I am not one to make excuses when I’m not productive. I am remarkable at abstaining from any activity that would challenge or stretch me. It would not be totally incorrect to call me lazy. Oddly enough, this week, I found that I had a great desire to work. For five days straight writing is… Continue reading Writing Fiction When the World is on Fire
I am a fan of the Success Wiz app. I’ve mentioned it before. It’s a great app for identifying and organizing goals. It was recently brought to my attention that I wasn’t as focused as I thought I was. I didn’t know where I was heading but I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go… Continue reading Reviewing Your Goals

We don’t have to see God in order to believe that He is and that He is a rewarder to those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews… Continue reading What if Your Faith Fails?
On the first day of the eighth grade, my son and I went to Meet the Teacher Night. He hadn’t seen any of his school friends all summer, so he was surprised when they showed up and were, according to him, as tall as NBA players. No joke, everyone, even the girls, towered over my… Continue reading Am I Growing?
