When You Feel Like Your Ship’s Sinking & There’s Nothing to Hold On To

how to teach kids the real meaning of Christmas

I tell them - Christmas isn't all about the gifts...  I know, how they glitter....how they catch the eye. It comes the same every year.

The truth about success we all need to know – and how it could make all the difference in the world

..when the heat's up and the debate goes on, & Trump argues with Clinton over who can build a stronger America -- I sneaked behind the door and pulled out an old post about a man who shared with me the truth on building a kingdom that will never end...

But we pray that in the simplicity of it all - this truth about success would bless your heart, and you'd find yourself standing on firmer ground ...excited about having a couple who shaped my faith and impacted my life, come to share life with us for a couple few days
