Conquering the fear of coming out

Conquering the fear of coming out
It took a life time to come to the point of accepting myself. Fear controlled me. Don’t make the same mistake I did. This is something that I have written on quite a bit but I feel it always good to keep telling the story. ALL through high school and for many years after, I... Read more »

Struggling with obedience and listening to the Holy Spirit

How often to we really listen to that voice inside that is telling us to do something?  If we want to do it, then there is no problem.  But how often do we listen to that voice when we REALLY don’t want to do that something that little voice is telling us to do? In... Read more »

Stopping the pointing fingers and start owning up to our own sin

There is one word in the English language that will turn off the ears of many Christians and make them squirm in their seats.  One word that many don’t want to hear – let alone talk about – unless they are the ones throwing the stones from their own glass houses.  What’s the word you...

Dear Professor Hawking - The Afterlife is no Fairytale

“I think the convention of afterlife is a fairytale for people afraid of the dark.” Whoa! Stop the Bus.  What?

Face to Face with the Devil's Own - A Personal Struggle of Evil and Faith
I have never been one to really enjoy a horror story or spooky movie from Hollywood.  I was so sensitive as a child, I hid under the coffee table when the Wicked Witch appeared in the Wizard of Oz.   But as I got older, I became more and more fascinated with real ghost stories.  So... Read more »

Facing the Future with Faith

I’ve seen the look before.  I’ve seen it on the faces of doctors when I worked as a veterinary tech and I am sure it flashed across my own face a few times when I was a paramedic. Unfortunately, I have seen it directed at me more times than I care lately. It’s not one... Read more »
