Who is Dr. Doug Dees

My family consists of Karen and two kiddos, Katie and Matt. Katie is back in Orlando going for a second degree, this one in nursing. Matt manages a clothing store in Aspen, Colorado. Obviously, we HAVE to go visit our kiddos .
My parents and sisters live in and around Ft. Worth Texas. Karen has two sisters and her dad in Las Vegas and a sister in Ft. Worth and Houston.

When I am helping people find their sweet spot in ministry, I feel alive. When I am teaching with application of what God is saying, I feel alive. When I am helping a church re-think who they are and how to get done what God wants, I feel alive. As long as I feel like I am helping us all become more of who He wants us to be, I sense a smile from my Abba Father.

Just out of college, a buddy of mine and I took my dad’s ski boat out on Benbrook Lake on a very nice day in late February to tune up the inboard motor for ski season. Returning to the dock, I dropped off Kim, and he went to get the jeep and trailer. He backed the trailer into the water and I drove the boat up on it. When leaning over the front of the boat to attach it to the trailer with the wench, I realized my hand was splashing in the water. I looked up, and there was Kim trying to keep the jeep from rolling back into the lake. Not successful, we jumped into the water to detach the boat from the trailer because it too was being pulled down into the water. We then swam around to the back of the boat (cowboy boots, jeans and flannel shirts and all) climbed in, and watched the jeep roll backward until it was completely gone. Two hours later the Benbrook Fire Department scuba team found the jeep 80 feet offshore. A tow truck retrieved the jeep and by 9:45 that evening we had the engine running. So, when my dad called at 10:00, and I told him the jeep got a little wet, at least I could tell him the jeep was running!! It was YEARS later at a Thanksgiving Dinner that I told him it was 80 feet offshore!! I now own it and it runs really well!

…or clanging cymbal. Have you ever been one of these? Haven’t we all? The point in 1 Corinthians 13 is that things done without love have no power in the kingdom. It does not mean that when we do things without love that we are worthless. It means we are not adding to the forward ...

Ingredients

We are all ingredients. We bring flavor to anything we are a part of. Sometimes we flavor things well. Sometimes we bring a bitter taste to a situation. But no matter. We are a flavor. Sometimes we may be only catalysts or a base into which flavors are added and they add the savory part. ...

A Peace of Fruit

The problem with this statement is that we only want a “piece” of the fruit of peace. We want just enough to satisfy for the moment. We do not want Him invading too much of our space. We want peace as a temporary salve and not total peace – that exists regardless of circumstances. We ...

Go to Prison

If you want to set prisoners free, you must go to prison. Christ did. He came here. He was a prisoner in his own body (freely and by design) so that He could be with us and fulfill Isaiah 61, which He said in Luke 4.  If you and I hang around people who are ...

Boxed Up

For years, we have been boxed up. We have been in a cramped, dark space wondering if this is all there is. We know You, Lord. We love You. We know You have set us free. Free from sin and death. Free to go to Heaven to be with You when we die. And at ...
