16. My Dad’s Last Day – A Remarkable Story of Answered Prayer

Forgive Yourself For Being Stupid

The Year I had to forgive myself for being stupid happened on Easter weekend.  Forgiving yourself may be the best thing you ever do. My dad turned 79 this year. He gets around pretty good for a fellow his age. He likes to show off by dancing a little jig around the house to prove […]

Why I Stopped Blogging in April 2014

My trip to Israel altered my life.  I stopped blogging, writing, speaking and almost everything else I was doing before I left for Israel. I needed more time to process this experience.
