What Impact Does Fear Have on the Economy?

Fear Scrabble Pieces

Humanly speaking, capitalism has made America one of the greatest economic successes in history.

Of course, we know that God ultimately has blessed America so that our country could become what it is today. But I believe he has blessed us because of our overall desire to do things the way he intended us to do them. Read Full Post

Little People, Big Thoughts- Part 02

Girl in Class

Yesterday I shared about my recent method for teaching the kids in my church. Rather than just telling them more Bible stories, I have structured my lessons to be focused more on answering questions they have. The results have been quite favourable for a variety of reasons.

Today, I want to tell you about Sunday School this last week. I was given the reins to the 3rd-5th grade class, but I did not have much time to prepare something. My good friend Drew Baby (if you don’t know who that is, yeah, that’s his nickname) also joined me in class. Read Full Post

W.I.L.D. 2011: Friday- The End of the Adventure

Feeding a chipmunk

Friday’s Journal Entry:

My blog as a melody for Christ

The subtitle of my website is “Serving the God I Love.” This blog willl hopefully be another way I can do that through the tool of writing. Just as an instrument is capable of playing more than one melody or emitting more than one style of music, I want to “play” more than one melody for Christ, and my love for writing is just another style of music that I want to use for Christ.
The sub-purposes of this blog are several. I want to use it to communicate my beliefs and convictions in a biblical manner as a resource for others who want to know my stand on different issues. Secondly, I want to use it as a personal method of learning, recalling things that I learn each week in school, church, and ministry so that the concepts I am taught will be further ingrained in my mind. Finally, I want this blog to be an avenue by which my family, friends, and church can stay up-to-date on what God is teaching me and doing in my life. If you are one of those people, thank you for your prayers and frequent words of encouragement.
May God be glorified through this blog, and I pray that others will also be challenged and encouraged through it. Read Full Post
