Reflecting a Kaleidoscope of Joy and Love

Kaleidoscope Viewers

As I was waiting for our luggage to arrive in the baggage claim area, I looked up and saw a man with a mustache and tattoos all over his neck and head.  I realized after looking a bit longer, that it was a face hood/gaiter mask.  It made me immediately think of how easy it…

Shine Bright in the Darkness of the World

From the patio outside the apartment we are staying in, I can see a lighthouse out on the far bluff.  I did some research and have found out that Hams Bluff Lighthouse has no longer been in operation since the mid 1990s.  The lighthouse was built by the Danish and first lit in 1915.  When…

Behind Enemy Lines

We had so many questions from readers that we decided to expand the teaching included in this book.  Additionally, you will find a dedicated Question and Answer section in the appendix.  Not really a paper copy reader?  We've got you covered.  Our e-book format is available here.

Behind Enemy Lines takes a look at the power of the Holy Spirit and how we walk in victory rather than defeat and how that often creates questions among those we encounter. You will be reminded of your identity in Christ and be guided toward applying biblical principles of doing like Jesus did. You will uncover practical insights for participating in what God is doing in and through His children when they submit to His will.

Entering the Throne Room with a Garment of Praise

The Process of Making Worship Flags “So, if you’re going to make a flag for someone, do you have to spend a lot of time with them first?” she asked.  I wasn’t prepared with an answer. After all, to that point I’d only made flags for myself and given some as gifts to friends. “Let’s…
