One of the ways Pastor Thomas and I fellowship is over a cup of QuikTrip cappuccino and a muffin after 7:14 pm Bible study on Wednesday nights. Wednesdays are very busy for us, because we teach a Leadership Bible Study at the 11A hour in our community and run errands until the 7:14p Bible Study time at our church. Therefore the QuikTrip fellowship is very calming after a long and busy day.

Choices

Posted on August 29, 2014 at 3:35 PM Comments comments (0)

When I think about choices, my mind immediately goes to Abram’s choice to leave his country, leave his kinfolks, and get away from his father’s house.

In my second book, “No Bugs; Just Profits”, I give readers guidelines for making choices that will bring balance to the spirit, soul and body. Those...
