How God Interrupted My “Quiet” Time with a Noisy Cricket

Posted on

Monday morning I woke up with a plan. I was going to spend time journaling (that’s how I process best), talking to the Lord, and listening for His response. More than anything else, I needed to hear His voice. I was feeling vulnerable and anxious about a past failure (regret) because I spent most of […]

Today’s Guest Post by Award-Winning Author Latayne C. Scott – Priska’s Betrothal

Scott, was in January 2014 when I e-mailed her to ask her permission to use a quote from The Shout of the Bridegroom: Understanding Christ’s Intimate Love for the Church, a book she co-wrote with the late Dr. Glenn Greenwood.

Why Every Christian Should Be Doing the Happy Dance

Posted on

I double dog dare you to try to sit still while listening to “Happy Dance,” the most fun-loving song on MercyMe’s Lifer album. It might even be the most fun-loving song in all of Christendom. (It would get my vote!) And if this ditty doesn’t get you dancing, there’s a good chance that you are wearing concrete […]

Are You the Ideal Candidate for My Launch Team?

Posted on

No man (or woman) is an island. My efforts alone will not get my book into the hands of every believer in Christ who longs to enjoy a richer love relationship with Him. Are you one of those believers? If so, you might be the ideal candidate for my debut book launch team. I’ve got […]
