I’m a writer, editor, family man, Christian, and encourager of those who want to find happiness and wholeness in life. On this site you’ll find me discussing my two big passions. On my writer’s blog, “A Writer’s Way of Seeing” aspiring and published writers will find tips, insights, and encouragement in their journey to success.
My other blog is all about what I call “The Magnificent Christian Life.” That phrase came about as I was working on my popular devotional Magnificent Prayer and I began to realize that it’s not just prayer that’s magnificent, it’s all of the Christian life. My hope is you’ll stick around as we explore that magnificence and put it into practice in our daily life. To be clear: the magnificent Christian life is not free from problems and trials, but every Christian has the capacity, through Christ, of persevering through their trials and coming out stronger. Much of what I write is based on what I’ve experienced as Christian for these past few decades. I’ve learned some lessons that I believe are worth passing on to others. In addition, many great Christian authors of the past have helped me on my journey, so I draw deeply from their writings in just about all the books I create. Some of my favorite writers include Andrew Murray, Hannah Whitall Smith, Charles Spurgeon, Watchman Nee, and many others. (Check out my recommended book page here). Also, as you browse my site, you’ll see some of the unsolicited responses to my books from people just like you. I write to change lives and I’m gratified when someone tells me I’ve helped change theirs by pointing them in the direction of God’s secure love.
My newest book is Power in the Promises. In this helpful book, you’ll learn how to appropriate the promises God has for you as you deal with afflictions, trials, financial woes, relational issues, and much more. 2 Peter 1:3-4 tells us: “His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”
God has freely given up promises by which we’re able to overcome every obstacle blocking our way to happiness, but keep in mind that the promises of God are for those who trust in Him. They’re for His children. Those who have been born into His kingdom through the new birth. If you’ve not yet made the decision to follow Christ, that’s the next decision you need to make.
