Latest Blog Post


Posted on November 4, 2013

When I was new in my Christian faith I attended one of my first Bible teaching seminars. I sat up front. I was there to hear a man who at that time, was one of America’s best known Bible teachers. I couldn’t wait. Suddenly, the host announced to us that the famous teacher would not [...]

Marriage Matters

Posted on May 13, 2013

Summer is almost here and I’m excited about what’s ahead in so many ways. Our annual Marriage conference at Disney World is coming up and it’s already sold out with a few people on the waiting list (We’re trying to ensure all can go.)
One of the things we enjoy most of [...]

Recent Reading

Posted on April 4, 2013

Putting away a few books I’d just read, I thought a comment or two on them may interest you, if you’re searching for escape, insight, or adventure.
Let me begin by admitting that my reading is very, very, versatile. Some may not be your “cup of tea”, half are not religious or Christian, [...]

The Importance of a Pastors Prayer Partner Ministry

Posted on August 18, 2012

I’m often asked if I could do ministry all over again, what would I do differently. My answer is clear. I’d begin a Pastors Prayer Partner ministry on day 1 or I’d not do ministry at all. Seriously. Ministry without a prayer ministry to me, is no ministry at all. Jesus said, “My Fathers House [...]

By-Passing Your Nazareth

Posted on August 17, 2012

One of the most important but undervalued matters in our lives is in the area of “process”. By nature we are selfish and want what we want when we want it. I’ve often illustrated this by referring to the new born baby. If the baby would wait to do his/her crying until morning when the [...]

Be Present

Posted on April 25, 2012

I’m not a “conference groupie.” I haven’t attended a Christian one in over a dozen years. I have been to a few corporate conferences, which are pretty impressive the past few years, but last week I went to one called Catalyst West at a church my son attends in Orange County, California. Funny [...]

New book-The Emotion Driven Life

Posted on February 7, 2012

I recently released my latest book The Emotion Driven Life. It was written as an effort to help people overcome the emotions that can disrupt our lives. Whether you realize it or not, every person is driven by something.
What drives your life? Is it money? Power? Popularity? Ambition? Validation? Acceptance? Pastor Rick Warren’s [...]

Barry the Bartender

Posted on September 9, 2011

One of my friends is Barry. Big guy, big smile and remembers everything..names, faces, events, stories, he has instant and amazing recall. We’ve been friends a few years now. He’s also a bartender by occupation. Neither of us go to the others work places, he says he works weekends too. But that hasn’t hindered the [...]

Open doors & closed doors

Posted on July 11, 2011

“Open doors, closing doors” are biblical phrases used by its’ writers to refer to divine guidance. Those sincerely seeking Gods will for their life accept the “open door/close door” experience peacefully. (Isaiah 45:1,2, Acts 14:27, I Corinthians 16:9, II Corinthians 2:12, Colossians 4:3, Revelation 3:8). We use the term in the secular world to [...]

Fathers Day

Posted on June 17, 2011

Several years ago I spoke on the subject, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad & Perfect Dad” for Fathers Day. I’ve never had such a response to any message before, ever. Over 500 e-mails flooded my box in the week following. In the message I mentioned that not everyone knew had the joy of great memories with [...]
