Your Story and the Author of Salvation

Your Story and the Author of Salvation

Hebrews 5:9- “And being made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation to all who obey him.” I’ve always liked the term Author of Salvation.

Finding Inspiration

Writer’s block- I hate it, and boy I’ve had a fair share of it this past year. It’s paralytic and disheartening. The reason it pops its ugly head up varies, but all agree that nothing cures a bout of writer’s block like a good ole dose of inspiration. Writer’s aren’t the only people in need… Continue Reading

Design Flaw?

I consider myself a patient man. I know this because it’s been tested. At my last job I’ve been spat on, only to remain calm and to use the act as a teachable moment. My student’s routinely cussed me out instead of accepting classwork, or would kindly tell me what I could do to myself… Continue Reading

Being a father, I now have a more accurate understanding of the cost to love a child unconditionally.  To think I have to keep this same… Continue Reading

First Person Vs. Third Person: 3 Points to Consider

Five Ways to Combat the Stay-at-Home Blues

I’m no pro, but I’ve done the stay-at-home gig long enough to understand the Stay-at-Home Blues. As parents, we love our kids and cherish the opportunity we have to spend each day with them, but every once in a while we can find ourselves stuck in a depressed rut. Some wish they had more time… Continue Reading

Promises We Don’t Really Believe

Promises  are a simple concept. Dictionary.com states that a promise is a declaration that something will or will not be done. It’s absolute. You can make a promise, but if it doesn’t follow through then it really wasn’t a promise to begin with, it can only be a promise if it becomes true. Why do… Continue Reading
