Lord...all that we have accomplished you have done for us. — Isaiah 26:12 NIV

Welcome. I invite you to join God and my family in my father’s journey.

My dad Roddie was so ordinary—just like you and me. Yet he chose to live by extraordinary values. Life giving values all of us can choose to live. Values driven by God’s greater love we call Roddie’s C.O.D.E.—Choose God, Oppose Hate, Dignify Life, and Express Love.

Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. — John 15:13 NKJV

Learning about dad and his brave boys has reaffirmed that everyday goodness transforms our world through the power of God’s grace. I hope you’ll be inspired by dad’s greater love for God, life, and humanity.

Our hurting world desperately needs heroes. Ordinary folks like you and me who love God first and serve others best. I pray you will join us and choose to live heroic in your neck of the woods.

Let’s walk and learn together—cry, laugh, and rejoice together—and grow in God’s goodness together. And like dad, let’s choose to share greater love as we enjoy life, express love, and embrace the good Lord above.

Join us in Roddie’s Regiment. Let’s live heroic and be the hero!

The godly people in the land are my true heroes! I take pleasure in them! Psalm 16:3 NLT

Discovering Dad

Dad and I were close. Because I knew what mattered to him—his family, his fellow man, his country and his faith—I knew everything that was important about him. Or so I thought, until eight years ago.
