Do You Worry You’re Not Doing Enough?

Like many of you, sometimes I wonder if I’m doing enough. For the Lord, for my family, for the horses, as a good steward, and as a writer. I haven’t posted much since the last newsletter. This month’s (April 2018) list of articles is uncomfortably short. Have I let you down? Shirked? What happened? Life. Fiction writers dream up stories,

Can You Prove Christianity?

“Is Christianity true just because the inerrant Bible says it is?” I like this question better, “Is Christianity provable?” It’s simpler and delivers the gut punch.

Commitment – The Death of Pinky Swear

Things were different when I was a kid. We didn’t pinky swear or make promises lightly. When someone made a promise to me, I believed they’d follow through, and they usually did. Anything less was unthinkable. “Your word is your bond.” “We did the deal on a handshake.” “Let your yes be yes, and your no be no.” The “Pinky

Tribulation to Transformation – God Wastes Nothing

In retrospect, my most painful life experiences are the ones most valuable to me today. I don’t want to relive one day of the trials, but it was time well spent. Not only did I learn that God is unfailing in His presence and care, but living through the toughest times prepared me to serve God by serving others. A
