My first child's book is complete.

Most of us find it really daunting to pull back the façade or religious masks that we have gotten so used to letting others see or experience when around us. For some of us; we’ve been pretending for so long that we’re no longer sure of our true identity.
Our apparent self can become like veneer on furniture--a thin layer that makes us look like something we’re not. We even become fooled into believing that the veneer is who we really are. Let’s take the…Continue

Our Lord has a wonderful plan for every child who loves Him and No satanic attack against His children can ever alter those plans. God knows the sorrows, struggles and pain we may be facing today!

I don’t feel like celebrating. Haven’t you heard; the times, they are burdensome! Maybe you have so much stress that you can’t even detect something worth celebrating? At more times than I want to count, I do! At the very least we are unplugged from celebration with the exception of major holidays. Note to self: “You are being robbed of most of the potential for joy in your life.”
So, if we are already celebration jaded, is there a way out? Yes! First, allow yourself to be restored…Continue

Words are often so inadequate in expressing heart-felt sentiments. "I would maintain that 'gratitude' is the highest form of thought!"So know that there is so much more 'heart' here than meets the ear and eye.
Janis and I are continually overwhelmed by the gift of long term friendships, like yours. You never cease to bring…Continue

Brennan Manning loved to refer to the Gospel as the Ragamuffin Gospel. I always liked that! Why? I didn’t come to Jesus with any piety or with the veil of…Continue

‘The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind-Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So that might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact sent me. The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So that they’ll be as unified and together as we are-I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this oneness, and give the godless world evidence that you’ve sent me and loved them in the same way you’ve loved me.’ (John 17: 21-23,…Continue

God continues to pour His extravagant love and grace out in our midst here at New Life…Continue

Synergy happens when two or more entities decide to join their visions for the purpose of an agreed upon outcome. They realize that doing this greatly enhances the outcome they could ever achieve alone.…Continue

We finally as a nation have arrived at a pinnacle of sorts concerning the legislative demand for health care. It seems that only the elite who have no clear reference point can concede of this laws benefit in an over all way. Clearly, to have health care is not a negative but what has brought us to this point of divisive national decision? Only those who hold office and do not have to submit to these plans and…Continue
