With the final debate complete and less than two weeks until the election, have you made up your mind? When I look at the candidates running in the 2020 Presidential election, I see two vastly different individuals. Which, if any, deserves my vote? The short answer is that neither deserves a vote nor the opportunity … Continue reading Who Deserves My Vote?
I feel as if it's been a while since I last wrote regularly on this site. My life has taken me in different directions lately. The state of our nation has me deeply concerned, and I have been frequently distracted by the politics of our day, prompting me to publish a short book (Lives at … Continue reading Getting Back to Writing
Thirty years ago today, I walked into the gym for gymnastics practice but left on a stretcher, never to walk again in this lifetime. An accident shortly after my arrival at practice left me paralyzed from the chest down, a C5 quadriplegic. I just spent a fun evening celebrating with my family the life that … Continue reading Thank God

For some, God's dealings are subtle and barely noticeable. Such individuals are more receptive to the influence of the Holy Spirit than others, … Continue reading Remember
I came across the following verse as I was reading my Bible the other day. It falls amid a passage dealing with one's placement in life; whether an individual is married or single, slave or free. 17 Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called … Continue reading Life Assigned
When I make a promise, I do so, hoping that it is a part of God's will for me to fulfill it. From a human perspective, promises are declarations of intent. An individual intends to do something for someone else or with someone else in mind, but like any plans that a person makes, it … Continue reading Trust His Promises
