Cartoon Drawings

They were mine, but that's how I knew this was a dream from my Lord. I cannot sketch or paint well. I've never taken classes, so my artistic masterpieces consist of stick figures and arrows on Pictionary paper. Let me tell you my dream. Then the significance of these cartoon drawings will be clear. One... Continue Reading →

A Prayer

Somehow, some way, we've all felt it. We've experienced it, either directly or indirectly. We have used and successfully walked away, or we are still using. Some of us can control the substances in our lives, many of us cannot. Many have recognized their struggle and have addressed it, many more have not. Still, we... Continue Reading →

Strength In Numbers

What once discouraged me now excites me! Conversations that were once a stumbling block for me, have now become an exciting opportunity. I was raised in a very legalistic denomination. I had friends that were from other denominations, but when I asked questions about what they believed and why, I became confused. Many of them... Continue Reading →

Right Answer, Wrong Prayer

In the process... Continue Reading →

Wind Chimes

At times, my children have asked how I know our heavenly Father has spoken to me. They've asked me how he has given messages. Our Lord has expressed himself through a timely song on a radio, or through a comment someone made that I knew deep inside of my spirit was from him. Often when... Continue Reading →


When I was growing up I thought of God as a large cosmic man on a glowing throne looking down on us. I don't know how I came up with this idea, but I always imagined him watching me and saying, "I saw that! I saw that, too!" Because of this preconceived notion, I didn't... Continue Reading →

Hang On

When I prayed asking the Lord to remove anything from my life that would keep me from growing closer to him, the answer sure didn't look like I thought it would. When a girlfriend and I walked around the local school praying for the children and her son, the answer sure didn't look like we... Continue Reading →
