The Tin Cup - A Christmas Story
Sunday, November 25th, 2012 12:49pm

"The Tin Cup" is a short story I wrote two years ago as both a parable, and a simple way to celebrate Christmas.  It's a simple, yet touching look at the true meaning of Christmas, and an illustration of the purpose for Christ's nativity.  The story is free for you to read, share and enjoy ...

Battery Resizers - A Man's Best Friend In An Emergency
Sunday, September 23rd, 2012 1:09pm

Ever had one of those times where the lights were out (or even if they weren't) and you needed new batteries for something and went hunting for them in the house, but just didn't have that one right size?  Yeah, it happens a lot more often than most people realize.  For example, you have a ...

The Blessing of First Fruits
Saturday, September 22nd, 2012 6:39am

Lately I've been unwittingly embarking on an experiment in God's gracious hand of blessing.  Unwittingly in the fact that I didn't embark on it through my own choice.  God laid it on my heart and I followed.  The concept of "First Fruits" is this.  It's the first of whatever you ... View More

 
Making ends meet: It's not rocket science
Saturday, June 30th, 2012 11:11am

On Facebook today someone brought up a very interesting point.  Namely, how it's so hard to make ends meet these days.  Yes, I agree, it's increasingly harder to make ends meet.  However, I don't think it's so much to do with prices, or less pay, or other things.  A number of our ... View More

 
Needs vs Wants
Friday, April 27th, 2012 11:37am

Always be careful of what you *think* are needs, and what things really are. Case in point. A few years back I remember wanting some stuffed penguins and wanting them really badly. I mean, it was driving me up a wall. I got some freebie penguins at a convention I went to, had the things in my room o ... View More

 
A Fish Out Of Water
Saturday, November 19th, 2011 12:34pm

One of the things that bugs me to no end is authors who run around acting like they're God's gift to writing.  As much as they might believe that, and as famous as they might be, they're just one tiny fish in a great big sea.  Sure, the more successful ones may be luckier, or just happen t ...

When God Takes Up The Pen
Tuesday, November 15th, 2011 10:16am

I don't know if I should call this creepy, amazing, or simply proof that God is working behind the scenes in my writing, but I just came across one of the most amazing little vignettes this morning.  During the building of the story (I'm not going to tell you what it was, so as not to spoil the ...

Here's some things to think about in your life when deciding which path you will take, be it humility, or pride.* Humility builds bridges.  Pride burns them.* Humility makes friends of enemies.  Pride makes enemies of friends.* Humility heals wounds.  Pride makes them.* Humility tears ...

If life were easy, we'd have nothing to write about
Monday, August 29th, 2011 9:10am

One of the things I get a kick out of is how people look at my crazy life and say, "Your life sucks, I wish it were better."  I then kindly thank them for their thoughtfulness and promptly remind them that, as a writer, if I had a normal life, I'd have nothing interesting to write about. :roflY ...
