  This week on the podcast I am privileged to have an interview with a friend and former teacher of mine in my days at FIRE School of Ministry named Bert Farias. He and his son Daniel recently co-wrote a book called My Son, My Son: Fathering and Training a Holy Generation. It was an honor to be able to talk to Brother Bert Farias in this capacity. I remember being a little intimidated by him in my days in Bible college (which in all honesty, I was intimidated by all of my teachers [Continue reading...]

What Should I Write Next?

I Have a A Sincere Question For You, My Loyal Readers I thought I'd take a moment and ask you what would you like me to write about next? I've got about 8 drafts started or close to finished, two of which I believe need to age like fine wine and not rush to publish. One is on discipleship, which I'd like to do a lot more of before putting out a book on it (and share more stories from experience and not just theory). The other is on the Song of Solomon, my favorite book in the Bible, but [Continue reading...]
I was bursting at the seams to share this testimony.

God provided Ronald and his now-wife Nancy two teenaged girls in the neighborhood who were quite popular amongst their peers and were hungry to know Jesus. It became a domino effect; that was until their families found out we [Continue reading...]
From time to time I take a post on this blog to recommend books that I think are relevant to my audience. I'm a reading machine, and if I were to review every book I read, whether good or bad, this blog would be more of a review site than a blog. So, I truly wait until I feel like I should review one. That doesn't mean each time I review something it will be a five star review or a one star review where I'm totally bashing something. This is a book that I felt like I should recommend, especially [Continue reading...]
That’s the phrase that kept popping into my mind as I sat down to write this post. Normally I have a title after I’ve begun working on a post, but this time, I knew that’s what the title needs to be. The other night before heading for bed I saw my friend James had posted a Facebook status that was rather poignant, encouraging and profound. “Many opportunities are lost by those waiting for the goose that lays the golden egg, failing to realize the demand for normal geese eggs.” I [Continue reading...]
In the world of technology, there’s a very simple (yet in reality very complex) concept called “compatibility.” For example, there’s certain apps that work on iphones, but if you try to use them on an android…good luck…it won’t work. While most people’s geek quotient (or “G.Q.”) is not high enough to explain why this reality exists (I am one of those people), a simple way to explain it is to say the iphone app is not compatible with the android phone. When we talk about compatibility [Continue reading...]
