in Corpus Christi, TX.

Currently I am the preaching minister at the Levy Church of Christ in North Little Rock, AR. Preaching and ministry has been my life-calling and I have served churches in the states and in Vilnius, Lithuania.

Here are my other blogs, links and websites:

    I was wondering what you do for self-care. I think this would be a good topic on your blog.
    I have found biking to be a good stress-reducer as well as annual retreats (usually to a monastery) and then having 4 Sundays off plus vacation I get a chance to visit other churches that are not in my fellowship and participate in worship. I would be curious to what other pastors do.

  8. Those are great ideas. Great to see that your Shepherds are willing to step beyond the norm to be the most effective Church possible! A great example.

    Danny, you may or may not remember me from many years ago in Greenville, MS and at Magnolia BC. I just found you blog online when I was looking for information about the divorce ministry and your article about divorce among COC minsiters showed up. I also have found very little written about divorce in the church. It is a reality and an real issue. I am now divorced. Have you come across any additional information since you wrote the article. I would appreciate any information you might have found. A lot of the experiences I have had with the brethren since my divorce have not been very uplifting. Thanks.

  13. Saved as a favorite, I really like your blog!

    Hey Uncle Danny! I read your blog a lot and I love it! I just wanted to ask you some questions for a Christian research paper that I’m doing for my Honors English class. I’m having some trouble finding information on a certain subject. Could you call me sometime please? Thanks!

  16. Hi Danny, I’d like to invite you to join the new “Church of Christ at Blogs and Bloggers” group on Facebook.

    Its goal is a community to post, read, and discuss blog posts and other articles relevant to the Churches of Christ, conservative or progressive, …. All are welcome.

    Of particular interest to bloggers is that bloggers in the group are asked to comment substantively on other bloggers’ posts so all can receive substantive feedback.

    Here is a link to the group:

    If the link does not work, search on Facebook for Church of Christ at Blogs and Bloggers.

    I hope you will join!
