  • ‘Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.’ (Psalm 127:1)

    In my spare time I work as a freelance writer for an online content company writing home improvement articles for several national businesses and also catalog copy for Sears’ and Kmart’s websites.

    So, for more than a year now I’ve been writing about roofing and rain gutters and HVAC systems and energy efficient windows and the pros and cons of heat pumps and solar heating.

  • It’s perfectly clear that prayer really can and does change things

    Last week I wrote a little bit about the prayer week at my church.

    I had committed to go every morning and pray for 30 minutes about a certain particular situation. Here are some of my observations from each day:

    Day 1: Well, I did it. I actually prayed for a half hour. As I was praying, I thought about the wind and that Jesus said the Holy Spirit, like the wind, blows where it wills.

  • Old Christmas, good people help with rethinking Christmas

    If your concern is for your kids to behave, it’s hard to beat the leverage of Christmas.

    Kids live with a December pressure to “be good” at all costs, especially as being good might be tied to a certain someone’s Naughty or Nice List. As kids seem to know, in our modern version of Christmas “good” is directly correlated to gifts: be good, get gifts.

  • Man brought curse on the earth; God is good

    Have you ever been accused of something you did not do? Have you ever been blamed for something that you had no part of? Probably so.

    In writing this article, I want to point out that God sometimes gets a “Bad Rap.” He is accused of destruction, dismay and even annihilation. God gets bad press! Earthquakes, hurricanes, famines, E-bola outbreaks – somewhere along the line God usually gets the blame.

  • May our lives be filled with ‘thanks’ and ‘giving’

    Thanksgiving is a time when we Americans gather together with family and friends enjoying a feast as we reflect on the things in life in which we are grateful.  

    1 Thessalonians 5:18 states, “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”  It doesn’t say give thanks once a year, or rejoice only for the things you are grateful for.  It simply states, “In every thing... give thanks.”
