Hey, fellow travelers! My name is Jeff Parker. I have been married to my wife, Stacey, for 14 years now. She is a rock. We have four children: Bennett (10), Dayton (8), Channing (6), and Austen (3). Life is full, but awesome. 

We’ve been at Watermark for 14+ years. About a year ago, I joined Watermark staff at the Plano campus. By the grace of God alone, I am now the recovery director at the Plano campus. Come all who are weary and burdened.

I HAVE TESTED THE WARNINGS OF SCRIPTURE AND FOUND THEM TO BE TRUE.

Proverbs 21:1-10

21:1 The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord;
he turns it wherever he will.
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,
but the Lord weighs the heart.
To do righteousness and justice
is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.
Haughty eyes and a proud heart,
the lamp [1] of the wicked, are sin.
The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance,
but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty.
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue
is a fleeting vapor and a snare of death. [2]
The violence of the wicked will sweep them away,
because they refuse to do what is just.
The way of the guilty is crooked,
but the conduct of the pure is upright.
It is better to live in a corner of the housetop
than in a house shared with a quarrelsome wife.
10 The soul of the wicked desires evil;
his neighbor finds no mercy in his eyes. (ESV)

MEMORY VERSES

Proverbs 19:11

Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
