I’ve had a number of people come up to me and ask about writing their own book and what obstacles lie in the way. I’ve told them they are their own worst enemy and if they want to write, well, to write.
So I’ve decided to host a writer’s workshop webinar on June 17th at 7:00pm central.
I will cover the following:
I may not have all the answers, but I will share everything I know. I want to help other people put their message out, especially if it is a message of hope and encouragement.

I want to speak to fathers for a moment. Have you talked to you son about his behavior with women and girls? Does he understand how to appropriately conduct himself with the opposite sex?
I recently had the opportunity to witness some teenage boys acting very inappropriately. These are not hoodlums, or street kids, but good churchgoing kids who “SHOULD” know better. They obviously feel entitled to refer to girls as animals, and they feel free to discuss sexual acts they want to perform on them. This took place in a church!!!
When I grew up, I fell in love with stories about King Arthur and the Knights of the round table. Those stories made me want to act with chivalry and honor the women around me. I open doors, I let them go first, I give up my seat for them. I never debase or objectify them. But somewhere, somehow that love of chivalry has gotten lost. As men and fathers, it’s up to us to fix that. We need to get busy.
If that doesn’t convince you, then consider this. Would you like one of those boys to say and do those things to your wife, your mother, or your daughter. By allowing it to happen, you are allowing it to happen to all. Because any girl will likely be a mother, could possibly be a sister, and is somebody’s daughter. Let’s also put it in a Christian context. Each girl is a daughter of the King. They are children of God, just like you and me. With that relationship comes a certain dignity, that we attack if we allow such behavior to continue.
As fathers, we are the example. If our cell phone is more interesting than our kid, we fail. If the ball game is more important, we fail. If a night on the town with the boys is more important, than we fail, and we fail twice because that behavior will be duplicated by your son with every relationship he will ever have. Yes being a parent is hard, but what is our other option, we raise them or we turn them out into the streets and let their feral nature take over.
Heavenly Father, please direct the actions of fathers. Help them understand they the male authority, and example in the family. They can be tough, but also can be soft and loving. They need to raise their sons to follow your path, and to love their fellow man. In particular, they need to teach their sons to be honorable to women and girls. Help us all do a better job. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Are you happy with the state of our Nation right now? Are you an American and are happy with the culture, the government, the economy? Do you think we are going in the right direction?
If you answered Yes to any of those questions, you are likely in the minority. We are a fractured society with more differences being pointed out than reasons to come together. We differ on race, education, privilege, taxes, cars, houses, rent vs. buy, rural vs. city. But one thing is the same about us. We all live here. We are all sons and daughters of immigrants, whether voluntary or not, and we are recipients of a legacy from those who have gone before.
I have whalers, road builder, railroad watchmen, county officials, mail route drivers, farmers, mechanics, electricians, realtors, truck drivers, and many other ancestors. But they were all here for freedom, and they were all influenced by the love of this country. I love this country as well, that is why I’ve written my second bible study for Prayer for this Nation. It is named (imaginatively) Another Prayer for Our Nation, and is now available at Amazon in both softcover and e-book format.
You wrote a book, what does it mean to me?
Do you think this nation is a Christian nation? I’ll show you that it is.
Do you need forgiveness, or need to offer some? I’ll show you how that affects this country.
Do we need more truth in our lives and in our society? Let’s tie that together with prayer.
Do we need personal or national restoration? Let’s talk about that also.
Who do you turn to for guidance? I’ll suggest we turn to God.
Do you think our New Generation needs help and prayer? Me too.
Do you pray for our Leaders? If not, repent and join me.
Do we need a national Christian revival? If you think so, I’ll offer how that might look in our homes, offices, government buildings and churches.
If we want to see this country improve, it’s up to us. We have a unique opportunity to roll up our sleeves, help our fellow man, pray through the problems and make this country great again. Not by changing the government, but by changing hearts and minds, one at a time, to know, accept, and believe in Jesus Christ.
