    He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever. I will be his Father, and he shall be my son. —2 Samuel 7:13–14 Not having a father in one’s life can be difficult for a child. I experienced this void when I was young. […]

  Jesus said, “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?” (Matthew 6:25). Jesus made it CLEAR: Never worry as we see the apostle Paul […]

Earth Wind & Fire, from their beginnings in the 70’s until now, has been one of the top bands in the world of music, regardless of genre – and one of my all time favorites. I enjoyed the high level of musicianship, but especially the way they brought a spiritual element into their R+B and […]

Ever since I first learned how, I’ve loved to read. I read nearly anything and everything that crosses my path, from the back of a cereal box to weighty academic publications (if I can get through them!) If I had to pick a favorite genre, it would be autobiographies of famous people, but by no […]
