Three years ago, I went to a meeting that terrified me but completely changed my life. This is the story of how I learn to "run toward the roar" in the wake of my dad losing his ministry and nearly losing mine too. I was challenged to forgive, I found a new calling, and I gained loyal friends to support me. I hope this video inspires you to run toward the roar.
I am so excited to share that I have another short book available for Valentine's Day, based on the blog posts I wrote while I was on the book team for Pulling Back the Shades and when I created one of the first spoken words on YouTube "Pulling Back the Shades of Grey". Curious on what the book is about? Here's the summary:
Does our culture's celebration of Valentine's Day really honor Saint Valentine? Would Saint Valentine disapprove of the Fifty Shades series and his name being used to promote it?
In our world today, love is defined in many ways that are vague. The love that Saint Valentine believed in was anything but grey - it was black and white, and sacrificial in its nature. In this short book, we explore the life of Saint Valentine, what his life and martyrdom can teach us today, and use this information to evaluate how he would most likely feel about the Fifty Shades being promoted in his name when the films were released. Even if you know very little about the series, this book will help equip you with a perspective from a biblical worldview.
Includes a bonus article "Refuting Fifty Shades of Arguments", addressing 5 common arguments made by fans in favor of the Fifty Shades series, exploring the fault in their logic, and teaching how you can engage in conversations with them in a God-honoring way.

Is the nativity story we know today the same one recorded in the Bible?
Nativity scenes have become an iconic and beloved tradition of the Christmas season. Based on these decorations, plays, and films of this story, most of us think we have a pretty good idea of what the nativity looked like. However, when you take the opportunity to compare these traditional elements of the nativity story against the information the Bible gives us about the birth of Jesus, it becomes apparent that they don't match up.
Using biblical study and research, this book exposes 17 traditional elements of the nativity story not mentioned in the Bible, challenging us to use the Bible as their foundation of knowledge before relying on tradition or assumptions. This will allow us to dismiss false facts so that we can focus on the real reason we celebrate the birth of Jesus - the miracle of His incarnation and willingness to become "Emmanuel", which should cause us to celebrate, not just on Christmas, but all year long.
Revisiting the Nativity is available as an ebook and paperback booklet on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Get your copy today!

What if there was a way for Christian to redeem the celebration of Halloween?
Halloween has been a topic of controversy among Christians for centuries. The arguments both for and against it are many, making it difficult for us to discern which side to take. Many of those that are opposed continue to bring up the origins of the holiday as being blatantly evil, believing nothing good can come out of it. Those that are for it would say that it’s just harmless entertainment or thrills. How are we supposed to decide if it’s OK to celebrate any part of it?
Although it’s true that there are blatantly evil aspects to this holiday, there are ways for parts of the holiday to be redeemed. For this to happen, we need to take the opportunity to learn more about the history of the holiday and to recognize the evil parts of this holiday for what they are. Then we will use this knowledge to discern which parts of the holiday can be used and redeemed to bring glory back to the God that has the power over the darkness in our world today.
