• The Depth of Confession

    Have you ever felt like something in your day was a little bit off?  Something that you couldn’t really put your finger on- just a feeling that something wasn’t quite right? And the more you think about it, the more you get the suspicion that the thing that isn’t quite right is… you? Okay, I’m […]

  • Christmas Morning Prayer

    Lord, You have come- this is what we celebrate today.  A perfect Savior, a merciful Lord, a loving Father- choosing to become like us, choosing to live in the same flesh, the same fallen Creation as His beloved. For He will save His people from their sins- was the message the angel spoke to Joseph. […]

  • A Humbled Heart

    We are mid-way through Advent, and though I know I’ve already given you plenty to read in my devotional The Wondrous Gift, I wanted to take a moment and share my heart with you about this year’s book. First, I fell short of my sales/distribution goal for this year’s book by over 150 books. My goal […]

  • When You Need Healing

    December 4: When You Need Healing The Miracle: 2 Kings 5:1-14 I don’t know how long I had been in the emergency room that September day. Hospital time always seems to be outside the realm of ordinary time. It’s measured by how long between interruptions for someone to check your vitals or to bring you […]

  • Finding Christmas

    Sunday, December 1, is the first day of Advent this year. If you regularly read my blog, you know that Advent is a big thing for me- so much so that I write a devotional every year to share with anyone who wants to participate in the season with me. I get a lot of […]

  • Home Building

    First, this entry is not about building a house. Not even on my bravest of days am I willing to tackle that topic!  No, the thoughts I’m having today are on a much broader plane than construction. The thing is, I’m really tired. Physically tired, and tired in other ways, too. But this tired is […]

  • It’s a Give-Away!

    Every year my Advent devotionals have included family projects that can be completed during the season. This year, the Advent project is to make or decorate a set of Christmons for your Christmas tree. Christmons are special symbols that are related to some aspect of Jesus. For example, the lamb signifies that Jesus is the […]

  • Little Miracles

    First, I want to thank those of you who have already purchased The Wondrous Gift Advent devotional this year. I will admit that it’s always overwhelming to think that anyone wants to read what I’ve written.  I always tend to think that my blogs are this private world of me and the random things that are […]

  • Seeds of Truth

    If you really want to see God do great things, then you have to find where He is working and join Him! This principle isn’t something that originated with me. It’s the basic premise of one of the most life-changing Bible studies I’ve ever done- Experiencing God, by Henry Blackaby. While I certainly don’t disagree with […]

  • The Wondrous Gift: Advent 2019

    Advent begins December 1 this year, and I’m excited to say that my book of Advent devotions is now available on Amazon. The Wondrous Gift is a collection of devotional readings focused on biblical miracles. This theme of miracles came from a point in my own heart and life where situations and circumstances were so […]
