I have changed my Twitter handle. I used to be @mnormancarguy. It was too long and didn't really communicate who I am (although I am a huge car guy.) I am not @kidminmatt on Twitter. If you are…Continue

The Throne Room

Posted on May 30, 2016 at 8:05am 0 Comments

Sometimes when I pray I like to close my eyes
and imagine that I’m seeing the throne room of God.
I close my eyes and, without speaking a word a picture begins to appear.
Soon it’s like I’m there and I’m no longer here.
There before me are two giant doors,
not to keep me out, but to welcome me in.
I want them to open, I want to go through,
But I cannot forget, my past sin.
Without a word and…

Poem: Mom

Posted on May 27, 2016 at 8:00am 0 Comments

Nine months in the womb,

you carried me through.

Every breath that you took,

I shared with you.


The miracle of birth,

together all the way.

From my first breath,

still together today.


Motherly love,

And such a caring voice.

You knew right from wrong,

but you gave me the choice.


Cause of all of your love,

and all that you do.

Our love and this day,

we all give to…

I have been writing poetry since high school. Some of it I think is quite good. Some of it you may not think to be.…


I’m a Nurse

I’m a nurse.
I have seen many people die.
I have watched husbands lose wives and wives lose husbands.
I have watched children lose parents and, even worse, I have watched parents lose children.
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like being a nurse, this is what it’s like. In the midst of  all this, what keep us human?
I have stood by while doctors gave a first time diagnosis of cancer, and I’ve seen the fear in the eyes of the…

You can tune in Saturdays on TBN or view online.  This show deals with tough issues kids are facing today and will change children's hearts for a lifetime.  Program schedule on Saturdays:  8:30 a.m. (PST), 9:30 a.m. (MT), 10:30 a.m. (CT), and 11:30 a.m. (EST).
