    When I was between my sophomore and junior years of college, I was happy to be able to participate in a summer missions project. Growing up as a Baptist kid in Southern Baptist churches, it was natural that I continued my denominational association in college. Right across the street from the University of New...

    Yesterday morning, I was grateful to play hooky from church and just enjoy the quiet of a Sunday morning at home. After my chores, I climbed into a chair at the bar table in the back of my kitchen, opened my journal, and then opened Mark Batterson’s book, “In A Pit With A Lion...

    Looking Out for the Lost Ones

    by  •  • LifeHelps • 0 Comments

    Sometimes I like to stop and think about David- yeah, that guy in the Bible- because the Good Book says that God really loved David, because David was “a man after God’s own heart.” I try to figure out what that means, what David did to have a heart like God’s, because I’d like...

    It is timely for me that I picked up Steven Pressfield’s book “Turning Pro” recently, and cracked it open this weekend. A quick read, the book totally spoke to me about where I have been of late.
