I love doing puzzles. It was a hobby that turned into a passion there for a while. I was fascinated by dragons in high school, so most of the puzzles I did had dragons somewhere within the photo. I had one where a wizard had just defeated a dragon and smoke was coming up off… Continue reading The World’s Largest Puzzle
Dear friend, Are you hurting right now? Are you sitting with your head tucked between your knees, crying in shame because you have given in to temptation? Are you lying in bed with a stained pillow from the tears being shed as you try to figure out what in the world is going on? You… Continue reading Dear Struggling Friend
I do not play golf anymore...unfortunately. It has become too expensive for my budget. But as a young person I use to play ever summer at our local public courses in Shreveport and Bossier City. These were not gorgeous courses like the ones you see the pros play on but I had fun playing, none… Continue reading Stay The Course

I will not go into the details of this young man's life out of respect. I will share the ideas or thoughts God gave me while listening to him speak… Continue reading Jesus’ Wrecker Service
Check out this awesome quote from dear Tosin’s dad…
“Tosin, you can’t live to please everyone. If you tried, you’ll never be who God made you. What pleases the first person you meet might not please the next, soon you’ll forget who you really are, and you’ll be a chameleon changing colours only to survive but never really living!”
How many of us wish our parents had said that to us as teens?
Now, go read Tosin’s amazing post! Heck, if your like me, read it twice. Then share it so others can be ministered to.
I’m dented. In many places, I have dents – dents and scratches from the ‘hit-and-runs’ of life and her mercenaries. Dents from her words and his actions and dents from their stares. I’ve lost, in many ways, the purity of my identity; the way my Creator fashioned me: for the sake of conformity.
I dent, daily.
I struggle. I remember being young and looking for love in all the wrong places because I was consumed by a need – an empty space inside that needed to be filled, so I filled it with all the wrong things and all the wrong bits around the wrong people. I dented my identity to fit into those circles when my mould wasn’t so elastic, so it broke . . . and I still struggle.
“You’re too loud, hush!”
“You’re too playful, halt!”
You’re too . . . not like me, stop!”

I believe it is time to try something else a little different. I am planning on doing a three part series, with this one being...well...the introduction. There are two reasons for me wanting to do this. The first is the most obvious...I have a tendency to ramble and/or get off topic. The second reason is… Continue reading The Bond Of 3 Cords | Part 1
What if today was your last day here on earth and you knew it? I know a bad thought, right. But the truth is...each one of us will die one day and we have no true idea when. You could be walking in the mall and have a heartache like my best friend's brother did.… Continue reading What Would You Do If Today Was Your Last?
