My father is a great salesman. A man with incredible talent. He's been working as a salesman in the furniture industry for over 40 years. He's simply the best "pitch man" I've ever heard! His customers are always mesmerized as he walks them through his showroom, presenting the season's new collections with great ease, passion, and professionalism. He's known for tapping his big diamond pinkie ring on the doors of the dining room china cabinets to bring attention to the detail in the glass. His shoes are always spit polished, and not the tiniest wrinkle can be found in his suit and tie.... Read More

Medicine and other sciences have advanced immensely since Antiquity. Unfortunately, many of their fundamental principles have barely spread beyond the circle of professionals and specialists. Even in the 21st century, important segments of the population still know less about their own health than about sports or entertainment celebrities.Hippocrates (460-370 BC), the most famous physician of Ancient Greece, already identified basic rules for protecting our health. However, although many generations have passed, his major discovery, the idea that sickness rarely happens by chance, is still... Read More
Today, the vast blue blanket seemed pale…the day looked dull…the waves had lost their passion and the winds blew with much less fancy…even the slow chirps of the birds had lost their melody…nothing that I adored primarily was of least attraction now…not even the mighty sight of those huge mountains that stood there with equal dignity as before!…And this made me hate them even more…they had promised to be my best friends…they were always there for me every second...but now they were acting insensitive, emotionless, cold, unaffected and total strangers!The running and flying sand seemed to hit...

"And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful" Col 3:15"Be thankful." Such a simple phrase, but what did Paul mean? Be thankful for what? To whom? Let's think about it.The first thing that comes to mind is to be thankful to God for giving us salvation through His Son, Jesus. That's good. If it weren't for that, our lives would really be meaningless. If there were no "eternity," why would we spend so much time being "good?" Without salvation, what purpose would there be in living for anyone by yourself? We all know self-centered people.... Read More
I became a believer in Writer's Conferences about five years ago. Oh, I'd been to one before, but hadn't been terribly impressed. Then my mother talked me into giving this local one a try. It was held in my current hometown, here on the Oregon coast and was much smaller than the one I'd been to up in Portland. Would it be too much of a stretch to say it changed my life? I will say I've gone back every year since and for the past five years been one of the volunteer organizers.
So why should you, a writer spend your hard earned money on traveling to and attending a writer's conference?... Read More
"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience" James 1:2-3Today this world is desperately attempting to redefine anything that would convict it of sin. Sin has become a very "relative" term. The world is attempting to say, "What is sin to you may or may not be sin to me. Everything is relative." Whether you realize it or not, this philosophy is being taught in our public schools. All students today, understand this principle. Simply said, "There are NO absolutes." Implied meaning, "There is NO God." Scripture tells... Read More
