Never underestimate how much work your pastor puts in during the week. Here are four things you can do to help.
In her lovely book The Silent Noisy Night, author Jill Roman Lord touches the inquisitor in all of us as she explores the idea that Jesus was born on a not-so-silent night after all!
Every day I watch Brynna, my daughter, sit and read books to the littler girl she finds in the mirror. Though she is eleven years old, she is functionally still a toddler and is non-verbal for the most part. She doesn’t play like other children play, she doesn’t run, she doesn’t play tag, but she absolutely loves her books.
When I graduated from High School my mom gave me a book. She wasn’t the first mom to do so, and she wont be the last. It’s sort of become a tradition, a standard gift to give a young lad or lass about to begin their journey into a sometimes dark and dangerous world. The book wasn’t about winning friends or influencing people, it wasn’t about making money, or achieving fame. It was a little book by Dr. Suess called “Oh the Places You’ll Go.”
I would like to take a few moments to thank everyone who took time from their day to Like, Share, and comment on our posts today regarding our book, The Crucible’s Fire. I really don’t have the words, and if you know me, that is really rare. As of right now we have climbed to #24,982 on Amazon’s Best Seller List. I don’t even know what that means really, other than we were somewhere around 350,000 yesterday.

It’s LAUNCH DAY and we want this to be a HUGE release. Head on over to Amazon right now and pick up your copy. If you have read it already, please leave a review, it will really help us on rankings. Thank you for all those who have shared and helped to promote this book. I pray it touches lives and brings hope and encouragement.
This coming May Brynna will turn 12 years old. To be honest, we weren’t sure we would ever make 12 days, much less 12 years. Today I was watching her walk across the living room unassisted as she plopped herself down to watch her seven billionth episode of Blue’s Clues. For some reason I was stunned in that moment at just how much she had grown and how much she had changed. I always think of Brynna as “the baby” though she is far from it and today, that hit home.
