Is Not Talking Cruel
Morning friend, I’d appreciate your prayers. I’ll be speaking at the River Conference this weekend at Prestonwood Baptist Church near Dallas, TX.

Is My Hope Realistic?
Morning friends, For me, Christmas is the season for quiet. For stillness. For reflection on the reality of “Emmanuel, God with us” Pray for me that I would know that God is in this place.

I Feel Like Such A Failure To God
Morning friends, This week I’m traveling to Toronto, Canada for some meetings. It’s so beautiful here. I wish I could stay longer. I’ve loved Vancouver, BC when I vacationed there a few years ago.
