Stories of Saints

As you know, I love a good book. I enjoy reading all kinds of books from deep theology to general Christian living, and from spiritual warfare to stories of people’s lives. I enjoy reading stories about people’s lives because often they are a mixture of exerting. There’s normally deep theological truths, experiences of the Lord’sContinue reading “Stories of Saints”

Mental Health Awareness

This week is Mental Health Awareness week (May 10th – 16th 2021). Mental health is a very relevant topic for people to be thinking about, especially after the year we’ve had and all of the challenges that COVID has thrown our way. But, simply raising awareness of mental health isn’t really enough. People need toContinue reading “Mental Health Awareness”

Kid’s Corner

If we want the children in our churches to grow up to be strong believers, then we need to teach them. We need to teach them the truth. They will be confronted with lies as they grow up. Their faith will be challenged. They must be prepared for that battleground. The training of kids doesn’tContinue reading “Kid’s Corner”

It is theContinue reading “Out of the Black Shadows”

One of the reasons that I don’t post often about is that sexualityContinue reading “Books about the bedroom…”

Evangelism… it seems to be the word that scares many Christians away and makes them run for the hills. People say that it’s difficult. People say that they don’t feel equipped. People say that they don’t have all the answers to every perceivable question that they may be asked. I’ve voiced many of these myselfContinue reading “Story Bearer”
