Prolonged drug use impairs judgment and the ability to focus for long periods of time. In my new book “Lifelong Sobriety” I provide short, precise and highly accessible chapters. Each chapter is designed to teach about or change a specific behavior.

Travers, the writer of the iconic Mary Poppins novels. For those of you unfamiliar with the premise of the movie, it centers on the development of the 1964 Walt Disney Studios film Mary Poppins.

Although the editorial... Read More
Jesus Christ graced Ron with salvation late in his college career at the University of California, Berkeley, graduating in 1974. In entering his first church ministry, a lack of a Biblical material on education led him to the Christian History Movement and the works of R.J. Rushdoony. Since 1980, Ron has studied and taught the Biblically and historically identified applied-faith theology and philosophy outlined in this book.
