Susan Boyle Video Continues to Inspire

I love it though. I actually read her story today. She had a dream, she worked for it, and she achieved it. This is a true picture of what determination and motivation can do for someone. What I probably love more than anything was what I read recently, that Susan’s real dream was to show her mother that she could do something with her life. Love it! [...] Continue Reading…

The Best Comment I Ever Received (So Far)

I always said that I wanted to be a father deserving of those corny plaques displayed at the Christian bookstores. If my boys ever gave me one of them, and I deserved it, then I would feel I had accomplished what God called me to do as a dad.

Marriage Help From Focus on the Family

Focus on the Family has a broadcast over the next few days that I would strongly encourage all women to listen to. Men should listen also, but it is primarily geared to a female audience.

Apparently the dog wasn’t working out at the previous owner’s home, so they thought to give it to the Obama family. I’m happy for them, knowing the joy an animal can bring a household.

It’s Saturday, but Sunday’s Coming!

One Saturday morning some 2,000 years ago, surely there was a group of mixed-up, hurting, confused, sickly, tired, afraid, and desperate people. They had placed all their hopes in a man who claimed to be the promised Messiah. They were there when their hope was nailed to a cross. They watched their mentor and friend die a cruel death. What would they do now? What was next? [...] Continue Reading…

Passion Play Via Twitter?

Technology is being used in incredible ways for Kingdom growth. It seems this Easter I have seen much more advertising for “Internet Church”. Several leading churches are encouraging people to check out the Internet this Easter. That’s not new, but it seems more prevalent this year than ever. [...] Continue Reading…

Daylight Makes Darkness Disappear

That is, until the morning came. The night before it was dark. I couldn’t see fully what I was doing. There was one bracket holding the light in place that when moved, made the headlight one of the easiest to change I have ever experienced. I’m driving his truck this week as he drives mine, so I’m thankful for the headlight. [...] Continue Reading…
