What the World Needs Now
The holiday season is the giving season. It warms my heart to see all of the love and compassion displayed for those who are in need. Many organizations, churches, and individuals provide food, clothes, and toys to those in need in communities all across the country. I believe that this love and compassion should be…Read More
Christians By Whose Standards?
Many Americans claim to be Christians. Statistics from a few years ago stated that between 70 – 75% of adults in America identify themselves as Christians – about 240,000,000 Americans. Knowing that 3 out of 4 adults in America are Christians is mind-boggling to me. You would think that we would know how to treat…Read More
Making a Difference #The Starfish Story
Over the weekend, I was reminded of a story I had heard several years ago. There are different versions of the story, but the one I thought about had an old man and a little boy in it. It is “The Starfish Story.” I have included it at the bottom, in case you want to…Read More
Blessings in Life and Death

Who is Number One?
Those who know me, know that I love to watch tennis. I love to play also, although I am not very good at it. For the past 2 weeks, I have been watching the Australian Open. As the days passed, and players advanced to the next rounds, discussions arose about who would have the number…Read More
Children of God
As a parent of 3 kids, I have so many fond memories of them growing up. We have photo albums full of pictures and awards. Like any parent, I am so proud of my kids. But, as you know, there are times when we are not so proud of them; times when they do or…Read More
Waiting On The Lord
We all, at some time or another, find ourselves waiting for the Lord. We are expecting Him to show up in a mighty way. But what do we do while we are waiting? We may have to wait a few days, a few weeks, a few months, or maybe even a few years. What helps…Read More
Living the Way We Pray
Our lives should be consistent with the way we pray. We should not pray one way and live our lives in a totally different way. I am sure you have heard the old saying – “if you’re going to talk the talk, you’ve got to walk the walk.” Other old sayings also let us know…Read More
