Almost 40 years in ministry and more excited about Jesus and biblical truth than ever!
Interests: There are four profound changes that occur when someone embraces Jesus as his Savior. They receive the ability to hear what God says, the wisdom to prefer God's way of doing things, the power to change, and the capacity to serve others without regard for self. There is nothing more exciting to me than encouraging and celebrating this transformation in others.

The Bible expressly identifies a profound parental priority that is ignored by the majority of parents who claim to have a heart for God. If you will learn what the phrase, "these words," refers to in Deuteronomy 6, it will dynamically improve your ability to make a lasting difference in the lives of your children. Continue reading
