Hometown Missionary

When one thinks about a missionary we think about the person or people sent by a religious organization to a foreign country to evangelize, feed, educate, and heal the needy. This requires sacrifice as they leave homes and families to do this work. “How to Be a Missionary: in Your Hometown” by Joel Nagel teachesContinue reading “Hometown Missionary”

366 Glimpses of God

Sharon Norris Elliott enables her readers to snatch a peek at the attributes of God each day in “366 Glimpses of God: Getting to Know The God Who Knows You“. These daily devotions are encouraging, heart rendering, convicting, and revealing. I enjoyed it so much that I passed the book on to a member inContinue reading “366 Glimpses of God”

2022 Perspective

The year 2022 seems to have been the fastest year ever! That saying about the older you are the faster the years go, but no longer seem to be true. Since the pandemic started in 2020 teens have said time, especially this year, is moving at an accelerated rate. For 2022 I thought God hadContinue reading “2022 Perspective”

Please Stand By Continues

I remain on please stand by mode. God has rearranged my whole schedule these past few months. Nothing has been written on book four, but I am not worried. His timing is best. Instead He has me writing travel articles and twenty-five reasons why I stay in God’s kingdom. On November 30, 2022 I celebrateContinue reading “Please Stand By Continues”

What a disaster!

I expected a dry set-of-facts type of book. But “The Ashtabula Disaster” by Rev. Stephen D. Peet in 1877 was not that at all! Because of visiting the grave site and the historic marker I knew the facts. In Ashtabula, Ohio ninety-two people of 159 perished in a train crash. In a terrible blizzard asContinue reading “What a disaster!”

Triple “No”

The altitude is 37,000 feet as I fly over the Atlantic Ocean from London. I arrived September 7, 2022 and The Queen was dead by the same afternoon. There were three things I wanted to do while on this trip, but God said “no”. Number one: I have always wanted to take the Eurostar trainContinue reading “Triple “No””

Find Your People

Find Your People: Building Deep Community in a Lonely World by Jennie Allen was highly insightful. I am grateful a dear friend from church established a book club so that several ladies could explore the information in this book. For me it was a source of encouragement and of conviction. Jennie’s words helped me toContinue reading “Find Your People”

Today I was supposed to be in Orlando, Florida for an international church summit. Instead God had me on the third day of training for a Stress Protest weekend in Colorado. In addition He has me attending the Vision World Discipleship Summit which I was supposed to be at in-person virtually. A hike and aContinue reading “Training”

Thanks to God the real story has been on the market for two years. Celebrate with us by acquiring an autographed discounted copyContinue reading “The Real Story”
