Where does the story start?

It was a hot humid summer night, you know the kind, where your clothes stick to you and we had just arrived in New Orleans for our missions trip. We were standing outside and in that place I prayed the prayer that would change the trajectory of my life forever. It was July 2000, that

Perhaps this is the time….

Recently I was listening to a book, and they were talking about Esther and my mind went to the verse Esther 4:14 For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you

Experiencing the day….

Yesterday morning while I was at camp, having my quiet time, I was struck by the wonder of the early morning. Yes, I was awake and showered and outside having my quiet time before everyone else. In fact, I had finished my quiet time before I even saw another person out and about. While I

The Power of the Gospel

The last couple of weeks I have had this song running through my mind, and what it means for us. I think this song is fairly popular in Christian radio, at least that is what one of my friends told me, however, I don’t typically listen to the radio, I found the song because it

I Can Ask God For The Small Things Too?

Recently, I was listening to a book about prayer, and about how we need to be specific in our prayers and not leave out even the little things. I know that I struggled through this, and it took me a couple of days to make the decision to pray specific and include even the things
