2 Chronicles 7:14 Is Not Written to You

I am the oldest of 12 children, and I have 7 brothers.

It has been 7 years since I last lived in my parents’ home, and I now have a family and a house of my own.

As with almost every home with children, bedrooms become messy and need cleaning at my home. It’s not unusual for parents to tell a child to clean his room. Read Full Post

Satan Loves Revival

The morning of May 18, 1980, started off like any other for Harry Truman, the 83-year-old owner of the Mount St. Helens Lodge. Truman had lived near the mountain for over 50 years, and he refused to leave his home despite increasing signs of volcanic activity in the weeks leading up to the eruption.

Preparing the Bride

In the past, I wasn’t the biggest fan of weddings. As a child I went to weddings with my family and a couple times in my “later years” I had the privilege of playing music for the weddings of close family members or friends.

I enjoyed the food though, and if I have enough mental capacity to remember any of the specific weddings I attended, I literally can┬átell you what food or punch almost every one of them served: Chicken enchiladas, pork roast, Famous Dave’s, grape punch with vanilla ice cream- to name a few.
