America 2016: Why Not Voting Is Not An Option

The 2016 US Presidential Election is just days away. Still, many people in our country remain undecided as to how…or if…they plan to vote. At no time in recent history have we as a people been so deeply and hotly divided. Many continue to be seriously conflicted about both major candidates. Yet this election, perhaps more than any in the last four…

Forty April Fool's Days--An Unfinished Seven Mountain Story


What I've Done With My Life So Far Instead of Going to Seminary

The Real Key

Alright Son, so you want to live a long and peaceful life?  Then don’t forget the things I’ve been teaching you.  The simple rules.  Don’t be like a fool who lets good advice go in one ear and out the other.  Don’t just write them down on a scrap of paper and then lose the paper!  Write them on your heart.

     Do you remember when you were little, and you kept your house key on a special chain you wore around your kneck?  When you got home, you could always open the door.  God’s truth…
