Digitalis (Discarded Heroes, Book 2) I'm half way through Digitalis and all I can say is "wow".  The action is fast paced.

We All Need a Wayne in Our Lives

Every year people make resolutions that they will never keep. Every day, someone plans to do something they will never complete.  And why is that? Because they don’t have a Wayne in their life.

If you have read Wayne’s bio, then you know that he is an accountant. He goes to his clients and they have to give him an accounting of what they…

Beeeeee Prepared!!

I watched the movie Hoodwinked with my family last night. It just plain made me smile! My wife asked me afterwards which character was my favorite and I said the Billy Goat. I couldn’t help but laugh out loud watching his song because it reminded me so much of my life as a Kids Pastor.

Unexpected things happen ALL the time in ministry, especially when there are kids involved. You…

Good books have great crisis.  Every miracle has to have a crisis.  People love to see miracles but don't want the difficult situations. 

What difficult situation do you see in your life or in the lives of people around you?
