Dear Praying Friends, What an honor it is to be spiritually wealthy! It is a cause of great joy that we know we are saved and on our way to Heaven. This is not something we “hope for,” but rather something we know according to the precious promise of God. I John 5:13. Having said that, it...

I am sure that just about everyone that sees or hears the phrase, “Just Do It.” knows this is the slogan for Nike. Nike is a company involved in selling sports equipment and shoes. Their slogan is simply to get people out there doing what ever sport they want to do without being the best or having prepared everything that...

Dear Friend, May was a milestone month for our family. We finally finished getting our last two children through college. Rachel and Joel graduated from West Coast Baptist College on May 10th.

Dear Friend, It was great to be able to stay home for two weeks during February. Up until the first week of February, we did not have a great deal of snow and much of it melted after a few days. However, things have changed. We have received over five feet of snow this month and none of it has...

Dear Praying Friends, I am looking forward to the next two weeks. I will be able to stay home for two full weeks for the first time in over a year. I am sure Beth has a good bit planned on her “honey do” list for me, and I have a lot of things that I want to get done...
