Pop Culture vs. The Bible: Intro

Our culture is saturated with innumerable man-adjusted illustrations, images, and suppositions about Biblical teachings which contribute to widespread sinful behavior. But because it’s so pervasive, prevalent, and popular it’s taken as the norm, as harmless, as something to aspire to. [Yet] God’s people continue to perish for lack of knowledge. {Click on Read Original Post to read the whole blog.}

Life on the Rapids

Life to me is like those rapids, it comes at you fast, you don’t know what’s ahead, you know you’re going to hit some hard spots but you don’t know how you’re going to get through them until you get to them. You’re afraid of falling…. {Follow the link to read the full post.}

Samson's Purpose was Greater than Marriage

Can you imagine knowing your purpose from birth? And knowing everything your parents did for you was preparation to fulfill that purpose? Samson knew, yet he still sinned…. He allowed his flesh to rule him even though he experienced the power of the Spirit of God strengthening him on occasion. [Click below to read the full post.]

Show Me the Love

Occasionally, I have to remind people that I am a work in progress, just like them. Though I continue to strive, I have not reached the mark (Philippians 3:12-14), just like you. When I first read God’s instruction to Hosea, I was taken aback. I felt sorry for him. Goodness, to be explicitly instructed to take an adulterous spouse back! That couldn’t be me!

Our Nakedness

Some argue that Adam and Eve knew no shame before the fall because they were innocent. The argument suggests they had no knowledge of good and evil. I think that’s rather simplistic. Adam and Eve were made in the image of their creator. They were connected to their source. They had all the knowledge they needed and access to whatever they wanted. (Read full post)

Firstfruits of All Your Crops

However, when you love others, share your joy, spread peace, are patient, kind and good the people on the receiving end usually can’t help but to reciprocate. Such behavior starts a chain of sorts. Sooner or later, someone is going to ask you about your faith, your beliefs, the God you serve and the church you attend.

Saved from Nice

Nice translates to dishonest to me. People try to be “nice” by not hurting your feelings, so they misrepresent their feelings, their thoughts, their ideas. They misrepresent who they are. Because they are being “nice”, you end up interacting with a false representative. (Read the whole blog by clicking on “View Original Post”)

“Honestly, I’ve been enjoying reading your book as I proofread it. The last few books I’ve proofread/edited have been a really technical healthcare-related manual and a very academic history book, so I’m relishing the opportunity to work on something that is more personal and lively.

I’ve experienced the sadness, joy and frustrations of your life as I read through your manuscript, and there have been some lessons I’ve picked up on that I can apply to my own life.

I definitely think you have something in this book that can help others. What you have to offer is a sensitivity coupled with an intelligence, both of which you’re willing to really “put out there.” Your sensitivity allows you to really feel your pain or happiness and reflect upon those emotions. Your intelligence affords you the chance to dissect your experiences and understand what they mean, as well as find ways to communicate them to others so that they can benefit from them. Not everyone can do that.

I look forward to reading more, with the hope that your book ends on a very positive, hopeful note…. with you overcoming the obstacles and pitfalls of life to continue to find happiness and self-fulfillment.

Thanks.”
