Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility

Although this book is not a new one, it was new for me. I have been familiar with many of the teachings of Dr. Charles R, Swindoll, but this was my first voyage into the literary pages of this theologian. As his fifth book in the Great Lives Series, I found myself particularly drawn to […]

Are Walnuts An Obsession For You or Are You Just Nuts?

Are you a fan of walnuts? I know I am. In fact,I think my love of them goes all the way back to my early childhood. You see, my mother is an amazing baker. I used to tell her constantly that she could easily have made a career as a baker over her chosen occupation. […]

A Conversation Piece Can Get Your Foot In The Door

A couple of months ago the CBS Evening News reporter Steve Hartman did a docuseries report titled “On The Road“. One of the stories covered was a human interest story about a man named Michael Swain, who was and is making an investment in his community by simply volunteering his services to repair torn and […]

A Compassionate Call to Counter Culture

I recently completed my reading of David Platt’s book Counter Culture: A Compassionate Call to Counter Culture in a World of Poverty, Same-sex Marriage, Racism, Sex Slavery, Immigration, Abortion, Persecution, Orphans and Pornography. If the title alone doesn’t grab you as intriguing, I don’t know what will. In light of many of the recent events […]

When You Come Face to Face With The Ultimate Healer

I wanted to take a moment today to take a slight turn from what I have been talking about on Wednesdays to share something that has been on my heart. It has been on my heart for such a while that I wanted to write a book that deals with it in such a way […]

Platform: Get Noticed In A Noisy World

It wasn’t long ago that I had the privilege to read Michael Hyatt‘s book Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. The subtitle puts into perfect context what the book is about and who it’s for. It simply says, “A step by step guide for anyone with something to say or sell.” It was particularly […]

Pomegranate Should Have Been The Forbidden Fruit

Personally, I feel like the apple gets a bad rap. People are always eluding to the notion that it was the fruit that got Adam and Eve kicked out of the Garden of Eden. Then there are all the television shows and movies that depict apples as the fruit of choice to poison naive little princesses […]

Disciples Labor to Cultivate Fruit of the Spirit

Whether you’ve spent time in a garden, lived on a farm or visited one, you’ve probably in some shape or form had the opportunity to experience what it’s like to cultivate something. This past school year, my younger daughter had the privilege of attempting to grow a sunflower. She came home with her eyes beaming […]

What Are You Doing In The Midst of This Great Shaking

It has been so interesting to note the number of people that I have been in contact who have been having dreams of earthquakes and shaking. This isn’t to say that there have been an actual increase in the number of earthquakes in actuality, but it is enough to note that within the past thirty […]
