Prayer that changes your life

I’ll never forget when I recommitted my heart to Jesus Christ after going in an unhealthy direction with my life for several years.   There were miracles at that time when God was exposing his unconditional, unfailing love to me and his grace was being poured out like drinking from a firehouse.  It was one of...

Attitude Makes a Difference

The summer of 2011 and the following year was gut wrenching to say the least! I’ll spare you all the details but let me just say my family suffered great loss after stepping out to plant a church.

Overcoming the Storm

Have you ever been driving at night and allowed the headlights of the oncoming vehicle to catch your focus?  I have and the result was the noise of a loud horn (and probably a hand gesture by the driver of the other vehicle I couldn’t see because it was dark) and me coming to myself...

Family

Not long ago I was asked what I missed the most about being a Police Officer. Without hesitation I replied, “the relationships!” Sometimes I jokingly reply, “putting people in jail.”  I always get a strange look when I say that. The people I worked with, we were FAMILY!  We were close and could depend on...
