I recently read that one of the most popular college courses today is on positive psychology and instructing students on how to find happiness. There is even a degree in the Science of Happiness. It stands to reason that everyone has a desire to
Seed and Soil
February 2, 2018
I feel prompted by the Lord to expound upon “seed-time & harvest-time”. God’s Word is a seed and His full purpose for our life is in the seeds that He plants. You may know that painful hurts during childhood can cause your heart to be full of

As we go about our daily life, it is easy to get caught by the thorn bushes and tangled up in briars with everyday conversations. The snare I’m talking about is that of coming into agreement with negativity. It reminds me of a walk through the
Are You Mature?
January 26, 2018
Have you ever called your doctor’s office to get an appointment and they put you on hold? They may say, “Please hold for one moment”, and 10 minutes later you are still holding. That call can be so annoying, even if soothing music is playing while you
A Critical Lesson
January 23, 2018
It’s always true that at the beginning of a new year, everyone is ready for something new. The Scripture, “Behold I make all things new”, found in Revelation 21:5 is music to our ears. So, if you read a devotional like the one I posted recently about
Is It Time?
January 17, 2018
I believe we can know by the Spirit of God when it’s time to move forward. But, we have to be still to know. We can know by the peace in our heart, and many times we can see with our eyes visual confirmations when it’s time to take the next step forward.
The Best Resolution
January 9, 2018
The New Year is here and everyone is thinking about New Year’s resolutions. Common resolutions are: more exercise, a diet, or to be a better spouse. Any of these are a good idea, BUT, the best and most effective of all resolutions is to spend

I wanted to share with you the first verse of The Comeback by Danny Gokey: “After a season of night falls and push backs, After the heartache of wrong turns and sidetracks, Just when they think they’ve got you game, set, match – Here comes the
Run With the Vision
December 27, 2017
The vision that the Lord gave us 30 years ago is being fulfilled and continues to unfold. We plan to keep running with this vision of seeing Hearts Healed and Families Restored. This has been an amazing journey! We believe that 2018 is
Are You Excited?
December 23, 2017
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given;” (Isaiah 9:6a) Christmas is my favorite time of year and has been for as long as I can remember. As I think back on Christmas’ as a young boy, I remember the excitement of getting ready for
Get Things Moving
December 13, 2017
Offenses shut down communication and harden hearts. Compassion, though, will soften hearts and relationships can begin moving forward again. I have often ministered to older people who are overtaken with arthritis so severely
November 28, 2017
As Christ followers, you and I are like strangers in this world. By faith, we should be living from an entirely different realm of thinking. Our real life, or new life, is hidden in Christ, high above the troubles of this world. We should not live from a place of
Don’t be Offended!
November 14, 2017
“A brother offended is harder to win over than a fortified city…” (Proverbs 18:19a) The first emotion you feel when you are hurt by someone is typically anger. BUT, you can be angry and sin not by releasing the person and letting them go. Be a
The Healing Process
November 3, 2017
The healing process is much like clearing out a flower garden that has been overtaken by weeds and debris for a long time. The weeds must be pulled, the stones and debris removed, before anything will grow. You may look at a broken
