By Pastor Troy Dorrell Over the course of my professional and vocational career, I have been a reader. I enjoy books and the learning process, and I have found that few things in life have benefitted me as much as my time in a good books and what I have extracted from them. During and […]
By Pastor Dorrell A number of years ago, we had a skunk problem at our house. Our home backs up to a field that (at that time) had a large population of the odoriferous creatures. Well, a number of them decided to take up residence under the deck in our back yard. We probably would […]
By Pastor Troy Dorrell The Bible teaches us that we are to direct our thinking toward those things that honor God and are good for us. Part of the reason for this is that our thinking takes us somewhere. When we direct and align our thinking with the Bible and wisdom, we find life and […]
By Jim Ramsey What a busy world I enjoy! (or maybe, endure!) I often jokingly tell our seniors: “Life sure gets a lot more simple at our ‘life stage doesn't it!'” –NOT! Truth is, at the age of 65+ it seems like my Daily Planner is more crowded than ever. I was thinking of an activity […]
By Angel Meléndez There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer. – Proverbs 30:24-25 Wow! What lessons Agur learned from four small creatures, which, despite having certain weaknesses, had more wisdom to teach than many wise […]
By John Mardirosian Have you had a question and you didn't know where to turn for answers? Have you ever been lost, and experienced the sinking feeling in your gut that goes with it? Have you ever been unsafe, felt vulnerable, and didn't know where to find protection? God doesn't want his children to feel […]
By Jesse Becker I was recently asked about the morality of music. In other words, is there good music and is there bad music? This question has been asked a lot and answered in many different ways. This short discussion is not going to address the lyrics, but just the music underneath. For anything to […]
A Book Recommendation By Daniel Fleet Being a perfect dad is impossible. Being a good dad isn't. But for most men being a good dad doesn't come naturally. It takes hard work, determination, grit, and a lot of prayer. I have two young daughters that I adore and I remind myself frequently that I only […]
By Jim Ramsey For me, as well as for all seniors, an increased demand for attention to personal physical health and well-being is a big part of the “package” that comes with aging. As one who has been blessed with 10 years and 3 months of life beyond quintuple bypass surgery [April, 2006] I have […]
By Pastor Troy Dorrell In a recent conversation with someone I was reminded of a principle that we would all do well to remember. We were talking about some of today's great college athletes who never fulfilled their potential. Though exceptionally talented; they failed to succeed in both sport and life. The reason was because […]
By Jim Ramsey According to financial guru Dave Ramsey (who, for sure, claims no kinship to me) I am the “nerd” of our family! I don't know how successful I am at the ongoing process of budgeting, but I sure do spend a goodly amount of time crunching (or crushing!) numbers. Honestly, Linda and I […]
By Daniel Fleet Determine your priorities. What do you care about? How can you develop in those areas? Have goals for personal health and productivity. Think about ways to spend time with family. Develop your schedule. After determining what is important, work those goals into your schedule. If it's not scheduled, it probably won't get […]
By Pastor Troy Dorrell America's moral and ethical decline is a spiritual problem and not a political one. The fabric of our culture has changed as our nation's Christian capital has diminished and the worldly values of consumerism, feminism, pluralism, and egalitarianism have taken hold. To think we can combat these philosophies and change people's […]
By Jim Ramsey I recently was sent the following funny, entitled “AGING: ONE PLUS ONE” “Three elderly men went to the doctor for a memory test. The doctor asked the first, “What is one plus one?” “Two hundred seventy-four” he answered. He asked the same question of the second man- “What is one plus one?” […]
By Jesse Becker We have all experienced dark days in our lives. Some of us know the loss of a loved one. Some know the difficulties of illness or pain. Some have lost the security of a job. We've all experienced personal failure. Most of us know the dim light of the unknown. While we […]
By Jim Ramsey The title for this blog article is borrowed from the Wall Street Journal (Monday, March 21, 2016 issue) It zeroes in on retirees, and has some very insightful points that merit serious consideration, even by those of the younger generation in planning for their future. This article, written by Dr. Marc E. […]
By Daniel Fleet Your marriage is a wonderful and unique gift that God has entrusted to you. God teaches us that the relationship you have with your spouse is to be exclusive and enjoyed! It's easy for life to get busy, and often one of the first things placed on the backburner is our marital […]
    Proverbs 22:6 says: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. I believe that child training is the most obviously neglected element in raising children today. To be more precise, I believe intentional and purposeful training is the most neglected element. The [...]
For the past 21 years, it has been the joy of my life to be married to my wife, Teri. Together, the Lord has blessed us with seven children and years of wonderful memories and experiences. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate our marriage somewhere around an 11 or 12. However, [...]
By James Osborne of Fox News  (link to original article here) A Christian evangelical group that works to improve the lives of underprivileged children says it has been prohibited from conducting Bible study classes in public housing projects in Tulsa, Okla., potentially violating a Supreme Court ruling that upheld religious groups’ right to the use of public institutions.  For [...]
During the month of June, I will be writing a number of articles entitled “Hope for the Home,” a series intended to help strengthen relationships in our families. Today—more than ever—our homes are under fire and imperiled as never before. Our busy schedules, financial pressures and the loss of time together threaten to make our [...]
Outliers is a fascinating look into the reasons some people succeed and others do not. Malcolm Gladwell’s research debunks some popular notions about why people make it to the top of their professions and reinforces the simple principle of hard work. His main thesis is that success is primarily a function of privileged opportunity coupled [...]
And it came to pass, when the time was come, that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because [...]
