Hello folks! Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve published anything on this site. My wife, Heather, and I have been extremely busy. We’ve also been learning a lot about Jesus and walking with Him as a couple. I do plan on continuing to contribute to this blog. In fact, I have a lot of ideas […]

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32 NIV) This is a common saying among many believers and non-believers alike. I’ve used it many times.

 I received an email from a friend today with this post that was written by Kathy Marie Huff. It’s beautiful. Enjoy. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count […]
